How do Bell & Bone's dental sticks work?

Dental sticks for dogs are created so that when the dog chews on them, plaque and tartar should be removed from the teeth. This can occur from being hard enough to scrape plaque from the surface of the tooth and with the assistance of active ingredients that are known to prevent and reduce plaque and tartar buildup. 

When a dental stick is just hard and contains no active ingredients only surface level plaque may be removed. This is definitely not the most effective way of caring for your dog’s oral health.

Most brands of dental sticks unfortunately do not contain active ingredients which may be the reason for high rates of dental disease in dogs. 

Bell & Bone Dental Sticks are one of the few Australian made dental sticks brands that contain active ingredients known to prevent and reduce plaque and tartar. Working with industry experts, Bell & Bone has included Sodium Tripolyphosphate and Zinc Sulphate in their range of dental sticks. These ingredients are a great inclusion for your dog's dental stick to provide them with optimal oral care. 

Are dental sticks good for dogs?

Bell & Bone Dental Sticks are quite different to most other brands in the market. Where they often include grains and fillers, preservatives, unnatural colours and flavours, sugar and salt. Our healthy dog treats are made with natural ingredients. Bell & Bone makes sure they have nothing of the sort included in their formula. 

Besides differentiating from other brands by including active ingredients known to prevent and reduce plaque and tartar, Bell & Bone Dental Sticks are also healthy and good for dogs.

They have a protein first ingredient like Kangaroo, Salmon, Chicken, Duck and Lamb and are grain, filler, sugar and nasty free. 

Bell & Bone Dental Sticks also include Mint and Parsley for fresher breath and a range of superfoods with natural oral health benefits for your dog. Manuka Honey to assist with bacteria, helping to fight against gum disease, Activated Charcoal is known to help whiten teeth and freshen breath, Seaweed can prevent and reduce plaque naturally and so on. 

Bell & Bone Dental Sticks¬†are full of natural vitamins and minerals such as protein, magnesium, iron, iodine, and omega-3 fatty acids. Our healthy dog treats come in 3 hypoallergenic flavours for allergies and sensitive tummies ‚ÄstKangaroo,¬†Salmon¬†and¬†Duck.¬†

We recommend reading the ingredient list before choosing your brand of dental sticks. 

Are dental sticks as good as brushing?

We recommend brushing your dog‚Äôs teeth daily as it is still the best thing you can do for your dog‚Äôs dental health. However, we understand that this is a challenge; therefore, dental sticks are a great replacement. They provide similar dental health benefits‚ÄĒ please note that not all dental sticks do this, but Bell & Bone does due to the active ingredients.

What are Bell & Bone's collagen sticks?

Bell & Bone Collagen Sticks are perfect for all aged and sized dogs and puppies. Collagen makes up 70-90% of a dog’s ligaments, tendons, and muscles however as dogs age this will naturally decline and potentially create joint and muscular issues. 

Bell & Bone Collagen Sticks help maintain greater levels of collagen in your dog’s body to promote healthier joints and reduce the risk of joint and osteo disease such as arthritis. 

Our collagen chews for dogs and puppies are perfect to give from 12 weeks old. With benefits for both puppies and adults, we recommend giving these daily for optimal care.

A note from our founder, Arianne:

Bell & Bone represents the change I want to make in this world. I want to help give dogs a healthier and happier life through food and I am fortunate to have this business that allows me to do so.

By working with experts to create wonderful products and through our partnership with RSPCA Victoria, I know that each day I am closer to my goal of changing the future of so many dogs' lives.
