Please note: if you have already been lucky enough to win one of these bloggers giveaways, please refrain from entering in order to allow others to win. Thank you!

Are you as clever at saving as the Thrifty Ninja? Regardless, you’ll definitely want to read her review and giveaway here. Let me tell you, this lady has done her homework! Here’s an expert from her post, “TheraBreath has an entire line of products to help with oral care.  Do get canker sores inside your mouth?  I hate them!  Well……studies have found that the ingredient sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) which is found in most toothpastes can cause a breakdown of the tissues in the mouth, leading to canker sores!  So your TOOTHPASTE may be causing you to get those annoying sores.  TheraBreath is one of the only toothpastes that does not contain SLS.” She is absolutely right! She also had her husband try out her products and this was not an easy task. She writes, “Now the test was my husband, because he is normally against anything that “out of the ordinary.” Pay this Thrifty Ninja a visit to find out what she thought and be sure to enter her giveaway too!

Everyone wants to be a star, right? Well then be sure to visit Star Impulse. She too has posted a review and is hosting a giveaway. What did she think of our TheraBreath toothpaste, oral rinse and mouth wetting lozenges? Here’s a snippet, “I was pretty worried trying this products because I’d imagine a product that cures bad breath probably doesn’t taste delicious so I did put it off a few days. I have a weird gag reflex with things that I expect to taste like a certain flavor and ends up tasting different. Like toothpaste I expect to taste like mint but if it’s fruity I gag. Weird? Maybe. So I prepared myself for this stuff and you know what? Not bad. Definitely not minty but not a bad taste, not like delicious, but it’s mild and very manageable. I didn’t gag at all and it really does get rid of bad oniony breath, take it from me.” We know you want to read the rest, so click here to do so.

Hey Lorri is a blog about “product reviews, books, giveaways, family and Nellie!” She’s done a review and giveaway for us too. She actually isn’t new to our products… “I’m always up for trying new personal care products.  After receiving my new Therabreath products, I remembered that I had received a sample years ago and did a post, which you can read HERE.  The look of the containers has changed a bit since then, but it still cleans just as well and makes me wonder why I didn’t keep using it, other than not being able to find it in the stores around me through the years.” That was then, this is now, so click here to see what she thinks of our newer products, other than how they look and to enter a chance to get some free TheraBreath products.

This one is for all you dog owners out there. Joan and Riah’s Reviews And Giveaways has done a review of our Dr. Katz for Dogs + Cats Oral Solution. She’s done all of the work us in her post. She writes, “Do you have a dog or cat that you just love to cuddle and they get a little close and Woo Wee their breath could knock you off your feet? Does your cat have fish breath?  If you are like my husband and I, the dog is our kid and a big part of our family!  I don’t know what I would do without my lovely pet.. She is the best in my eyes and I am careful about taking good care of her, as I want to keep her around as long as I can and keep her healthy!” We couldn’t have said it better. Now the big question is did this solution work for her? Click here to find out and to enter a chance to win some for your four legged friend.

Pets with Bad Breath

Monday, November 29th, 2010

According to the 2009/2010 National Pet Owners Survey, 62% of all U.S. households own a pet. That is about 71.4 million homes. The majority of these pets are dogs, closely followed by cats.

But these four-legged creatures are often much more than just a pet, they are truly members of the household and family. Many of us care for these pets as if they are our own children.  We take them to the vet and groomers regularly, and spend hundreds of dollars a year on pet care.

While we give them treats (such as raw-hides) to chew on, our pets may still have dental problems and bad breath. Did you know that periodontal disease is the #1 disease in dogs and cats? Bad breath is one major sign that your pet may be suffering from this. So rather than spend large amounts of money on non-anesthetic cleanings or risk the more evasive anesthetic cleanings on your pet, try treating it naturally and effectively with Dr. Katz for Dogs + Cats Oral Solution.

Does Your Dog Have Bad Breath?

