Best Answer

It is used in dog food as a cleaning agent for the teeth, as it helps keep tartar from forming around the gum line. It is controversial as it only helps if the teeth are clean already, and it is not the best thing for dogs to ingest (or Humans). Petcurean puts in in some of there dog food formulas Now Grain Free Small Breed, does it help, I've used it for a year and a bit, dog still has tartar problems, has had her teeth cleaned by vet twice. I've gone back to Champion Pet Foods as I feel their products have better ingredients and give better results, no tripolyphosphate, and no sodium selenite. Hope this helps.

What is the difference between sodium tripolyphosphate and potassium tripolyphosphate?

In chemical properties, there is very little difference. They are analagous to sodium chloride, table salt, and potassium chloride, sometimes used as a salt substitute. Sodium tripoly is by far the more common commercially, since it is less expensive to manufacture.
