68% of U.S. households, about 85 million families, own a pet, according to a survey by the American Pet Products Association. When it comes to taking a vacation, pet owners are faced with two choices: either leave their beloved pet in the care of someone else, or bring them along on the journey.

Petsmile VS The Regular Pet Toothpaste Brand

The Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC) was founded in 1997 in order to provide an objective means to recognize efficacious products. A panel including veterinary dentists, dental scientists and  various organizations created a system of product review and acceptance for pet dental products. Products undergo extensive tests, with two separate trials required to statistically validate the results. During these trials, Petsmile showed a 62% greater reduction in plaque and a 28% greater reduction in gingivitis than the control pet toothpaste. Petsmile became the first toothpaste awarded the VOHC Acceptance Seal for plaque inhibition. The VOHC Acceptance Seal is recognized worldwide.
