  • Q:

    I am a maltes breeder. Can I use oratene on my dogs. Is water additive the best or is toothpaste better. If do you have oratene toothpaste.?
    Asked on 1/12/2015 by connie5 from Newkensingtoon, pa

    1 answer

    • A:

      The manufacturer of Oratene does not make a toothpaste dosage form of Oratene, however, they do make an Oratene gel. Both the Oratene gel and Oratene drinking water additive are safe for daily use in your dog. The Oratene gel is to be applied to your pet’s upper and lower gums in the morning, evening and after meals and does not require brushing. The Oratene drinking water additive is a flavorless solution to be added to your pet’s water bowl upon every water change. These products are most effective when used on a consistent basis. Please consult your veterinarian prior to starting any new medications or over-the-counter products for your pet.

  • Q:

    What amount of the Drinking Water Additive for cats would be used to 1/4 cup water. Cats do not drink near the water that dogs do, so making up a quart is too much.
    Asked on 8/22/2014 by Wendle from Seattle, WA, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Wendle,

      According to the manufacturer 1 pump of Oratene is 1 cubic centimeter or 1 milliliter. One pump can treat 2 cups of water. If you wanted to treat 1 cup of water you could obtain an oral syringe and measure 0.5 milliliters of Oratene, then add to one cup of water. To treat 0.5 or ½ cup you would need to measure 0.25 milliliters of Oratene. To treat 0.25 or ¼ of a cup , you would need to measure 0.125 milliliters of Oratene.

      Thank you,

  • Q:

    Aloe Vera in Oratene gels? Is this products safe for cats ? I Read aloe is toxic to cats? We were looking to purchase both oratene maintenance and antiseptic gels for Our Sphynx cats send bengal cat
    Asked on 8/17/2014 by Onlyme from Florida, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      According to the manufacturer, the Aloe Vera contained in Oratene is an extract with the toxic part excluded. The part that is excluded could be toxic if the cat ate the plant. Additionally there is only a small percent of Aloe Vera in Oratene. Therefore Oratene is safe for cats if used as directed.

  • Q:

    I got this from a veterinary dentist and the description is"for veterinary use only" & "helps remove plaque and inhibit odor causing bacteria" rather than the one you show which states "helps remove plaque biofilm. Do you have the other one?
    Asked on 7/19/2014 by sandyandannie from Pittsburgh, PA, United States

    2 answers

    • A:

      The older product (labeled Biotene - for veterinary use only) states that it "helps remove plaque and inhibit odor causing bacteria" the newer version (Oratene) states that it "helps remove plaque BIOFILM and inhibit." The ingredients are in a different order, meaning the strongest ingredient on the older version is not as prevalent in the new version.

      Answered on 7/22/2014 by sandyandanni from Pittsburgh
    • A:

      I am not sure exactly which product you are referring to with the Oratene products, but the mouthwash and the drinking water additive both do state "inhibit odor causing bacteria" as well as the "helps remove plaque biofilm". If you look at the product page on the VetRxDirect website, there is a package insert tab where there are links for each product. Those links will give a detailed description of the product from the manufacturer.

  • Q:

    Wondering if you use fluoride in your products?
    Asked on 2/13/2014 by Neeko from Chicago, IL, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      The manufacturer for the Oratene products (formerly called Biotene) does not list fluoride as an ingredient in any of the four products we carry - the antiseptic oral gel, maintenance oral gel, drinking water additive, or the breath freshener.

  • Q:

    how long does a tube last for a toy poodle
    Asked on 1/27/2014 by yahoo from Houston, TX, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      How long any product lasts depends on a variety of factors, including how much you use and how often. As you reference a tube in your question, you are probably asking about the maintenance oral gel or the antiseptic oral gel.

      The directions for use on the maintenance oral gel: Apply a 1/2” strip to upper and lower gums daily. Best if used in the morning, at night and after meals.

      The directions for use for the antiseptic oral gel: Apply a 1/2” strip to upper and lower gums twice daily. Continue use for 5-7 days or until infection subsides.

      Thank you,

  • Q:

    Been giving for a few days. One my dogs, Austrailian Terrior, seems to be a liitle confused. If they get too much can this happen?
    Asked on 9/21/2013 by Marie

    2 answers

    • A:

      I tried a water additive a few years ago and my one small dog got very confused as well and kept going back to to drink over and over more than she ever did. I stopped using and she went back to normal. I want to use water additive but I fear it is not as safe as it seems, I guess depending on your dog- my other 2 were fine. I may try this kind but use half the recomended dose.

    • A:

      Marie,

      Oratene (formerly Biotene) Veterinarian Drinking Water Additive does not contain alcohol, antibiotics, xylitol, or chlorhexidine and is safe to use when following the manufacturer's directions. There are no side effects associated with Oratene Veterinarian products.  These oral care products contain naturally-occurring enzymes that reduce your pet's mouth odor and decrease plaque formation on your pet's teeth. We recommend discussing your pet's symptoms with your dog's veterinarian.

      Thank you,

My 11 yr. old shepherd mix's teeth are improving with age, thanks to this product! My neighbor told me about it, and she was getting it from her veterinarian. I got it for half the price she was paying, and for the first time since he was young, my dog did not get a bad "report" on his teeth when he went for his check-up at the end of last year! My cat shares the drinking water and I'm sure it's helping her as well! Easy to use - just three squirts in the drinking water when you change it. Need to be consistent with it. Pricing and service is great from this company! I highly recommend this product and VetRX!!

Comments about PKB Animal Health Oratene:

My dog has a collapsed tracha muscle and it is very important to keep his coughing to as little as possible. He take numerous medications that cause dry mouth, but with us using this product we have kept his cough down to very low. I've been using this product for 2 years now and quit satisfied.

Comments about PKB Animal Health Oratene:

I use the Oratene antiseptic gel in a multi-cat household in which stomatitis is a common problem. The gel can cure a mild case and improve the cat's comfort level in a moderate case. Use it as soon as you see signs of inflammation: a cry of pain, jumping back while eating, a dark discharge around the mouth. In most cases you should eventually get your cat to a vet for an evaluation, a steroid injection, or maybe dental surgery, but in the meantime, the gel makes a big difference.

Comments about PKB Animal Health Oratene:

Best product for my chihuahua's teeth so far. After having his teeth cleaned 8 months ago and several teeth pulled, I was fearing the worst, i.e. loosing all of his teeth. After only a few months of cleaning, his teeth were collecting tarter again. I used some other products and tooth pastes, but they didn't do much. The Oratene antiseptic gel worked wonders, and followed by the Oratene maintenance gel and water additive, my chihuahua's teeth are white again, and his gums look healthier. Great products.

Comments about PKB Animal Health Oratene:

After more than a year on a downward spiral of antibiotics and prednisone, even a lip fold surgery, for chronic ulcerative stomatitis, I found a Greyhound rescue site that strongly recommended Oratene Antiseptic Oral Gel. In desperation, I started him on it the end of October, 2013. In just a few days there was improvement and soon he was back to the playful boy that had been gone for so long. He is now on Oratene Maintenance Gel and doing well as of 1-25-2014.
