February is National Pet Dental Health Month

Did you know that your pet's bad breath can be from poor dental health?

And that's not all.  Poor oral health can also cause

  • Broken or loose teeth
  • Teeth that are discolored or covered in tartar
  • Periodontal disease
  • Abnormal chewing, drooling, or dropping food from the mouth
  • Reduced appetite or refusal to eat
  • Abscesses or infected teeth
  • Pain in or around the mouth
  • Bleeding from the mouth
  • Swelling in the areas surrounding the mouth
  • Health problems with kidney, liver and heart

Dental care is unfortunately one of the most overlooked health issues pet owners are concerned with.
Plaque bacteria constantly form in the mouth of all cats and dogs. Once plaque has calcified into tartar it can no longer be brushed off with a toothbrush. In many cases it has to be removed by a vet, using ultrasound.

ProDen PlaqueOff® Powder is a dietary supplement, suitable for both cats and dogs, which can help with good oral hygiene. A completely natural product derived from a specially selected algae harvested in the North Atlantic from specific areas.

ProDen PlaqueOff® Powder comes in a granulated form which is easily added to food every day. It is rich in natural iodine and contains important vitamins and minerals, and is free from artificial colours, preservatives, gluten and sugar. Specially formulated to appeal to our feline friends, ProDen PlaqueOff® Powder Cat contains all the benefits of ProDen PlaqueOff® Powder, but with added brewer’s yeast.
