    Promising review: "My German Shepherd puppy at 6 months needs all the chews he can get. You can see he loved it in the photos. His tail wagged the whole time he happily chomped away. I love all the Blue Buffalo products. But these bones compelled me to share my dog's delight." —Gloria Plymale

    2. Rachael Ray Nutrish Smoochies made from a unique shape to help assist with cleaning tartar, plaque, and will also supply fresher breath with their minty flavor.


    Promising review: "My mom's Shih Tzu came for a visit and when straight to the toy box, pulled it out and went to town. He's a voracious chewer and made short time of these. He has a particularly finicky stomach and this didn't bother him at all. They really do help to freshen their breath as there was a noticeable difference in is notoriously harsh breath... he's a short-nosed mouth-breather." —JLES

    3. Milk-Bone Brushing Chews with a patented design that helps maintain healthy gums and freshen breath. They feature 12 essential vitamins and minerals and feature no artificial flavors! Your pup will go crazy for these!, Amazon

    Promising review: "So we have this Great Pyrenees puppy and he likes to chew. He chews furniture, molding, books, hands, shoes, rugs, beds, toys, homework, you name it he's chewed it. In many ways he is a professional chewer. He eats, sleeps, and chews things up. He is indeed the perfect candidate to test out the Milk-Bone Brushing Chews Daily Dental Dog Treats. And let me tell you these things are a huge hit with the Pyrenees. Usually when we give him a dog treat he will grab it, and then lay down for good chew. Not so with the Milk-Bone Brushing Chews. He takes these things are runs with them. He wants to get away from society and protect his beloved prize while he enjoys a private chew. He LOVES these things!" —Amazon Reviewer

    Price: $17.45 (available in large-sized treats)

    4. Petstages Dog Chewable Stick Toy — the taste and texture of real wood that's BBQ flavored and will help massage for healthier gums! This is also super durable for tough chewers!

    Promising review: "My bulldog loves these wooden chew toys. A few months ago she started acting up and eating the wood siding shingles off of the house and part of our Jacuzzi deck. We would fix it and it would happen again. She had a lot of toys so we knew she was not just bored. I asked our dog trainer what to do and he suggested we give her sticks as toys since she seems to like chewing wood. We tried that, but the sticks would get broken or thrown away by the gardeners. So, when I came upon this real wood toy I had to try it. It is amazing! She loves it and she has not chewed any wood off of the house since we got the first one about a month ago. I just came back to buy a second one so she can have her favorite toy inside the house too. She is so happy with it!" —Amazon Reviewer

    Price: $5.99+ (available in four sizes and various flavors)

    6. Oxyfresh Premium Pet Dental Care Solution — as simple as adding the necessary amount of solution into their water bowl and *BAM* cleaner, healthier teeth! It works for numerous pets as well including dogs, cats, birds, and more!,

    Promising review: "This is a great product. I have four cats and a dog and I know that taking care of their teeth is a huge priority. Sadly, I lost my favorite cat and my best friend to periodontal disease a few years ago. I’ve always been serious about keeping my pet’s teeth clean ever since then. But have you ever tried to brush a cat’s teeth??? Yeah, you get me? It’s quite a feat. It’s a bit easier to brush my dog’s teeth but he still puts up a bit of a protest. This water additive makes dental care so much more convenient!!! You just add the specified amount of product to your pet’s drinking water and that’s it! It works just as well as brushing their teeth and it helps protect from periodontal disease. It has no scent or flavor to it so your pets wont even know that it’s there." —Jamie Bowman

    Price: $9.95+ available in four sizes

    7. Dog Chew Toothbrush Teeth Cleaning Toy made from 100% natural rubber that's nontoxic and eco-friendly. The durable and aligned bristles inside the brush help clean dental plaque which can hide in the corners of their mouth, remove it and prevent decay.


    Promising review: "I got this product yesterday and so far am very impressed with its quality. It feels solid and durable, even for my avid toy destroyers. It’s super cute, and the boys seem to like it. When I put toothpaste or peanut butter on it yesterday they would go straight to licking it off, but today started taking turns picking it up and chewing on it for short periods of time. My standard schnauzer is obsessed with holding it and keeps stealing it from our boxer/Dane mix." —JK

    Price: $19.99

    8. A Pet Qwerks Barkbone Stick, perfect for aggressive chewers who can rip through anything. This toy has a minty flavor to assist with smelly breath and also has sodium copper chlorophyll to boost their dental health.


    Promising review: "My dogs absolutely adore this bone! I have a tough chewer who has never been able to get through Pet Qwerks bones, so I love this company. The BarkBone has no smell from what I can tell, but the dogs still go crazy every time. It is so durable and great for any breed. We got the large bone, and all of my dogs, from my 10 lb maltipoo to my 140 lb Great Dane, love to chew on it. Especially our medium sized mutt! What I love most about these bones is that they are so easy for the dogs to hold and don’t break off in little chunks that could potentially be easy to swallow. They last a lifetime and are truly amazing bones!" —Janece Pool

    Price: $9.99+ (available in two flavors and three sizes)

    9. Pedigree Dentastix Treats for large dogs that are clinically proven to reduce plaque and tartar buildup. Your pup will be grinning from ear to ear after chomping on this yummy chicken-flavored treat.

