Dog Dental Chews Buyer's Guide


Share this  

Caring your dog's dental health is one of the most important things you can do as a responsible pet owner. Dental disease caused by poor oral hygiene can lead to pain, infections, tooth loss, and problems throughout your pet's body.

Routine dental cleanings with your veterinarian along with daily tooth brushing are the best ways to keep your pet’s mouth healthy. But sometimes brushing a dog’s teeth is impractical. When this is the case, dental chews can play a role in your pet's dental hygiene regimen. These are edible treats or rawhide chews that have been formulated in such a way as to help keep plaque and tartar from building up on a dog’s teeth. The table below will allow you to compare some of the more popular brands of dental treats for dogs.

While there are many treats out there designed to help reduce plaque and tartar in your dog's mouth, only a few have undergone clinical testing to prove their effectiveness. Feel free to try multiple products until you find one both you and your dog are happy with.
