Learn How to Make Your Pet's Teeth Twinkle!

Posted on 09.21.2022

Treats Unleashed understands the importance of dental health. We carry a variety of dental products ranging from supplements to prevent tooth and gum issues, to dental treats, to bones, to toothpaste gel and toothbrushes. Dogs and cats lack an oral enzyme that helps break down build up. Due to this lack, it is important that we are adding dental supplements or additives to our pet's diet.

Tropiclean carries a number of different dental hygeine products, so there is a perfect match for every pet! Add a tablespoon of Tropiclean's water additive to your pet's water bowl to aid in the process of breaking down buildup. For fresh breath and extra clean teeth, use Tropiclean's clean teeth gel. This gel helps break down the build up that is already present while also leaving a yummy after-taste for our furry friends. Finally, for some extra shine, you can brush your pup's teeth with Tropiclean's finger toothbrush or handle toothbrush.

Proden Plaque Off has a clinically proven positive effect and is veterinarian recommended for our furrry loved ones. This product utilizes sustainably harvested kelp from the Scandanavian coastline with no additives - making it safe and healthy for your pet. If used daily, this product helps reduce and control plaque and tarter while also keeping your pet's breath fresh.

Benebone offers nylon chews in different shapes and sizes - making them a great choice for small, medium, and large dogs! These long lasting chews are bursting with flavors like bacon, chicken, peanut butter, or fish. Since they are made of nylon, these hard chews help to break up the inevitable plaque and tartar build up.

Primal Pet Food is your one stop shop for all things raw! Supplementing raw food into your pet's diet not only betters their dental hygeine, but also positively affects their joints, skin and coat, and overall health. For a long-lasting chew that helps fight off plaque and tartar, Primal sells raw marrow bones. The bones are never cooked and naturally filled with raw marrow. Once your pet chews out the marrow from the inside, use the bone as an all-natural Kong!

Treats Unleashed sells a variety of different "brush" treats. Brands like Whimzees, Greenies, and Ark Natural offer different types of dental treats that help fight off plaque and tartar while also freshening their breath.These treats have ridges that get in between the crevices of your pet's teeth -- helping to break up the build up and irritate the gums to prevent re-growth.

Remember that every pet is different! Even though a product works with one pet, it doesn't necassarily mean it will work with another. Stop into your local Treats Unleashed today to find the best fit for your pet.

We’re not veterinarians. Treats Unleashed staff are well educated, and our writing is well-researched, but neither the advice of a Treats Unleashed staff member nor reading Treats Unleashed's written materials can substitute for visiting a veterinarian. We offer carefully chosen, natural solutions, but we believe that veterinary conditions should be diagnosed and treated by professionals.
