Four Steps for Dental Success

Step One: Begin by taking your pet to the veterinarian for a dental exam. Don't wait for his annual checkup if you suspect a problem.

Step Two: Begin a dental care regimen at home. Incorporate an oral rinse into your pets grooming schedule. Nolvadent is an example of one such product that protects your pets teeth against plague and gingivitis as well as loosens and breaks up food particles.

Step Three: In between rinsing your pets mouth, give him a specially formulated food that has been proven effective in combating plaque and tartar buildup. The Seal of Acceptance from the Veterinary Oral Health Council, an organization initiated by the American Veterinary Dental Society, appears on products that meet defined standards for plaque and tartar control in cats and dogs.

Step Four: Schedule regular veterinary checkups so your pets dental health can be monitored. Your veterinary health care team can help you schedule the appropriate visits.
