Florida-based biopharmaceutical company Oragenics, Inc. (OTCBB: ORNI) (www.oragenics.com) will be exhibiting the company’s Teddy’s Pride oral care probiotics for cats and dogs at the Global Pet Expo, the world’s largest trade show for pet retailers, in Orlando, FL, March 16-18.
ProBiora3®, the active ingredient in Teddy’s Pride, was developed by Oragenics' Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Jeffrey D. Hillman, D.M.D., Ph.D., during more than 25 years of research which began at the Harvard-affiliated Forsyth Institute in Boston and continued at the University of Florida. This technology has only recently become available to the general public in Teddy’s Pride, along with a line of oral care probiotic products for the entire family. The ProBiora3 blend of beneficial bacteria contains three strains of probiotics that help maintain a healthy microbial balance in the mouth. ProBiora3 is made in the USA in an FDA-registered facility. All ProBiora3-containing products are 100% natural.
Teddy’s Pride oral care probiotics are specifically formulated for cats and dogs of all sizes and ages. Teddy’s Pride kills harmful, bad-breath causing bacteria and adds the beneficial bacteria that naturally thrive in the mouth. This innovative new oral care product naturally freshens pets’ breath while gently and naturally whitening teeth.
According to the American Pet Product Association, the pet industry is one of the few that has consistently experienced strong growth for the past several years. Teddy’s Pride is an innovative addition to the $47 billion dollar pet industry. It is a convenient, reliable and affordable oral care product for the 71.4 million US households that own a pet.
“The Global Pet Expo is a wonderful place to meet with fellow American Pet Products Association members and pet industry experts, “ said Gerry David, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing for Oragenics. “Attracting thousands of pet professionals from all over the world, Global Pet Expo is an ideal place to exhibit this unique product for dogs and cats.”
