Over time your dog’s teeth can have a buildup of plaque, very much like our own would if we did not brush them. Bad breath is often the first sign of oral hygiene problems and It is estimated that 80% of all dogs and cats over three years of age have dental disease.
Tooth brushing is known to be the single most effective way of removing plaque. If left untreated, the gums become detached from the tooth forming ‘pockets’ which predispose to further plaque build up. This represents the first stage of periodontitis (inflammation of the gums and supporting structures of the teeth). Early stage periodontitis can be REVERSIBLE with professional descaling, polishing and subsequent home care.
In the absence of appropriate care, the progression of periodontitis causes gum recession and destruction of the tooth’s supporting structures. This may result in root exposure, abscess formation and teeth becoming loose or falling out. Advanced stages of periodontitis are IRREVERSIBLE and may require tooth extraction.
The Logic® dental range is to help prevent this and on top of using Logic Oral Gel your dog will benefit from a daily low calorie dental chew.
Logic Orozyme Dental Chews are available for all sizes of dogs as they can all be affected by dental disease.
Remember that prevention is better than cure!

If you notice any of these, a check up with your vet is advisable and beginning a regular dental regime is also likely to be necessary.
Logic Orozyme Chews are rawhide and collagen based and extremely palatable.
They are low in calories and due to the way they are made they take a long time to chew through. The collagen naturally enhances the mechanical action of chewing on the teeth and gums and assists in the removal of the plaque. In addition, LOGIC Orozyme Chews contain an enzyme complex, which assists the mouth’s natural defence system while minimising bacteria within the mouth.
