Dear Veterinary Healthcare Professional:
Did you know that oral health issues are the most common health problems reported in dogs? The fact is, as many as 80% of dogs develop some form of periodontal disease by the age of three.
For the oral health of your patients, a daily home dental care program—including tooth brushing—is an important step for owners to take in between annual visits to your office.
As part of that daily program, dental chews can provide a simple and effective way of helping clean a dog's teeth. In fact, results of third-party clinical testing show that PEDIGREE® DENTASTIX® reduces tartar buildup by up to 80% when used as part of a daily oral care program.¹
What's more, dogs love the taste of PEDIGREE® DENTASTIX®, so they'll welcome this treat into their daily routine.
The information on this site is being provided to give you a better understanding of how PEDIGREE® DENTASTIX® products can help improve the oral care of your patients. This includes a summary of the efficacy trial for the PEDIGREE® DENTASTIX® product, as well as an article on biometrics in the oral care of dogs. The understanding of oral biometrics in all sizes and shapes of dogs plays an important role in the design and efficacy of the PEDIGREE® DENTASTIX® product, and makes this brand different from most other products in the marketplace.
Together, we can help more dogs enjoy the benefits of good oral health. If have any questions or comments, please contact us.
