A simple dog chew can make the world of difference to your dog’s oral health. Just like humans, dogs can suffer from things like gum disease, bad breath and rotten teeth. However, when prevented and treated with dog chews, dogs can avoid health problems like loss of appetite, broken and even lost teeth.
How do dog chews help with dental hygiene
How can dog treats help? Well, it’s been proven that dogs that chew actively have less plaque build-up. Some dental treats even reduce plaque by nearly 70%. Dog chews aren’t just about solving plaque issues though. They can also reduce bad breath in dogs, which is good news for both owners and their furry friends.

There are quite a few chews that are safe for dogs. The trick is to look for chews that are somewhat soft. This means stay away from hard treats and chews like hooves and antlers. If the treat or chew is too hard, your dog will eventually end up fracturing their teeth.
Safe chews and treats for dogs are also calorie-conscious. Try to stick to chews and treats that are holistic. If your dog is fussy about what they eat, you can try things like buffalo chops, lamb steak treats and roo crinkles so that they are at least getting some nutritional value from the protein.
When properly designed, dental treats and dog chews work to help keep plaque and tartar buildup to a minimum. If the dental treat encourages your dog to chew or gnaw for a period of time, the salivary glands are stimulated, which results in more saliva being produced and released into the mouth.
The antibacterial properties of saliva help control the buildup of plaque and the development of gum diseases. So, you want a dog chew that can scrub the teeth while being chewed. This is where design comes in, if the treat is too small, your dog will eat it with ease and will therefore experience no benefits.
