While most pet parents know that dental care is important for overall pet health, they might not know how to start an oral care regimen. Not all consumers have the time to regularly brush their pet’s teeth and to take them for professional cleanings. Manufacturers continue to improve upon the dental care options that are out there, and pet owners have more choices than ever. Health brands offer a wide range of dental products, from supplements and chews to brushes and wipes, that will provide a measure of convenience for consumers. Savvy pet retailers should stock a variety of the following dental care products to ensure that their customers will find the dental offering that is right for their pet.


Yummy Combs

Yummy Combs are made wide with thin walls to floss and scrub teeth 360 degrees to the gum line and deter gulping. It’s a complete and balanced treat designed with a board-certified veterinary specialist in dentistry and nutrition. Safety, oral care and wellness are the heart of this groundbreaking, high protein dog treat. 




Shameless Dental Sticks

Is going to the doggy dentist up there with wearing a bark collar? That’s why Shameless has made its dental treats with ridges in order to deep clean teeth. Shameless also adds key upcycled ingredients to support your pup’s total health. Pucker up and get ready for that big, wet, thank you kiss! This selection of healthy sustainable dental sticks contain at least 30 percent upcycled ingredients. 




Denta-Meter Hardness Scale 

Ark Naturals’ Denta-Meter Hardness Scale lets you choose the correct dental chew from soft to hard, thanks to the new Soft Shield and Extreme Clean products.
