A happy smile with dental dog food
Whether you wake up to slobbery kisses or catch a whiff of it while cosying up on the couch, there is nothing that will ruin a cuddle faster than stinky dog breath. It can also be a sign of bad dental health. Trapped pieces of food or other items your doggo has picked up on a walk can lead to plaque and tartar build-up on their teeth, which can cause disease and tooth decay.
Dental care dog food can help keep your pups teeth and gums healthy and clean, reducing the build-up of plaque, tartar and stains, as well as maintaining a healthy immune system that can help fight off illness.
How dental dry food for dogs brushes away plaque
Dry dog food is the best option for dental health. The shape and texture of the kibble encourages chewing, acting like a toothbrush and clearing away dental nasties before they can cause problems.
When it comes to dental kibble for dogs the size of the food makes all the difference. Larger kibble is best. Pets will chew kibble too quickly if it’s on the small side and they won’t get the benefits of all that chewing.
The best dental food for small dogs
Of course, the right dental food needs to match the breed. So, while larger kibble is best for bigger breeds, also keep in mind that smaller dogs may need modest kibble bites. Bottom line? The smaller the dog, the smaller the kibble - it’s all relative to their size!
