It is very important to maintain good oral hygiene in our diabetic pets. Infection of any sort can result in insulin resistance, and oral infection is a common cause of insulin resistance. If only we could get our little furry friends to brush and floss! Alas, it ain’t gonna happen.

As a veterinarian I have told countless clients how to brush their pet’s teeth. I’ve given out (in post-dental cleaning goody bags) samples of toothpaste, tooth brushes, dental diets, and CET chews. After all these years I recognize that glazed over look that surfaces when I start telling folks how they can brush their pet’s teeth to avoid another costly vet bill next year when the dental cleaning rolls around. Only when I get to the part where I point out the CET Chew (versions made for both dogs and cats) do I see a glimmer of hope. “Aha”, they think, “something we might actually do!”

I’m pleased to announce that American Diabetes Wholesale is now carrying Virbac’s CET Dental Chews for our patients. They are great products and can make a big difference in your pet’s oral health, regardless of whether your pet is a diabetic.

More importantly, it is a treat that most pets adore.

NOTE: Consult your veterinarian to confirm that my recommendations are applicable for the health needs of your pet.
