Rated 2 out of 5 by Lindsey09 Like the product, just too small
My dog loves the bones, they just seem way to small. Scares me that he can pretty much swallow the whole thing after one piece is bit off. I looked at the next size up once he is 50lbs and they still don't seem big enough either. Bummed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Charlie This product works.
I was skeptical about the dental bones but gave them a try. They seem to work and our dogs breath is much better, they are now added to our auto-ship.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Judy Good quality treat
I have two old dogs who have become very picky with their meals and treats. These treats satisfy their chewy urge and are very digestible.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LizL Refused by my dog :(
I've tried daily, he refuses to even lick it! Waste of money, wish small trial size bags were offered would gladly pay for those to give different products a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by stephenw1 Nice chews for my dob
I have gotten these as I am trying to get some tartar off of my dogs teeth. I have notices that they are a little cleaner, and she loves the taste and chew of them. I will be purchasing more!

Rated 4 out of 5 by birdman Great product, label confusing
I have a 27 oz bag with 27 regular bones. They are great as the adds say.
But when I look to reorder the 27 oz bag has only 18 bones. It appears they made the bones larger. They are as big as they need to be now.
What happened to the bag with 27 bones?

Rated 3 out of 5 by Austin Bones made of healthy ingredients, but are they helpful?
From what I've gathered, the effectiveness of the majority of these "dental bones" comes more from the bones scraping plaque off teeth than any particular ingredient contributing to dental health. I decided to purchase a bunch of different popular dental bones and time how long it took for my dog to go through one of them. I compared Blue Buffalo Dental Bones, Blue Buffalo Wilderness Dental Bones, Zukes Z-Bones, Natural Balance Dental Chews, Smart n' Tasty Canine Dental Treats, and Greenies. While I've been told that Greenies have ingredients that are beneficial to teeth and gum health, I believe these ingredients are not. That said, the ingredients are very wholesome and healthy in general. Additionally, this seems to be the case with most treats labelled as "dental bones" on the market.
Since we're mainly measuring effectiveness of the scraping, I decided to time how long it takes for my dog to go through each bone and compare that to the other brands I tried. My logic here is that the longer the bone lasts, the more it will accomplish in scraping teeth clean. Blue Buffalo Dental Bones lasted on average 1 minute and 26 seconds, placing them in 5th place, out of 6.
The bones do have a very pleasant berry-like aroma and my dog thoroughly enjoyed them. While the bones smelled good in the bag, they did little to improve his breath. Comparing to the bones I tried, I would give these three stars.
