Many cat owners think that their feline friends are able to take care of 100% of their grooming needs on their own. While it is true that cats groom themselves, there are many instances where cats need regular grooming done by you or a grooming professional. Some cats require more grooming than others; our fluffiest friends and senior kitties generally have a higher grooming requirement. No matter whether your cat is a long, short, or hairless breed- she will require some form of grooming within her life.

Cat saying to a dog: "Ooooo somebody needs a PlaqClnz appointment!"

Zoom Zoom Groom is implementing a new advanced dental program called Plaq Clnz!

Plaq Clnz is a Zinc-based oral health care product that treats and helps prevent bad breath, plaque, tartar and gingivitis. Used regularly, it keeps pets’ breath fresh and protects against the early stages of periodontal disease.
 
 

Why should you be concerned with your pet’s oral health?

Ongoing research shows the link between oral health and overall health. Keeping your pet’s teeth and gums healthy allows them to eat normally, keeps their breath fresh and can add up to five healthy years to your pet’s life.

 

Pet bad breath is often overlooked, but it’s actually one of the first signs of oral disease:

 

“At any one time, 80% of all dogs and 70% of all cats show signs of dental and oral health diseases. Regular dental care can add as much as five years to a pet’s life.”
— American Veterinary Dental Society

 

PlaqClnz eliminates pet’s bad breath, protects oral health and helps add up to five healthy years to your pet’s life.
