#Science Diet Oral Care for Dogs has met the VOHC testing standard and been awarded the VOHC Seal in the Plaque and Tartar categories. The product packaging in early 2014 does not carry the Seal because of a delay on VOHC's part in completing review of a change in the product formulation that does not affect the dental efficacy of the product.

Toothbrush
A tooth brush compliant with the American Dental Association standard ISO 20126:2005 was used in dogs in a trial conducted according to VOHC protocols. A child-sized brush with soft bristles and a flat profile head was used. The ADA standard ensures that the bristles have rounded tips to avoid damaging the gums. Brushes that meet this standard are marketed by several manufactuers. Details on the recommended brushing technique, as used in the VOHC trials, are available by clicking VOHC Brushing Protocol.
