How dogs & cats ever survived in the wild is a mystery to me. Between specialized diets, shots, checkups, and special hotels for when the family goes on vacation, it really does make one wonder "who owns who?" Especially when it gets down taking care of their teeth. I know they their own techniques, but with today's advancements, it's only a matter of time before they start getting their golden grills (if they don't have them already).

Like with Plaque Attack. All a dog or cat has to do is lift their gums an have their teeth sprayed. Then the owners can proceed to peel grapes for them.

But is Plaque Attack as safe for your pets as its advertised?

Claims - How Plaque Attack Works

According to the official TV/product website, Plaque Attach has the following claims & features:

All Natural & Perfectly Safe Save Money Healthy Prevention Helps Cure Halitosis 45-day money-back guarantee for the product price

And according to the product site, here's how to work Plaque Attack:

"The ingredients mix with your pet's saliva when applied on your pet's teeth and completely coats your pet’s teeth and mouth. This process kills harmful bacteria and loosens plaque and tartar."

You can find more detailed instructions at the bottom of the Instructions tab on We know, odd place for them.

The timeliness of the results depend on the condition of the teeth.

Review - Plaque Attack Complaints, Frauds, Rip-Offs, Scams...

As for purchasing, there has been little complaints. We stumbled across a couple who appear to have hit the "submit" button twice, but other than that the Plaque Attack has been easy to order.

Most people who've written about the Plaque Attack also don't seem to argue as to whether or not the product works. The issue seems to be whether or not the product should be used at all.

The Grain Alcohol Debate

The ingredients in Plaque Attack are as follows:

  • distilled water
  • grain alcohol
  • grapefruit seed extract
  • proprietary blend of herbs & natural oils. (neem oil, thyme oil, rosemary oil, peppermint oil)

It's the grain alcohol that gets pet owners' attention - especially the cat owners. Wow, we thought it was a bad idea to cross a cat. Don't cross a cat owner or debate them on their facts. They're impressive!

The concern is that alcohol is bad for pets. Cats moreso than dogs.

In Plaque Attack, grain alcohol (aka ethanol) is used as a solvent for the medication. We did a little deeper digging and discovered the use of grain alcohol in pet medications isn't that all uncommon.

The fear is that if the pets receive too much ethanol, they could develop ethanol toxicity which could result in permanent damage or death. Of the forums we searched, the following had some really passionate arguments:

What we've discovered is that the debate can go back and forth with both pet owners and care givers. The best advice we found is the advice we'll pass along now:  if you're not sure whether or not the product is safe for your pet, check with your pet's Vet. In the end, every pet is different.

Neutrogena SkinID [Review] - Free Skin ID Evaluation

With so many acne products out and about, on television, on the shelves, at the impulse counter, next to the Redbox and vending machines...It's enough to make one wonder as to why the competition is so fierce. Is it because no single product works well enough? Or is it because people have a hard time telling which product works for them. Maybe Neutrogena is onto something with the SkinID.
