Did you know that February is Pet Dental month? A whole month devoted to making sure that our chompers are healthy and looking pretty. We need our teeth to be healthy, because poor dental health can lead to other problems. Mom likes having me around, so if a chewy a day can keep other issues away, then I am all for it.
We had lots of dental chew options to choose from this month. I picked out Greenies. I got to test out their regular dental chews. They have blueberry, weight management, grain free, hip and joint, and ones that gives us minty fresh breath!
One of the other reasons we chose Greenies is because they are made right here in Kansas City! We have even driven by the factory! It is close to the Lily hut. It even has a sign that says Greenies.
Mom chose the large size since I am 52 lbs. I could go with the medium size, but since I have giant chompers, we decided that the large would be better for me.
As you can tell, I have big chompers. The large size is big enough to clean those teeth and keep them pretty.
The large size in original flavor has 145 calories per treat. The other flavors and types vary in calorie content. We know from my diet days that this is way over my usual calorie amount for treats, but since it is for my chompers, mom makes an exception. They are made with soluble and all natural ingredients. They also contain added vitamins and minerals. That means we can have an easily digestible treat and get all the nutrients that we need to stay healthy.
Greenies dental chews have The Veterinary Oral Health Council Seal of Acceptance for plaque and tartar control. That mans that they think they are pretty good chews and they can totally help us keep our chompers clean and healthy.
The dental treats look like toothbrushes! The unique texture helps fight plaque and tartar.
Eyes on the prize ladies and gentleman. I like to stay focused when I am about to get a yummy chew. I have to give it a good lick to make sure it is something that I would like to eat. After a couple licks, I gently took it from moms hand and was off to my chewing spot. I like to make sure I pick a spot that provides maximum support so I do not drop the chewy. I can eat these pretty fast, but still make sure that I am actually chewing the pieces I break off and not swallowing them like I do with most other things. Make sure you keep on eye on us while we enjoy our chew. Swallowing whole chunks is bad and could hurt us.
I thought that these were pretty tasty. Mom just has to ask if I want a chewy and I will come running. I stare at her until she gets one out of the bag and hands it to me. I run off with the chew into my chewing spot. It makes me drool lots and I end up getting pieces everywhere. I am great at cleaning up and make sure that I do not leave any pieces anywhere. I have another chew that I enjoy, but I think they are both equally yummy.
Mom thinks it does a good job of making my breath not so doggy like. As if dog breath is a bad thing. I thought people live to smell puppy breath? Whatever. She feels that it is doing a good job of keeping my teeth pretty, which makes her happy and me happy that the vet thinks my teeth are looking good for a six year old pup. She also likes that they are not as stinky as my other chews. Again with the smells. Humans sure are picky about smells.
I give these four paws up. I am hoping to try out other flavors of Greenies soon. I bet those Fresh and Blueberry ones are pretty pawsome.
