Plaque and periodontal disease
PlaqueAway is the natural way to reduce the formation of oral plaque and calculus. It significantly improves your dog’s or cat's oral health. It reduces bad breath and results in healthier teeth and gums.
Bacterial plaque constantly forms in the mouth of animals, including cats, dogs and horses, as well as humans. Plaque is a soft, sticky biofilm that builds up on teeth and contains millions of bacteria. Its formation is a normal process that cannot be prevented. However, if they are allowed to build up, the bacteria in plaque cause tooth decay. This is because these bacteria produce acids from the sugars in the food that an animal eats. This acid causes the tooth enamel to break down, eventually resulting in cavities (holes) in the teeth. The bacteria in plaque also cause periodontal disease (an inflammatory disease affecting the gums and bone supporting the teeth).
Plaque, when combined with saliva and minerals, can eventually harden into calculus (tartar). Once plaque has calcified into calculus (tartar), it requires a visit to the veterinarian for removal. If the plaque and tartar is not removed but continues to increase, the gums can become red and swollen. This is called gingivitis, an early stage of gum disease. In more severe periodontal disease, the bacterial infection causes the gums and the bone supporting the teeth to break down. Destruction of the bone supporting the teeth can lead to tooth loss.
Periodontal disease is the most common condition in pets world-wide. It eventually affects the majority of animals, with up to 80% of dogs and cats having dental problems by middle age. It causes bad breath, oral pain, reduced appetite, and if left untreated, oral infections can spread to other parts of the body, affecting organs such as the kidneys, liver and heart, and significantly shortening the life of the animal.

If you have been searching for a super tasty, super tough and long lasting treat for all ages, then.... STOP right here!
Bully sticks are made from high-protein bull muscle that has been slowly dehydrated over a long period of time to retain nutrients and extend 'chew time'.
Best of all they are safe. Bully sticks are 100% digestible and pass through the digestive tract without issue, unlike rawhide treats that have known to break off and cause digestive issues.
It is a dogs natural instinct to chew, with the act itself releasing endorphins. Combining this with the added benefits of cleaning teeth, reducing plaque, building muscle and improving coat quality, you will have one happy pooch!
With an estimated 80% of dogs over the age of three suffering from some form of dental disease, it is important to combat this as early as possible. Using the correct treat choice can help make preventing dental disease easier on a daily basis.
