I was given product for this post. All opinions are that of mine and my dog’s.
Hope you’re paying attention – it’s Pet Dental Health Month! I’m pretty sure it’s all-around Dental Health Month, but I think we tend to forget our special furry fellas. Just like us, dogs have teeth – and just like us, they are susceptible to gum disease and tooth loss as they get older. So it is extremely important to keep those choppers clean.
Sebastian got some Stewart Dental Treats, and he LOVES them! Now, I’ve tried dental treats and chews with Sebastian, and some of them are so awful that he doesn’t even put them in his mouth. He just sniffs them, looks at me and says “WTF is this?! You think I’m gonna eat this?!” (If you look far back enough through my Instagram feed, you can see him doing this to me.)
I’ve also tried some dental chews that have given him digestive problems. So you have to be mindful of these things.
But nope, Sebastian loves these! He got the mint flavor – but you can also get cheese and blueberry (made with real cheese and blueberry, respectively). I am amazed that not only does he love these; he enjoys getting about three every day! I refer to them as “something tasty” and he immediately starts wagging his tail and salivating! Good job, Stewart!
One thing I have noticed about Stewart Dental Treats is that they are extremely small – about the size of a training treat. For a small dog like Sebastian, this is nice because he is known to chew larger things for a short amount of time and then leave them. It takes Sebastian no longer to chomp on one of these than it does to give him a training treat.
Sebastian and I made a video (because that’s what we do) to show you how to brush your dog’s teeth using Stewart Dental Treats. And away we go!
Now, I wouldn’t recommend these to replace a good, quality teeth-brushing. It’s still important to use canine toothpaste and a dog toothbrush on a regular basis. However, these are a great go-between, and if your dog has just presented you with a “gift” of his latest conquest from the yard, they can help out as well.
Seabass will be back to review more doggie stuff from Stewart Pet and other places! Take care of those choppers, everyone!
