Product Questions

How does ProDen PlaqueOff® work?

Unlike other methods of plaque control ProDen PlaqueOff® works systemically i.e. through the blood stream. It is thought to affect the ability of plaque to ‘stick’ to surfaces in the mouth and softens hard tartar deposits. Improvements should start to be seen between 3 and 8 weeks.

What does ProDen PlaqueOff® Powder contain?

ProDen PlaqueOff® Powder is made exclusively from the North Atlantic alga Ascophyllum nodosum.

Who can use ProDen PlaqueOff® and how should it be used?

It can be used by all cats and dogs, and we recommend starting when the animal has got its permanent teeth. The dosage depends on the weight of the animal.

How long can I give my pet ProDen PlaqueOff®?

The product should be given regularly in accordance with the dosage instructions. Results can usually be seen within 2-3 weeks. The positive effect can be seen as long as the product is taken, but disappears when you stop using it. The product is safe and can be used continuously.

Can I stop brushing my dog´s teeth?

ProDen PlaqueOff® Powder is not a substitute for tooth brushing. It is a complement to brushing and the combination will help remove plaque and tartar and keep your pet’s mouth clean.

Are there any side effects?

There are no known side effects, however, due to the rich iodine content of seaweed, this product may not be suitable for animals undergoing thyroid treatment. If unsure, consult your vet for advice before starting using ProDen PlaqueOff®.

How should ProDen PlaqueOff® Powder be used?

It should be used once daily and can be added to wet or dry food.

Can pregnant and lactating cats and dogs use ProDen PlaqueOff®?

No studies have been carried out with specific focus on the effects of ProDen PlaqueOff® on pregnant or lactating animals. Therefore, we do not recommend giving the product to pets that are pregnant or lactating.

Is ProDen PlaqueOff® safe to use if your dog or cat has thyroid problems?

Animals having problems with the thyroid gland must be careful with their intake of iodine. Since algae, including Ascophyllum nodosum, have a naturally high iodine content, we do not recommend that animals with thyroid problems use this product without a prior consultation with a veterinarian.

What do I do if my pet still has bad breath?

Persistent bad breath may be an indication of a more serious underlying condition and you should consult your veterinary professional.
