We recommend Perio Plus Powder, Biotene Water Additive as well as Purina DH dental diet as a daily maintenance for your pet's teeth after the dental cleaning.
Don't forget, dental work is not only for our small furry friends. . . but our large friends too! When was the last time your horse had its teeth floated?
