PET DENT® Oral Gel is a highly palatable flavoured gel, containing a powerful antibacterial agent used for the treatment of oral (gum) diseases. It is especially useful for pets with bad breath. Dogs and cats - just like people - need tooth care because no pet diet is able keep their teeth clean enough to prevent plaque accumulation. If dental hygiene is not practised, pets develop plaque and then gum disease. PET DENT® Oral Gel should be used when tooth-brushing is difficult or impossible. Veterinarians use PET DENT® Oral Gel as part of their dental cleaning routine, and apply it after scaling the teeth to ensure that the mouth is bacteria-free and to keep development of plaque down to a minimum.
