Purina Veterinary Diets® DH Dental Health® Feline Formula
The role of dietary management in dental disease is to provide a proper balance of total nutrients that can be fed every day for maintenance while meeting the special dietary needs of the patient. Nutritional management of cats that are prone to the formation of tartar centers on feeding a kibble that significantly decreases the accumulation of tartar. This can be accomplished by designing a kibble that is both large enough to promote increased chewing time and that has a special texture to allow the tooth to penetrate deep into the kibble before it breaks. Greater tooth penetration extends contact time with the kibble for an excellent cleaning effect.
