Pet lovers enjoy receiving a lick or two from pets, but bad breath can be a deterring factor. Yet, many pet owners don’t think much of their pet’s bad breath, even when they describe it as less than pleasant. Unbeknownst to them, bad breath is one of the first signs of periodontal disease, which is common among cats and dogs due to poor dental hygiene. The bacteria from this disease can filter into the bloodstream and travel to their liver, kidneys and heart. Luckily, this disease can be prevented and there are recommendations for how to prevent it.
In fact, Dr. Patty Khuly said in a PetMD.com Q&A that the standard recommendation is for pet’s teeth to be professionally cleaned once a year. She said some pets can get away with less if they are given plenty of chew toys and their teeth are brushed regularly, at least a couple times a week, but small breeds are more predisposed to dental disease and may require more frequent cleanings.
Having products to keep up with pet dental care in between professional cleanings is imperative. Any instance of bad breath can be easily and immediately remedied by pet owners to maintain their pet’s oral care for better results and prevention.
“There is opportunity to build awareness of the importance of pet’s dental health,” said James Brandly, Associate Trade Marketing Manager at TropiClean.
Fresh Breath by TropiClean is one of the leading dental care brands in pet specialty, offering a complete portfolio for clean teeth and a healthy mouth with a variety of dental care products that cater to different pet needs.
“Although brushing pet’s teeth daily is the best method to keep pets’ teeth clean, it’s not the easiest and for some pet parents it is a hassle,” Brandly said. “TropiClean just launched our new Fresh Breath Dental Trial Kit, which offers a two-week trial of our Fresh Breath by TropiClean Oral Care Gel and Water Additive. These products together effectively clean pets’ teeth and freshens their breath, no brushing required.”
TropiClean strives to drive awareness of pet’s oral health with innovative oral care products that are safe, effective and help keep pets healthy. In addition, TropiClean is committed to educating retailers on the importance of pet oral care.
“We recommend retailers display dental products in multiple locations throughout their stores and strong educational signage to help pet parents understand the importance of dental care and to help them select the right product(s) for their needs,” Brandly explained. “TropiClean provides our retail partners with the needed educational training, resources and tools to help them guide pet parents to finding the perfect dental product that will improve and enrich the lives of their pets.”
