Have you ever noticed a slimy or fuzzy feeling on your teeth and wondered what it’s caused by? That slimy plaque layer is actually a group of microorganisms, collectively called a biofilm. A biofilm is a community of bacteria that protect themselves by bonding together, making them very difficult to remove. Yuck, right?

Luckily, you brush your teeth (or at least we hope you do!), but what about your dog? While plaque in your pup’s mouth may not keep you awake at night, it can have damaging long-term effects on your dog’s overall health. Plaque biofilm can harden into tartar, which can lead to more serious conditions, such as periodontal disease. Early signs of periodontal disease are bad breath, bleeding gums, and tooth loss.

To keep your dog happy and healthy, early removal of biofilm buildup is vital—left untreated it can lead to expensive veterinary dental work and pain and suffering for your pet. If you and your dog struggle with daily tooth brushing, try a product such as the water additive from Oxyfresh. Your paw-tner can have fresh smelling breath and improve his oral hygiene, even if he hates brushing! Just add one capful of Oxyfresh Premium Pet Dental Care Solution, Pet Dental Water Additive to your pet’s water bowl each day and you’ll help eliminate pet breath while fighting tartar and plaque buildup. The non-toxic pet dental aid has no flavor additives and is dye and scent free, so your best bud will never know he’s using it
