Virbac C.E.T. HEXtra Premium Dental Dog Chews
While this product may work as described, it would be difficult to believe it was so since the pieces of chews within the size bag are vastly different. I cannot believe that my dogs could be getting a therapeutic benefit when the pieces are sometimes so small and thin that they barely need to chew. They just get the piece of rawhide soft and swallow it whole. This is dangerous and a choking hazard. When I purchase medium chews, I need medium chews, not petite chews. I will likely not purchase again.

Great Teeth Cleaner
I bought these for my 14 yo dog who had some plaque issues. The vet said she needed them cleaned but at her age, I didnt want her knocked out due to the dangers. I bought a bag of 30 at my vets and another bag after that. She had a 2 month follow up and the vet was amazed at her teeth and asked what I was doing for her. I told her about these chews. My dog still gets one eveyday and will continue to do so plus she loves them. I highly recommend them.

My dog likes these and I like that it aids in oral care
It might be just me, but these treats smell kind of gross straight out of the bag. My dog likes chewing on these and her breath smells like the treat for about half an hour (stinky). Afterwards, her breath goes back to normal (no smell). I like the idea of these (I can't tell if they do that much). At best, these would help slow down plaque/tartar build-up. At worst, my dog simply enjoys chewing these for fun. Either way it's a win-win for us. I just wish they initially smelled better to me.

Give these to puppy every day
My yorkie puppy does not stop until he finishes these! I give him one every day to help keep his teeth clean.

These are the only rawhides our vet recommends and our dogs absolutely love them! I only buy them here at Chewy, as they are half the cost they are at the vet. We have Patterdale Terriers and they are voracious chewers, even as puppies, so these are a necessity.

My dogs didn't chew on them a lot as I had hoped.
The product seems good but, my two dogs didn't love them. They chewed on them a bit but, for the most part haven't gone back to them much. That being said, my dogs are a bit picky about things. I'm sure that some dogs would love them where others don't care for them at all. I'm still hoping they may go back to them one day. They do have a lot of things to chew on and play with and can be a bit fickle.

Get Petite Regardless
Petite size is different from the rest... it breaks easily and is therefore chewed easily. I tried the larger size for my pug, but he couldn't really chew it, got bored, and abandoned it. He's never really done well with rawhides. Petites are more like small pieces fused together - the consistency of old cardboard if that makes sense. Not sure if they actually help with teeth, but the vet raved about them... and sold them for twice the price.

My dog loves these!
I don't know how well they work individually as we introduced them at the same time as other teeth cleaning products. We bought the petite size for out 15lb Bichon Frise because she's an animated chewer and I worry about her choking on larger, soft pieces of rawhide. But she needed her teeth cleaned at home so we don't have to put her under at the vet's - there has been a noticable [frankly amazing] reduction in tartar and plaque since using these along with Dental Chewz [see other products reviewed] and Tropiclean Clean Teeth Gel. We also use a Tropiclean water additive but had not noticed a reduction before this. I do know that my girl love love LOVES these and will come from another room when she hears the bag. I try to hold the pieces so she has to bite and chew from both sides since they are quite easy to break apart and she can down them in no time - I want them to work! I will definitely buy again and wish they weren't so expensive!
