A few weeks ago I noticed that my dog's teeth were badly covered in tarter. I found this odd because my dog's teeth had always looked great. My vet informed me that sometimes a dog's teeth can start to build tarter, just like human's teeth. He suggested I buy a special food that would help reduce the tarter.
Purina Canine DH Dental Health food is unlike other types of dog food because it takes longer for the dog to break it up. This means that the food's texture helps to remove tarter.
My vet said this food could be fed to my dog like regular food or I could give it to her as a treat. She is a very picky dog and I was certain she wouldn't eat it. But, I have tried both methods and have to say that my dog absolutely loves the taste of this food.
This dog food does just as it says it will. I suggest speaking with your vet if your dog has the same problem. This is a much better option than putting your dog to sleep so the vet can clean their teeth.
