Dental Chew Toys For Your Dog

Every dog owner has experienced a dog’s bad breath. Because your pet can’t brush its teeth, it is up to you to give them chew toys that help clean teeth.  Dogs face the same dental issues that people do, only they can’t floss.  Dog food gets trapped between their teeth, tartar builds up and soon your dog’s breath is awful and they may be on their way to tooth issues that require special care.  Luckily, there are some easy and fun ways that you can help your dog avoid some of those dental problems.

Chewing Toys Can Help With Dental Issues

All dogs chew, some more than others.  As your dog leaves the puppy stage, you have hopefully trained them to know what they can chew and what they can’t.  A lot of chew toys are designed to entertain the dog, but more and more of them are now being designed to help with your dog’s dental health.  It stands to reason that if they are going to chew a toy, that toy should serve a purpose other than keeping your pet amused.

You can now find chew toys that are specifically designed to help your dog get rid of plaque and food deposits that build up between and on their teeth.  These toys will have hard nubs that also help massage the gums, keeping the blood flow constant to the teeth.  Some, like the Arm & Hammer chew toys, release small amounts of baking soda that help freshen breath and kill germs.

Because periodontal disease is found in almost 80% of adult dogs, it is important that you pay attention to your dog’s dental health.  Regular visits to the vet are important, but you can help your dog by giving them chew toys designed to clean their teeth.  Here are a few that we really like.
