Healthy Habits


Know the source of common dental issues

At least 70% of pets develop dental issues by 2 years old1

  • AGE
    Dental issues are more common in older pets.
    Small dogs, especially those with a flat face or short nose, are more likely to have overcrowded or misaligned teeth that are difficult to keep clean and more prone to dental issues.
  • FOOD
    Some foods can increase your pet’s risk of dental issues, so ask your veterinarian for a nutritional recommendation.

Science Diet Oral Care: How It Works

Our kibble uses an exclusive fibre matrix that works like a toothbrush.


Step One in keeping pet teeth clean

With every bite, the fibre texture scrapes the tooth surface to help clean teeth and freshen breath.


Step Two in keeping pet teeth clean

Unique fibre alignment helps kibble stay intact to engulf the tooth.


Step Three in keeping pet teeth clean

Kibble gently scrubs away plaque and tartar to help clean teeth.
