    Vet recommended

    By on

    Our vet recommended this for our Corgis. One of our corgi has a lot of tartar on her teeth. Doc thought this would help. We do brush her teeth. Her tartar build up was there when we adopted her. Hoping this helps after she gets her teeth cleaned.

    Smaller pieces for little mouths

    By on

    I started feeding my Chihuahua Hills Prescription t/d last year after she had her first teeth cleaning and one extraction. The pieces were huge and she had a hard time breaking it up. This brand has smaller pieces she can handle and they smell better. She seems to want to eat now, whereas with the other food we had to make a game out of it.

    Great product

    By on

    My dog loves this food and it is good for her. Besides the teeth benefit, her stomach is always settled with it. However, it is too big for her and I have to cut each one in half. She is a 6lb Yorkie. I wish they made tiny bits so I didn’t have to cut each piece in half for her to eat.

    Not very small bites

    By on

    Got this after a recommendation from the vet office following a very expensive teeth cleaning/extraction for our 11lb Silky. She doesn't let me brush her teeth at all so decided to try this through Chewy. Chewy contacted the vet and delivered in just a few days. I was surprised at how large the small bites are but I get why. Our girl loved it right away. About 2 weeks later she is not so interested. I think our rescue dog is spoiled and kinda too lazy to chew this kibble (but don't tell her I said that!) The time between the teeth cleaning and getting this kibble was about a month and we were noticing that her breath was starting to stink again in between.

    Great Dental Food for Small Dogs

    By on

    This kibble worked perfect for my 8 lb older dog. It's not too large that she has trouble eating it, which was an issue with other food I've tried for her. Will definitely continue to buy this for her.

    Better brand for my dog

    By on

    My dog loves these dental bites as they are smaller than the Hills brand but my vet stopped ordering Purina's brand so it's great that I can get this at Chewy.com

    Dry tidbits

    By on

    I think they were okay. Being a 7lb Chihuahua, maybe they would have been better if they were smaller bite size. He needs to eat more harder foods to help keep the tarter off his teeth. Thank you chewy for making our love ones and us a convenient way to shop and feed.
