The fact is periodontal disease is bad news for dogs. It causes bad breath and can be painful not to mention expensive! And just as in humans, poor dental health in animals can be linked to diseases of the heart and other organs.
But the good news is that YES! Ascophyllum nodosum Seaweed is proven to improve the health of your dog’s teeth, remove plaque and help with bad breath.
Bad breath in dogs is caused by the bacteria in the mouth and is an indicator of dental disease. Dog’s teeth accumulate food debris and bacteria which combine with saliva to form plaque on their teeth. If the plaque is not removed, within three to five days it can harden to form tartar which irritates the gums causing gingivitis and bad breath. If this is not dealt with early, it can progress to tooth loss, bleeding from the mouth and decreased appetite. At this stage, the damage is irreversible.
Ascophyllum nodosum is a species of kelp which helps to keep your pet’s teeth clean and reduce bad breath in a natural way. Additionally, kelp is a superfood for dogs and cats due to its abundance of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants.
How does it work?
Sprinkle the directed amount onto or mix in with your dogs food. If you cook your dogs food, add the seaweed in afterwards, immediately before serving.
After being consumed by your dog the seaweed works in several ways to support a healthy mouth. It has natural anti-adhesive, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. The key elements that make ascophyllum nodosum so helpful with mouth hygiene are the bio-actives Fucoidan and Polyphenol .The bacteria is prevented from sticking to the tooth enamel, tartar build-up is reduced and existing plaque is loosened.
