Metro Pets

It’s a wonderful thing when products that any dog can enjoy also promote good dental health. Don’t we all love doggy kisses?! So here are a few items that make for sweet smelling doggie breath.

Terrabone Edible Dental Chew Bones are 100% natural, low fat, low calorie treats that will freshen your dog’s breath with ingredients such as peppermint and rosemary oil. The bones are easily digested and corn, wheat, soy and gluten free. Also from CompleteNaturalNutrition are Terrabone B-Calm and Jump’nJoints treats.

Available online at Only Natural Pet Store http:// or at Perfect Paws 102 Hicks Street, Brooklyn 718-852-6200

The Hartz Chew ‘n Clean Dental Duo is a toy, a treat and provides dental benefits. Its curved, narrow plastic tray holds a layer of bacon flavor treat made from cornstarch with a row of nubs in the center that massage gums and help remove tartar as your dog works to break off pieces of the treat. My dog enjoys holding it between her paws, flinging it with her mouth and chasing it down again.

Available online at Kmart and at Rite Aid, see for locations

Don’t tell my dog that Petrodex Enzymatic Toothpaste in Chicken or Beef or Peanut flavor isn’t a treat because she loves the stuff! How great is it that she actually looks forward to teeth brushing because she loves the taste of the toothpaste? The Natural Dog Dental Care Kit comes with a long double-headed toothbrush, a finger toothbrush and a tube of toothpaste. Petrodex also makes Breathsations Chews, mint flavor treats that taste good and help reduce tartar and plaque buildup.

Available online at Wag and at PetSmart for locations

Here’s to your dog’s gleamin’ grin!
