Broadreach Nature has launched Dental Deep, a new veterinary-formulated dental supplement for dogs and cats.
Dental Deep is available in packs of 60 capsules or 50g powder and has been designed to support healthy teeth, gums and fresh breath in pets from four months of age.
The product has been created by the company’s in-house Veterinary Expert Dr Barbara Fougere. It uses Oral-Active, a combination of plant and marine phytochemicals, to support healthy gums and dental health and is designed to assist in supporting gingival, periodontal ligament and healthy mouth immunity.
A recent study conducted by the Royal Veterinary College lists gum disease as one of the key reasons prompting a visit to the vets, with conditions such as gingivitis and periodontal disease also having a knock-on impact on overall pet health.
Further studies diagnosed periodontitis in 82% of dogs aged 6-8 years of age and 96% of dogs aged 12-14 years, with more than 85% of small-breed dogs reporting to have periodontal disease. In cats, one study diagnosed periodontal disease in 50% of cats over 4 years of age while 93% of cats over 8 years of age showed radiographic signs of periodontal bone or root loss.
