There’s a new chew available to help keep your dog’s teeth and gums healthy.
Merial has launched a new dental hygiene chew called OraVet. It is a semi-hard chew (similar to a Greenie) that is impregnated with a substance called delmopinal.
As the dog chews up the edible treat, delmopinal is released into the mouth coating the surfaces of the teeth, gums, and tongue. Delmopinal helps prevent bacteria from adhering to the surface of the tooth, thus helping to reduce the formation of soft plaque and ultimately hard tartar. Existing plaque and tartar are also scrubbed off of the teeth as the dog chews.
These treats come packaged in boxes of individually wrapped chews and are designed to be given once daily. Oravet comes in four different sizes and is perfect for dogs 6 months of age and older.
