How to Use VetzLife

For the first application use a small amount of gel or spray to allow your pet to adapt to the peppermint taste and smell, it can sometimes be overwhelming. Our all products are safe for human consumption, so feel free to “share” a taste with your pet to demonstrate that it is ok. After day 3, ease your pet up to the suggested dosage.

Spray or apply gel directly on the largest area of tartar. You will notice your pet licking its lips repeatedly. This helps mix the Oral Care with your pets saliva and the natural ingredients will coat all surfaces of your pet's teeth and gums.

We do not recommend the spray for cats, we favor the special formulated salmon oil flavored peppermint gel. The odorless salmon oil disguises the bitterness of the peppermint which dramatically increases palatability for the felines. The easiest way to apply the salmon oil gel on cats is to put the gel on the pads of their hind paws. They will normally lick it all off. In the small chance that they do not, use a reward system and place the gel on the end of a treat or catnip and let your cat lick it off. Let them consume the treat a half an hour later.

Please store in the refrigerator and do not allow food or water for 30 minutes after application.

Our product works with the enzymes and pets natural saliva to coat the teeth and gums with a film which softens and breaks down the plaque and tartar at and underneath the gum line. It is not meant to brush teeth with, however brushing will help accelerate the desired results. The brushing action helps remove plaque and tartar that already has been softened. You may use a soft or finger brush, or even a piece of gauze or tissue to wipe the teeth after 8 to 10 days. The abrasive action from chewing on food, bones, treats, etc. will also remove plaque and tartar.

We do not discourage brushing with toothpaste. If you are going to continue to brush, please apply directly afterward.
