Dental disease is one of the most common conditions affecting both dogs and cats. Many pet owners question when or if their pet should be fed a special dental diet. While approved dental diets can help with plaque, it is the added chemicals in these foods which are binding to and facilitating the breakdown of plaque. I believe the healthier choice is for pet owners to choose a high quality natural diet—like Halo—which helps a pet avoid unnecessary chemical exposure and follow a regular dental health care routine. Read my article on proper dental health for pets.
Halo Spot’s Chew Natural Dental Treats are an excellent supplement to daily brushing to help maintain dental health while getting a little burst of flavor. As with all Halo treats, the Yummy Pumpkin and Minty Fresh Spot’s Chew are all natural dental treats with no artificial colors or flavors. The chews are enriched with calcium and omega fatty acids and contains no wheat gluten, corn or soy. Spot’s Chew is low in fat, however, it is not considered a low calorie treat so moderation is key! This chew is highly digestible, however, all dogs should be supervised while enjoying any chew treat and size guidelines should always be followed.
Halo’s other treats – Liv-a-Littles Protein Treats and the Healthsome Baked Treats – are low calorie healthy snacks that do not contain any added salt, sugar or molasses that may contribute to gum disease.
Although brushing your pet’s teeth is the best way to keep gums and teeth healthy, Halo has several offerings which can help you maintain good oral health in your pet.
