February is NATIONAL PET DENTAL HEALTH MONTH!
Dog dental health isn't just about clean teeth or the unpleasant smell that goes along with bad breath. Pet oral health is an important part of your dog's overall health, so you don't want to overlook it! Your pet's mouth is an ideal place for all kinds of bacteria to grow, including plaque which hardens and becomes tartar. This can throw off the balance of normal, healthy microbial flora and lead to serious oral health problems.
PET DENTAL DISEASE CAN LEAD TO SERIOUS HEALTH PROBLEMS
According to PetMD, one of the largest online resources for pet health information, 78% of dogs over the age of 3 have some form of dental disease. It's the most common health problem effecting dogs. Pet Dental disease can consist of:
* An accumulation of Plaque on the surface of the teeth, which then hardens and becomes Tartar
* Gum inflammation and infection, called Gingivitis
* Tooth root abscesses
* Broken or lost teeth
* Periodontal Disease, one of the most common conditions in dogs and cats, causes damage to the gum, bone, and tissue around the teeth. Toxins from periodontal disease are absorbed into the dog's blood stream and can cause infections. This can lead to more serious health problems, potentially damaging kidney, heart, and brain tissue.

Oratene's line of Brushless Pet Oral Health Products make it easy to kill harmful bacteria and germs, and remove plaque biofilm in your dog's mouth. Their products break down plaque and biofilm, and specifically target the harmful odor causing bacteria and microorganisms in the mouth. It freshens your dog's breath while maintaining a healthy oral ecology.
Oratene products are especially beneficial for senior pets, pets with special health conditions like Diabetes, and pets who are taking medications for behavior, pain, allergies, heart problems, thyroid dysfunction, or urinary incontinence.
Many pets taking medication can experience a change in the quality of saliva. Although pets may still have saliva and drool, this condition is called "Dry Mouth". Pets with chronic Dry Mouth develop severe halitosis (very bad breath), and accumulate plaque which can lead to tartar and tooth decay.
Oratene's line of Pet Dental Care products restores oral balance, reduces harmful bacteria & yeast, and dissolves plaque biofilm.
One of the products in their line of pet dental care products is the Oratene Water Additive. It's a flavorless concentrate you add to your pet's water each day that provides a safe, healthy way to conveniently keep teeth clean without brushing!

Oratene Water Additive was great news for me. I've had a hard time trying to brush Icy and Phoebe's teeth. I tried really hard to brush their teeth. I read how-to articles, I watched videos, but it was such a struggle trying to brush their teeth. It was becoming so unpleasant for them, and for me, that I just gave up.
