C.E.T. VeggieDent Dental Chews are like a toothbrush in a treat

In recent years, we’ve all become more aware of how dental hygiene impacts the health of pets (and humans) in general. Poor dental health causes plaque, tartar buildup, cavities, bad breath, tooth loss, oral lesions and the list goes on.

Teeth cleaning for pets can be a real challenge. Sometimes teeth brushing can fall to the bottom on a busy pet parent’s to-do list. The fact that many pets may be uncooperative during the teeth cleaning process can make brushing your pet’s teeth a dreaded task.

How to get your pet to participate in the teeth cleaning process

So, how do you reduce the time and effort it takes to keep your pet’s teeth sparkling and gums healthy?

Innovations in pet dental care have greatly eased the pet teeth cleaning process. While brushing is always necessary and vital to overall oral hygiene, there are ways your pet can help clean his or her own teeth and gums without even knowing it!

C.E.T. VeggieDent Dental Chews – A toothbrush in a treat!

VeggieDent dental chews

Offering your pet a daily dental chew, such as C.E.T. VeggieDent Dental Chews for Dogs is a great way to reduce plaque, loosen tartar and freshen breath all at once.

When your dog enjoys a VeggieDent Dental Chew, the mechanical action of the chewing along with the tough, chewy texture of the dental chew work to scrape away plaque and tartar, as well the bacteria that causes bad breath.

The less plaque, tartar and food particles left in your pet’s mouth, the easier brushing teeth becomes!

C.E.T. VeggieDent Dental Chews have a special Z-shape design to help your dog get a good grip for chewing, too.

There’s no replacement for regular teeth brushing, but using dental chews like VeggieDent is a great way to keep dental problems at bay while giving your dog a tasty treat.

HomeoPet Feline UTI+

You were away from home longer than usual. When you walk in your door, you’re hit with an overpowering odor… and you know just what it is. But why? You may jump to the conclusion that your cat sprayed or urinated outside the box as a passive-aggressive way to say, “Your absence is unacceptable! You’d better come home on time from now on.”

In reality, there may be something altogether different going on with your furry companion.

The heartbreak of chronic kidney disease in pets

Few things in life are as painful as watching your beloved pet lose the battle with chronic kidney disease. Damage to tubules and tissues in the kidneys impact the natural filtering ability of these vital organs.

Kidney failure causes a dangerous buildup of toxins in the blood. If neglected, your pet could die as a result. Kidney disease is all too common in middle-aged and senior pets, and symptoms can often be mistaken for just the condition of being “old.” Left untreated, chronic renal disease can shorten the time you get to spend together by months or even years. However, there are steps you can take to support your pet’s kidney health.
