Chewing is certainly beneficial in helping to reduce dental disease. The physical action helps to remove the plaque biofilm from the teeth. The increased saliva production also plays a role in helping to rinse themouth. It is important to use a chew that your dog will enjoy – especially as chews should be given daily. Pedigree® Dentastix® have a unique X shape and when fed daily, their special texture and active ingredients can reduce tartar build up by up to 80% and plaque is reduced by 30% on average. In addition, because they are tasty and chewy your dog will love his new dental health routine.
Dual action Whiskas® Dentabits have been specially developed to help keep your cat's teeth and gums healthy in two ways. They have a gently abrasive texture to help clean her teeth as they are chewed and are made with green tea, scientifcally proven to help improve dental hygiene by reducing the build up of plaque and tartar. To help keep teeth and gums healthy feed 8 pieces a day.
Feed Dental Chews (such as Dentastix and Dentabits) daily.
