Additional Information Safety
MAXI/GUARD Oral Cleansing Gel's zinc ascorbate/sulfur amino acid formulation has been in veterinary dentistry use for over 20 years without incident. Laboratory evaluations demonstrate that dosing twice per day at the recommended small volume, will deliver considerably less zinc intake than recognized toxic levels or even the required daily intake from the diet. Natural oral compounds like zinc ascorbate/Taurine are generally recognized as the safest approach to oral care, especially in animals where the product is ingested.
Many home care dental products contain chlorhexidine. Published veterinary dental research has demonstrated that regular chlorhexidine use can increase the rate of mineralization plaque (calculus formation), stain the teeth brown, and decrease the patient's sense of taste. MAXI/GUARD Oral Cleansing Gel does not contain chlorhexidine and does not have these side effects. Tolerability
MAXI/GUARD Oral Gel is the natural solution to pet acceptance problems. Maxi/Guard Oral Gel is an alcohol free, chlorhexidine free and virtually taste free home dental care product that works with or without brushing. Over twenty years of veterinary and pet-owner approval. MAXI/GUARD Oral Gel is safe for all pets, but remember that it is a concentrated product and only a small amount is needed per application. If an excessive amount is used, compliance may be a problem. Helpful Hint:
For preparation and use of MAXI/GUARD Oral Cleansing Gel, open the bottle and pour in the accompanying vial of Vitamin C. Replace applicator tip. After globule drops to the bottom of the bottle, shake until dissolved. Rub or squeeze a small amount (a pea size droplet for cats) on each side above your pet's back upper teeth and gums. A natural cleansing action will distribute product to remote areas. Use daily for best results. Store in a refrigerator or cool, dark cabinet after mixing. As long as the formula is blue-green it is fresh and working. After mixing, the approximate shelf life will be one year in preferred storage conditions.
