What is C.E.T. Oral Hygiene Rinse?

C.E.T. Rinse is a unique formulation of Chlorhexidine Gluconate and other ingredients to help fight plaque, maintain oral health, and freshen breath. It may be used with or without brushing. Available in a unique point-and-squeeze applicator bottle.
For: Cats and Dogs
 
Benefits:
Effectively treats gum inflammation and bleeding
No reported side effects

How it works:
Chlorhexidine Gluconate is an antiseptic used in mouth rinses to aid in reducing inflammation and bleeding of the gums.

Cautions:
When inflammation and/or bleeding subside, C.E.T. 0.12% Chlorhexidine Rinse should be discontinued and a regular home dental care program of brushing with animal toothpaste should begin.


More Information:
Brand Name
C.E.T. 0.12% Chlorhexidine Rinse (Virbac)

Active Ingredient(s):
Chlorhexidine gluconate (0.12%)

What is this product used for:
C.E.T. 0.12% Chlorhexidine Rinse is for use on dogs and cats for irrigation of the oral cavity before, during, and immediately after any dental procedure.

Availability:
C.E.T. 0.12% Chlorhexidine Rinse is a non-prescription (OTC) product.

How this product should be used:
For best results, use an applicator such as a soft-bristled toothbrush. When using an applicator, place a small amount of the rinse in a container. Gently hold your pet's head and dip the toothbrush or other applicator in the rinse. Carefully brush your pet's teeth in a gentle, circular motion. Re-moisten the applicator as needed. When used as a rinse without the applicator, place the spout inside the corner of the mouth, slightly inside the cheek. Gently squeeze the bottle to place a small amount of the rinse between the cheek and gums. Massage the mouth to work the rinse over the teeth. Repeat this procedure on the other side of the mouth.

What are the side effects:
There are no reported side effects.

What special precautions are there:
When gingival inflammation and bleeding subside, C.E.T. 0.12% Chlorhexidine Rinse should be discontinued and a regular home dental care program of brushing with animal toothpaste should begin. Reversible teeth staining has been reported with prolonged use of this product. Keep out of the eyes and ears. This product is for veterinary use only.

In the event of an overdose:
Contact your veterinarian or veterinary emergency room.

How should I store this product:
Store this product at controlled room temperature of 59°-86°F. Keep out of the reach of children.

Directions:

C.E.T. 0.12% Chlorhexidine Rinse can be used in dogs and cats to rinse the mouth before, during, and immediately after any dental procedure.
Keep out of the eyes and ears.

Tip: When inflammation of the gums and bleeding subside, discontinue using C.E.T. 0.12% Chlorhexidine Rinse.

Perodontal diseasw CET rinse review: Periodontal disease affects almost 90 percent of adult dogs and cats, and if untreated, this can lead to not only painful mouths and tooth loss but also secondary infections that can get into the blood stream and affect the heart, liver, kidneys and lungs. While many pets have significant tartar on their teeth as part of this condition, many will also have red and swollen gums indicating gingivitis. So not only s it important to brush our pets teeth regularly with a great product like the CET toothpaste, I will often first start my patients on their dental program with use of this highly effective chlorihexidine based oral rinse to help soothe gum inflammation and kill harmful bacteria involved in plague buildup and progressive periodontal disease. I have never seen this product stain my patients' teeth as it is reported in the literature, but have on occasion seen rare allergic reactions/irritations and mild ulcers on the inside cheeks. I have also seen occasional pets object to the taste of the rinse. However given the rarity of these reactions and the importance of good preventative oral hygiene at home, I highly recommend this product in conjunction with the CET toothpaste. The overall rating is 4. The effectiveness is 4 and the taste is a 3.5. 08/08/2008
Must Taste Terrible I have brushed my Dane's teeth since he was young with an Oral-B electric toothbrush and CET poultry-flavor toothpaste, and he has never hesitated to come when I call him for his nightly brushing. This all changed after using the CET chlorhexidine rinse just two nights. When I called him on the third night to get his teeth brushed, he hurried downstairs with his tail tucked. Wouldn't you know, I bought two bottles! 12/16/2012
works ok My dog hates it, but i think it helps his breath smell better. I prefer the wipes. 12/13/2011
stress free dental care The C.E.T. rinse is the best product for my Yorkie's (Kieran)dental care. It is easy to use and keeps his teeth clean and the whitest I've seen in years. Great product at the best price in the market. 11/21/2011
Better than ordinary This is the product that I began using 10, to 20 years ago. It looks different now, and may have had another name, but the ingredients were the same. Back then, as now, it was a Vet that recomended it, and every Vet I've had since is recomending it. It's the zinc. That's what my first Vet liked about it. It's even better if you soak a tooth brush in it, and then brush your dogs teeth. Won't remove any plaque your dog already has, but like people, it will pervent a lot of it. 04/29/2011

Answer: 
This is NOT the Oral Hygiene Rinse, which is what you are calling it on your "product information" section! The Oral Hygiene Rinse is meant for home care, and the Chlorhexidine Rinse is NOT recommended for home care!

Answer: 
These products may not be exactly the same although may have the same active ingredient. To be sure, speak to your veterinarian to see if this product is comparable and can be substituted for the one provided by your clinic.

Answer: 
It should not harm your cat is some is swallowed. I suggest you use an applicator such as a soft-bristled toothbrush. Place a small amount of the rinse in a container. Gently hold your pet's head and dip the toothbrush or other applicator in the rinse. Carefully brush your pet's teeth in a gentle, circular motion. Re-moisten the applicator as needed. This way your cat will not ingest much at all.

Answer: 
If your dog has bleeding gums, then you should have your pet examined by a veterinarian. Bleeding gums are usually a sign of advanced gum disease.

Answer: 
Hi, great question. You should discontinue using the C.E.T. Chlorhexidine Rinse and use a dog toothbrush and toothpaste as soon as the bleeding subsides.

Answer: 
Hello Mott2,
We hope you and your pet are doing well today. Unfortunately you can use the C.E.T.Chlorhexidine Rinse topically. Nor can you mixe it in with a shampoo. It will not be effective. You can bathe your pet in a mild Oatmeal shampoo. Then you can use the Nolvasan Skin & Wound Cleanser right after on the wounds. Please see link below for product details and benfits.
