I think we all can attest that smelly dog kisses are just gross, yet when it comes to our beloved pooch there are just never enough affectionate slobbers. We have all probably heard from our great entrusted canine docs that preach brush, brush, and brush. In fact, they often sound like dentists…’floss, floss, and floss.’
While it is true that there is no better preventative therapy from dental disease (aka…yuck mouth) than brushing our dogs teeth daily, there are some albeit rare products that can further aid in preventing dental disease.
The new dental rawhide chews at RVVS have an abrasive texture that helps prevents plaque and tartar build-up. We like this product so much that we have put our own River Valley Veterinary Service logo and brand on it! Of note, these dental chews and brushing are only going to prevent disease from accumulating, thus it’s very important that your dog’s teeth are already healthy.
For example, if your canine sidekick already has very irritated, reddened gums with significant plaque buildup with an odorous breath, then your hardworking dollars are better spent getting a professional cleaning than hoping these magic chews will get him an A+ from the doggy dentist. Once his teeth are pearly white again, then back to brushing and RVVS dental chews he goes!
