The Good: Healthy, Great dental benefit for dogs, Good ingredients, Low breakage factor
The Bad: Not Myah's first choice (when she is given one), Expensive, Not a great or distinctive scent
The Basics: Myah was initially intrigued by Purina Dentalife Daily Oral Care Dog Snacks, but that interest faded pretty fast . . .
When it comes to dog treats, my Siberian Husky does not care about changes in product lines or when I get her treats on clearance because a company has changed its focus. So, when I picked up the big bag of Purina Dentalife Daily Oral Care dog treats for Myah at our local grocery store because they were clearancing a bunch of their pet food lines, Myah was just happy to get something new. Or, at least, Myah was initially excited by these treats. But, variety does not last long with dogs. It did not take long for Myah to become entirely indifferent to the Purina Dentalife Daily Oral Care.
Myah tried the first two Purina Dentalife Daily Oral Care Dog Snacks eagerly, but it has been a chore getting her to try the other sixteen. In fact, it is only when our cat Elim makes moves to eat her treat that Myah will consume the Purina Dentalife Daily Oral Care dog snacks now.
We picked up the 20.7 oz. bag of Purina Dentalife Daily Oral Care Large Dog Snacks at our local grocery store on clearance for just under seven dollars - the eighteen treat bag would have cost more than thirteen before that! That is a bit expensive, though it is on par with dog treats for bigger dogs, like Myah.
The Purina Dentalife Daily Oral Care Dog Snacks dog treats are hard stick treat that is roughly cylindrical with fins for aiding in cleaning a dog's teeth. The very mealy dog treats are fairly textured and brown. Each tooth-cleaning treat is 4 1/2” long and 7/8” in diameter. The Purina Dentalife Daily Oral Care treats are hard enough that they help brush the dog's tongue and teeth when they chew them . . . but getting Myah intrigued enough to bite into one now is a tough sell.
Ease Of Preparation
The Purina Dentalife Daily Oral Care treats are a ready-to-eat dog treat and only requires one to open the bag to dispense. The bag is resealable to keep the treats inside fresh.
The Purina Dentalife Daily Oral Care Dog Snacks smell mealy and grainy, which is appropriate given that these are a grain-based treat. Myah ate the first two Purina Dentalife Daily Oral Care dog snacks eagerly, but she does not go for them anymore. I was pretty shocked, because the first treat worked amazingly well to clean off Myah's tongue and teeth. Even without a strong or distinctive scent, the Purina Dentalife Daily Oral Care did what they promised, but to get the dental benefits, a dog has to want to eat the treat. Myah tired of these after only two!
Purina Dentalife Daily Oral Care Dog Snacks dog treats are healthy-enough to recommend without any serious health detractions for the dog. With at least 6% crude protein, 2% crude fat and no more than 1.5% crude fiber and 15% moisture, the Purina Beneful Healthy Smile Dental Dog Snacks offer some decent nutrition to dogs. Made primarily of rice, wheat flour, and glycerin, Purina Dentalife Daily Oral Care Dog Snacks appear to have nothing bad in them. They do, however, have enough preservatives to make them last; ours would last until August 2017 if Myah decides to be finicky about them.
As with all dog treats, it is highly recommended that when you give your dog Purina Dentalife Daily Oral Care Dog Snacks, you make sure they have a decent supply of clean water available. Purina Dentalife Daily Oral Care Dog Snacks treats are not intended to replace dog food.
Myah is largely indifferent to Purina Dentalife Daily Oral Care Dog Snacks, though when she does eat them, they are very good for her!
