Orapup and the American Kennel Club Canine Health Foundation, Inc., have formed a strategic partnership to advance canine health by raising awareness and funding scientific research. As part of the partnership, Orapup will contribute a portion of sales from its website to CHF and help increase traffic to the foundation’s website by creating several YouTube accounts.

Both Orapup and CHF are unified in their goal to help dogs live longer, healthier lives, and Orapup’s donation of time and funds will support CHF-sponsored research, which is committed to finding better treatments and more accurate diagnoses for canine health concerns, including cancer, heart disease, bloat, oral health, epilepsy, canine sports medicine, obesity, allergies and many others. A resource for all dog owners, CHF also provides free articles, podcasts and webinars to people who are concerned about the health of their dogs.

“We are thrilled to partner with the Canine Health Foundation, the most highly regarded organization funding scientific research exclusively for dogs,” Jeff Davis, CEO of Orabrush, said. “Orapup is one of the easiest and most rewarding ways to give dogs the attention and care they deserve, and we look forward to advancing the foundation’s innovative research to help dogs everywhere maintain happy and healthy lifestyles.”

Made in the USA, the vet-approved Orapup combines ultra-soft, micro-pointed bristles with four in-line scrapers to collect and remove bad breath-causing bacteria from the tongue. To entice dogs to lick away their bad breath and help build their natural oral health, Orapup Lickies, a supplement with FDA-approved, gluten-free ingredients, is applied to the surface of the Orapup.

“CHF understands that a dog’s oral health can affect all aspects of his or her overall health, and we strive to provide information and education to dog owners about this important health issue,” Terry Warren, CEO of the AKC Canine Health Foundation, said. “Orapup’s fundraising and social media efforts will help further our efforts to address the needs of all dogs across their entire lifetimes by focusing on all aspects of their physical, mental and social well-being.”
