Most dogs and cats have periodontal disease, and it’s important to pay attention to your pet’s oral hygiene. There are easy-to-use (and yummy) products on the market that can reduce plaque and tartar and prevent periodontal disease. No toothbrush required!
Have you ever been too close when your dog yawned and been hit by a wall of stinky breath? Most of the time, pet parents laugh these things off. But bad breath is actually a sign of canine periodontal disease, and the mistake many guardians make is to ignore their pet’s oral hygiene.
Proper oral care is important for your fur baby’s overall health and wellbeing. Fortunately, dental care for cats and dogs is easier than you might think, and you don’t have to engage in a daily toothbrush war!
With the right powders and chews, you can fight periodontal disease and make your dog’s or cat’s breath less offensive.
Periodontal Disease in Pets Is More than Just Bad Breath
The American Veterinary Dental College says most pets show signs of periodontal disease by age three, and bad breath is an early warning sign. Periodontal disease and poor dental health can cause some serious health issues for pets, including:
Infections (which can spread to other parts of the body)
Other internal health problems
How to Use Dental Powder for Cat and Dog Teeth Cleaning
Vets often recommend toothbrushing for at-home dental care for dogs and cats, but this can seem daunting and even dangerous for many pet guardians.
A dental powder supplement like ProDen PlaqueOff® is much easier for cat and dog dental cleaning. Just sprinkle it over your pet’s food once a day to reduce bacteria, plaque, and tartar in the mouth to promote better breath and gum health.
The powder is made from 100% natural sea kelp that’s sustainably harvested along the North Atlantic coast. It’s also free of additives, artificial preservatives, gluten, and added sugar.
Daily Dental Treats Are a Tasty Way to Promote Good Oral Hygiene!
Dental treats and bones are another easy, effective, and delicious way to manage dog and cat dental care.
You do have to be careful about quality and ingredients, however. Swedencare dental chews and bones are the only ones on the market today with the proven PlaqueOff® System that helps to control plaque and tartar by abrasive action, keeping teeth cleaner and breath fresher.
Dental Care Dog Bones come in six delicious flavors:
Veggie fusion with blueberry for toy and small breeds
