WHAT THIS PRODUCT CURES
CET11X CET Oral Hygiene Kit for Dogs and Cats is a product use to provide oral hygiene care to cats and dogs.
Dental care is so important when it comes to our pets, but so many owners forget this step in pet care. Improper dental care can affect a pet’s eating habits, behavior, temperament, and adjacent organs. Pet owners should practice dental care daily to prevent tooth decaying elements to build up in the mouth. When a pet chews food, the teeth and saliva work together to break it down in order to be digested but the food that is not swallowed remain between the teeth. The remaining food within the mouth becomes cemented to the teeth due to the mineral elements in the saliva. If this cemented food remains in the mouth for duration of time, bacteria will begin eating away at the deposits.
The bacteria may remove the cemented food from the teeth but they also remove the outer layers of the tooth. A healthy tooth is made up of four basic structures; the enamel, the dentin, the cementum, and the pulp. These structures all act as structural support systems to the powerhouse of the tooth, the pulp. The pulp contains tissues, blood vessels, and nerves. If the bacteria decompose these protective structures this leaves the pulp open for foreign contaminants. When the tooth becomes infected, the bacteria can eventually seep into the blood stream, floating freely throughout the body. This infection leads to secondary complications to the heart and kidneys.
A healthy mouth results in a healthy pet. Pet owners require time and patients to assist their pets with proper dental hygiene. Improper dental health leads to blood infections, bad breath, infected teeth, bone and tooth loss, and change in eating habits.

QUESTIONS FOR MY VET:

To introduce brushing to an inexperienced pet.
2. If I run out of pet toothpaste can I substitute it with human toothpaste?
No, 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. 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.
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. Does my pet’s food affect his dental health?

Allow the pet to smell and taste the product. This product is flavored like food and most pets will open their mouths willingly.
8. 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.
9. 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.
