What does VOHC mean?
The Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC) seal gives you, as a pet parent, peace of mind that you are not only using a quality product, but one that is proven to be effective and safe for your furry friend. VOHC requirements are strict and include two categories of claims: Helps Control Plaque and Helps Control Tartar.
Plaque is the bacteria-rich, soft layer that quickly forms on the surface of teeth. These bacteria cause gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) and start the process of periodontal disease. Tartar consists of calcium salts from saliva that are on the surface of the teeth and form a hard substance. This is difficult to remove by chewing or brushing. Products receive the VOHC seal after a review of data from studies conducted in accordance with VOHC protocols.
Swedencare’s first VOHC accepted product was our ProDen PlaqueOff® Powder followed by ProDen PlaqueOff® Dental Bites and lastly ProDen PlaqueOff® Powder for Cats. We always aim to get more products VOHC accepted for our customers.When shopping for pet products, make sure to look for the VOHC seal to be sure you get products that serve to make a difference for your pet’s oral health!
Swedencare is proud that our ProDen PlaqueOff® products have received the seal in both categories.
