Bare Bones: Clean Teeth Chompers

February is National Pet Dental Health Month! I realize that many of us don't take the time to brush our pet's teeth as often as we should, but there are many great toys that can help a doggie do his part! Hard, rubbery toys with ridges and bumps stimulate gums, clean teeth, and keep him rather busy in the process. Braided floss products remove food debris, reduce plaque and tartar build up, and add in flouride and mint to freshen breath, too.

North and I especially like the Pearly Whites N-Bone dog dental treats. In addition to his love of toys he can chomp on, it contains clove (a natural astringent that kills the bacteria that causes tartar buildup), tri-calcium phosphate to remove tartar during chewing, and calcium carbonate and vitamin D3 to build strong and healthy teeth. Best yet, it still includes peppermint and parsley powder to freshen breath if I don't have any mints on hand. To see some of our favorite toys that do this double dental duty,

I like to use the C.E.T. chews that I get from my vet. They come in a varity of sizes and they break down easier than other rawhides. I give them to my dog daily and she just loves them.

I dont really care to use these products on my dogs since I always worry they will be just like the greenies and get stuck in the stomach or something. I prefer more natural ones like flossies and bully sticks.PLus I brush both my dogs teeth everyday just like I would do mine.
