Eddie observed Pet Dental Health Month with a cleaning! He hates February.
Let’s face it, it’s almost impossible to brush dog’s teeth and the vet insists cleanings are safe, healthy and important for a healthy mouth. Eddie would disagree. I had to drag him into the vet’s office and practically shove him into the kennel. All day, I felt guilty and worried while he was put under and treated. When I picked him up, dazed and confused, I promised him that was the last one.
Nylabone sent us a free box of large NutriDent Complete to review. NutriDent chews are grain free dental chews that freshen breath while helping to reduce tartar. Eddie is usually pretty picky especially when it comes to treats so I was hopeful he would try it. Not only did he readily take it from me, but he came back for more! (Maybe he knows this is his best option!) I liked that the treats were firm but I could still dent them with a fingernail – a trick I learned from the dental specialist after I found Eddie broke a tooth.
Since Eddie had such a great response, we offered some of our friends and neighbors a try. Every dog loved them! Even Spock who earlier turned down a scrambled egg and can of wet food. It took the dogs a few minutes to chew and would crumble apart instead of creating sharp edges. The treats are preservative-free , gluten-free, and have no added salt or sugar. Even better – they are made in the USA. The dogs did not rush to the water bowl like they do after eating other chews. I could give these treats with confidence!
NutriDent Complete is a healthy alternative to brushing that your dog will enjoy. They come in a variety of sizes and flavors, and for around $10 a pack I would recommend giving them a try. I will definitely continue to use NutriDent to keep Eddie’s teeth clean.
