You may have noticed some pet dental products have a “Veterinary Oral Health Council Seal of Approval” on them, but what exactly does that mean for you and your dogs’ daily dental chews?
What is “VOHC”?
The Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC) is a board of veterinary dentists and scientists, that recognises dental products that meet pre-set standards of plaque and tartar reduction in dogs and cats. Protocols are set by the board for product trials and those who meet these stringent criteria’s, are awarded the VOHC Seal of Acceptance which is then proudly displayed on awarded products.
Your favourite WHIMZEES Toothbrush and Brushzees shapes have been awarded the VOHC Seal of Acceptance for being scientifically proven to demonstrate a significant reduction in the formation of plaque and tartar*. Having a VOHC Seal of Approval on these two WHIMZEES shapes provides assurance that our products are guaranteed to be effective against plaque and tartar.
What are the benefits of using WHIMZEES once a day?
Home dental care is proven to:
1. Reduce time between dental examinations
2. Impact gum disease (no more smelly breath)
3. Lower the cost of dental cleans (because they have healthy teeth!)
So, when you’re investing in a dog dental chew, check they have been awarded the VOHC Seal of Acceptance
