Helps with "Sheltie Breath"

We were given a Shetland Sheep dog that had been rescued from an abusive situation. While he is a great dog, he suffers from terrible "sheltie breath" and dental issues. I've been brushing his teeth, giving him dental chew treats, and a yearly dental cleaning done with our veterinarian; but his teeth and breath were still bad. I decided to switch him to this RC Dental to see if it would help, and it's done wonders! No more "sheltie breath"! It's also lower in calories than the food he was on before, so it's helping him loose a few extra pounds.

Working so far

Seems to work great on my dogs teeth, keeping the tarter under control. Dog seems to like it well.

Best dental food on the market

Wouldn’t recommend anything else for keeping teeth clean. I use them as treats and in with their regular RC dry. Dogs love them and makes brushing their teeth easier. Noticed a definite reduction in tartar buildup and helps with their breath. Go longer between dental cleanings.

Blessing in a Bag!!

My 10 year old Maltese suffered from horrible bad breath and tarter within a month of having her teeth cleaned. She started this food 4 months ago after her last cleaning, and her teeth are still clean and her breath is fresh!! My Lab was always trying to eat her food instead of his, so I have started him on it too. Yay no more dental bills!!!

Great taste!!

Both my dogs love this food. One of them is extremely picky. Great for the teeth too! That's a bonus.

Dogs love it

My dogs love this food. I mix it with your regular canine adult and they always go for the dental first. My only suggestion would be to offer the small bites in a larger bag. I have 4 small dogs so a small bag is just not economical for me. My cat also loves her dental food. 10 paws up from our home!

Perfect Name

I think this food is great! I mix it in with my Bernese Mountain Dogs normal food to help with his dental hygiene and have been for a while. He is 5 years old and never needed a dental cleaning nor do we brush his teeth, so i can only assume that it is this great product the he loves and so do I!!
