The hassle out of doggy dental care. There's a scoop for that! **Brand New Product** Each time our dogs eat, tiny food particles are broken down from their food and deposited in their mouths. Over time, these particles build up to form a substance known as 'plaque', which covers their teeth, eats away at the enamel, and causes gum inflammation and soreness. The best way to remove plaque from teeth is by brushing. And research has shown that, unless brushing is carried out each day, brushing will have little to no impact on the onset of oral decay. However, as most dog owners will appreciate, it's hard to find time to brush every day. This is where Plaque-K9 comes in. Our vets and nutritionists have come up with a handy way to take the hassle out of canine dental care by creating an easy-to-feed dental supplement that maintains dental hygiene and prevents the build-up of plaque and tartar—helping with problems of bad breath and dirty teeth.
