Teddy's Pride Oral Care Review and Giveaway



I talk a lot about my daughter as she really is the main focus of my blog and really, of my life. You’ve seen the pictures, I’m sure you understand! Before Rosemary came into my life, I had a fur baby named Lucy.

Lucy is still a big part of our world, but of course has taken a backseat to the baby, as that’s just how life happens. She still gets plenty of love, although I’m sure not nearly enough for her! My husband and I have always tried to take great care of her as we really do consider her part of the family. She has the best food available, the best treats, the best toys, and so on.

One department we’ve always slacked on though is her oral hygiene. I’ve read that you’re supposed to brush your dog’s teeth at least once a week to keep up and I’m completely embarrassed to say it’s nowhere near once a week that we work on this. We’re bad pet parents. Lucy absolutely hated it whenever we tried it, so we kind of gave up. When we take her to get groomed, we pay the groomer to do it then. So that’s really not too often at all unfortunately.

Well, recently I was given the opportunity to try a newer product called Teddy’s Pride Oral Care. Normally on here, I would stick to products strictly for either Mom or baby, but since I’m such a slacker in the oral care department with Lucy, I jumped on the opportunity.

First the test subject, Meet Lucy.


Lucy is my two year old Yorkshire terrier mix puppy dog and first baby. When I say Terrier, I mean terror! She’s such a great dog, but has the energy of five dogs, I swear! I call her my awareness dog. She lets you know as soon as anyone or anything is coming anywhere near our home. A watch dog might try to attack if someone came close, where Lucy is strictly an awareness dog as she’d just run if they came after her. Oh Lucy. At least we always know if a squirrel is nearby, even at 3AM.

Before I go through my review of the product, here’s a little bit of information for you in case you’re unaware of exactly what it is.

As you can probably tell by the name, Oral Care, is for, you guessed it – oral care. It’s the fist probiotic product for pets (both cats and dogs) that promotes complete oral care. The completely natural probiotics (Probiora3) give pet’s naturally fresher breath and cleaner, whiter teeth. Teddy’s Pride maintains that within a few days bad breath is improved and within a few weeks, teeth will be whiter and cleaner. The Oral Care is odorless and tasteless so pets should not have an aversion to the product. It comes in powder form that you sprinkle on the food once a day and has a measured scoop for easy measuring.

I could go on and on about the facts and safety standards that the product lists, but that would take up a lot of my blog! For further information I really suggest checking out the Teddy’s Pride website. They have so much information to check out that I’m sure they can answer any questions you may have about their product. The website contains information about how the product works, the exact ingredients inside, the quality and safety of the product and so much more.

Please read all about this product before you purchase and consult with your veterinarian before giving your pet any new products!

So, we started Lucy on the Teddy’s Pride, Oral Care three weeks ago and here’s what I think of it. Please remember that just like humans, our pets are all unique as well, so your results my differ from mine.

The first day we gave it to Lucy; she knew something was up with her food dish. She sniffed at it a bit and then ate it like any other day. Lucy tends to be a bit picky with her food (can you say high maintenance dog?), so I was a little nervous that she wouldn’t eat it. Not the case. Lucy continues to be picky about when and where she eats her food, but there has been no change since she’s started the Teddy’s Pride.

I of course tried to get a picture of her teeth (to see how much whiter they actually would get), but that was impossible. I managed to get a picture, but you really can't see on the color with my camera, so I cannot really show you a comparison as far as how the color of her teeth changed. I will state that since she’s only a little over two, her teeth weren’t nasty or anything like that. I really do think they’re whiter, but I unfortunately can’t physically show you how much. It’s only been three weeks, but I can definitely tell a difference.
As for the fresher breath, I also think I notice a difference here as well. I really wish there was some way to prove this, but unfortunately you’d have to have come to my home both before we started and then again today. Please picture me chasing down my dog to take a big whiff of the before and after breath smell. My dog is extremely squirmy, so this was quite the task! Again, my dog wasn’t an overly stinky dog by any means, but I do think I can notice a difference with the breath.

So would I recommend this product? If you’re like me and my husband who have a hard time with the brushing of your pets teeth, absolutely!

It makes me feel so much better knowing Lucy is getting Oral Care now and I would’ve started this before had I even known about it. I really feel like you have nothing to lose. The product is 100% guaranteed money back, so if you were really unsatisfied, you could even get your money back. The Oral Care is just $24.95 for a 60 day supply which I think is a great deal considering it’s promoting my pet’s healthy teeth AND I’m not even doing any brushing!

Check out the website for details on how to purchase! If you aren’t quite ready to purchase this product and would love to try it for free, then I’ve got great news for you! Teddy’s Pride has offered one of my readers a FREE 60 day supply to try out on your pet today!

  5. I visited "Teddy's Pride" and learned In the questions and answers section that dogs can use Teddy's Oral Care even on medication. There are no known side effects

    They also recomment it be used before and after treatment with antibiotics.

    Sounds like a great product and I sure could use this, I have 5 dogs!

  12. I had disgusting breath for years. I had no friends and even family keep me at a distance.
    I was flossing brushing and rinsing everyday but still had bad breath. I spent thousands on all kinds of products claiming to stop bad breath but still had bad breath. I came across an eBook from badhalitosisbreathCom and it gave me my first insight into my problem. After I did all the advice in the eBook it identified Post Nasal Drip as the primary issue with eating and cleaning as the oral problem.
    So I was happily surprised when my brother asked the following week why my breath didn’t smell any more, I told him what I’d done he’s like thank god for that book!
    Now 6 months later I have my first girlfriend and worked up enough courage to tell her about what I was like just 1 year ago. She said I smelt better then any other boyfriend she’d had. Music to my ears!
