Cardinal Pet Care Will Launch Dental and Grooming Solutions at Global Pet Expo
Cardinal Pet Care will debut two dental pet products at Global Pet Expo 2019, which will be held in Orlando, Fla., March 20-23. The company will showcase its Remedy+Recovery Plaque Re-Lease Quick Melt tablets and Remedy+Recovery Hemp Breath Spray at its Global Pet Expo booth (3323).
Remedy+Recovery Plaque Re-Lease Quick Melt is a unique product in tablet form that reduces plaque and tartar without brushing, said company officials. Pet owners simply place one Plaque Re-Lease tablet inside the cheek, where it will remove plaque and tartar as it dissolves. The tablets contain all-natural cranberry extract, which adheres to dental surfaces and interferes with the plaque forming process, the company reports. Plaque Re-Lease tablets work below the gum line to clean dogs’ teeth and freshen breath—no brushing required.
Remedy+Recovery Hemp Breath Spray provides preventive dental care in spray form. Regular use of the spray will improve oral health by helping to prevent tooth decay and fight bacteria. Made with safe and gentle ingredients, the multi-functional spray contains Hemp to soothe gums, Natural peppermint oil to freshen breath, natural baking soda to rebalance pH, and manuka honey to provide natural antimicrobial properties.
The two new dental products were developed to provide pet owners with alternatives to toothbrushing that promote canine dental health, noted Tony de Vos, president of Cardinal Pet Care in Azusa, Calif.
“The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and other veterinary dental authorities recognize that periodontal disease is the most common clinical condition occurring in adult dogs and cats, and is entirely preventable,” de Vos said. “Our multiple solutions are innovative, high-performing and easy to administer. They offer new options to pet parents who want to put their dogs and cats on a regular program of at-home preventive dental care.”
Both new dental products are being sold under Cardinal’s Remedy+Recovery brand, known for its pet health and first-aid solutions, officials said.
The company will also showcase dental solutions in the EcoBath Manuka Honey grooming brand. Made with natural manuka honey from New Zealand, the EcoBath line includes: shampoo, conditioner, detangling spray, anti-itch spray, tooth gel and dental water additive.
A popular ingredient in human personal care products, manuka honey is known for its natural healing and antibacterial properties, according to the company. In EcoBath products, manuka honey is blended with other high-quality organic and botanical ingredients to create Cardinal’s exclusive Honey Hygiene, a new nature-based restorative approach to caring for pets’ coat, skin, and teeth and gums.
Along with manuka honey, EcoBath coat and skin products contain organic hempseed oil and organic chamomile extract for moisturizing and conditioning–providing pets with healing, rejuvenating and beautifying benefits, according to the company. EcoBath Tooth Gel not only helps heal gums, but actually hardens teeth and helps rebuild tooth enamel. In addition to healing and soothing gums, EcoBath Dental Water Additive includes glucosamine for joint health and electrolytes for rehydration.
Designed to be safe for “pets, people and the planet,” EcoBath products contain no harmful ingredients or harsh chemicals, including no parabens, sulfates, cyclic silicones, DEA/MEA, BHT, triclosan, gluten, or artificial colors or fragrances. The eco-friendly line is manufactured with solar power in southern California.
