Dentahex Oral Care Chews
Dentahex Oral Care Chews - Vetoquinol are coated with Chlorhexidine gluconate. Chlorhexidine, along with the natural abrading action of beef hide, helps to remove plaque and prevent the buildup of tartar-forming bacteria. Dentahex Chews are made with Digest-EEZE for easier and faster digestibility. The chews are from 100% natural US beef hides and made in food grade certified facilities without the use of formaldehyde in the process.
Chlorhexidine in the Oral Cavity
- Inhibits plaque accumulation on tooth surfaces
- Decreases the quantity of bacteria in saliva
- Alters the composition of microbial flora
- Binds to oral mucosal surfaces and is released slowly over time
After your pet finishes a meal, tiny food particles combine with bacteria to form plaque. Plaque, if not removed, eventually hardens into calculus or tartar, and can ultimately lead to periodontal disease. If left untreated, periodontal disease is the single greatest cause of health problems in pets. Regular veterinary check-ups and professional dental cleanings are an important first defense in controlling and preventing periodontal disease. Routine home dental care is equally important in helping keep your pet and its teeth healthy. Simply brushing food debris and plaque from the teeth and gumline can greatly reduce the chance of tartar build-up, periodontal disease, and bad breath.
Remember, your pet depends on you and your veterinarian for all its health care. Ask your veterinarian about the many different home oral care options available to you.