Friday, February 12th, 2010

bad breath in dogs

While most people just accept the fact that their dog’s breath smells like…well, dog breath…what they don’t realize is that odor might signify serious health risks with the potential to damage not only your pooches’ teeth and gums but also its internal organs.  To address the significance of oral health care for pets, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and several other veterinary groups have joined to declare February as National Pet Dental Health Month.

Bacteriologist and fresh breath guru, Dr. Harold Katz, is not only an expert on fresh breath for humans, he is also THE expert on fresh breath for man’s best friend. Dr. Katz is available to come in-studio with his electronic breath testing device, the Halimeter, and measure some pups’ breath on air, giving pet parents sensible tips on how to prevent doggie gum disease and get rid of bad breath in dogs for good!

Katz has been a featured guest on tons of local and national TV shows across the country.  Click here to view his most recent interview on Fox & Friends, and to access his full demo reel: http://www.viddler.com/explore/drkatz/videos/123/.

Thanks for your consideration – let me know what you think!

February is National Pet Dental Month!

Friday, February 5th, 2010

pet health

February is National Pet Dental Month!  According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 80% of dogs and 70% of cats allegedly have symptoms of dental disease by age three!  Beyond that, oral disease is also the most commonly diagnosed health issue for our canine and feline friends.  We may hear about bad breath in pets all the time, but that doesn’t mean that it could be caused by something serious. 

Periodontal disease has the same roots in dogs and cats as it does in people.  Bacteria from food can build up in the oral cavity, and if it’s left untreated, the bacteria cause plaque and tartar buildup on the teeth and gumline.  Over time, if the buildup is neglected, periodontitis can form, which is an irreversible condition involving gum inflammation and infection.  If the gums are inflamed, they become separated from the teeth, thus allowing bacteria to enter and attack the tooth’s root.  Furthermore, bacteria can also enter the bloodstream and venture on over to the heart, liver, kidneys, and other organs, and cause serious problems.

These are all reasons as to why it is very important to be proactive about protecting your pet’s health.  Some warning signs that you can look for in your pet are: bad breath, yellow-brown crust on the teeth, bleeding gums, changes in eating/chewing habits, pawing at the mouth, and/or depression.  These are all potential signs that the pet has an infection, and you should schedule a dental checkup as soon as you can.  If the pet is in good health, one should schedule regular veterinarian visits anyway.   A pet owner should schedule a professional cleaning to have the following done: tartar removal, cavity/growth check, diseased teeth extracted, and tooth polishing.  Tooth polishing helps prevent the formation of new plaque/tartar buildup

You should also practice regular brushing with your pet, and follow a home care regimen.  You can introduce toothpaste to your pets by using a small amount on your finger and rubbing it on their teeth.   Make sure to use a toothpaste that is specially made for cats and dogs.  The next step is to have the pet lick the bristles of a toothbrush with the toothpaste on it.  Then, you can begin brushing its teeth.  This should be done twice every week.  Don’t give up if your pet doesn’t seem willing to have its teeth brushed. 

Also, certain pet foods actually help plaque/tartar removal, so you can look for that in stores.  Ask your pet’s doctor for any advice.  Good luck and spread the word!

Dog Breath Remedy

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

Most of us are used to the thought of dogs having bad breath, but that may not be a good thing. The dog could have serious health issues causing chronic halitosis. Bad breath is caused by the same anaerobic bacteria that causes this malodor in humans, and these bacteria generally give off a rotten egg smell, since a sulfur substance is excreted. True, dogs may eat and chew on things like rotten bones, and so on, but chronic bad breath can mean serious complications like periodontal disease. It’s a good idea to bring your dog to the vet to try and get a diagnosis. The vet will make some recommendations on what can remedy this condition, based on what causes it. Probiotics may even be helpful in remedying the halitosis. TheraBreath sells a formula specially designed for cats and dogs: just click here for our dog breath remedy. This way, you can make sure your dog kisses from Fido aren’t smelly!
