PlaqueOff

What is PlaqueOff? ProDen PlaqueOff is an innovation in pet dental care! Suitable for dogs and cats, PlaqueOff is made from natural plant marine algae D1070 and comes in a granulated powder form. Rich in natural iodine, free of artificial coloring, preservatives, gluten, salt and sugar, PlaqueOff has been clinically proven to reduce and help prevent plaque and tartar.

D1070 (Ascophyllum nodosum) is seaweed harvested from the clean and cold seas of Norway and Iceland. It has a high content of fucose-containing sulphated polysaccharides. These compounds interfere with bacterial growth, colonization, and calculus deposition. When D1070 is absorbed into the bloodstream, it prevents plaque from sticking to your pet’s teeth. Existing tartar becomes porous and is then easily removable by brushing, cleaning, or bone chewing. D1070 also helps to whiten teeth and freshen breath.

Iodine can be very beneficial to your pet’s overall health. It helps with proper thyroid function, balancing hypertension, cardiovascular health, bone pain and healing, lowering cholesterol and blood pressure, kidney and bladder infections, constipation, cancer, skin diseases, and respiratory disorders.

Why use PlaqueOff? It is estimated 85% of dogs and 70% of cats over the age of 3 years show signs of gum disease, the major cause of tooth loss. Gum disease is caused by the accumulation of plaque bacteria and is converted to calculus by the minerals naturally occurring in saliva. Untreated plaque and tartar build-up can also lead to infections that can spread throughout the body and damage the heart, lungs, liver or kidneys. Since daily brushing of your cat or dog’s teeth can be difficult to achieve, PlaqueOff – used in conjunction with regular bone chewing – provides an easy solution to improving your pet’s oral hygiene. In addition, the iodine levels found in PlaqueOff are crucial in boosting the immune system and can help fight off any gum disease related problems.

When should PlaqueOff be used?  PlaqueOff should be added to dry or wet food on a daily basis to combat existing tartar and plaque build up and to maintain your pet’s oral health. Each bottle contains a serving spoon to measure out the proper amount. Cats and small dogs (up to 25 lbs): ½-1 scoop. Medium sized dogs (25-50 lbs): 1-2 scoops. Large and giant dogs (50+ lbs): 2-3 scoops.
