Keeping Plaque Away

Gum disease is a problem that begins when plaque builds up on your dog’s teeth. OraVet fights plaque before it starts, safely and effectively. Oravet Barrier Sealant creates an invisible barrier that prevents plaque- and tartar-forming bacteria from attaching to the teeth. It only takes 30 seconds a week to apply the OraVet Plaque Prevention Gel along your dog’s gumline!

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is it important to have my pet’s teeth cleaned regularly?

Like people, pets need regular dental cleanings to remove plaque and tartar buildup. If not removed, this buildup can lead to periodontal disease and more serious health problems.

I feed my pet a dental diet or dental chews. Isn’t that enough to keep its teeth clean? 

Dental diets and dental chews can scrape off plaque above the gum line to varying degrees, but do little to remove plaque under the gum line. OraVet prevents bacteria from adhering to your pet’s teeth, so it significantly reduces plaque and tartar above and below the gum line.

If I brush my pet’s teeth regularly, should I still use OraVet Plaque Prevention Gel?

Yes. The gel is effective with or without regular brushing and it’s easy to integrate into your regular pet dental care routine. Simply apply the gel once as week as directed.

Where can I buy OraVet Plaque Prevention Gel?

The OraVet system is available exclusively through your veterinarian.
