Logic Dental Hygiene
Logic Orozyme Dental Chews are a new innovation in dental hygiene. Enzymes combined with chewing actively removes plaque from teeth and gums. Logic chews are extremely palatable beef and pork rawhide chews for dogs which, as well as helping with the mechanical removal of plaque, are sprayed with the Logic antibacterial enzymes and agents.
Active ingredients: amylase, glucoamylase, glucose oxidase, lactoperoxidase, potassium thiocyanate, superoxide dismutase, Lysozyme, Lactoferrine, Flavouring.
Use Logic Orozyme Dental Chews to help to prevent plaque build up, long term gum disease, tooth loss, pain and associated weight loss and poor quality of life. Logic Orozyme chew complement the action of logic oral hygiene gel but can be used alone.

A dental hygiene product in the form of an highly palatable oral hygiene gel (for dogs and cats) and chews (for dogs)
Logic oral hygiene gel works by containing multiple enzymes to help boost and complement this natural enzyme system
Logic orozyme chew are based on the same multi-enzyme complex as Logic oral hygiene gel. This complex is stimulated by the chewing action.
Both presentations have a pleasant malt taste to help ensure
Enzyme complex: amylase, glucoamylase, glucose oxidase, potassium thiocyanate, lactoferrine, lactoperoxidase, lysozyme, superoxide dismutase
Both the gel and chews contains a multienzyme complex which supplements and improves the animals own natural salivary system. This patented enzyme formula attacks bacteria in the mouth and helps removes plaque
Mode of Action
Normal saliva is antibacterial due to the lactoperoxidase system. This contains salivary peroxidise (lactoperoxidase), thiocyanate (SCN-) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). These react together to form hypothiocyate, a powerful oxidising ion which has an inhibitory effect against oral bacteria, including common species such as Lactobacillus, Streptococcus and Actinomyces. This reduces bacterial count and subsequently inhibits the formation of dental plaque and tartar.
The actions of the various ingredients are summarised below:
- Amylase – not present in saliva, acts on starch to produce glucose
Dental Disease in Dogs and Cats
Studies have shown that dental disease is present in over 89% of dogs and 70% of cats over the age of three. The disease usually develops in the following stages:
- Gingivitis – redness of the gums, especially along the gum margin
- Bad breath – caused by the build of millions of bacteria within the mouth
- Plaque – a creamy layer on the surface of the tooth that is composed of food debris and bacteria
- Calculus – formed from the hardening of plaque and has a rough brown appearance
As dental disease progresses, the ligaments holding the teeth to the gums and the underlying bone can also become destroyed resulting in loose teeth, which may require extraction by your veterinary surgeon. Bacteria within the mouth can also enter the bloodstream and cause damage to other organs in the body, for example the heart, kidney and liver.
If there is a lot of disease within the mouth and/or the teeth are loose then professional cleaning by your veterinary surgeon will be required. However, even after having a dental, plaque will start building up within hours and therefore homecare is essential in order to help prevent this from occurring.
Logic® Oral Hygiene Gel and Logic® Chews are leading veterinary dental products which attack bacteria in the mouth thanks to their advanced formulation of six antibacterial enzymes and two antibacterial agents, which reduce bad breath and the build up of calculus.
Logic® Oral Hygiene Gel for dogs and cats has an extremely palatable malt taste and can be administered daily onto the teeth with a toothbrush or rubbed onto the gums with a finger. Alternatively, in the cat, it can be applied onto the paw for your cat to lick off. In addition to the antibacterial agents, mild abrasives help to break down existing plaque and a surfactant ensures the gel sticks to the teeth.
Logic® Chews are extremely palatable beef and pork rawhide chews for dogs which, as well as helping with the mechanical removal of plaque, are sprayed with the Logic antibacterial enzymes and agents. Logic Chews are available in three sizes; small (for dogs under 10kg), medium (for dogs between 10kg and 30kg) and large (for dogs over 30kg) and should be given once daily.
Logic® Oral Hygiene Gel and Logic® Chews can be used alone or together and, thanks to their advanced veterinary formulation, will destroy bacteria within the mouth, help prevent your pets from developing dental disease (with its painful and harmful consequences) and stop them from getting bad breath!
