QUESTIONS FOR MY VET
1.What steps should I take if my pet has adverse effects from product?
No adverse reactions have been reported with use of this product. If you do note a reaction, stop use and contact your veterinarian immediately.
2. What is the difference between CET Enzymatic Toothpaste and human toothpaste?
Pet toothpaste and human tooth paste contains different ingredients. CET Enzymatic Toothpaste is specially made for pets as it is safe for ingestion. Human toothpaste is toxic and is hazardous to swallow.
3. This is my pet’s first time using a tooth brush, how can I safely retrain her?
It is normal for a pet to squirm when introducing something new. A safe and calming way to restrain a pet is to wrap a towel around them. A good wrapping technique used is called the burrito wrap; wrap your pet just like you would a burrito.
4. What is the best way to get my pet to open her mouth for me to brush?
Allow the pet to smell and taste the product. This product is flavored like food and most pets will open their mouths willingly.
5. a tooth fell out while I was brushing my cat’s teeth, did the product cause this?
No, just like people a pet will lose his teeth to be replaced with mature ones. Contact your veterinarian if the tooth appears rotten or several teeth fall out at once.
6. How often should I brush my pet’s teeth?
Once a day is the best scheduled time to brush a pet’s teeth but every other day will suffice.
7. If I practice dental care at home, can I stop paying for dental procedures from the vet?
Keep in mind pets should have a similar dental plan as people. People practice dental care at home but still proceed to go to the dentist for problems we do not notice. This same practice of having occasional dental checkups should transfer over to our pets.
8. Does my pet’s food affect his dental health?
Yes, soft canned food accumulates tarter build up more than dry food.
9. How do I know I am brushing my pet’s teeth correctly?
Pet dental care takes time and patience. Talk with your veterinarian to instruct you on proper technique. There are also resources online to instruct you as well.
10. When is the best time to introduce teeth brushing to a pet?
Pets are better mannered when new things are introduced at a young age. Pets should begin dental care around the same time their first vaccinations are given (about 6 weeks of age).
Keep out of reach from children.
