Toothbrush and C.E.T Toothpaste: Any soft bristle toothbrush will work, but only use specially formulated pet toothpaste. It is flavored and safe for pets to swallow, and the enzymes help stop plaque from forming. Ideally you should brush daily, but every other day use can still help prevent tartar formation.
Nolvadent: An oral cleaning solution that contains an antiseptic to kill bacteria and plaque to help maintain your pet’s oral health and fresh breath. Nolvadent Rinse works well as a rinse or spray for pets that don’t cooperate with tooth brushing. However, if your pet does cooperate, use Nolvadent on a toothbrush or gauze to help remove food particles from teeth and gums.
Vetradent: Vetradent is a drinking water additive that binds with minerals in saliva to fight tartar. Vetradent has the VOHC seal and has been proven to slow the development of tartar on the teeth without the use of xylitol.
Royal Canin Dental Diet: This prescription diet reduces the formation of plaque and tartar in 3 different ways. The kibble has a texture and shape that provides a brushing effect on the teeth. The food contains an additive that prevents tartar formation and a nutrient to reduce plaque build-up. For maximum benefit, Royal Canin Dental should be fed as greater than 25% of the diet on a daily basis following a dental cleaning. Royal Canin Dental provides complete and balanced nutrition for dogs and cats and provides 325 calories/cup for dogs, 335 calories/cup for small dogs, and 289 calories/cup for cats.

Tartar Shield Soft Rawhide Chews: These bacon-flavor minced rawhide chews provide natural abrasive chewing action but are gentle on gums. This formula is clinically proven to clean teeth, reduce bacteria, freshen breath, and prevent plaque and tartar build-up by more than 50%.
Oravet Chews: These chews remove plaque and tartar through chewing action. The ingredient delmopinol binds to the enamel to form a barrier on the teeth to protect against further plaque formation. Oravet is also vanilla flavored and kills odor-causing bacteria.

Pill Pockets: We offer various flavors of pill pockets for both dogs and cats. Pill pockets are soft treats with a built-in pouch that easily hides pills. For pets that are new to taking pill pockets (especially cats!), start by breaking an empty pocket into pieces and offering an empty piece or two followed by the pill pocket containing the medication. By this time, most animals are enjoying their treat too much to notice the pill! Also, be sure to avoid touching the pill and then touching the outside of the pocket. Pills can smell quite bitter and deter picky eaters!
