Tartar and its consequences
Infections of the gums – painful and dangerous
Tartar can cause gum infections which are extremely painful and may lead to your pet being unable to eat.
Gum infections can attack the bone of the jaw and cause teeth to fall out – in some cases, all of them. That is why it is so important that gum infections are properly treated. Furthermore, the bacteria which cause tartar could migrate from the oral cavity into the blood vessels and thus damage internal organs such as the heart.

If only dogs didn’t smell so bad...
Picture the scene. You’re lying comfortably on the couch, and your dog comes up, panting affectionately. How nice it would be not to have to turn him away because of his terrible smell. How nice it would be not to have to push him away just because you can’t stand his breath.
Bad breath – not just unpleasant
OralClean+Care tackles the root of bad breath, which is caused by the bacteria locked inside plaque and tartar. Bad breath is not just an unpleasant side effect, but can be an indicator of the onset of illness or of an existing medical problem. If OralClean+Care – applied properly – doesn’t get rid of bad breath within a couple of days, please talk to your vet.
Not only looking bad and smelling worse, tartar is above all a health risk!
