ProDen PlaqueOff Cat 40 g | Designed Specifically for Cats | Bad Breath, Plaque, Tartar (Packaging May Vary)
About this deal
Plaque off just contains Seaweed and Brewers Yeast which are both extremely unlikely to set off an allergic reaction, however they are not guaranteed not to set one off. If your cat is currently on a food trial then I would avoid the product but if they have been stable for a while then you can try Plaque off. If your cat is allergic to seaweed in particular then you may see signs of the allergy when starting it, if this occurs then stop it immediately. IMPORTANT– Before I continue, though, I want to state now that PlaqueOff should not be given to cats that have hyperthyroidism. I discuss this a bit more below, but I want to make this clear so that cat owners of cats with hyperthyroidism know that this is not a product they should use. Stabilizing” is a good word. We got Lily stabilized. In Lily’s case, her stomatitis wasn’t completely gone, but we got it under control to the point that the pain seemed to be gone. I’m very happy to hear that you were able to stabilize your cat and, hopefully, the stomatitis stays at bay for the rest of his life.
Having your veterinarian perform a dental cleaning under general anesthesia every 6-12 months at the first sign of tartar buildup. Regular dental cleaning is as important in cats as in people, and will go a long way to prevent irreversible damage to the gums and roots.If PlaqueOff and Lysine don’t work, please don’t hesitate to have the cat’s teeth removed. I waited much too long. I’ll discuss with the vet about the side effects of steroids (related to diabetes) and see if we can go with the lowest dosage possible.
I am SO sorry for the delay in approving your comments and responding to them. School got out just before you wrote and I have been busy with my children since then for the summer, which is the reason for my delay. First, tartar forms a rough surface that serves as a place for bacteria to grow and multiply in the mouth. Bacteria can cause inflammation of the gums (gingivitis), which often results in painful bleeding. Possible Feline Infectious Peritonitis in her litter (have had to euthanize 2 of the 4 kittens with what vets suspected to be FIP) but Greta and her surviving sister have been otherwise healthy
I do not yet know the answer to this. I give Lily one scoop per day, and I started giving it to her almost four months ago. The container says that it should last for about six months, but I have quite a bit left. My guess is that one container will last us between nine months and one year. On a side note, the cost sounds horrendous! Just reading it makes my stomach twist up in knots of anxiety.
My two cats with stomatitis are not FIV positive, nor have my two other cats contracted stomatitis.Have you talked to your vet about the drooling or bad breath? It might not be the PlaqueOff causing it. I hope you are able to find relief for your cat.
