Starting early with preventative measures will help impede the progression of dental disease. Daily brushing to remove plaque and tartar is ideal. Make sure to use toothpaste specifically made for pets. C.E.T AquaDent can be added to your pet’s drinking water to help prevent plaque buildup. For pets that hate having their teeth brushed C.E.T Oral Hygiene Rinse can be squirted directly onto teeth with no brushing required. Cats can be given raw or steamed chicken gizzards, which contain a tough layer of koilin. This natural toothbrush will help scrape plaque and tartar off of your cat’s teeth as he or she chews the gizzards. For dogs, raw meaty bones like beef marrow bones that are sold at the grocery store can help scrape tartar off teeth while entertaining your dog. Discard bones after a day or so of chewing, before the bone dries out and becomes brittle. Make sure you always watch your dog while he chews and never give any pet cooked bones, as these can splinter and cause injury.
For dogs over 25 lbs (11 kg): Add two teaspoonfuls (10mL) of CET AquaDent to one quart (950mL) of fresh drinking water daily.

According to the ASPCA, “…pet dental products that contain an ingredient known as xylitol should be used carefully and only according to label directions.” If you use a water-additive for your dog’s dental health and are concerned about the small amount of xylitol in CET Aquadent, consider a xylitol-free product such as which does not include xylitol.CET Aquadent Drinking Water Additive for dogs and cats is available in both a 16.9 oz bottle and also in convenient single servings that contain 2 teaspoons (10 ml) of Aquadent each.
