Every dog or cat I've ever owned had dental problems sooner or later, bad enough that some teeth eventually had to be removed. And although I brush their teeth often, I still have to take my pets in for regular cleanings by the vet.
Bones and dental 'treats' work pretty well to remove some plaque, but they can't do it all, and when pets reach middle age their teeth and gums are sensitive and they don't tend to be attracted to bones.
Besides tooth brushing and dental bones, there's another great way to help your pets' dental health. It's a dental powder you just add to your pets' food, and customers are very pleased with its results, reporting that pets don't even seem to mind the taste! (That should perk up some ears!)
The main ingredient in VetriScience Laboratories- Perio Support, Dental Health Powder for Cats and Dogs is a mineral called zeolite. VetriScience uses natural zeolite, a porous rock formed by the amalgamation of volcanic rocks and ash layers react with alkaline groundwater. Zeolites help to remove plaque from teeth and prevent it from returning.
Other ingredients include:
- cranberry: an antibacterial that helps keeps gums heathy
- zinc and taurine: helps keep plaque off teeth, thereby reducing bad breath
- Lactobacillus Acidophilus and Enterococcus Faecium: good bacteria that help fight the bad bacteria in your pets' mouth
- vegetable fats: (vegetable and soybean) help the other ingredients adhere to the teeth so that they can do their jobs; also helps the powder taste good
(It is a surprise to learn, after looking at the powder in the bottle, that this stuff tastes good!)
VetriScience Perio Support is given once a day with food, according to the following directions:
