August is Pet Dental Month! With that in mind we are focusing in on some of the ways we can augment our pet’s dental health at home.

An all natural product in the fight against plaque and tartar is healthymouthTM . HealthymouthTM is a water additive with a pleasant taste that dogs and cats quickly adapt to and enjoy. Its patented formula contains 100% human grade ingredients, is free of all synthetic, artificial ingredients, alcohol and contains NO calories, fat, sugar or sodium. HealthymouthTM is the first and only dental water additive to receive the prestigious Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC) Seal of Approval for plaque control in dogs and the product has been recommended by leading veterinary specialist dentists around the world.

But does it work? YES! It’s clinically proven to reduce plaque by a remarkable 71% and 76% in dogs in two independent scientific clinical trials. Not a bad result! Now – helping to maintain your dog or cat’s oral health can be as simple as giving them a drink!

How does it work? HealthymouthTM contains natural and organic ingredients that act together to reduce the accumulation of bacteria in the mouth. This in turn reduced plaque and tartar development and halts the progression of dental disease. Existing plaque is softened on exposure to healthymouthTM , improving the effectiveness of brushing, dental diets and dental chew based products. HealthymouthTM also included antioxidants and natural anti-inflammatories to help boost your pet’s immune response to the bacteria – helping them to help themselves!

Another fantastic product for use in a comprehensive home care program is PlaqueOff®. PlaqueOff® contains a natural seaweed from the Norwegian and Canadian coast. This is a 100% all natural product and is free from artificial colours and preservative and contains no gluten or sugar – so it’s 100% good for your pet! This remarkable seaweed works systemically – meaning that once sprinkled over your pet’s food and eaten, it is absorbed into the blood via digestion. It works in the salivary gland, altering the composition of the saliva. PlaqueOff® makes the saliva slicker, making it harder for bacteria to stick to the surfaces of the mouth. It also makes existing plaque softer, meaning brushing, dental diets and dental chew-toys and treats will become more effective. Improvements can be seen in as little as 3 weeks!

There is an extensive body of evidence in human medicine to support the effectiveness of this remarkable seaweed and now thanks to PlaqueOff® our animals are enjoying the benefits.

HealthymouthTM  and PlaqueOff® are two great products available to keep your pets mouth sparkly and fresh. A healthy body starts with a healthy mouth and a great home care program goes a long way to ensuring your pets have that all important healthy mouth.
