Dog and Cat Dental Care Products Proven to Work
Pets are living longer then ever these days, which is great news. But the bad news is that due to advanced age, many pets are having more dental problems.
There are a lot of products on the market today that claim to help your pet's teeth stay healthy. But how do you know what works and what doesn't?
Well the Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC) is an organization that exists to recognize pet products that meet or exceed pre-set standards of plaque and calculus (tartar) retardation in dogs and cats.
Pets products are awarded the VOHC Seal of Acceptance after the data is reviewed from trials conducted according to VOHC protocols.
Only products that pass, may display the VOHC Seal on its packaging.
The VOHC says that regular use of products carrying the VOHC Seal will reduce the severity of periodontal disease in pets.
So far out of all the pet products on the market, only 17 dog products and 5 cat products have met those requirements so far.
