Last week I was barking about dog dental health since February is Dental Health Month. I realize all dogs are not going to be getting their teeth brushed, but another easy way to prevent dental disease and keep a dog’s teeth healthy, is to give a dog dental chews.
Your local PetsMart™ is an ideal place to shop for all your dog’s dental needs. They have a wide selection of dental chews – GREENIES®, Milk-Bone® Brushing Chews, WHIMZEES™, Authority®, to name just a few. Did you know over 80% of dogs in this country have some form of dental disease by the time they are three years old? If a dog doesn’t get its teeth cleaned, bacteria starts to build up in the mouth, and on the teeth causing tartar and plaque. If this is not removed it can start to damage the gums which can lead to teeth needing to be removed or in serious cases other health problems as serious as heart disease. PetMD has a nice article on the importance of proper dental care which is worth reading. It’s never too late to start caring for your dog’s teeth.
Recently, I headed over to my nearest PetsMart store to get some dental chews for my sisters and I. We all enjoy chomping on GREENIES. GREENIES not only fight the build up of tartar and plaque, they freshen our breath (making us more kissable) and help keep our teeth and gums healthy.
I found out GREENIES are available in many varieties such as Weight Management Dental Chews, GREENIES SENIOR® Dental Chews as well as the correct size for every dog, from TEENIE® to Jumbo. I sniffed out the entire selection before deciding which package to purchase.
My sisters and I enjoy our GREENIES in the evening when we are hanging out relaxing after a fun filled day, a sort of, bedtime snack. GREENIES are low in fat and are nutritionally complete for adult dogs. Interestingly, a 28 day study found dogs receiving one GREENIES Dental Chew per day averaged 60% less tartar, 33% less plaque, had 80% healthier gums! Amazing results!
