CLINICALLY PROVEN: Accepted by the VOHC and clinically proven to reduce tartar buildup and maintain oral care

BRUSHING EFFECT: Exclusive kibble helps reduce plaque accumulation and tartar buildup by creating a tooth-brushing effect when dogs chew

URINARY SUPPORT: Promotes a diluted urine which helps reduce the risk of crystal formation in the bladder

Royal Canin Canine Dental Small Dog is a veterinary-exclusive dry dog food specially formulated to support your small dog’s oral health. It’s been awarded the Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC) “Helps Control Tartar” seal of approval, as it’s clinically proven to effectively reduce tartar buildup. It contains calcium and phosphorus to help support healthy teeth, and the uniquely designed kibble size and shape encourages chewing, which creates a tooth-brushing effect to help reduce plaque accumulation and tartar buildup. Plus, because small dogs have a tendency to have lower urinary tract health concerns, this diet is formulated to promote a diluted urine which helps reduce the risk of crystal formation.

Star Sapphire really likes the Dental for small

The Royal Canin-Dental Small dogs is what she likes...Was not allowed last order without Vet prescription, her vet started Star on it because he said Shi Tsu has bad teeth.

Best Dental Diet for my Small dogs!

I have used this dental food on my dogs for years and my Pomeranian "Glitter" has only ever had to have 1 dental in her lifetime while being on this food. I have her mainly on Mature Consult Small dog and have 3-4 kibbles per meal of the dental food. She also loves them as treats as well.

Easy to chew in small mouths.

This was easy for my Chihuahua to not only chew but she had no digestive problems like gas afterwards. A great product.

Wonderful Product!

I have 2 small breed dogs, and 1 was a rescue that had to have 8 teeth removed. After him going through that and wanting to prevent my other dog from having teeth problems, I switched to this product. My boys love the taste and I know I am giving them the best food for their needs.

Great for teeth

Highly recommended by my vet to help with tarter control and clean teeth.

Helped so much

I started buying this because my Papillon has terrible teeth she was receiving a dental every 6 months but even by then probably should have had them every 3 months. since we have been using this product it has been 4 months and she doesn't have horrible tarter build up. She also has urinary issues and it is great for that as well.
