Dental disorders are common in dogs and cats and are a major reason for a visit to the vet. Over 75% of dogs and
cats around the age of 2 or 3 already suffer from problems such as tartar and gingivitis. Treatment is necessary for
a good recovery, this usually involves the teeth being cleaned under anaesthetic. If left untreated, dental disease
can eventually lead to loss of teeth and even to infections elsewhere in the body, so early intervention is
important. Dental problems can largely be avoided by proper and regular dental care and by giving special food such
as Royal Canin Dental Diet.
Daily dental hygiene
Limitation of the development of dental plaque and tartar
Preventing bladder stones
While chewing, the special structure, shape and size of Royal Canin Dental Diet assists in a mechanical cleaning
of the teeth. Sodium polyphosphate binds calcium in the oral cavity and thus prevents the formation of tartar.
Increasing urine volume decreases the concentrations of minerals in the urine which can cause bladder stones. Thus,
formation of struvite and calcium oxalate stones are reduced. Carefully selected, highly digestible protein sources
ensure optimal digestion and a reduced amount of faeces. Special dietary fibres in Royal Canin Dental Diet ensure
that cat hairballs can easily get lost and reduce the unpleasant consequences, such as vomiting and/or constipation.
