Question Do dentastix work and what are the best

Hi all,

We've been getting our 4 dogs a pack of the fresh pedigree dentastix every week for the last month or so but i was in b&m today and came across a 20 pack of dentastix (non branded) for 3.

Would these non branded dentastix be ok to give our dogs or are the pedigree ones better for them?

Also can people tell me their opinions on dentastix and whether they think they work or not please

Kind regards Mark

Re: Do dentastix work and what are the best

Hi, to be honest, i cant imagine the non branded dentastix being any different to pedigree ones, going by the ingredients in pedigree dentastix, i would say nothing of any real benefit, and do nothing for dogs teeth, so really not worth bothering with.

Pedigree ingredients
Ingredients: Rice flour, wheat starch, glycerin, calcium carbonate, gelatin, gum arabic, cellulose powder, natural poultry flavor, sodium tripolyphosphate, salt, potassium chloride, potassium sorbate (a preservative), vitamins [choline chloride, d-calcium pantothenate, vitamin B12 supplement, vitamin A supplement, niacin, riboflavin (vitamin B2), pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6), dl-alpha tocopherol acetate (source of vitamin E), folic acid], smoke flavor, turmeric, iron oxide, copper sulfate.

How is any of that going to help your dog's teeth? Raw meaty bones or good chews are far better for their teeth.

Re: Do dentastix work and what are the best

Dentastix is not the best thing for cleaning teeth and preventing plaque. Chicken wings ( raw) are excellent, I'm going to start my dog on them after our holiday. Currently she has Fish4Dogs seafood jerky, they're strips of baked fish skins, very crunchy and considered pretty good for cleaning. I also use Plaque Off in her food, and I must say her teeth look pretty good, apart from being a bit fishy her breath smells fine.
She ha multiple dental extractions just before we got her from rescue in January, so I'm pretty keen to keep her remaining teeth in good condition,

Our dog had these as treats all her life, she's now 15 and I can't honestly say they have done a thing for her teeth.

Re: Do dentastix work and what are the best

We have given various products like these to our dogs and I really don't feel like they work very well. I have started brushing their teeth and even with that, one of them needs to get a teeth cleaning procedure done by the vet. :/
I would say that they don't have much of a benefit.
