OSCAR Featured Ingredient: Stay Clean (R)

Dental Health in Cats

It has long been reported that around 70% of cats develop dental disease by the time they are three years old. Research in the USA* last year suggests that figure is closer to 80%. This is not surprising. Cleaning cats teeth can be a tricky job, especially if not introduced at a young age. To help combat this problem and reduce dental disease in our feline friends, OSCAR have added a special ingredient called Stay Clean to our Adult and Adult Care cat foods.

Some Facts About Stay Clean

We asked our nutritonal boffins a few questions about Stay Clean and how it plays a key role in caring for your pet cats' teeth

1) What is Stay Clean?

Stay Clean is a specialised source of vitamin C which is added to the OSCAR kibble as a fine powder. This is activated when your cat breaks down the kibble in its mouth. The Stay Clean ingredient acts with the cat's saliva to help remove tartar and plaque build up.

2) How does Stay Clean improve dental hygiene in cats?

Whilst it is generally accepted that the most effective home care method to minimise dental plaque is by brushing the teeth using pet toothpaste, additional dental support can be gained from cleverly designed nutritional pet products such as Oscar’s Adult and Adult Care cat food range with added Stay Clean. Studies have shown that Stay Clean helps to reduce the development of dental plaque and the formation of tartar.

3) Why is Stay Clean beneficial as a source of vitamin C?

Vitamin C is also an antioxidant. Antioxidants help to protect cells and tissues against damage from free radicals and are important for the normal function of the immune system too.
