What determines if a product qualifies for the seal?

VOHC awards the Seal in two claim categories: Helps Control Plaque, and Helps Control Tartar. If a submission requests review for both claims, separate data sets and analysis summaries are required for each claim, though data for both claims can be collected during the same trial.

What is the value of the seal?
Products with the VOHC seal not only benefit your pet’s health and have a proven record for better oral care, but they also have statistically significant benefits compared to pets in a clinical trial that received no VOHC product.  Research that supports the claim on the package is important.
