OraVet® DENTAL HYGIENE CHEWS COMBAT PLAQUE, CALCULUS, AND HALITOSIS AT THE SOURCE

Halitosis is one of the few signs of poor oral hygiene that a dog owner is likely to recognise.1

DELMOPINOL HYDROCHLORIDE PROVIDES A NOVEL MECHANISM OF ACTION

OraVet Dental Hygiene Chews release delmopinol throughout the mouth, as the dog chews, to form a protective barrier that:

  1. Helps prevent bacterial attachment 2,3
  2. Reduces the surface tension between the salivary pellicle and tooth enamel 2
  3. Reduces the development of plaque biofilms and the production of the volatile sulphur compounds of halitosis 4,5

EXCELLENT MECHANICAL ACTION REMOVES EXISTING PLAQUE

The scrubbing action of the chew works in parallel with delmopinol to effectively reduce plaque and calculus build up.

See results of clinical studies demonstrating efficacy against plaque, calculus and halitosis.
