Greenies Canine Dental Chews
I’ve seen the green toothbrush looking dog chew every time I enter my pet specialty store, but never gave much thought to checking it out or even purchasing one.
I procured one recently, and called the toll free phone number on the package for more information. Most of the writing on the package is microscopic, and of that 2/3 is in French. They do offer ingredients in English.
Sweet potato, green tea extract, peas, potato, dried tomato and apple pomace, are some of the flavors mixed in, while also offering Vitamins A , B1, B5, B6, B12, C, D, and D3.
The wrapper also promises that Greenie Canine Dental Chews cleans your dogs teeth and also freshens its’ breath. What dog owner doesn’t appreciate fresh breath from our canine companions?
However, there is nothing mentioned about how often Dental Chews should be offered and used by our dogs. I also wondered if they were designed to be chewed like a raw hide, in that it is long lasting, or are they like normal snacks/treats which get wolfed down. My dog did the latter, it was literally gone in 60 seconds, and he seemed to enjoy it and wanted more.
So I called their toll free phone number and a product specialist answered very quick. She said they were designed for dogs to chew up all at once, and that the dog needs to chew for 60 seconds to get the full benefit of Canine Dental Chews. She added that it is recommended as a daily dose.
They make different sized bones, based on a dog’s weight. My dog is 93 lbs, so he got the 50-100 pound size. I’m not convinced he got maximum value or cleaning, since he wolfed it down, but it makes sense that over the course of a week, every accessible surface of every tooth would get cleaned.
A problem I have is convenience. Greenies are only sold by A) specialty pet stores–my local outlet is not close, is hard to get to, and once I get there, its hard to get out (one way streets); B) veterinarians—This is a slightly better option and location, and its easy in, easy out; C) online—great convenience and easy price comparisons.
Prices ranged from $1.99 for one chew, to a tub or bucket for $29.00 to $32.99. Shopping around online is the best way to compare prices, and some sites offered free shipping if you bought a tub. Pet Specialty box stores carried these in singular packages, as well as bags and tubs.

I found this site to be chock full of much better information, such as care instructions, helpful info, study results, and other types of help:
There is a Greenies Smart Treating Program you can sign up for on the Greenies brand page, as well as liking them on facebook, so you can receive alerts about new products, sales, and coupons.
I hope your canine companion enjoys Greenies Canine Dental Chews as much as my dog did!!!!
