VetActiv8 Dental Health is made from 100% pure Ascophyllum nodosum seaweed sourced from the pristine waters off the Norwegian coast.

Dental plaque is a soft sticky deposit of bacteria from saliva, food and fluid that coats the teeth and collects where the teeth and gums meet. These bacterial deposits can damage teeth, lead to the formation of tartar, and cause periodontal disease.

Dental tartar (or calculus) forms when minerals from saliva are deposited into dental plaque, making it a hard layer that strongly bonds to the tooth enamel.

Dental disease, such as gingival bleeding, can cause significant pain to pets and, as it advances, they can experience tooth and gum infection, inflammation, bone loss and tooth loss.

Studies assessing dental treatment options in dogs found that compared to dogs not receiving A. nodosum, dogs supplemented with A. nodosum on a daily basis had:

✔ Slower development of dental plaque

✔ Significantly less plaque overall

✔ Significantly lower levels of calculus

✔ Significantly less gingival bleeding 2-3 months post dental surgery



A. nodosum is a rich source of polysaccharides (e.g. ascophyllan, fucoidan & laminarin), phenols, amino acids, and an unique combination of vitamins and trace minerals. These beneficial compounds are absorbed into the blood stream and then released into the oval cavity via the saliva where they work to:

✔ Reduce inflammation

✔ Inhibit tartar build-up

✔ Prevent the adhesion of bacteria to the surface of the tooth, thus inhibiting deposition of plaque.



Ascophyllum nodosum and its natural compounds have been found to have antibacterial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

This stuff is amazing!

I just got this earlier this week for my two dogs, one of them developed really chronic bad breath along with sensitive gums. The vet told us that we would just have to give antibiotics every so often when it gets bad and were suggesting a dental cleaning (he’s 4 yo). I’ve been a long time fan of TCP and so I tried this dental supplement out and in 2 days both my dog’s bad breath was gone even my family noticed! Im waiting to see how it makes a difference on the plaque build up and gum sensitivity! Thank you!

Fantastic products

I regularly buy the gut protect and dental supplements. Both are fantastic and have helped my dogs with their anal gland issues and dental hygiene.
