I love my dog Milo. I really do. But sometimes his breath is rank! He's not a particularly licky boy, thank goodness, but occasionally he will plant a kiss on your face and it's necessary to hold your breath.
This is why I initially bought Dentastix. My sister is a veterinary nurse and she recommended them. I buy them from Sainsburys in jumbo boxes which contain four packets of seven Dentastix for £5.99 and because he is a Jack Russell, I find that the small size is ideal.
These chewy sticks are ridged to help clean the dogs teeth as they chew and are flavoured with chicken or beef. They are made by Pedigree, who claim that they reduce tartar build-up by 80%, which is great news since cleaning Milo's teeth with his little doggy toothbrush is really tricky. He just licks all the meaty flavoured toothpaste off and bites down on the brush until I give up, but he will happily chew on one of these sticks. My sister warned me only to give Milo one a day as they are high in calories, so I tend to wait until he has been for his daytime walkies and then, because he is tired it takes him a little longer to get through it.
I find these really useful, Milo's teeth remain pearly white and his breath is improved after eating one. I feel like I'm helping to keep his teeth and gums healthy, so I don't mind the extra cost and Milo just thinks he is getting a tasty treat, which makes him love me even more. Toothy grins all round!
Summary: Man's best friend will love them.
