|I agree with the other posters. Dry food isn't the healthiest option and it seems like she is having issues with the Purina food (which isn't a good one to begin with). Dry food does not clean your cats teeth, and in fact, it causes more sugar in your cat's system which is not good for it. No commercial pet food is going keep your cat's teeth clean. The only way to do that is to brush them. I brush my cats' teeth once every two days. It can be difficult to get them to like it at first, but perseverance and confidence from the guardian go a long way, not to mention a treat when it's over. I have a bell in the drawer where I keep their teeth stuff, so they know when the bell rings it's time for teeth brushing and a treat! They usually come running...
I have never used dental chews, but definitely check the ingredients if you are going to use them because there can be a lot of inappropriate ingredients in them. I am surprised your vet hasn't told you to brush the cat's teeth.
