Oral health issues of the gums & teeth are common in both dogs & cats - by age 3, over 75% have some form of tartar buildup on teeth, especially if they are not receiving regular teeth cleanings at home. As with people, regular oral care can prevent oral disease from manifesting into serious, life threatening health problems.
Tartar buildup on teeth should only be removed by a licensed veterinarian. Once tartar is removed, at home care can prevent future troubles. Petsmile meets the Veterinary Oral Health Council effectiveness standards for inhibiting plaque growth. It's quick, easy & doesn't even require a toothbrush - just swipe a finger with Petsmile on across you pet's teeth 2 to 3 times weekly. Cats & dogs LOVE the natural London Beef Broil taste so they think they're getting a special treat!

The most reliable, timeless principle is "Calories In" (CI) vs. "Calories Out" (CO). Calorie management offers real life flexibility when overall balance is followed. Generally, more physical activity allows for more calories without weight gain (and vice versa).
- If overall CI > CO, weight gain occurs
- If CI < CO, weight loss occurs
- If CI = CO, weight will be maintained
The above principle applies to pets AND people. And as the body ages, gets ill or develops disease, the formula may need to be slightly adjusted. For example, a body typically needs fewer CI as it becomes older.
