Dogs suffer from tooth decay and gum disease, just like we do. We all know that tartar buildup can lead to gum disease in our own mouths, but it is true for our canine companions, too. That’s why we use tartar control toothpaste, right. But what’s a dog to do? How about a treat that helps your dog’s dental health!
A really nice guy over at Hartz sent over a box of their new Crunch n’ Clean dog treats and asked us to give a them a try. Well, have our dogs give them a try. So we did. Have our dogs try them that is.
These treats are special in that they have something called DentaShieldTM in them. Invented by researchers at Indiana University’s School of Dentistry, this ingredient coats your dog’s teeth and acts as a barrier which helps block new tartar formation. Learn more about it here in this video:
So did our dogs like the treats?
They did. In fact, they loved ’em.
But in all fairness, they didn’t seem to be impressed to learn they were also blocking tartar and fighting gum disease.
To be perfectly honest, I’m not qualified in doggie dental care to tell the difference as far as tartar control – but I can tell you her breath smells a whole lot better.
We gave one of the treats to a Rottweiler, too, but it was long gone before we could snap a picture!
If your dog has bad breath or you just want to help keep your canine companion’s dental health in check, you might want to give Crunch ‘n Clean a try. Well, let your dog give them a try.
