Your dog's dental care should be an everyday priority, and most veterinarians recommend brushing your canine's teeth every day. In between brushings, dog dental treats can help reinforce the hard dental hygiene work you perform as a pet parent. Your pup may not need dental chews if you brush daily but can be given daily between cleanings.

As with most health-related treatments, we recommend consulting your veterinarian about what types of chews to use. If your canine has dietary or weight issues, your vet may suggest alternatives to feeding your pet chews or dental sticks for dogs. Also, it's recommended to provide your pup with plenty of water when providing them these hygienic snacks.

Each dog can be different, and therefore can have different tastes. Some of the best dog dental treats recommended by a friend may not appeal to your own pet. Luckily, we offer various dog teeth cleaning products that can appeal to even picky pups—like rawhide chews, dental bones and grain-free options. At Petco, we recommend picking out a few and see which one your pet likes best and which ones significantly clean your canine's teeth. Choosing a chew with a texture that adequately cleans plaque will likely be one of the best fits for your dog.

As long as the treats do not interfere with your pet's regular nutritional plan and are not given in excess, teeth cleaning dog treats can be good for them. Not only do they help clean teeth and freshen breath when appropriately used, but they also help maintain healthy dog gums. However, dental chews may not be appropriate if your canine has pre-existing dental conditions or has trouble chewing. Consult your veterinarian to find out if these dental solutions are suitable for your pet.
