Why I Give My Dog WHIMZEES Natural Dental Chews

I used to set a reminder on my phone to brush my dog's teeth every other day. This felt necessary not just for Kali's dental hygiene, but also because she has admittedly awful breath. Kali hated getting her teeth brushed, though, so I tried dental chews—but none felt truly effective until I found WHIMZEES Natural Dental Chews.

I wanted a dental treat that would eliminate problem-causing bacteria and fight plaque as well as cleaning her teeth, not just mask her doggy breath. But unlike brushing her teeth, I wanted a delivery method that both Kali and I agreed on. Kali's favorite WHIMZEES treats, the alligator-shaped treats and the bone-shaped brushes, check all of the boxes. The fun-shaped treats aren't just for aesthetics; they help to increase blood flow to her gums to reduce bad breath, plaque, and tartar. One WHIMZEES treat a day can clean her teeth two times better than traditional dental treats, and the effects can last three times longer.*

Not only does her fresh breath last, but the treats themselves are also long-lasting. When I need to put Kali in her crate or keep her distracted for a bit, I can give her a WHIMZEES dental treat and know she is happily occupied for longer than five minutes. Like most dogs, Kali loves to chew—on bones, furniture, sticks—and these large treats are a safe alternative to what she typically tries to gnaw on. (Note: WHIMZEES treats are available in a variety of sizes. Choose the one that best matches your dog's weight).

Another bonus? WHIMZEES' dental treats contain just six main ingredients that are non-GMO and free of artificial colors, preservatives, gluten, and meat. They're also high in fiber, low in sugar, and sustainably manufactured.

If you're looking for a dog-approved dental treat that will deliver owner-approved results, Kali and I highly suggest WHIMZEES Natural Dental Chews. Shop all the fresh-breath options below.
