Simple steps for fresh breath and a healthy mouth
Know the source of common dental issues
At least 70% of pets develop dental issues by 2 years old1
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.
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.
With every bite, the fibre texture scrapes the tooth surface to help clean teeth and freshen breath.
Unique fibre alignment helps kibble stay intact to engulf the tooth.
Kibble gently scrubs away plaque and tartar to help clean teeth.
One of the most important steps you can take to keep your pet’s mouth healthy is to schedule annual dental checkups.
If your pet forms tartar quickly or has a history of dental problems, more frequent exams and cleanings may be advised.
