What exactly is TEEF!?
TEEF! is a powdered water additive designed to improve the oral health of your dog. It contains Protektin42™, a non-toxic, prebiotic formula backed by 10 years of science.
This prebiotic formula consists mainly of specialised soluble fibre, which serves as a food source for microbes. This in turn can help support the beneficial bacteria and other microorganisms in the oral cavity. A healthy microbiome means better oral health for your dog.

FAQs about TEEF!
What is Protektin42™?
The Protektin42 formula is a patented combination of 4 natural, human-grade ingredients which have been specifically formulated and optimised for promoting healthy oral bacterial growth while disrupting harmful bacterial proliferation in the mouth.
What ingredients are in Protektin42™?
We are proud to say that the Protektin42 formula uses 100% human grade ingredients that are all classified as GRAS (Generally Recognised As Safe) for food use by the FDA in America. The powdered formula is completely dissolved in water and consists of soluble fibre, vitamin B6, L-arginine amino acid and sodium bicarbonate.

Who invented TEEF!?
Dr Emily Stein is the co-founder and inventor of TEEF!. She earned her PhD in Microbiology at the University of California at Berkeley and then completed her fellowship in Immunology and Rheumatology at Stanford University. Her exceptional understanding of microbes and their impact on human and animal health helped her develop the unique Protektin42™ formula for dogs.
When should I use TEEF! for my dog?
TEEF! is recommended for use in:
- Puppies and healthy dogs to help maintain balance between oral bacteria and disrupt harmful bacteria.
- Dogs showing signs of bad breath to help maintain healthy teeth and gums, and restore balance to the oral microbiome.
- Dogs following dental cleaning to help promote repopulation of the oral cavity with beneficial bacteria and maximise the benefits of the procedure.
Why can't I just give chews to my dog?
TEEF! works in a completely different way to dental chews available for your dog. Most chews are typically given only 1-2 times a day or even a week and tend to only provide benefits while they are being chewed. In comparison, when TEEF! Is added to your dog’s drinking water, it is benefiting their entire mouth and helping control bad breath every time your dog drinks – which is multiple times each day! We recommend using TEEF! daily, as part of a multimodal approach to maintaining healthy teeth and gums, as recommended by your veterinarian.
How will I know if TEEF! is working?
TEEF! works best when it is used daily. You should notice an improvement to your pet’s breath and whiter teeth after just 2 weeks of use. TEEF! also helps your dog’s gums stay healthy and pink.
Is TEEF! safe to use in Puppies?
Yes, TEEF! has no known side effects in puppies. Due to their somewhat sensitive puppy gastrointestinal tracts, we recommend introducing TEEF! gradually into their water over 2-3 days to allow them to get used to it. The safety of these ingredients in pregnant and nursing animals has also been established through extensive testing.
What if I have multiple pets at home?
For multi-pet households we recommend adding one scoop to a 2-2.5L jug of water and using this to top up water bowls throughout the day.
Why does the water turn yellow when TEEF! is added?
This slight colour change is normal, as the vitamin B6 in the Protektin42™ formula turns yellow when it comes into contact with water. The slight change in colour won’t affect the flavour of the water so your pet shouldn’t notice a thing.
What if my cat drinks TEEF!?
Don’t worry, TEEF! has no known side effects in cats. Cats, however, have very different diets compared to dogs. The efficacy of this formulation has not yet been tested on cats.
How should I introduce TEEF! to young and smaller breed dogs?
Where can I buy TEEF! for my dog?
TEEF! can be purchased through your local vet clinic or online at Obay
