At the end of last October, we revealed the new look for Oxyfresh Fresh Breath for Pets — formerly known as Oxyfresh Pet Oral Hygiene Solution.

Since then, Oxyfresh has changed its product name and label again, to avoid confusion with another similarly-named product on the market. The new product name is Oxyfresh Dental Care Water Additive.

Here’s a sneak preview of the new label:

Oxyfresh Pet Dental Water Additive

Evolution of Oxyfresh, with the current Dental Care Water Additive label

Dr. Donald Miele, a Norfolk veterinarian at Little Creek Veterinary Clinic, says, “The label is different, but the Oxyfresh inside is the same one that you’ve come to know and trust.”

Oxyfresh Dental Care Water Additive has no taste, odor or color to discourage your pet from drinking its water.
Oxyfresh goes to work in your pet’s mouth, cleaning food debris off teeth after a meal. It can eliminate foul breath odors, and it reduces plaque and tartar buildup to defend against periodontal disease.

Since it’s already the 15th, I should tell you that February is National Pet Dental Health Month.

No doubt you’ve been furiously brushing your teeth after ingesting all the candy your Sweetie gave you yesterday.

Choose a dentifrice made for pets.

After you’ve finished taking care of your own choppers, take a look inside your pet’s mouth.

  • Are any teeth loose, broken, or missing?
  • Are the gums swollen or inflamed?
  • Are there any growths on the gums, lips, roof or floor of the mouth?
  • Do you see pus or blood in the mouth?
  • Are the teeth yellow, brown, or crusted with tartar?
  • Is there a foul odor?
  • Is there fur wrapped around the teeth? (This happens mainly in pets that lick or chew at themselves often.)
  • Has your pet become reluctant to eat, drink cold water, or play with chew toys?
  • Is your pet drooling excessively?
  • Is there a lump beneath one or both eyes (this can signal a carnassial tooth root abscess.)

If you notice any of those signs in your pet, it’s time for a dental checkup.

Good pet dental health begins at home.  Look for pet-specific toothpaste (human toothpaste is not recommended), gels and liquids meant for cleaning your pet’s mouth after meals.
Regular use of a dentifrice can help delay plaque and tartar buildup and it can help freshen your pet’s breath.  (We like Oxyfresh Oral Hygiene for Pets.)
Also, regularly cleaning your pet’s teeth after meals will allow you to notice any changes in oral health right away.

What is the simplest thing you can do to help maintain your pet’s oral health?  The old answer used to involve feeding Milkbones to dogs, but what about our cats?  The new answer is this:  add one teaspoon of Oxyfresh Pet Oral Hygiene Solution per quart of pet’s drinking water.  Oxyfresh has no taste, odor or color to discourage your pet from drinking its water.

Oxyfresh goes to work in your pet’s mouth, cleaning food debris off teeth after a meal.  It can eliminate foul breath odors, and it reduces plaque and tartar buildup to defend against periodontal disease

     The benefits are most notable when starting with a clean mouth, as in puppies or kittens or after a professional teeth cleaning.  However, any time is a good time to take action in preventing or slowing oral disease in your pet. 

     Ask for Oxyfresh Pet Oral Hygiene Solution during your next visit to our clinic.
