Two clinical studies* on dogs performed by Jerzy Gawor, DVM, PhD, DipAVDC/EVDC and his team have shown that Canagan Dental dry food with ProDen PlaqueOff® significantly reduced 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. Canagan and Swedencare are proud to announce that Canagan Dental dry food with ProDen PlaqueOff® is now permitted to carry the VOHC® Accepted Seal.
“This is the fourth ProDen PlaqueOff® product, and the first dry food which includes the ingredient, to get approval to use the seal! With a solid dossier of clinical studies, it further underlines the effectiveness of our product. It is of course also very good to be able to show the market that our active ingredient can be included in other compositions and still have the same effect on oral health. I am convinced that this recognition will also have a major effect on the sales of the Canagan Dental product line that has already been very successful.” Says Håkan Lagerberg, CEO of Swedencare
“Canagan Dental has been incredibly well received in the UK and across the world. As with all of our award-winning recipes it is 100% grain-free, high in meat and contains a mixture of field fresh vegetables & botanicals. The inclusion of ProDen PlaqueOff® in our dental varieties and the subsequent clinical proof that feeding Canagan dental reduces tartar and plaque is a very proud moment for us and we are pleased to have been awarded the VOHC® Accepted Seal. This accolade further confirms to our customers around the world our commitment to pushing our standards ever higher.” Says James Millbourne, Managing Director of Canagan Group
* The studies were done on two groups of dogs, divided into two groups, one that received Canagan Dental which includes ProDen PlaqueOff® and one that received a placebo. Before entering the study, all dogs were found to be healthy on examination, and their teeth were cleaned to remove all tartar and plaque. The dogs were given the product for 30 days and after this, the presence of plaque and tartar was measured. In dogs receiving Canagan Dental with ProDen PlaqueOff®, there was significantly less plaque and tartar.
