Logic Oral Hygiene Gel is suitable for cats and dogs of all ages and the ideal time for pet owners to start using it is after the teeth have been checked, descaled and polished by their vet.
Tooth brushing is known to be the single most effective way of removing plaque and ideally Logic Oral Hygiene Gel should be used with regular brushing.

Based on a multi-enzyme patented system, Logic® Oral Hygiene Gel supplements the animal’s own defence mechanism to help fight harmful bacteria in the mouth.
The gel also contains a surfactant which ensures that the active ingredients remain in contact with the teeth and gums and mild abrasives that help break down existing plaque.

Dental Disease in Dogs and Cats
Studies have shown that dental disease is present in over 89% of dogs and 70% of cats over the age of three. The disease usually develops in the following stages:
- Gingivitis – redness of the gums, especially along the gum margin
- Bad breath – caused by the build of millions of bacteria within the mouth
- Plaque – a creamy layer on the surface of the tooth that is composed of food debris and bacteria
- Calculus – formed from the hardening of plaque and has a rough brown appearance
As dental disease progresses, the ligaments holding the teeth to the gums and the underlying bone can also become destroyed resulting in loose teeth, which may require extraction by your veterinary surgeon. Bacteria within the mouth can also enter the bloodstream and cause damage to other organs in the body, for example the heart, kidney and liver.
If there is a lot of disease within the mouth and/or the teeth are loose then professional cleaning by your veterinary surgeon will be required. However, even after having a dental, plaque will start building up within hours and therefore homecare is essential in order to help prevent this from occurring.
Logic® Oral Hygiene Gel and Logic® Chews can be used alone or together and, thanks to their advanced veterinary formulation, will destroy bacteria within the mouth, help prevent your pets from developing dental disease (with its painful and harmful consequences) and stop them from getting bad breath!
