ProDen PlaqueOff 60g
SKU: ProDen PlaqueOff 60g
It is estimated that 85% of dogs and 70% of cats over 3 years show signs of gum disease, the major cause of tooth loss. ProDen PlaqueOff Animal is an innovation in animal dental health that is effective against tartar, plaque and bad breath. Containing only specially selected seaweed and is rich in natural iodine and contains important vitamins and minerals and is free from artificial colours, preservatives, gluten and sugar. PlaqueOff is in a granulated form which is easily added to your pet's food on a daily basis. PlaqueOff works systemically, and research has shown it has a positive effect on plaque and tartar reduction and prevention. 60 grams.
Daily dosage Average Supply based on a 60g pot:
* Small dogs & cats up to 10 kg/ 22.1 lbs: 1/2 scoop (up to 1 year per tub)
* Medium dogs 10-25 kg/ 22.1 lbs - 55.1 lbs: 1 scoop (up to 6 months per tub)
* Large & giant dogs over 25 kg/ 55.1 lbs: 2 scoops (up tp 3 months per tub)
How long does a pot last?
This depends on the size of your pet. For small dogs (up to 10kg) and cats a pot will last up to a
year, whereas for large and giant dogs one pot will last around 3 months (average supply based
on a 60g pot). The 180g and 420g pots are an economical way of using ProDen PlaqueOff™
if you have a number of medium or large dogs.
Are there any side effects?
There are no known side effects, however, due to the rich iodine content in seaweed, this
product may not be suitable for animals undergoing thyroid treatment. If unsure, consult
your vet for advice before starting treatment.
What do I do if my pet STILL has bad breath?
Persistent bad breath may be an indication of a more serious underlying condition and you
should consult your veterinary professional.
Is there anyone that can't use it?
ProDen PlaqueOff™ has not been tested on pregnant, welping or lactating bitches therefore we
suggest that you do not use ProDen PlaqueOff™ during this period.
Can ProDen PlaqueOff™ cause hyperthyroidism?
Hyperthyroidism is a very common disorder of older cats (usually cats over the age of 8 years).
Dogs are rarely affected by this condition. It is caused by an increased production of thyroid
hormone from the thyroid glands, situated in the neck. Thyroid Hormone has an important role in
controlling the body's metabolic rate so animals with hyperthyroidism tend to burn up energy too
rapidly and typically suffer weight loss despite having an increased appetite and increased food
Iodine is important for thyroid function and is naturally present in seaweed, including the type
used in ProDen PlaqueOff™. There is no evidence to suggest that high levels of iodine actually
causes hyperthyroidism, as the body has feedback mechanisms to cope with varying levels.
Only very low or incredibly high levels would pose a problem, and PlaqueOff doesn't fall into
these categories. 1 scoop of ProDen PlaqueOff™ Animal contains 131.1 microgrammes of
If your pet is known to suffer from hyperthyroidism then we suggest that you do not use ProDen
PlaqueOff™. If you are unsure then please contact your veterinary professional for further advice.
My cat / dog is very fussy, what if they won't eat it?
To date we have not had any feedback which suggests that there are any palatability issues.
Cats are notoriously fussy eaters and we have feedback which tells us that this has not been a
problem. If you are having a problem, try hiding the dosage in a treat or splitting the dose over two
meals in the day until your pet is used to it.
My dog / cat hasn't got any plaque, why would I need to use this?
People often tell us that their pet doesn't have any plaque. Whilst your pet may not have any
obviously visible plaque or tartar, they will have plaque in their mouths. Plaque is constantly
forming in the mouth. Only when it has been left does it start to become yellow and hardened.
Owners may not be aware of this until a thick accumulation has formed.
Plaque bacteria are naturally occurring in the mouths of all animals (including humans) and
begin to form a sticky coating across the teeth almost immediately after brushing. Some people /
animals have more plaque than others and so, it is more obvious in some people / animals than
others. Even if your pet doesn't have any visible plaque or tartar (which forms from plaque
bacteria) ProDen PlaqueOff™ can be used to prevent any problems with build up in the future.
After all, tartar takes time to accumulate and doesn't usually appear overnight!
My cat / dog is already on a kelp diet / seaweed supplement, can I give them ProDen
PlaqueOff™ Animal as well?
Yes. The size of the dose of ProDen PlaqueOff™ given is very small and would make no
significant difference to the total seaweed content of the diet. Again, because of the dose size,
ProDen PlaqueOff™ on it's own however, would not give the same benefits as a full kelp
supplement. The species of seaweed in the various products available are different and it is the
especially selected seaweed D1070 in PlaqueOff that has been found to be of benefit in terms of
reduction of plaque and calculus. There should not be any issues with feeding different seaweed
species at the same time.
Can I give my cat / dog ProDen PlaqueOff™ Animal if they are on medication?
Yes, as long as it is not medication for the treatment for Hyperthyroidism.
There is nothing in the contents of ProDen PlaqueOff™, (which only contains granulated
seaweed) that would be likely to cause unwanted reactions. It is currently being used with cats
and dogs that have heart, liver, kidney, bowel and other disorders. However, if you have any
concerns, please consult with your veterinary professional.
