Regular dental care should be considered as a regular part of your dog’s routine health maintenance. Your dog has specific needs, and maintaining good oral health contributes positively to his overall well-being. Your veterinarian may suggest a professional cleaning and daily tooth brushing. Purina® DentaLife® can also be a part of this daily routine as its dental efficacy tests have scientifically proven to reduce the amount of tartar build-up on the surface of dogs’ teeth.

Purina® DentaLife® works thanks to mechanical action, which promotes chewing and physical “brushing” on the surface of teeth. The combination of product texture, shape and dimension of the chew allows it to clean even the hard to reach teeth at the back of your dog’s mouth, where teeth are naturally more vulnerable to plaque and tartar build-up. As part of a daily routine, Purina® DentaLife® dental efficacy tests have scientifically proven to reduce the amount of tartar build-up on the surface of dogs’ teeth.

Because the chew slows the accumulation of plaque and tartar, you may notice less yellowish tartar build-up and improved breath with regular use of Purina® DentaLife® chews. 

Dental efficacy studies have demonstrated significant beneficial effects of Purina® DentaLife® products when feeding one stick daily for a period of 28 days. 

In these studies, significant beneficial effects were also observed in two teeth categories located in the back of the mouth (premolars and molars) - even though it may be more difficult to check these teeth by dog owners, there is a positive mechanical action on those teeth. 

My dog has bad breath, how could this product help? 

Bad breath is one of the first signs that something could be wrong. Bad breath happens when the mouth experiences tartar build-up, leading to bad bacteria metabolism which produces odourant compounds. When used daily, this product helps to reduce plaque and tartar build-up, thus will help to reduce the bad breath phenomenon as well. 

If you’re unsure about your pet’s dental health or have any questions, speak to your vet for further information and advice. 

  • • Vitamin D, Calcium and Phosphorus help maintain your dog’s strong teeth as they encourage bone metabolism - and a strong jaw bone leads to the maintenance of strong teeth.
  • • Vitamin A helps cell proliferation and renewal, this is particularly good during growth and also to maintain the integrity of oral tissues.
  • • Vitamin E is an important nutrient which supports healthy cell function

We recommend to start giving this to dogs that are one year of age or older.

Purina® DentaLife® can be fed once a day, at any time of the day, as part of your dog’s regular dental routine. Follow directions on label for recommended feeding amount and guidelines: One stick per day.

Our chews contains less than 10% daily extra calories which your dog will quickly eliminate after a small walk, so it is not necessary to reduce his main meal.

Some bleeding might occur - that may mean that your dog has gingivitis. If your dog experiences any oral changes like this, we advise you to check with your vet the severity of this gum inflammation. Your vet will advise you if a dental cleaning is required or if you can continue to use dental chews.

Dogs are considered senior after seven years old. Purina® DentaLife® is suitable for them if the dog still has good teeth and is able to chew properly.
