Q & A

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding OraFresh™ Dental Granules for Cats & Dogs, including answers from our team.

How much brewers yeast is in this?


Hi I have two dogs who are genetically predisposed to urate crystals and formation of bladder stones. They should avoid things high in purine to reduce risk of forming stones. Brewers yeast is very high in purine is this only in a small quantity and would it have any effect on my dogs risk of forming stones. They weight 30kg and are Dalmatians.

  • VioVet Staff

The amount of Brewers yeast you will give when administering the supplement compared to the overall diet will be very small and so this is unlikely to cause any issues. However we cannot guarantee this. If your dog has a condition that needs nutritionally managing then it is advised to only giving a supplement alongside this if 100% necessary. In your case it would be advised to brush your dog's teeth using a dental toothpaste instead, or consider the use of chew toys. Our blog 'Why do vets care about our pets teeth?' has a useful guide on dental care.

Gluten free


Hi my cocker spaniel is gluten intolerant, is this a suitable product for her? Thanks

  • VioVet Staff

The Brewers Yeast within this product can contain gluten and so it is advised to avoid this if your dog is gluten intolerant.

Split between meals?


My cats are allowed 1 scoop of this a day. Do I split it between their AM and PM wet meals or put it all in one (thinking then it's like brushing their teeth once a day with a full scoop which isn't as diluted as a half scoop on each meal). Thank you

  • VioVet Staff

These granules aim to reduce bacterial load in the mouth which is the cause of plaque build up. They can be split into twice daily feeds or given in one, whichever is easier.

Diabetic dog


My dog is diabetic, will this effect her Blood Glucose at all?

  • VioVet Staff

These granules do not contain high sugar ingredients, however some of the ingredients could impact blood sugar levels. This effect is likely to be tiny and probably not noticeable. If your dog is being treated or stabilised for diabetes though then it is best to run any changes to the diet, including supplements, past your vet first.

Peppermint oil is toxic to cats so how can this be suitable?


I was keen to find a cheaper alternative to PlaqueOff for cats, but on seeing this version contains peppermint oil, which is toxic to cats, I'm flabbergasted!

  • VioVet Staff

Thank you for query. Peppermint oil (CAS 8006-90-4) is permitted for use in animal feed as per the EU Feed Additive Register
(Annex I).
The peppermint oil is added at a minute level, purely functioning to help freshen the pet’s breath. We are conscious of
limiting its use to negligible levels
(0.1%).With the recommended dosage of 1 scoop for cats, this delivers only 0.5mg(0.05%)per scoop.

Safe for kitten?

Agnès Tyburn

I've seen that peppermint essential oil is toxic to cat. Is this product safe to use on my 4 months old kitten?

  • VioVet Staff

This product is safe for use in kittens older than 12 weeks (3 months) of age. Peppermint oil can be toxic to cats but only in very high levels, if you follow the doseage on the packaging you will be well within safe limits.

Bigger amounts

Jason Lindsay

Does this come in bigger amounts. We have two dogs over 40kg and this little pot will barely last a month 🤪

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Jason,

I'm afraid it doesn't come in larger sizes at the moment but we will look into this for the future! We try to have regular deals across our VioVet ranges so keep an eye out (sometimes multibuy on this range in particular)! :-)

Mixed or not?

anna griffiths

Do these granules have to actually contact the teeth to work? … I give BARF supplements hidden in ham slices, or my dogs won't eat it, can the granules be given this way also and still work?

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Anna,

It's unlikely they'll get much benefit if the powder is wrapped in ham and swallowed quickly - ideally it needs to be sprinkled on food so that with each mouthful, the granules are spread around the mouth as they chew. The ingredients can then coat the mouth and help reduce bad bacteria build up.

For dogs really sensitive to changes to smell/flavour, I'd recommend starting with a small pinch, and slowly building up to the number of scoops needed over a couple of weeks. I was worried my fussy terrier would object to it but he eats it happily :-)

Alternatively, our OraFresh Oral Care Solution can be added to drinking water, or the tasty poultry flavoured OraFresh Oral Hygiene Paste can be added to food/licked off a finger or rubbed onto teeth and gums with a finger or even used with a toothbrush if you prefer.

I hope you find something to best suit your dogs!

Kind regards,

Plaque Off and/or OraFresh


  • VioVet customer since 2013
  • From: Suffolk, United Kingdom

I have been giving my dog Plaque Off and now I have OraFresh, should I give both to her? Or are they exactly the same product except for the addition of peppermint etc to OraFresh? She also has Plaque Off dental care bones and I don't want to overdo anything........Thank you

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Enaj,

Thank you for your question,

As the OraFresh & Plaque Off granules are so similar, there is most likely no benefit to using both products together, however we would encourage offering dental chews such as the Plaque Off bones as these provide an extra way to help mechanically clean the teeth when chewing on them!

I hope this helps.
