Great pet dental health starts at home

For Dogs:

Mr. Squeakems isn’t joking around, bad breath really is “nothing to play around with.” There are steps you can take at home to help your pet fight off bad breath and poor dental health.

We at Sauk Point Veterinary Clinic are proud to carry Virbac VOHC approved C.E.T.® dental products that are shown to:
1. Help cleanse teeth, reducing tartar and plaque
2. Freshen your pet’s breath
3. Promote proper digestion with a balancing probiotic

Virbac’s C.E.T.® VEGGIEDENT® FR3SH® Tartar Control Chews for dogs are specially shaped to reach every tooth in your dogs mouth, and they’re vegetable based, which makes them easily digestible! Click here to learn more

Curious about your dog’s dental health? Take this quiz through Virbac to see where your dog’s mouth stands!

While daily dental chews make a great addition to home dental care for your dog, daily tooth brushing remains our gold standard for preventing tartar build-up and promoting dental health. Watch the following video to see how Dr. Heidi Lobprise, DVM/DAVDC brushes her dog’s teeth at home

For Cats:

Virbac doesn’t leave out our feline friends when it comes to home dental care either. With 85% of cats dealing with some form of dental disease, it’s important to consider the steps we can take to protect their teeth at home.

With the introduction of C.E.T.® IntelliDent™ Cat Bites in 2020, Virbac has made home dental care for cats easier than ever! With only 3 bites per day, you can help support your cat’s dental health by:
1. Cleaning teeth of tartar and plaque
2. Supporting healthy gums
3. Freshening your cat’s breath

C.E.T.® IntelliDent™ Cat Bites are a flavorful, crunchy snack your kitty will love, and you’ll love that their formula contains natural flavors, a low fat content, and NO artificial preservatives. Click here to learn more

As tasty as dental chews can be, many cats are prone to “wolfing” them down without chewing at all, which unfortunately defeats the purpose of a dental “chew.” See how Dr. Heidi Lobprise, DVM/DAVDC practices the gold standard of home dental care by brushing her cat’s teeth in the following video

For Both:

If your cat or dog is resistant to having their teeth brushed and they have a tendency to “inhale” their food rather than actually chew it, Virbac has at-home dental care available for you, too.

Virbac’s C.E.T.® AQUADENT® FR3SH® Dental Solution water additive offers a 3-way approach to promoting dental health and supporting fresh breath:

1. Erythritol, a natural sweetener, freshens your pet’s breath right away
2. A natural prebiotic, inulin, has been added to prevent bad breath from developing
3. Pomegranate extract is a natural antioxidant, promoting good dental health

Even if your pet allows daily tooth brushing and is good about chewing their food, the C.E.T.® AQUADENT® FR3SH® Dental Solution water additive can simply be one more step in your multi-modal approach to home dental care. Click here to learn more
