Although A. nodosum is widely used in companion animal products for its efficacy in improving oral hygiene, its influence on foodstuff palatability is unclear. Isidori et al (2018) investigated the effect of A. nodosum on extruded dog food palatability using the split-plate test. The study found there was a reduced food intake in dogs (P<0.001) when their diet contains 1% A. nodosum, suggesting that A. nodosum has an inhibiting and dose-dependent effect on the dogs dry matter intake. Data also indicate that negative effects exerted by A. nodosum on palatability are primarily related to gustatory factors rather than to olfactory stimuli. Isidori’s study suggests palatability is an issue when adding A. nodosum into dog foods. Vetnex has developed a variety of A. nodosum dental products to improve the palatability of this seaweed including flavoured powders (salmon, kangaroo) and tasty chews (salmon, beef liver).
Vetnex Plaque Control natural dental care range is a 100% natural product made from organic seaweed Ascophyllum nodosum, which is high in nutrition and has a natural defensive mechanism against dental plaque, tartar and bad breath. It is orally ingested and works systematically.

Vetnex Plaque Control Dental Chew (Beef Liver) is made of the dental seaweed A. nodosum with added real Australian beef liver, the product is an all-natural tasty chew which is convenient and enjoyable for dogs and cats. The product can be given as a daily treat, it is a great alternative solution when your pet is not into powder form of dental products or if you simply like to have an easy-go feeding of your pets. It is a great choice for picky pets and busy owners. The product can be used individually or rotationally together with other Vetnex Plaque Control dental products.
