How to Use : Just squeeze the recommended amount onto your fingertip. If your pet will allow you to open his mouth, simply smear the gel over his teeth and gums. If not, place the gel on his lips, paw, or muzzle, and he'll lick it off. The more he licks, the more it will mix with his saliva and coat his teeth and gums.
When smearing the gel on your pet's teeth, focus on the back molars first. Especially with cats, this is where most of the dirt accumulates. Move to the pre-molars, canines, and then the incisors.
SUGGESTED USE FOR PETS (follow instructions as detailed on label)
1. How Much Dental Gel Should I give my Pet? -To help clean very dirty teeth, apply 1 or 2 times daily after meals for the first 4 weeks. After that, apply 2 to 3 times per week (can be used daily), preferably before bedtime. For fastest results, apply gel directly to teeth and gum line. Withhold food and water for at least 30 minutes after applying so the gel can mix with saliva and coat teeth and gums. Use the following amounts:
Cats and small breed dogs (under 12 lbs.) - 1/8 tsp
Medium Dogs (13-35 lbs) -1/4 tsp
Large Dogs (36-60 lbs) - 1/3 tsp
Large and Giant Breed Dogs (over 60 lbs) - 1/2 tsp
These are general guidelines. You may want to adjust frequency of application to suit your pet's unique needs and factors such as age, breed, and cleanliness of teeth.
2. My Pet won't allow me to apply the gel to the inside of her mouth. Does it need to be applied directly to the teeth and gums to be effective?" Thegood news is – no! You can simply wipe the gel on the outside of your pet's lips, her upper muzzle near her whiskers, or even a cat's paw or front forearm and she will naturally want to lick it off. The more she licks, the better the gel will coat all of her teeth and gums.
For dogs, try offering a bit of peanut butter with the tooth gel squeezed on top.
Follow the directions above to get your pet comfortable with you touching her mouth. Now try applying the gel to your fingertip and work it through her mouth, coating the teeth and gums. Next, move to using a piece of gauze wrapped around your finger, and finally a pet finger brush to provide more mechanical abrasion.
3. Do I need to use a toothbrush with Healthy Pets Dental Gel to receive benefits?"
You will still receive benefits without using a toothbrush. With some geriatric pets with poor dental health, you may not be able to use a toothbrush due to the condition of their teeth and gums.
However, brushing can help speed up the cleaning of your dog's or cat's mouth. Use a finger brush, a soft toothbrush for pets, or a simple piece of gauze and rub along your pet's teeth and gums.
4. I have heard that rosemary oil and grain alcohol might be dangerous for pets to consume. Should I be concerned about these ingredients?"
In each application, your pet receives very small quantities of these substances. The manufacturer uses a small amount of rosemary oil to help preserve the product naturally without using chemical preservatives, and alcohol to help stabilize the essential oils.
5. I haven’t routinely brushed my middle-aged pet's teeth and they are quite dirty. Is it 'too little, too late' to start using the dental gel now?"
You're not alone when you ask this question as many pet owners are in the same shoes... The important point here is awareness of the issue and positive action to start cleaning now. Granted, the Dental Gel may not give your pet perfectly clean teeth, but you will be helping to keep them cleaner than they would be without use of the product.
