They love them!

My 10 lb mini doxie and 7 lb Papillon go coo-coo for Cocoa Puffs over these! They are like treats to them. The vet recommended and I was no thrilled about the high price, so I give them to them as treats and then mix them in to a mid-grade food for their regular feeding. They do not have any problems fitting them in their mouths or chewing them. They are gone in no time and then they are begging for another. If I could afford to I would only feed them these.

Our Chihuahua says: Think dental treat, not Kibble

Bandido, the review-writing chihuahua here. I find these t/d treats good for crunchy dental fun but I would NEVER recommend them as food. Kibble? This ain't kibble. Kibble is small and cute. This is big, like a treat. You think the small size is big? You should see the large size! Mi mama had to cut those suckers in half in order for me to eat them. I know the "kibble" is big and crunchy to help my pearly whites stay clean, so putting water on/crushing these "puffs" defeats the purpose. Bandido rates the taste, texture, purpose and "treat-not-kibble" at 4 paws.

My vet recommended that I give these to my small dog in place of treats - that two or three a day would help - and it really has! They love them and I am optimistic that this will help with one of the most common problems in small dogs!

Surprised my chihuahua will eat these huge "treats," but it's working!

So, my vet told me to feed these to my 7.5-pound chihuahua as either a meal or a treat. He is a super picky eater who normally enjoys a diet of Fresh Pet and some softened Acana kibble. I was doubtful, but after reading the reviews, decided to give it a try. I had to introduce it strategically though. I began by crushing these mammoth kibbles, then giving my chihuahua and my large dog the treats together. That kind of gave him a taste, but it took him a while to understand they were OK. But then my chihuahua was in a crunchy mood (he usually refuses hard kibbles, but occasionally gets the urge to eat large kibbles from the large dog's bowl while she observes calmly from the couch). So, I added a couple of these big T/D kibbles to the large dog's bowl at that strategic moment, and the chihuahua stole one and ran off to his bed. Aha! I didn't think he would be able to eat it. It was a struggle for him. He really had to wedge it between his back teeth. But he did it. He seemed to think it was tasty, but he wasn't interested in working on any more of them. So I began breaking the big kibbles into pieces and serving it with his soft FreshPet food at mealtimes. He crunched and ate them. Now I'm increasing the size of the pieces I give him. Today, he just happily ate another whole, huge kibble, even when he still had soft food left. SO... it just takes a little strategy. I'm not feeding it to him as a primary diet, because it would take him an eternity to get his calorie intake unless I smash them to smithereens. But this wins as a dental treat. He normally won't do dental chews so this may be the answer! I'm giving four stars because... I don't think it will work as a diet for most chihuahuas. And they should give some instructions for tiny mouths, because many small dogs who see this won't understand at first that eating it is possible. But as a supplement, it's definitely good for the dental toolbox.

Excellent Dental Treats

You can use these as food, but we give our 35-lb, 14-y-o pooch 5 a night and toss them to give him exercise. He LOVES dental chews, and in the past 11 years, we've had no issues with his teeth at all. It's worth the hassle to get a vet's RX for these.

Too big and tough for truly small dog

The kibble is massive! Way too big for my 14 year old, 10 pound dog. The vet recommended it but I can’t see why. My dog liked the taste but she struggled to eat it. It was a wonder watcher her try the first day. After a few days, I couldn’t figure out why she wasn’t eating. Finally I watched her and saw she was licking the food because she likes the taste, but once the flavor was gone, she was done with it. She refused to chew it because it’s too hard. I tried wetting it down to try and get it soft enough for her to eat, but I don’t know if that minimizes it’s teeth cleaning effect. It just seems strange that a teeth cleaning food would be too painful for a dog with bad teeth to eat. I wish it would’ve worked out because apparently it works wonders for other dogs. This was a very expensive experiment.

Dental Dog Food

Over priced dog food that did nothing to help my dogs teeth. I do not recommend this for people with older dogs or on a budget

Not for small dogs!

The kibble for the "small bites" is way too large for any small dog. More like Newfoundland sized. We have broken them up with a hammer to make them editable for our Yorkie mix.

Picky eater loves it

I have two pugs and one of them is a very picky eater. My vet recommended these kibble and we have been using them to supplement their diet for a year now. It’s not their main kibble but they do get a handful everyday and I also give it to them as a treat. They love these! They do take them from their bowl and like to chew them on the couch or in the carpet. They usually end up leaving a lot of crumbs behind which can be messy. The pieces are large, but that’s the point.
