Do dental chews and bones really clean your dog’s teeth?

While certain dental chews and bones contribute to plaque buildup, others provide a simple and delicious solution to keeping your dog’s teeth clean!

Have you ever tried brushing your dog’s teeth? Unless he has the patience of a saint, it’s easier said than done. But according to the American Veterinary Medical Association, “dental health is a very important part of a pet’s overall health, and dental problems can cause other health problems.” Further, “Periodontal disease is the most common dental condition in dogs and cats – by the time a pet is three years old, he or she will very likely have some early evidence of periodontal disease, which will worsen as the pet grows older if effective preventative measures aren’t taken.” In other words – keeping your pet’s teeth clean might be a hassle, but it’s necessary.

An easier way to clean his teeth

If your dog won’t tolerate the toothbrush on a regular basis, it might be time to introduce a simpler solution. Luckily, bristles aren’t the only way to keep his teeth clean – dental chews and bones also do the trick. They key is to invest in a brand that’s worth its salt. If the product you give your dog contains sugar or cheap fillers, it’ll end up doing more harm than good.

Instead, look for a dental chew or bone made with ingredients known to support dental hygiene. SwedenCare USA offers the only dental bites and bones on the market that contain PlaqueOff™, a 100% natural and environmentally sustainable kelp ingredient that helps promote superior dental health.

As the adage goes – an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. When it comes to your pet’s dental health, this couldn’t be more accurate. “Concerned dog and cat lovers can head off dental issues long before they develop if they can prevent tartar and plaque from building up in the first place,” says Scott Reinhardt, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at SwedenCare USA. “A great way to easily decrease and help to prevent plaque buildup is to make dental care an enjoyable part of your pet’s daily routine – and high-quality bites and bones do just that!”

Dental chews and bones are transforming the longstanding pet vs. pet parent struggle. They deliver plaque prevention in the form of a treat that is so tasty, dogs will willingly gobble them up!
