Our Gum Rescue for dogs and cats helps to promote oral health* for your canine and feline companions. The USDA organic herbs used in this formula help to address the needs of those with gum inflammation called gingivitis or more serious periodontitis in which there can be damage to underlying bone/tissue. These needs include antiseptic action to help control oral pathogens that contribute to gum disease, healing action to promote the healing of damaged tissue, anti-inflammatory action to help reduce inflammation, pain and bleeding, and finally circulatory action to help bring nutrients to this area while helping to clear away waste products.
When comparing Gum Rescue to other available formulas you may wish to consider what this formula includes: USDA organic herbs in organic MCT oil from coconut, as well as what it doesn't contain, and this list can be quite long, but typically includes alcohol or grapefruit seed extract that can damage delicate gum tissue and beneficial intestinal flora if used frequently along with flavorings and other unnecessary additives.
Gum Rescue is more gentle for your dog or cat than other formulas yet effective, and it does not have a strong taste when compared to other similar oral formulas for animals so it should be much easier for you to apply to maintain or improve the health of your dog or cat's gums.
