Home / What Is Calprox® And How Does It Work?

Petsmile is the first VOHC accepted toothpaste for plaque inhibition with the science of Calprox®.

Our proprietary breakthrough Calprox® formula is an encapsulated form of Calcium Peroxide and minerals. Calprox® works by gently dissolving the protein pellicle a bio-film that forms on your pet’s teeth, and re-mineralizes enamel. It is that biofilm which plaque, bacteria, and stains adhere. If the protein pellicle is left on your pet’s teeth it can lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease.

Removing the protein pellicle with Petsmile showed a 62% greater reduction in plaque and a 28% greater reduction in gingivitis than the control pet toothpaste. Your pet’s mouth will always be left cleaner, healthier, fresher breath, and whiter teeth.

Calprox® is as safe as water on your pet’s enamel.  Many cat and dog toothpastes use silica (a sand-like material) which is highly abrasive. Over time silica can thin your pet’s enamel which may cause sensitivity and potentially lead to more serious oral problems.  Petsmile contains no silica, parabens, sulfates, known allergens, animal by-products, triclosan, microbeads, polyethylene, and BPA.
