Tartar Shield DentaTabs are an easy way to help your pet maintain better oral health. Simply dissolve DentaTabs in your pet’s drinking water for a calorie free addition to your pet’s dental care routine. The powder contains two clinically proven additives that have been shown to help prevent the formation of dental plaque and calculus. DentaTabs are tasteless, odorless and ideal for pets that need to limit their calorie intake or for pets with allergy concerns.
The Secret Ingredients
DentaTabs contain Malic Acid, a carboxylic acid that is naturally present in many common fruits and Cetyl Pyridinium Chloride (CPC), an anti-microbial agent commonly used in mouthwash. Working together, these patented ingredients have been shown to reduce the formation of dental plaque and calculus as well as to improve pet breath, helping to keep your pet’s mouth clean and healthy.
This patented, clinically tested combination of Malic Acid and CPC has been shown to help prevent tartar and improve pet breath. Independent research conducted at Indiana University School of Dentistry showed that Malic Acid and CPC, as present in DentaTabs, helped prevent tartar by as much as 50%.
An additional test conducted by the Department of Oral Microbiology at the Indiana University School of Dentistry was performed to determine the effect of DentaTabs on representative oral microbes from dogs and cats. The results indicated that DentaTabs significantly inhibited the growth of all microbes tested. The oral bacteria included Streptococcus mutans, Actinomyces Viscosus, Porphyromonas gingivalis and Porphyromonas asaccharolyticus which are commonly found in dogs and cats and are known to contribute to dental plaque and bad breath.
