This treat is not recommended for dogs with hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism. The active ingredient is Ascophyllum nodosum, which is a type of algae. As with all algae and seaweed, it contains iodine.
Ascophyllum nodosum works by being ingested, not by contact with teeth or friction. It is metabolized and changes the chemistry of the saliva, which works to soften hard tartar that forms on teeth. It is great for overall dental health. The last two pictures show the tartar (calculus) that either fell off or was able to be picked off of teeth after using Ascophyllum nodosum for a little over a month. I cannot guarantee the same results since every dog is different. Each 4 oz bag will contain just under 300 treats, which is enough for a one month supply for one dog. Considering how expensive a dental cleaning at the vet is, I think this dental treat is definitely worth a try.
You MUST BE CONSISTENT in giving your dogs 7-10 treats a day (for dogs up to 25 lbs). It will take AT LEAST a full month before you start to see any changes. This treat is not a substitute for brushing your dog's teeth. It is to be used in conjunction with regular teeth brushing.
Dental Chicken and Apple treats are very palatable, even for picky eaters.
I do not use any preservatives in my treats. Please follow the storage instructions listed below.
Organic USDA Grade A chicken breasts (human grade), with every bit of fat trimmed, from chickens that are hatched, raised and harvested in the USA, organic Fuji apples (core, stem and seeds removed), Ascophyllum nodosum, organic parsley, organic coconut oil, organic mint, gelatin, and prebiotic/probiotic blend for dogs.
These ingredients are minimally processed and dried at a temperature no higher than 160 degrees Fahrenheit to preserve as much of the nutrients as possible. These treats are slightly chewy.
