Teeth & Oral healthcare

Having your pet’s teeth cleaned can cost at the Vet $500-1200 annually depending on how bad tartar build-up has occurred and the location of your Veterinarian. It is best to treat plaque when it is soft and removable, it takes 24-48 hours for plaque to mineralise forming tartar. The product below will assist in preventing those costly annual Vet bills.

Ascophyllum Nodosum

Easy daily health regime which has been proven to reduce the formation of plaque and soften tartar which is already existing. A small pinch over the dogs’ food is all you need for this product to work. It helps with bad breath, balances the gut health, and as a result improves dogs smelly farts… win-win.

All products below are organic and sustainable sourced.

Caution: This product is not recommended for use for dogs with a known thyroid condition.

Ear Mites and Ear Cleaning

Dachshunds with their long folded ears are prone to ear mites (known as ear canker) and bacterial and yeast ear infections if not routinely cleaned. Humid weather will quickly turn dirty ears into swollen, red, itchy, and smelly ears that will make your dog uncomfortable and cost upwards of $250 at the Vet to be treated.
