ioVet launches healthy gums
This unique molecular iodine canine and feline health product supports healthy gums and periodonts.
By the age of 2, about 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have some form of periodontal disease (periodontal).1 which is characterized by the destruction of the supporting bone and ultimately the loss of teeth. Symptoms include bleeding or swollen gums, pus around the teeth, and continued bad breath.
To help combat these statistics, ioVet, a wholly owned division of Iotech International Inc, unveiled its latest product, Healthy Gums, a first patented molecular iodine dental product available for dogs and felines that supports the gum and periodontal health while freshening breath and promoting general well-being.
According to a company statement,2 Healthy Gums is added to a pet’s drinking water daily and provides an economical solution of less than a full teaspoon per liter of water. It begins to work immediately to drastically reduce the build-up of dental plaque. Less plaque results in healthier gum tissue for pets, reducing stains, discoloration and bad odor on teeth. Plus, this effective and easy-to-use solution bodes well for pets who have an aversion to toothbrushes.
“I wish pet owners would spend more time focusing on the health of their pet’s teeth and gums,” Andre Jones, PhD, chemist and director of R&D at ioTech International, said in the statement.2 âLike humans, pets live longer and need better oral care throughout their lives. Placing a molecular iodine water additive in their drinker is the easiest way to help your pet maintain healthy gums and prevent nasty, smelly breath.
In addition, a recent study cited by the press release2 found that using molecular iodine as a water additive is 177% more effective than brushing every 2 days and 444% more effective than brushing weekly. As a result, molecular iodine has received the prestigious Seal of Acceptance from the Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC) for its effectiveness in safely reducing the formation of dental plaque in companion animals.
Molecular iodine is also used successfully in human dentistry, as demonstrated by the product Iotech ioRinse, which is a top choice among leading periodontists as well as a full line of molecular iodine dental products.2
