For the first two weeks, use VetzLife Oral Care Gel twice/daily if there is a heavy tartar build-up and/or red, inflamed gums are present. Otherwise, one application per day is normally all that is needed for moderate buildups.
After one to two weeks, inflammation should subside and breath should be greatly improved. Generally, after 30 days, applications can be reduced to 2 or 3 times weekly for maintenance.
For best results, withhold food and water 30 minutes before and after applications. Nighttime usage is best so that VetzLife Oral Care Gel can work all night.
Brushing is not necessary, but it will help accelerate the desired results. The brushing action helps remove plaque and tartar that already has been softened. After 8 to 10 days, use a soft or finger brush or a piece of gauze or tissue and wipe the pet's teeth. Owners will be amazed at how much plaque and tartar comes off.
Easy To Use Gel Application Tip
Not all dogs or cats will tolerate injecting VetzLife Oral Care Gel directly into their mouth. In such cases, just pat some gel on the outside of a pet's lips. Another method involves placing a smear of peanut butter on a pet's food dish with a squeeze of Oral Care Gel on top. Licking this will begin the cleaning process. This works especially well for small lap dogs.
For cats, put some gel directly on top of paws or on top of hind legs and they will lick it off.
