What is healthymouth™ water additive?
Over the past few years our lifestyles have changed drastically. Technology is advancing at a tremendous pace, new medical discoveries are being made, pets live longer due to informed veterinary care, social networking has boomed and access to information and knowledge is easier than ever. We are faced with higher demands at work, deadlines to meet and not enough time in a day to get everything done. You want the best for your pet and you do want to take care of their oral health the best you can, but you need a simple easy home dental care plan that will fit in your busy schedule. We understand this - healthymouth™ is here to help.
healthymouth™ is a concentrated dental formula that you simply just add to your pet’s water bowl for them to drink daily. Making the solution up is quick and easy and not time consuming at all. You just add 5ml of the healthymouth™ concentrate to 1 litre of water and then pour it into a drinking bowl for your pet to drink. If your pet does not drink that much during the day, just pour out the amount they need in their bowl and put the rest of the made up solution into the fridge where it can be kept for up to two weeks before discarding.
healthymouth™ contains 100% natural ingredients which are sourced and manufactured in Australia. Compared to most other dental water additives on the market, healthymouth™ does not contain any alcohol, xylitol, antimicrobials or synthetic agents. These agents can be harmful to a pet’s health. You wouldn’t consume mouthwash e.g. Listerine because you know it can be harmful therefore you spit it out after rinsing your mouth. So why would you have your pet drink water additives that contain these agents? There is also no sugar, fat or sodium added to the healthymouth™ formula. The ingredients are all natural so there are no known contraindications for using healthymouth™ in pets except for pets that might have pre-existing allergies to the ingredients. So always consult your veterinarian before use.

How does healthymouth™ work?
Pets, like humans drink throughout the day and after eating. Each time they drink, healthymouth™, the natural ingredients form a “physical barrier” over the teeth. This “physical barrier” helps to prevent bacteria from attaching to tooth surfaces thereby reducing the rate of plaque build-up. Clinical studies have proved that healthymouth™ will reduce plaque build-up by 88%! The ingredients also help to keep any existing plaque on teeth softer for longer so that it can be easier removed by professional dental cleans.
The normal mouth contains its own healthy bacteria called “oral flora” which colonises the mouth leaving minimal room for unhealthy bacteria to invade and colonise. If these healthy “oral flora” are disrupted, there is more room available for unhealthy bacteria to invade and cause disease. Most water additives on the market that contain antimicrobials, alcohol etc., will kill the good as well as the bad bacteria when used. This leaves the mouth vulnerable to the invasion of new bad bacteria to colonise the mouth afterwards as there are no good bacteria left to compete with the new bad invaders. healthymouth’s all natural ingredients does not kill the good bacteria, therefore it helps keep the mouth healthier for longer.
How to use healthymouth?
healthymouth’s mode of action is physical rather than mechanical. This means that healthymouth™ won’t remove any plaque or tartar that is already present on tooth surfaces. The teeth first need to have a professional dental clean to remove any existing plaque and tartar. Plaque can start to build-up quickly after a dental clean if nothing is done at home to prevent it. healthymouth™ should be used DAILY as part of a comprehensive home dental care program to reduce plaque accumulation. We recommend that you introduce healthymouth™ to your pet a week before the professional dental clean, as dentals can be stressful and you might not want to stress your pet by introducing a new product the same day.
If introducing healthymouth™ to your pet for the first time, we recommend to dilute the product first and then gradually work up to the normal dosage. The reason for this is that cats and dogs don’t tolerate rapid changes in their diets as well as humans do and some cats and dogs might develop mild diarrhoea or vomiting if they are changed over too quickly to a new product. So as a recommended guide:
- Day 1 – Make up healthymouth™ as per direction on the bottle (5ml to 1 litre of water). Put 10% of the made up solution in your pet’s water bowl then add clean water to make up the rest in the bowl to dilute the product further. Put the left over healthymouth™ made up solution in the fridge so that you don’t waste it.
- Day 2 – Put 20% of the made up healthymouth™ solution in your pet’s water bowl then add clean water to make up the rest in the bowl to dilute the product further.
- Day 3 - Put 50% of the made up healthymouth™ solution in your pet’s water bowl then add clean water to make up the rest in the bowl to dilute the product further.
- Day 4 - Put 75% of the made up healthymouth™ solution in your pet’s water bowl then add clean water to make up the rest in the bowl to dilute the product further.
- Day 5 - Put 100% of the made up healthymouth™ solution in your pet’s water bowl and don’t add any additional water to it. And just continue giving the normal dose daily to prevent plaque accumulation.
If your pet does develop mild diarrhoea and vomiting even with gradual introduction, please consult your local veterinarian.

We want owners to understand that bad breath in dogs commonly referred to as "doggy breath" is not normal. It is one of the first, and most obvious signs, as it is in humans, that there is bacteria in the mouth which if not removed will lead to infection. Unlike other dental care products on the market advertising "will freshen breath" HealthymouthTM contains no breath masker which would only serve to hide an unhealthy mouth. Instead, healthymouthTM fights bad breath at its source. If your dog has bad breath, we want you to know it and to take your dog to your veterinarian for a dental examination and teeth cleaning.
What if my pet won’t drink healthymouth™ when I introduce it?
