N-Bone Pearly Whites

Benji enjoys chewing on Pearly Whites. I have 6" 3.7 oz.type. If left to himself, Benji would chew an entire pearly white in one sitting. I allow him just about 5 minutes of chew time every other day on it. I monitor his time and chewing, if he is going vigorously at it, I take it away sooner as he manages to eat quite a lot in a short time. The package doesn't mention any prescribed " dosage" for amount or time.

I really like the product very much as it keeps his teeth clean and breath fresh. Does anyone here use Pearly Whites? How do you monitor the use? I would appreciate your comments.

Here's the link to the manufacturer and the retailer from where I order them.

Mine don't like them Everyone was raving about them a while ago, so I bought them. They're still sitting on the floor in one piece.

My dogs all get a whole Pearly White every weekend, and it is gone in less than ten minutes. I give them the smallest ones, but on my next order, I'm going to get the larger size.

Kristin told me that she just moved up to the extra large size for Carlito and then she throws it away when he gets it down to a nub so he doesn't choke on it.

Kimberly,
I think it's a great idea to make a rouitne of it on the weekend. I guess if your gang is getting an entire pearly white, and Benji's dad, Lito, is chomping on extra large one, then Benji is fine with entire 6" once a week.

Do you give anything else to chew them during the week? I give Benji something different everyday like small bits of Duck jerkey, Dingo chicken chewstick, CET chew hide (recommended by Dr. Hogan).

Thanks,
Best,

Hi guys!

Poornima, as Kimberly mentioned, Lito goes through 4-5 of the large ones a month, so I moved up to extra large and he LOVES it! It takes him about 1 week to get through the big bone. I check the bone periodically throughout the day, and when it gets too close to the last "knub" by the end of the week(Lito chews from one end to the other) where it could pose a choking hazard, I discard it.

I think it is part of the reason that his teeth are so white, the other part being that I brush them every night

The jumbo may seem overwhelming, but I think they pose a lower choking hazard as he can't get his whole mouth around the ends.

~Kristin

BTW Benji is looking super handsome!

Michele,
Perhaps, your gang is good at getting their teeth brushed. Benji HATES teeth brushing. I have tried all the tricks and tips everybody suggested but it didn't work. He is quite picky about smells and flavors and my bathroom cabinet is full of unused doggy toothpastes of various flavors! I wish there was one toothpaste flavor that he liked. He also hates the sticky consistency.

Best,
Poornima

Kristin,
Well, looks like Benji is following in his dad's footsteps where the Pearly Whites are concerned, if only I could get him to like teeth brushing too . What toothpaste do you use?

Benji's teeth are amazingly white too. Thanks entirely to Pearly Whites!

Thanks,
Best,

Pic of Lito, a playmate and his pearly white

Here is a picture my girlfriend took on Monday of our boys playing, the pearly white is in the photo for size reference :-)

BTW her Papillon puppy is just under 4 lbs to give you an idea

I don't brush their teeth. My vet said to just use a plain gauze pad and erub their teeth with it. He said dogs don't know about toothpast, it's a human thing. Using the gauze pad has worked great. It is slightly abrasive and if they have any tartar, it comes right off.

I use the enzyme toothpaste that Kimberly recommended (I can't remember the name, I would have to go look downstairs). It is beef flavor, it only takes 2 seconds to put on their back teeth, and it seems very effective

~Kristin

~PS It is a special toothpaste just for dogs
