Best I Have Tried So Far
As far as the smell goes, this wasn’t bad at all. In fact, not only did it improve her breath, but there was a noticeable reduction in plaque. I didn’t expect the treats to actually accomplish this, and was glad to see how well they worked.
All natural and healthy.
Unfortunately, the treats didn’t last long. She finished each one in just a few minutes. I suppose I shouldn’t expect treats like this to last too long (hence, the five stars), but it would be nice if they did.
My Dogs Were Not Very Enthused
The treats are a little messy, especially near the end. My dogs left tiny crumbs on the floor, so that’s something to watch out for. They’re a good size, perfect for medium build dogs.
Quite the hit!!
These bones are similar to Denta Bones in style, but they have much better ingredients. I’ve given Haley natural dental bones before, and these have a similar smell. I’m not sure if it’s the rosemary or what other ingredient.
I am very impressed and pleased with these bones. They seem to keep the dogs busy for a while longer than denta bones, so that is definitely a good thing! I will be purchasing these for Haley in the future. I doubt I would give her one every day because of the calories, but maybe she will get them as a special treat a couple times a week.
Short life, strong odor
Dog Loves It and Perfect Size
My dog loves them
Ok, not great
Fairly safe dog chew-treats
Benny likes it. But why Nutraceuticals in Dog Treats?
Unfortunately, I could not give them to our other dog, a beagle mix. He tends to get seizures after he consumes chicken, and since these contain natural chicken flavor, I did not risk giving him these.
I received these treats as a sample. I would not bother to purchase them because of the cost plus the fact that only one of my pets can eat them.
I wonder if the price would be lower if designer nutrients were left out. I mean, do dogs naturally want green tea extract? I realize that studies are being done on possible benefits of this substance, but throwing some in dog treats is not the same as having a vet prescribe it. When I searched the web for research on canine green tea extract, one of the first that came up reported that some beagles died in a study using high doses of the extract, so now I feel that caution may be advisable. Of course, your dog would have to eat an awful lot of these treats to get enough of it to suffer any harm; a single treat is almost certainly okay.
Nutraceuticals have become trendy because marketers know that people are aware that certain nutrients have impressive health benefits. And including these nutrients give manufacturers a reason to charge more. You may want to ask your vet’s opinion before paying extra for designer treats.
4 of 5 Dogs Approve
+4: Number of dogs liked
+0: Smell (some humans and dogs liked, others didn’t)
So, these chews get a score of two (2) given that all dogs in the house love bully sticks which provide much longer chewing enjoyment at a lower cost.
Ok but a bit smelly
Nice Dog Treat – The Dog Liked It
One thing I want to point out is the size of these treats – they are a lot bigger than a greenie and other similar pet dental treats, as well as a lot tougher which will take them longer to chew. I have a small dog that weighs a little over ten pounds, so I broke this one in half which seemed like enough for him.
See my tongue-in-cheek comment above about not tasting them, but I do believe there is a bit of salt in these, as a few hours after eating them he was extremely thirsty.
Overall, this appears to be a good treat for your dog – time will tell if it helps his teeth!
Well Worth It!
another great treat and it really works…
Treats with a plus
Too Big for the Chihuahua but Perfect for My Medium Sized Dog
These chew treats last but not one of our pup’s favorites.
My dog found them really palatable and though I don’t think I used them long enough to notice a difference in his breath or with his teeth – a dental chew is no good if the dog wont eat it.
My Chiweenie loved them! Slight reprieve from bad breath.
My yorkie, on the other hand, didn’t really care too much for these treats. He’d tried them only because the other dog was enjoying it so much, but never cared for them much.
From an owner’s point of view, I do like the good ingredients these chew treats have. They don’t get sticky, they are not messy, and they smell ok. I would gladly buy these again seeing how much my chiweenie enjoyed them.
My dog loved them!
Joy-Joy Says Order Some More Please!!!!
The dog loves them and they probably help his teeth
Of course, when we ask him if his teeth feel cleaner, he doesn’t say a lot, and a visual inspection doesn’t tell us a lot. But with the way he works at these, we’re certain it’s doing something worthwhile.
We’ve had other rawhide-like treats, and the dog abandons them after a while. Not so with these.
We also liked the packaging, which was attractive, reseals nicely, and isn’t extravagant or wasteful.
The only thing we recommend you watch out for is to get a large enough treat size. We had a package of the “medium” size and for our dog, about 60 pounds, a larger size would have been better.
Highly recommended — by the dog as well as us.
Doggies love these
They love these, but it was hard to tell if this cleaned there teeth. As I just had my
dogs teeth cleaned.
These Dental Chews are not something to keep your dogs buzy chewing on these, as they are soft, and they eat them in a short time.
The ingredients are healthy:
Brown rice flour, Organic quinoa flour,vegtable glycerin, water, pea flour, tapioca starch, carrageenan, calcium carbonate, natural chicken flavor, carrots, apples , chia seed, parsley, L-ascorbyl-2polyphosphate, (source of vitamin C), rosemary, peppermint, vanilla, zinc gluconate, green tea extract (decaffeinated) mixed tocopherols (preservative).
The medium is For 20 to 30 lbs dogs..3 to 4 a week.
I would not give 3 or 4 of these to my dogs a weeks. I do not think its nessasary, and it would be expensive.
I use to give my dogs the Greenies, but some dogs have choked on those. There harder then these are.
since these are softer, I think it would do a better job of cleaning there teeth, and gums,
cause it rubs around there gums and teeth when they bite into it (if that makes sinse!)
I think these are good for there teeth, and gums. Hopefully this will keep there
teeth cleaner, and there gums in better health, with fresher breath.
I would buy these..
Teeth cleaning ability? We were only able to sample 1 bag up front, so I can not comment on how well they would do over time, but can say that they did appear to be soft and chewy and looked like they would clean teeth over a period of weeks. As for her breath? Again, not enough quantity to make a call one way or another, but she did not have what I would consider bad breath.
On a practical level, these things seem to be a bit pricey (as healthy foods tend to be) at about a dollar per… If you believe that your pet could benefit from these for a short period of time, then go ahead and try them. However, if your pet already seems to be in good shape, stick with what you are doing and don’t over do it.
This will not cost the product any stars, as all necessary information is provided for you to review before your purchase and the fact that our Yorkie likes them. In the future, I would buy them again to throw in a bit of variety, but not as an everyday option.
Slowly approached, but definitely enjoyed
The package says “Dental Chews” which normally speaks to an ability to remove tartar or freshen breath. The package states that the product “freshens breath naturally,” so I assume the mint serves as a breath freshener, thus earning the title “dental chew” instead of “treat.”
That said, I’m pleased to know the product is wheat-free and corn-free, as I’m not a fan of feeding my pups either one of those all-too-common ingredients. I was going to give the product four stars because the dogs didn’t jump on them like white on rice, but then I realized that this is a very healthy treat that is a whole lot better for them than most of the stuff that’s out there, and after the slight hesitation, both dogs seemed to enjoy these very much … so five stars it is.
