Two clinical studies* on cats performed by Jerzy Gawor, DVM, PhD, DipAVDC/EVDC and his team have shown that ProDen PlaqueOff® Cat significantly reduce the formation of plaque and tartar. 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® Cat is now permitted to carry the VOHC® Accepted Seal.
“I am thrilled to announce that the important VOHC seal has been awarded to the third ProDen PlaqueOff® product. This will allow this product, as well as the other two already awarded, ProDen PlaqueOff® Dental Bites and ProDen PlaqueOff® Dog, to be carried by veterinary practices owned by commercial companies that have a policy of offering only VOHC-accepted oral hygiene products.” says Håkan Lagerberg, CEO of Swedencare
* The studies were done on two groups of cats, divided into two groups, one that received ProDen PlaqueOff® Cat and one that received a placebo. Before entering the study, all cats were found to be healthy on examination, and their teeth were cleaned to remove all tartar and plaque. The cats were given the product for 30 days and after this, the presence of plaque and tartar was measured. In cats receiving ProDen PlaqueOff® Cat, there was significantly less plaque and tartar. In addition to plaque and tartar, gingival health was measured as gingival bleeding and there was a clear decrease noticed in the group which received ProDen PlaqueOff® Cat.
