Benefits of Dental Treats for Dogs

Dental treats are not only a yummy snack for your dog, they can also help keep teeth and gums healthy and provide an assortment of other benefits. Many pet owners give their dogs treats as a reward for good behavior, but some treats can also be used as a supplement to your dog's daily meals.

Treats come in a wide assortment of different varieties, making it easy to find a great treat for your dog to enjoy. Most small treats will be gobbled up quickly, while a dental chew usually lasts longer. Always watch your dog while he or she is chewing the treat to prevent choking. Give your dog a dental treat or chew and enjoy the following benefits:

Eliminate bad breath

Dental chews for dogs are one of the most popular forms of treats, and can help reduce odors in the mouth. Specially formulated dental treats often include breath fresheners that work alongside the actual chewing power that removes unwanted substances from the teeth. If your dog has strong or chronic bad breath, it could be a sign of a gastrointestinal problem. If left untreated, this bacteria can enter the bloodstream and lead to heart disease.

Improve oral health

Just like us humans, plaque is a common issue for many dogs. Dental chews and treats help to not only clean the teeth, but also help reduce tartar and plaque buildup.

Max's Tip

While treats and chews are a great way to help maintain oral health, they should never replace frequent tooth brushing.
