Keep your pet chewing

Following Dental month, we are often asked by our clients if it is okay to feed their dogs bones to keep their teeth in good condition. We see patients in our clinics regularly with problems caused by eating bones. Cooked bones that can splinter and cause damage to the mouth and digestive tract.  Large beef shin bones that damage the teeth, we often see our dental patients with tooth fractures from chewing on the large very hard marrow bones. Hills T/D Dental food is an ideal substitute for bones as the kibble is designed to help scrape the plaque and tartar from the teeth, cleaning the tooth surface and fighting bacteria.  T/D can be fed as a complete food also! Oravet Dental Hygiene Chews are great for the dogs that enjoy a "chew" they can be given daily which is great for the owners who like to give their pets a "treat”, they also help reduce plaque and tartar.  They are a better option, just remember to get the correct size chew for your dog.
