Greenies for Dogs: Taking Care of Dogs Bad Breath, Teeth and Gums

Has your dog ever leaned over and given you a few affectionate face licks, and suddenly you wish they hadn’t?

We don’t want to hurt their feelings, but sometimes our dog’s breath ranges from bad to offensive, just like ours can without proper hygiene. At times, we may not take our dogs oral hygiene as seriously as we should, insert cliché, “dogs’ mouths are cleaner than humans!”. The fact is, our dogs oral health is an important aspect of their overall health, and there are steps we can take to maintain and improve this.

One oral health product that has found popularity is called, “Greenies”.

Simply put, Greenies are dental hygiene disguised as doggy treats. If you’ve never seen one, they look like a little green half-dog-bone half-toothbrush, but luckily our dogs don’t pick up on that. They also come in tablet form, with flavored pill pockets included (but these don’t seem to be as popular among dog owners).

Greenies help fight against plaque and tartar build-up in our dog’s teeth and gums, the same way our toothpaste and our dentist does for us. And as far as our friends with bad breath go, Greenies help improve that as well! They have even introduced a new product, “Breath Busters Bites”, which seem to be like Altoids for your dog.
