Vetoquinol Dentahex Oral Care Chews with Chlorhexidine for Dogs - Medium (18 oz)
After your pet finishes a meal, tiny food particles combine with bacteria to form plaque. Plaque, if not removed, eventually hardens into calculus or tartar, and can ultimately lead to periodontal disease. If left untreated, periodontal disease is the single greatest cause of health problems in pets. Regular veterinary check-ups and professional "dental cleanings" are an important first defense in controlling and preventing periodontal disease.
Routine home dental care is equally important in helping keep your pet and its teeth healthy. Simply brushing food debris and plaque from the teeth and gumline can greatly reduce the chance of tartar build-up, periodontal disease, and bad breath.
Dentahex Oral Care Chews are coated with Chlorhexidine gluconate. Chlorhexidine, along with the natural abrading action of beefhide, helps to remove plaque and prevent the buildup of tartar-forming bacteria.
Remember, your pet depends on you and your veterinarian for all its health care. Ask your veterinarian about the many different home oral care options available to you.
Active Ingredient: dentahex Oral Care Chews are coated with a 10% (w/v) solution of Chlorhexidine gluconate.
Puppy loves these! by Sunshine girl from Ohio11/06/2012
My puppy is quite the chewer and her vet recommended the Vet Solutions Dentahex because they clean the teeth and are gentle on the stomach. They are similar to a rawhide strip but better for the dog. My puppy loves these and they are so much less expensive at EntirelyPets than at the vet's office.
Perfect Chewie! by Leana Belle05/31/2012
Jake is around 3 years old and about 25 pounds. I get him the medium size chewies. He absolutely LOVES them! And, they are good for his teeth. Much more expensive at the Vet's office. Thank you for making this product available at a good price!
Quality Problem with the Mediums by PJR11/04/2011
When I first started buying the dentahex mediums online from EP, I was very pleased with the pricing and the quality. The past few orders have been terrible. After waiting weeks and weeks for backorders, when they arrived, I was shocked at the quality. There was still traces of dark fur and some were so thick, that my dogs got constipated when trying to pass it through their system. I had to give them mineral oil! I mention that some were thick, others pieces could have been used as toothpicks, they were so thin. All in one bag. This did not happen once (I order a lot of bags at a time), but it has happened 2-3 times over the course of several months. This is a good product in and of itself, but there needs to be a quality control factor built in, considering that these are being produced in Mexico.
