Press release: SwedencareUSA

SwedencareUSA announced the results of two clinical studies on dogs that show that Swedencare’s product ProDen PlaqueOff Powder significantly reduced the formation of plaque and tartar. The studies were performed by Jerzy Gawor, DVM, PhD, who is president of Federation of European Companion Animal Veterinary Associations and president elect of the European Veterinary Dental College. Data from these studies were submitted for review by the Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC), which awarded the Seal in the VOHC “Helps control plaque and tartar” categories. Swedencare is proud to announce that ProDen PlaqueOff Powder is now permitted to carry the VOHC Accepted Seal.

Swedencare looks forward to using this new scientific information to further educate pet owners about the benefits of ProDen PlaqueOff.

“I am thrilled to announce that the important VOHC seal has been awarded to another ProDen PlaqueOff product,” stated Martin Shimko, president of Swedencare USA. “This will allow this product, as well as the ProDen PlaqueOff Dental Bites dog treat product, to be carried by veterinary practices owned by commercial companies that have a policy of offering only VOHC-accepted oral hygiene products. VOHC acceptance has become an important indicator in the efficacy of pet dental health products. We are pleased to have a formal study showing these excellent results.”

The studies were done on two groups of small and medium size dogs, divided into two groups, one that received ProDen PlaqueOff Powder and one that received a placebo. Before entering the study, all dogs were found to be healthy on examination, and their teeth were cleaned to remove all tartar and plaque. The dogs were given the product for 30 days and after this, the presence of plaque and tartar was measured. In dogs receiving ProDen PlaqueOff Powder, there was significantly less plaque and tartar. The mean reduction in plaque index was 32 percent and the mean reduction in tartar was 35 percent compared to the placebo group.

Founded in 2005, SwedencareUSA is the U.S. and Canadian distributor of ProDen PlaqueOff, an oral healthcare product developed in Sweden. Following trials, PlaqueOff has become the premier dental product for participants’ pets. The company’s business expansion has led to the inclusion of PlaqueOff System Dental Care Bones, which incorporate PlaqueOff’s incomparable plaque- and tartar-fighting ability into tasty treats. SwedencareUSA prides itself on the quality of its products and its friendly and fast service to customers.
