Nolvadent Indications

To assist in the daily maintenance of a healthy and pleasant smelling mouth in dogs and cats through the removal of food particles and other debris from the teeth and gum line.

INSTRUCTIONS: Apply Nolvadent either as an oral rinse or with a toothbrush.

Oral Rinse: Holding the animal’s head steady with one hand, gently insert the applicator inside the corner of the mouth and apply a small amount of Nolvadent between the teeth and side of the mouth. Massage the mouth over the teeth to work Nolvadent over the surface of the teeth. Repeat on the opposite side of the mouth so that the gum surfaces are thoroughly wet on both sides of the mouth.

Tooth Brushing: Place a small amount of Nolvadent in a clean dish or cup. Holding the animal’s head steady with one hand, dip the toothbrush into the solution and carefully brush the teeth with a gentle motion. Re-wet the brush with Nolvadent as needed.

SPECIAL NOTE: Use of Nolvadent should not be considered a substitute for sound veterinary dental treatment. This product should be used under the direction of a veterinarian who can advise on a complete oral health program.

Published literature has reported some staining of teeth surfaces after prolonged usage of rinses containing chlorhexidine. Build up of stain can be prevented by applying the solution with a toothbrush.

Store at controlled room temperature 15° to 30°C (59° to 86°F). PROTECT FROM FREEZING.
