Since I got no reponse I guess no one use it before. Here is an update after using it for a week.

My cat use to have very bad breath now it improving alot and the teeth looks a little whiter too.

BTW, I don't work for them.

I only just heard about it when I read an ad for it in a trade magazine this past week. I am *very* interested in it, and will be discussing this with my vet.

Glad to hear it is working well so far for your kitty.

I just did a quick google and found out about it! I wonder if anyone knows if it is available in the UK? It sounds rather interesting!

My local feed store has it and I would be interested in trying it but $70 is a bit on the expensive side, do you feel it has worked enough to justify spending that much on it (I brush my cats teeth anyway)

It says 240 sprays... do you just spray it into their mouth or onto the teeth directly or onto food etc? How many sprays per 'cleaning' did you use?

Oh my! $70!!

The site I read said that it made a big difference to the teeth of a kitty with a tendancy to get peridontal disease!

I would be concerned with wasting the stuff though, if I missed and had to use numerous sprays!

I know, I probably don't spend that on toothpaste in a year for myself

With 4 cats, a couple of sprays a cleaning, $70 wouldn't last very long

For the first 35days you need to spray twice a day one spray at a time, no food or water 30min before/after the spray. After 35days do it 2-3 times a week. Just open the month and shoot into it, don't have to be on the bad area.
the guy told me each bottle should last a yr.

I always late to work in the morning so I can only manage to do it once a day(at night), and I am supprise cats don't hate it.

I am very interested in this product. However, the price is a bit steep. From looking at their web site it appears the primary ingredients are water and 25% ethyl alcohol and trace elements of two herbs, Lamiaceae and Rosaceae. It just doesn't seem like it should be that expensive, has anyone seen a less expensive similarly formulated product?

I saw this product listed on other forums, Life for Teeth Spray http://www.petzlife.com/
This product uses different ingredients, but it looks like water and alcohol still top the list ... this is what they say on their web site

The main ingredient in Life for Teeth and Brush Away is grapefruit seed extract. Grapefruit seed extract, Grape seed extract, Thyme oil, Neem oil, Rosemary oil, and Peppermint oil. These are all specially formulated with distilled water and grain alcohol to produce one of the most effective and safest dental products ever produced. (click here for individual ingredients definitions)

I haven't used either one of these products but from what I've read on other forums, they both work, but of course results are different for each animal. Also there are liquid additives you can put in the water bowl to help control bacteria growth in the mouth .. these are less expensive, but, and I'm just guessing here, probably also less effective. (I've tried the Petkin brand additive and it does seem to help with stinky breath, I can't tell if it actually helps with their teeth, it might be slowing or preventing new tartar build up) I'd be really interested to hear feed back about these extracts and herbs that are being used and whether they actually do anything or if it's really just the alcohol killing bacteria, preventing build up and breaking down the old plaque and tartar.

This is very interesting. Does anyone else have any experience with it.

This sounds interesting although it's very expensive. My cat has just had to have a dental (and 2 teeth removed) and I'd really like to prevent him having to have another one in a few years time.

Is it even possible with a cat?

It is expensive but not as expensive as quoted if you do a bit of a web search. (No surprise I love to do those!)
I found it for $40 at felineinstincts, here is the page listing it's price: http://www.felineinstincts.com/order...derNow-idx.php

another site called thegildedpaw.com sells it for $49.99.

I tried it with one of my rescues, Tippy, who has stomatitis..he acted like I was drowning him and it was a very messy process. Applying oral gel with my fingers, as gentle as he was, was like trying that with a shark. Ugh!

At the moment, he's getting T/D with his food each day, and it has reduced the redness along the gum line...but I really want to do the Leba III, if my vet feels in his case, it will help.

Yeah, I know what you mean, mine go into lock down any time you get near their mouths ... I'll tell ya, it's easier to pry a horse's jaws apart than either one of my kitties. Getting in there long enough to brush their teeth is impossible, I have about .75 seconds if I'm really sneaky and with a lot of luck That's why I'm thinking this spray might work for us, I just don't want to over pay if there are comparable products that cost less.

^^Maybe this site can arrange a group buy...

I paid $70cdn for it, I take the chance because it cost me alot more if I have to go the the vet for dental cleaning.
post #18 of 26


Is anyone reading my note with where to buy it for almost half what was quoted here as the price?

Did I kill this thread?

Oh that's a lot better! I'll have to do a bit of search myself to see if it's available in the UK!

About the mouthwash question, it is incredibly difficult to administer! We had to do this for my RB Disco, as she had sever gingivitis It would take three of us to treat her and as Pat mentioned, it seemed as though we were drowning her!

I just joined here, but I wanted to stress how important it is for older cats to have their teeth cleaned.

My dad refused to ever take his adorable siamese cat to the vet, because his other cat had a reaction to a vaccine and died. Anyway, the siamese when he got older, started to have these horrible seizures. If you've never seen a creature you care about have one, believe me, you don't want to.

I finally took matters into my own hands and took the cat to the vet. He was older and had many health problems, but the vet said that getting rid of all the bacteria in his mouth would be a good start. He cleaned his teeth and the cat never had another seizure and lived in relatively good health for several more years.

The moral of the story is take care of them kitty teef!

I looked into the $40 US one, the shipping to canada with the exchange and tax at the border would make it the same as my local feed store Might have to see if I can get someone from the comany down there to pick some up cheap and ship it up with work stuff

An integrative medicine vet (uses both conventional and holistic meds) recommended the Leba III to me over a year ago. I consulted with my conventional vet about the alcohol content. She was wary of it, saying that the alcohol could be irritating to the sensitive tissues of the mouth. In addition, alcohol is not advisable for cats to be ingesting.

My vet and dental tech agree - the best (though not the easiest) thing to do for your cat's teeth is to brush them.

Thanks for sharing this. This then, would not be appropriate for a kitty with stomatitis imho.
