There are many home care products available that list natural ingredients. It is vital to research these products to ensure that the claims made are based on evidence-based research. The best products to start with would be those listed on the Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC) website as they must undergo rigorous testing in order to receive their endorsement. Each one of these products has a list of ingredients that you can assess to determine if it is right for your pet. For a list of effective dental products, go to the Veterinary Oral Health Council.
