The Truth About Dog Dental Care

Believe it or not, an estimated 80 percent of all dogs show signs of significant tooth decay, which could easily be avoided with regular dog dental care. Though it may sound like a chore, proper dental care is as easy as feeding a GREENIES® dental chew once a day — one of the most important things you can do for your dog’s health and overall well-being. Independent third party testing has shown that using GREENIES® Dental Chews results in a 60% reduction in tartar as well as a 33% decrease in plaque when compared to dogs who ate the same dry dog food diet without the GREENIES® Dental Chews.


Preventative Medicine

A mere sixty seconds of daily teeth cleaning can help keep your dog’s teeth looking great and help ward off:

-        Cavities

-        Tooth Decay & Loss

-        Periodontal Disease


Better Overall Health

Keeping up with regular maintenance for your canine can go a long way towards preventing many issues from reddened, inflamed gums to more serious infections that could make it uncomfortable for your dog to chew. 

The real culprit behind most pet dental diseases is bacteria. Bacteria usually comes from one of two things: tartar (plaque) build-up or debris (food/hair) trapped in a dog’s gum pockets. The most common problem associated with bacteria build up is gingivitis — reddened or inflamed gums.  GREENIES® Dental Chews can help you maintain the health of your dog’s teeth and gums as well as fighting tartar building up and plaques, as well as freshening his breath.
