The Best Home Dental Care For Your Pet
Has your pet ever flopped in your lap and then dissatisfied with your attention put it's face right in your face to say 'hey, I need some attention right now'? Did you marvel at your pet's affection or think 'we have got get you a mint or something'?

That something is home dental care for your pet. Your pet needs regular home dental care and now there is a variety of ways to make that happen like tooth brushing, rinses, chews and even food. What is the BEST dental care for your pet? It is the one you and your pet WILL DO! Whatever type of pet oral health care fits into your daily routine.

If you are not aware of all the choices you have for daily home pet oral care, here they are rated Good to Best:

C.E.T.®Enzymatic Oral Chews for Dogs and Cats
·These feature a Dual-Enzyme System, are made from select beefhide to combine a natural antiseptic plus an abrasive texture that works with the pet's chewing action to loosen tartar and provide plaque control. These come in a 30-count bag designed for giving one each day.

C.E.T. AQUADENT® Drinking Water Additive
·         A daily drinking water additive with xylitol for dogs and cats to help fight plaque and freshen breath. Add 2 teaspoons to a quart of pet’s drinking water every day to provide clinically tested dental care every time a pet drinks.

C.E.T.® Oral Hygiene Rinse
·         Dental rinse for cats and dogs containing chlorhexidine gluconate, cetylpyridinium chloride, in an oral rinse formulation to help fight plaque, maintain oral health, and freshen breath fast. One squeeze into your pet's mouth quickly covers and rinses the entire mouth. You don't have to rub it around. Your pet's natural licking action does it automatically. Ideal when brushing is not an option.

Hill's T/D Prescription Diet Food
Prescription Diet® t/d® is formulated with the following benefits:
·         Unique kibble scrubs away laden plaque in the mouth to promote systemic health
·         Clinically proven to reduce plaque, stain and tartar buildup
·         Reduces bad breath and has antioxidants to control cell oxidation and promote a healthy immune system

Science Diet® Healthy Advantage™ Pet Food
Available exclusively from your veterinarian, Hill's® Science Diet® Healthy Advantage™ is formulated to help address five common health concerns for pets and one of those is dental health. Healthy Advantage food uses the same kibble technology as t/d but the preventative effect is less as it is a non-prescription diet.

Daily tooth brushing is the best at-home method for maintaining good dental health for cats and dogs. There are several types of toothbrushes and different flavors of toothpaste to make it easy and effective for cat and dog owners to care for their pet’s teeth as part of their daily routines. We will be happy to show you the different styles of toothbrushes and demonstrate them if you wish. Keep in mind, you do not have to choose just one method of dental care for your pet. It may be better for you and your pet to brush some days and have a chew some other days.
