MAXIGUARD® Oral Cleansing Gel + Vitamin C (110ml)

MAXIGUARD® Oral Cleansing Gel + Vitamin C (110ml)

MAXI/GUARD® Oral Cleansing Gel + Vitamin C is packaged in a 110ml bottle with a component vial of granulated ascorbic acid (vitamin C). To activate the product, pour the ascorbic acid into the gel bottle, wait for the granules to sink to the bottom of the bottle and shake until dissolved.  The product should now be stored out of direct sunlight and heat.  It will have a shelf-life of approximately 6 months in a cool, dark place or approximately 14 months in a refrigerator.  Over time, the mixed product will start to change colour from blue to green.  Any shade of blue or green denotes the product is fresh and efficacious. It will lose viscosity over time but this will not affect the compliance of the product. If the product turns to a yellowish or brownish colour, the product should be replaced.

MAXI/GUARD® Oral Cleansing Gel + Vitamin C has a long history of being the most complete home dental care product available.  The unique zinc ascorbate formulation is very effective in helping reduce gingival inflammation, reducing the deposition of plaque and neutralising offensive mouth odours.

It is recommended for severe oral problems such as advanced periodontal cases, post oral surgery and pre and post prophy.  Aids in the healing of extraction sites, oral lesions and inflamed gums.  Use to aid the healing of ulcerated sore gums due to malocclusion, therefore ideal for rabbits.

We advise you to activate the product before dispensing to the pet owner.  A simple demonstration will ensure that your clients apply the product in a way that is acceptable to their pet.

  1. |Description|Both MAXI/GUARD® Oral Cleansing Gel and MAXI/GUARD® Oral Cleansing Gel + Vitamin C are very effective home dental care products.  Both of these products are ideally dispensed immediately after a professional dental prophylaxis and, when used properly, can extend the time between these dentals.  Each product can also be used as a natural adjunct to antibiotic treatment. They both have the combination of zinc with the select amino acid taurine.

    Both products are safe and effective for all animals including dogs, cats, small furries, exotics and horses.

    Zinc is an essential trace element and a component of about 300 metallo-enzyme systems.  Many of these enzymes play key roles in extra-cellular matrix remodelling, gingival healing, connective tissue repair, inflammation and cell proliferation for repair processes. Zinc has a very wide margin of safety.  Cats and dogs require a certain amount of zinc from their daily diet and a healthy pet can consume daily recommended amounts of each product without harm.  Any excess zinc entering the body is excreted back into the GI tract while a smaller fraction is excreted by the kidneys.

    Vitamin C is important in the production of collagen, which is the main structural protein in gingiva.  Vitamin C, however, does increase salivation in some cats.  Taurine chelates with sulphur compounds and absorbs malodorous activity eliminating halitosis.

    The application of each product is very easy.  Dispense the specified amount in pea sized drops directly from the bottle using the applicator tip or use a swab.  The drops should be applied to the outside back upper molars on both sides of the mouth. The mouth's natural cleansing action will distribute the gel to its remotest areas.  Having no need to brush means MAXI/GUARD® Oral Cleansing Gel and MAXI/GUARD® Oral Cleansing Gel + Vitamin C are ideal for increasing pet acceptance and building client loyalty.  However, we do not wish to deter owners from brushing as any extra mechanical action will aid better results.  Therefore, if the pet owner prefers to brush, apply as above but wait 30 seconds before doing so as this allows the gel to migrate around the mouth.  The products are safe for long-term use and helps control gingivitis, plaque and halitosis.  Both products are chlorhexidine free so there is no discolouration of teeth.
