In a word--no.
When we go to the vet, she usually mentions dental care--after all, she's not only the dogs' doctor, but also their dentist. In his home before we adopted him, Ike ate through a door in order to get to a dog in heat and broke off most of his teeth. And Kelly is 13 years old and and has some tartar buildup. But still, I'm not great at keeping their teeth brushed. When I come at them with a toothbrush, they run the other way. Try prying their mouths open and scrubbing those teeth. No woofin' way. So I was excited to be asked to check out the new #MilkBone® Brushing Chews.
Milk-Bone® Brushing Chews TM are bone-shaped chews, covered with nubs and ridges that are designed to clean like bristles on a toothbrush. The bone has a unique 75 degree twist design that helps dogs maneuver the chew to clean down to the gum line, including hard-to-reach back teeth.
Kelly was my taste-tester for this product.
|Kelly, which would you rather have, a toothbrush or Milk-Bone Brushing Chews?|
|Yes! The Brushing Chews!|
She excitedly accepted the treat and immediately went to work brushing---uh, chewing. I was surprised at how long the treat kept her busy, too. Much longer than most other chewy biscuits. Knowing that she enjoys the taste and chewing experience (much more than the struggle with the toothbrush), and that it is also helping to keep her teeth healthy, I can feel good about offering her this treat.
Milk-Bone® Brushing Chews (TM) are clinically proven to reduce: tartar build-up. They come in mini, small/medium, and large. Kelly sampled the small/medium size.
If you want to try them for yourself, they're easy to find--available wherever Milk-Bone® products are sold. And the suggested retail price is between $4 and $5 per box.
