Genitrix Dentagen Large Dog Chews
In the UK 87% of dogs and 70% of cats over the age of three are affected by periodontal disease. Dental plaque is the major causative agent for periodontal disease. Current preventative measures rely on mechanical enzymatic or antibacterial methods to reduce the amount of plaque on the teeth.
Dentagen is different. It contains RF2 the surface biofilm control agent. Research at the University of Ghent (Faculty of Pharmaceutical Microbiology) involved setting up a dental plaque mimicking biofilm flow system. In this artificial mouth model hundreds of plant extracts and plant fractions were screened for their inhibitory potential on biofilm formation. Plaque is a biofilm. A natural anti-plaque compound was elucidated from one of these plant screens and coded RF2.
