MAXI/GUARD® Oral Cleansing Gel – Veterinary dentistry's most user-friendly and effective oral cleanser and freshener for dogs, cats, horses, and exotics. MAXI/GUARD Oral Cleansing Gel offers the compound, zinc ascorbate/taurine. The product is natural, safe for daily use, inexpensive, taste free, and provides good pet acceptance. Works with or without brushing.
Dr. Peter Emily explains in his science summary, "Zinc Ascorbate Cysteine - How Does it Work?" in Pet Veterinarian magazine that the sulfur amino acid chelates with malodorous sulfur compounds and oxidizes volatile fatty acids in the mouth. This provides a rapid (after 30 seconds) reduction of halitosis." Dr. Emily further explains that "Zinc ascorbate stimulates collagen production. Basically, collagen stimulation is the repair process of tissue."
Regular visits to the family veterinarian provide you with the best guarantee that your pet's health is sound. However, you can supplement these visits with self-examinations of your pet's mouth and regular use of MAXI/GUARD Oral Cleansing Gel.
MAXI/GUARD Oral Gel may be applied to large dogs directly from the bottle applicator tip. Smaller pets, especially cats, may require finger or swab application. This product is concentrated. Apply a small quantity (pea size droplet) to each side of the mouth when treating cats. Choose the method that makes it easiest for you and your pet to engage in a regular and pleasant program of oral cleansing.
