We are all about clean teeth and gums in this house, even more so now that Penny has had a recent cleaning. Anything that I can do to help maintain her pearly whites is fine by me, even if that means using dog treats that will fight plaque and tarter buildup.
Kong Dental Chews are supposed to do just that; fight plaque and tarter buildup, and inhibiting bacterial growth to reduce chances of gum disease. There are three different Chews to choose from all offering something slightly different from one another.
- Chicken Dental Chews are their basic treats that inhibit bacterial growth and reducing gum disease. This vitamin-enriched chew is made with Real Chicken and healthy, human-grade ingredients.
- Dental Chews Calcium is a treat enriched with extra calcium that also helps to fight plaque and tarter buildup.
- Fresh Breath Dental Chews have added Parsley and Alfalfa, which are natural sources of breath freshening Chlorophyll.
All of these treats are wheat, corn, and soy free. They do not contain any artificial colors, flavors, or byproducts. They are naturally preserved and contain STAY-C®: a patent-protected, bio-available form of Vitamin C. These treats are available in a variety of sizes and are proudly made in the USA. To get a full list of their ingredients you can visit their website and see what is included in each treat.
All three chews were a big hit with the dogs! The chew does have a strong smell to it, but it is otherwise very firm and does not rub off into your hands. The treat roughly measures around 2” in length which fits perfectly into a small Kong toy. Since Penny can swallow things quite quickly, I felt more at ease breaking up the chew into smaller pieces, and by breaking I mean using my strong kitchen scissors to do the job. It took her quite a while to consume the treat; as well it did with Luna too.
Dental Chews are available in PetSmart and Petco as well as select Independent pet store retailers nationwide. Pricing ranges from $14.99-16.99. You can get to know more about the Kong Company by visiting their social networks.
