I got these for my friend's little 10 lb Shizu/Bichon while he was staying with us and our six big dogs (40-100 lbs). This product works great! I've only been using for about 3 weeks now, but the tarter is going away on the big guys. This lil guy is really picky with food, so I didn't know if he would take it, but thought it worth a try. He excitedly took it, then spit it out when he couldn't immediately chew it. He tried again and it broke into three pieces. He chewed each of the pieces and has been taking them ever since. Loves them- can't wait to have it. I know it will help his tarter that is beginning to show, Highly recommend.
My dog loves them AND they work!

My Pomeranian loves these and so do my small grooming regulars. I love them because they are natural, not fattening, made in the USA, and they work! I adopted my dog as an adult, so he wasn't introduced to toothbrushing and fights it. In addition to the fight he puts up, brushing teeth on a dog with a tiny face is difficult. These make life so much easier and more pleasant for us both! They also reduce staining as well as cleaning. I am so happy we found these!
Great for bad breath
on May 19, 2017Top 1000 Contributor
My rescue Jake has perpetually bad breath (teeth and mouth are fine) - even though he eats the exact same food and treats as my other dog, Rose (who's breath smells like practically nothing) Since Jake's breath could take paint off a wall, we knew we needed to do something.
He'll eat anything, so we tried these. He gets one in the morning and one at night and about a month later - big difference. He still has bad breath, but it's MUCH better. Hopefully the longer we use these, the better it will get.
The world's pickiest chihuahua approves!
on Apr 22, 2017
My chihuahua Buddy, whom we should have named Mikey from the old Life cereal ads because "he hates everything", will actually eat these! I've tried so many teeth cleaning treats and it's as if he knows that it's something that's supposed to be "good for him", so he just sniffs them and walks away. These by Ark Naturals are to only ones that he actually will get excited to eat. Thanks Ark Naturals!
Chihuahua loves them!
on Mar 31, 2017
My 3-year old chihuahua absolutely loves these! She thinks they are treats but in reality they are actually doing a lot to help her teeth and mouth healthy and clean. Even though they're already pretty small, I cut each chew into 4 even smaller pieces and give them to her in the morning and evening after she eats. The first time I tried to give her one she wasn't interested, but eventually she came around to the taste. You have to be patient - most dogs initially aren't attracted to dental treats! Best tip I have is to cut them into smaller pieces and wrap them in something yummy, like peanut butter or cheese. Eventually they will learn to love them!
Brushless tooth paste.
on Apr 26, 2017
I'm not sure I'm really educated enough to rate this product either way. I've read the ingredients but I'm not familiar enough to know how all these ingredients work in a cohesive environment. My dog does like them and for the most part has sound teeth and gums. I do brush his teeth daily as well. I use these as a night time treat.

Was very excited when my package arrived. Gave each of my cats a chew treat. They each took a few sniffs and walked away. Listed as a cat chew but the strong aroma might be more suited for a dog.
My little Yorkie loves them!

I have a 4 lbs, old Yorkie that has lost a few teeth, but he loves these. It is his daily treat.
Cat won't try them

My cat doesn't want anything to do with these. :( So they're wasted.
Great for little dogs
on Feb 6, 2017
Although I think the product is great, has a strong bacony smell, my cats unfortunately didn't like it as it was a little too hard to chew. Although that's exactly what makes it work. So I still recommend this product, but not as much for cats.
