ProDen PLAQUE OFF
ProDen PlaqueOff® Animal is a revolutionary pet dental product available from veterinary practices and selected pet shops. Used daily, this completely natural product made from seaweed can significantly help reduce dental plaque and tartar and improve breath in cats and dogs.
Dental care is unfortunately one of the most overlooked health issues that pet owners concern themselves with. As in humans, plaque bacteria constantly forms in the mouth of all cats and dogs. Once plaque has calcified into tartar it can no longer be brushed off. In many cases it has to be removed by a vet using ultrasound and anaesthetic.
If tartar build-up is left untreated it can result in bad breath, gum disease, tooth decay and premature tooth loss. Tartar that is allowed to remain for too long can also cause infections that can spread throughout the body and damage the heart, lung, liver and negatively affect kidney functions.
Since daily brushing of your cat or dog’s teeth can be difficult to achieve, ProDen PlaqueOff® Animal provides an easy solution to improving your pet’s oral hygiene.
An internationally patented and clinically tested product, ProDen PlaqueOff® Animal fights tartar and plaque on tooth surfaces and reduces bacterial presence. The active element in PlaqueOff® Animal is a specially selected seaweed, Ascophyllum nodosum, harvested from the clean and cold seas of Norway and Iceland. A 100% all natural product, ProDen PlaqueOff® Animal is free from artificial colours and preservatives and contains no gluten or sugar.
Unlike most other plaque control products that are applied directly on the teeth, PlaqueOff® Animal works systematically and comes in powder that is sprinkled on your pet’s food. When the ingredients are absorbed into the blood via the digestion and enters the saliva, they effectively prevent accumulation of plaque by affecting the ability of plaque to ‘stick’ to surfaces in the mouth. Existing tartar becomes porous, looses by itself or can be easily removed by brushing or cleaning.
Improvements can usually be seen as early as after 3 to 8 weeks
If your dog or cat suffers from bad breath this may indicate a problem with oral health. Plaque and tartar are major health issues in canines and felines, and especially in older animals. In dogs, the smaller breeds suffer most, but plaque and tartar are found in all breeds to a lesser or greater extent.
Dental plaque is a biofilm that develops naturally on teeth when these do not get enough use or enough cleaning. When the plaque calcifies, it turns into tartar. This appears primarily on the rim of the gums (the gumline) and on the back teeth. Tartar is very difficult to remove without the help of a veterinarian.
We recommend that you make it a habit to examine the teeth of your dog or cat once a week. The animal will become accustomed to you examining its mouth and you will be able to discover any dental deterioration at an early stage. Unlike humans, dogs and cats rarely get cavities, but are much more prone to excess tartar build-up and gum disease (gingivitis). Gingivitis can be seen as reddening of the gums adjacent to the teeth. It also causes bad breath.
If tartar is not removed from your pet’s teeth, it builds up under the gums and separates the gums from the teeth to form “pockets” which encourages even more bacterial growth. At this point the damage is irreversible and can be very painful. Unfortunately, dogs and cats are experts at masking discomfort and pain and many owners may not notice that their pet has a problem.
The best way of keeping your pet’s teeth and gums healthy is by removing plaque regularly and thoroughly with the use of a toothbrush. However, since many dogs and cats do not permit their teeth to be brushed, ProDen PlaqueOff® Animal provides a complimentary solution which helps keep plaque and tartar under control.
ProDen PlaqueOff® Animal is ingested together with pet food and pets generally begin to see results over a 2-8 week period. How fast you will be able to notice a difference depends on how long the problem has been affecting your dog’s or cat’s oral health.

I don’t notice any effects. Why is that?
Individual reactions to a preparation can vary. The same is true of PlaqueOff® Animal. If you don’t notice any effects, it is likely just a matter of time. In other cases, the recommended dosage may be too low. If you haven’t noticed any effects after two months, increase the dosage. Once a visible effect has been attained you can return to a normal dosage. Often PlaqueOff® has been effective even if buildup remains on the teeth. When you try to brush or scrape away buildup, you will likely discover that it is easier to remove than before.
Can humans take PlaqueOff® Animal?
Yes, take two scoops daily. There are also tablets designed for humans,
PlaqueOff® Human, based on the
How long can I give my pet PlaqueOff® Animal?
PlaqueOff® Animal should be given on a regular basis in accordance with the dosage instructions, as problems with plaque, tartar and bad breath will otherwise return. Results can usually be seen after approximately four weeks and the positive effects can be seen as long as the product is used.
Can I stop brushing my dog’s teeth?
PlaqueOff® Animal is not a substitute for brushing. By brushing your pet’s teeth, you will help remove plaque and tartar.
Will my dog or cat receieve too many vitamins and minerals by taking PlaqueOff® Animal?
PlaqueOff® Animal contains a wide array of vitamins, minerals and trace elements, but in very small quantities. There is therefore no risk of oversupplementing with our product, even if your pet is already receiving vitamins and minerals from another source.
I have a finicky cat. Will my cat like your product?
Most dogs and cats like the smell and taste of PlaqueOff®. If your cat is reluctant to eat his food, you can begin with a smaller dosage and gradually increase it. Try mixing our product with a small amount of fish pate, yoghurt or something else that your cat really likes. You can also try our new product, PlaqueOff® Cat, which is made specifically for felines.
Have any studies been done on the potential effects of PlaqueOff® on the bones?
There are no studies showing that consuming PlaqueOff® Animal damages the skeletal system (or tooth enamel); on the contrary, studies indicate a positive effect on the bones. For example, studies by Yamaguchi et al (1998-2000) show that the phenols in algae stimulate bone synthesis.
