Since February is Dental Care Month, Saphera and Purrseidon volunteered to help Chewy.com test dental chews/treats. They began with Health Extension Dental Dog Chew Though these are dog chews, Purrseidon seemed more excited about the Dental Bones than Saphera. (Fortunately, this was not a repeat of last month’s sweet potato treat fieasco.) When I opened the Health Extension Dental Dog Chew package, both were suddenly at my feet,
so I let Saphera sniff one. Purrseidon used my focus on Saphera as an opportunity to rush in and grab one. Poor Saphera was really concerned about this, until I gave her one, too … Purr seemed really unsure about Saphera having one, but let it pass. Though Purr frequently chews on her’s she doesn’t actually eat it. We often wonder if she thinks she is a cat-dog hybrid or something because half the time, she acts more like a dog then a cat … Seriously, how many cats have you met that bring you their leash, so you’ll take them for a walk and/or beg to play in water?!? For that matter, how many cats have their own life preserver, harness and leash?
These dental chews smell great and they feel kind of rubbery so I would recommend them to people whose dogs love rubber toys. Saphera, who is picky, seemed to like them which is a good thing, however she prefers the sweet potato treats. But I guess the point in dental treats is her dental health and I don’t think the sweet potato treats are good for dental hygiene. Since the Dental Dog Chews are more then just treats, they do not need to be an all-time-favorite reward.
I consider them to be medium size, which is why there is only one picture of Saphera eating one – the whole thing fit in her mouth and it took her about 5 minutes to finish it.
I do not recommend these for cats because they are designed for dogs, however, Miss Purr still has the one she grabbed and since she loves chewing on it, I have no intention of taking it away. I would love it if the company offered something similar for cats.
