Brief Product Descriptions Provided by the Product Sponsors

Tartar Shield Soft Rawhide Chews


Made in Indiana from extruded American beef hide, the Chews are available in Small Dog (< 35 lbs), Large Dog (35-70 lbs) and Extra Large Dog (> 70 lbs) sizes. The fibrous nature of the extruded Chews helps remove dental plaque and oral debris while a clinically-proven additive (sodium tripolyphosphate) significantly reduces the reformation of dental calculus. Recommended feeding is one Chew per day for Small and Large Dogs and one Chew every other day for Extra Large Dogs. There are no known limitations on the use of the product. Additional information about the product, package sizes and copies or references of clinical trials are available at www.tartarshield.com.

Petsmile® Professional Pet Toothpaste, natural London Broil beef flavor, formulated with Calprox®


Petsmile® was invented by the makers of Supersmile®, a leading oral care, whitening brand for humans.  It is the gentle, safe and effective way to clean your pets’ teeth.  Unlike other toothpastes, Petsmile® can be applied by applicator swabs, which are sold only by Petsmile®.  These applicator swabs eliminate some of the pain and hassle of having to brush your pets’ teeth.  Petsmile® removes plaque and tartar for thorough oral care.  It works on contact to dissolve the protein pellicle on pets’ teeth where stains, plaque and bacteria form.   Petsmile’s exclusive Calprox® formula is clinically proven to inhibit plaque formation for healthier teeth and gums.  Ideal for all breeds and sizes of dogs, cats, and a variety of other pets.

Toothbrush


A tooth brush compliant with the American Dental Association standard ISO 20126:2005 was used in dogs in a trial conducted according to VOHC protocols. A child-sized brush with soft bristles and a flat profile head was used. The ADA standard ensures that the bristles have rounded tips to avoid damaging the gums. Brushes that meet this standard are marketed by several manufactuers. Details on the recommended brushing technique, as used in the VOHC trials, are available by clicking VOHC Brushing Protocol.
