Florida-based biopharmaceutical company Oragenics, Inc. (OTCBB: ORNI) (www.oragenics.com
) has announced that its oral care probiotic for cats and dogs, Teddy’s Pride® (www.teddyspride.com
), will now be distributed to veterinarians in Korea through Vetcom Korea, Inc on a non-exclusive basis.
“We are excited about this opportunity to bring Teddy’s Pride® to Korea,” said Gerry David, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing for Oragenics. “Vetcom Korea is a well recognized and established distributor for pet products in the veterinarian industry.”
“I am extremely selective in choosing products to offer to our pet supplier network,” said Charles C. S. Kim, DVM. “Oragenics’ focus on quality, all-natural products made Teddy’s Pride® an excellent fit for the Korean market. We’re proud to be associated with Oragenics in this on-going relationship.”
ProBiora3®, the active ingredient in Oragenics' probiotic products, naturally supports gum and tooth health while freshening breath and whitening teeth. ProBiora3® technology was developed by Oragenics' Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Jeffrey 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. ProBiora3® contains three strains of beneficial bacteria that help maintain a healthy microbial balance in the mouth. It is 100% natural and is made in the USA in an FDA-registered and GMP-certified facility.