    Amazon, / Via

    Promising review: "Our dog Maya enjoys a half piece daily after her first trip outside. She is a Cairn Terrier mix and is under 20 pounds, so the recommended amount is one half a piece. We have had her for three years, since we rescued her as a 1-year-old. She loves her morning treat and usually chews it all immediately. She has very little tartar on her teeth for a 4-year-old dog. I believe this is due to her daily treat of Pedigree Dentastix. She enjoys all three flavors." —Phyllis Campbell

    $8.99+ (available in four flavors and four treat pack sizes)

    10. VetSmart Formulas Dog Breath Freshener where a few sprays will get their yucky breath in check. With no harsh chemicals or alcohol, this freshener's blend of human-grade ingredients will be everything you need, without having to actually brush their teeth.

    Promising review: "This spray really works!! I recently went to my vet and asked her to check my dog’s teeth because of stinky breath. His teeth were perfect, so she suggested I use the total oral care spray by VetSmart Formulas as a breath freshener for my dog. I bought it shortly after and I’m SO glad that I did! I noticed a difference immediately after the first spray. Now we can get close to him without having to worry about the stinky breath smell!! It’s super easy to use and I’m recommending it to all my friends with dogs." —Neza Nutrition

    Price: $18.95+

    11. Arm & Hammer Twisters treats with a taste that dogs love, with the ingredients you'll love as a pet owner to keep their breath bearable. These are a great rawhide alternative that's safer, healthier, and tastier!


    Promising review: "Both of my bullies love these!!! They get excited when the jar opens and start to drool. The jar has a nice carry handle, which a nice bonus. Their scent is a mix of meaty and minty, with neither scent being overpowering. That scent is kinda what their breath ends up as...I would say it more neutralizes their breath than freshens it. It's not a miracle minty breath maker but it does a good job at making their breath tolerable and neutralized." —F. Todd

    Price: $4.99

    12. Old Mother Hubbard Natural Dog Treats – an oven-baked treat with quality oatmeal, chicken, apples, and carrots for a taste they'll love. These minty-fresh biscuits taste yummy and will also keep their teeth fresh fresh fresh!


    Promising review: "I bought the minty fresh breath and the tartar control and my dogs love them. Only thing I didn't realize was how big they were so I have to break them up for the little guy. He's a Yorkie." —Nette90

    Price: $7.99+

    13. H&H Pets Dual Headed Finger Toothbrush you can quickly pop on to give their teeth some good 'ol scrubbin'. The bristles on the brush are soft enough to clean their chompers safely and effectively.

    Promising review: "Our 15-year-old Jack Russell terrier has needed some plaque removed from her teeth and she tolerates the small brush really well. We introduced her to the toothpaste first by putting some on the brush and letting her lick the toothpaste off to get used to the taste and then we gradually introduced the brush with toothpaste to her front teeth and after about a week we're able to gently brush nearly all of her teeth." —Amazon Reviewer

    Price: $5.99+ (available in four or eight pack)

    14. Ark Naturals Brushless Toothpaste Chews since sometimes trying to physically brush their teeth is a no-go... Opt for these patented toothpaste soft center chews. These feature natural ingredients such as chlorophyll, cinnamon, vanilla, and clove.


    Promising review: "I used to buy these from a local pet store, but started buying from Amazon, because they are a bit cheaper and I can subscribe and get automatic shipments. I have two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. I get the medium size and cut them in half. They each get one half per day. Both of my dogs love these. I am enclosing pictures of their teeth. They both have a tiny bit of tartar on their back molar, but overall look pretty good. They do not have smelly breath and this product doesn't stink like some other similar products." —Eileen Childs


    15. A Qdan Toothbrush Squeaky Toy that'll have them so excited to play, they won't even realize the benefits it supplies their teeth. You can spread peanut butter or dog toothpaste in between the rows of nubs for an additional clean!

    Promising review: "We bought the small for our 3 lb puppy. He inhales his food at 3 months old and this slows him down nicely when we put his puppy kibble under the little rubber knobs. Giving him a snack on a road trip was very handy. Doubles to keep his baby teeth clean." —KWarde

    Price: $14.99

    16. And a BarkBox Bright Toothpaste & Toothbrush Chews Kit your furry friends will love (and you'll be so happy with when their teeth look and smell fresh.) The X-shaped toothbrush chew is specially made to remove buildup of plaque between and around your pet’s teeth while the enzymatic toothpaste breaks down problem-causing debris helping to refresh their breath and protect against harmful dental disease.


    Promising review: "I love the ease of using this product. A couple of months ago, I bought some toothpaste and a brush for my dog, but it has been really difficult to get her to sit still for brushing. I've basically given up on that. With these treats, however, she can do the work herself, which she much prefers. We just started using the treats and paste, so time will tell how effectively they keep plaque under control. Our pup seems to love the taste and is eager to have the treats any time, and hopefully they will help keep her healthy and happy." —P. Duncan

    Price: $35
