Nylabone® Launches Advanced Oral Care for Dogs and Cats
New line features 22 new and re-formulated products
February 7, 2012NEPTUNE CITY, NJ – — Nylabone®, the makers of safe, healthy chews since 1955, have just unveiled their new Nylabone® Advanced Oral Care line with Denta-CTM, a scientifically-formulated blend of ingredients clinically proven to reduce plaque that harbors bacteria.
“We know that 80 percent of dogs suffer from periodontal disease by the age of 3,” says Mike Connelly, Vice President of Marketing for Nylabone® Products based in Neptune City, N.J. “This comprehensive new line of dental products for both cats and dogs helps pet parents establish a daily routine for proper pet dental care, which may extend the life of their pets.”
The cornerstones of the new product are ingredients Chlorophyll, a safe, natural detoxifier found in nature, and Denta-C, a proprietary blend of ingredients, including vitamin C. Together, this power-duo helps control the build-up of plaque and tartar leading to bad breath. The end result is healthier gums, whiter teeth and a healthier pet.
“Bad breath may be called ‘Doggie Breath,’ but it’s not just a canine issue,” adds Connelly. “Periodontal disease is also one of the most common diseases in cats today.” He goes on to explain that poor oral health in both dogs and cats can lead to more dangerous conditions including lung, heart and kidney problems.
For this new product line, which features 22 dental kits, treats, bars and other dental health aides, the makers of Nylabone® have taken their successful Four Paws Pet DentalTM items and re-formulated them under the Nylabone® Advanced Oral CareTM name, adding five new items to supplement and complete the line.
