Blue Buffalo Dental Bones Dog Treats - chewy.com Product Review

February is Pet Dental Health Month. While dental care is important year round, Dental Health Month spreads awareness for just how important it is. According to the American Veterinary Dental College, most dogs and cats show some evidence of periodontal disease by age 3. The severity of periodontal disease can range from inflammation of the gums, to gum/bone loss around the teeth, to bone infection. Consult your veterinarian to determine the best prevention or treatment for you pet.

Chewy's dental routine includes nightly toothbrushing, crunchy treats like dog biscuits, chewy treats like bully sticks, chew toys, and the occasional dental chew.

In keeping with the theme of dental health, this month's chewy.com review is a dental health product: Blue Buffalo Dental Bones

Blue Buffalo Dental Bones
They are made with all natural ingredients, including carrots, blueberries, and parsley.

They also contain flaxseed, a source of Omega-3 and -6 Fatty Acids. You can even see the flaxseeds in the treats (dark specks in the photo below). However, they appear to be whole flaxseeds, not ground, so I am skeptical about how much of its beneficial nutrients actually get absorbed by the dog.

Chewy can devour one of these treats in 1 minute. His technique is: bite one end off and chew it, bite the middle off and chew it, and then chew the remaining end piece. He only uses his back teeth in the process, so the rest of his teeth do need other care. Nevertheless, the treats seem to clean his back teeth as well as daily brushing does.

Om nom nom

Making a mess, like a Chewy does
I read that freezing these dental bones will make them more difficult to chew and therefore last longer, but I forgot to try it before Chewy finished the bag. Whoops!

All in all, these are a good dental treat made from natural ingredients, and especially great if you want a treat free of corn, wheat, and soy.
