for the Green Litte Dog at Your House
Many of my readers tell me that brushing their dogs' teeth is simply not an option. I can write about it, encourage it and even show off pearly whites to set the example, but I can't make it happen.
That's where Greenies come in, the dental chew that helps to clean your pets' teeth. Most pet owners know that their dogs' oral health is connected to their furry friends' overall, long term health. Greenies can help by doing what the lack of a toothbrush is failing to accomplish: remove or reduce plaque on the teeth. Further, this digestible formula doesn't have the same danger of splintering that many rawhide chews, bones and strips do.

So, with periodontal disease proven to be the most common pet health problem, what should you do to prevent it in your pet?
- Rinse with plaque-reducing rinses
- Use water additives that reduce plaque retention
- Choose kibble vs. canned or soft food, for better oral health
- Serve Greenies chew treat to reduce plaque and tartar. Other brands are available; however, Greenies seems to have taken the forefront in the public eye.They simply have the greatest visibility and the most widely-known name.
