Why dental sticks are an essential daily component of your dogs diet
Did you know… that by age 3,
4/5 dogs will have gum or dental disease!?
This is WHY Bell & Bone developed their dental sticks! We aim to reduce the buildup of gum disease in dogs, promote whole mouth health and give your dog the best chance of optimal health. Our dental sticks deter plaque, fights tartar, promote healthier gums and are grain free!
Bell & Bone Dental sticks were developed with a vet scientist. They contain active ingredients(STPP and Zinc Sulphate) to work together to capture the calcium in the dog’s mouth, in order to prevent and reduce up to 80% of plaque and tartar when given daily.
Sodium Tripolyphosphate is able to bind directly to the enamel, interacting with calcium in the dogs’ mouth to prevent it being able to form crystals (or plaque). It also helps prevent stains on teeth and can be easily digested when ingested. Text
Zinc Sulphate inhibits the growth of bacteria by binding to the teeth to control plaque formation. In doing this, it will assist in reducing the odour of bad breath. This works together with for the greatest impact on the teeth and gums. Text
Dental care is so important is because if unattended, it can turn into health complications in other parts of the body beyond teeth and gums. Most commonly, it turns into gingivitis with symptoms such as bad breath, swollen gums, yellow teeth. If you notice any of these symptoms, we recommend seeing a vet before the disease or infection goes into the blood stream.
Plaque is a soft, sticky film that builds up on your teeth and contains millions of bacteria. Plaque develops when foods containing carbohydrates (sugars and starches) are frequently left on the teeth.
Tartar is a yellow or brown coloured deposit that forms when plaque hardens on your teeth. Because tartar build-up on teeth is strongly bonded to the tooth enamel, it can only be removed by a dental professional.
