Ever since Rolo came into our lives he has always had horrible, disgusting teeth and we have been working on getting them into tip-top shape. This has been a very slow process but we are better off now that what it was like when we first got him. His first major surgery was not long after we adopted him to remove a broken back tooth as well as a few up front. He also still has tartar build up along with a few black marks on his teeth. Rolo was a stray, so likely this visit to the vet to get his teeth worked on was the first time in his life and he isn’t a young pup. We still have a very long way to go with his mouth to get it to where I want it to be but at least it is better than it was! This now brings us to our next pet product review that has been aiding in the “recovery” of Rolo’s mouth.

Let’s start this product review!
Appearance & Design

The bottles remind me of the dentist; they are crisp & clean-looking, which is perfect because well they are for oral care! I loved that the spray bottle had a no startle lid on it. Rolo doesn’t like spray bottles, he normally runs away from this “dog perfume” I have for him at home. He didn’t jump, he didn’t startle, he just let me spray it on his teeth.
Smell & Taste Test by Rolo

Rolo & I received two bottles of the water additive, original flavor and chicken. We opted to try the chicken flavor first. Rolo’s water goes into an older juice container that I keep in the fridge door. As you can see from the photo below in the “resting process”, Rolo doesn’t mind the flavor one bit. Its like eating chicken water! and Rolo loves chicken! After adding the additive into his water it did smell like chicken that’s for sure! Rolo has his two bff’s over for a slumber party last week and they even enjoyed drinking the chicken water. The water additive comes in 4 flavors, vanilla mint, chicken, salmon and original. The oral spray comes in vanilla mint flavor and Rolo didn’t mind it either!
Creativity of Product

When products are put out on the market that make our lives easier, I smile! This literally takes 20 seconds to add the water additive into a big bottle and serve to Rolo. I use a big bottle to make up a batch so we are good for 2 or so days.
“Scientifically formulated and clinically proven to maintain good oral hygiene by attacking periodontal disease. It helps prevent plaque, breaks apart tartar, and also freshens breath! It’s easy to use – just add 2 capfuls to 600ml of your pet’s drinking water (1 capful is 10ml). Daily use, as directed, is important for best results. Contains coactiv+™ technology – a unique formulation of food-grade ingredients scientifically developed (patent pending) to breakdown biofilm, where harmful bacteria associated with periodontal disease multiply.
Bluestem oral spray is the only proven safe product of its kind that attacks the harmful bacteria that cause periodontal disease in pets. The difference is coactiv+™ — a powerful technology that uses only food-grade, scientifically developed ingredients to safely breakdown biofilm, where the harmful bacteria associated with periodontal disease multiply. The no-startle nozzle is easy-to-use and allows you to treat even the most sensitive of pets. Just gently lift the upper lip to expose teeth and gums. Spray liberally on each side of the mouth, coating teeth and gums well. Applying once or twice daily, as directed, is important for best results” (Paragraph Credits: http://www.bluestempets.com)
Rolo’s breath is so much better now! It used to be terrible and of course while I was laying on the couch he would come up and lay some hot breath right onto my face. Now he is minty fresh! It was super hard to try to get photos with my fingers jammed inside his mouth but as you can tell from just the top photo to the one below it his top big canine tooth in the back (the one with the worst amount of tartar) has less tartar/decay on it! The black spots are also starting to shrink As you can tell on the tooth after his big long tooth it had more black stuff on it and at the bottom its going away along with the tartar that was above it!! I am super happy to see results already and its just by adding the water additive into his water!
