Ascophyllum nodosum seaweed can be used as a nutritional supplement for improved dental health , and a general nutrient boost for sparkling coats and general health.

Ascophyllum nodosum seaweed, commonly known as Norwegian Kelp, Common Wrack or Rockweed, is a brown seaweed which grows along the North Atlantic shorelines of Canada and Europe. The seaweed is harvested off the cold, clean coast of Nova Scotia, Canada using environmentally sound hand harvesting techniques to safeguard the natural resource and to ensure only Ascophyllum nodosum is harvested. The company's rigorous quality control standards and passive solar drying techniques preserve the maximum benefits of the live seaweed.

Ascophyllum nodosum contains generous levels of vitamins including A, B1, C, D and E. It is also rich in minerals calcium, potassium, zinc, iodine, magnesium, iron and copper as well as amino acids and trace elements. Seaweed can also help strengthen the depth of coat colour and support strong nervous system and healthy digestion. It is recognised to have potential uses as a functional food to improve human gut health (therefore dog gut health also!). It high levels of calcium to help promote healthy skin, strong bones and teeth in both horses and dogs. It is clinically proven to improve dental health over a 90 day period, it is thought that it affects the ability of plaque to stick to surfaces in the mouth, and also softens hard tartar deposits.

There are no known side effects, though because all seaweed has high amounts of iodine, this product may not be suitable for animals undergoing thyroid treatment. It can be used by cats and dogs and is recommended that the product is started when the animal has it’s permanent teeth.

A perfect 'alternative' for PlaqueOff

After a month of use I have seen a slight reduction in plaque build up on one of my dog's teeth. I probably started using it too late as the vet needs to remove the large plaque build up, but it will be a staple after the cleaning so we don't run into that issue again. Within two days his breath smelt like *nothing*! Which is so pleasant because he LOVES breathing directly into my face. He's also stopped pawing at his mouth (poor baby his gums must have been irritated). I say 'alternative' because it's the same exact ingredient, but this one comes in bigger sizes and is more affordable.
