Ingredients:We were delighted to see the first ingredient in these grain-free Greenies was chickpeas. We love it when the first thing item on the list isn't some mystery ingredient that leaves us scratching our heads. There's also the usual gelatin and glycerin, along with dried potato, natural poultry flavor, and a host of vitamins and minerals.
Usability:We've gotten dental treats for dogs in the past, but our smallest pups were never able to partake (even when we get the small size, the treats have always been too big). That's why we were thrilled to see this Teenie size!
Our product tester Vinnie weighs 7 pounds and he was able to chew on this easily and safely. The packaging says this size is for dogs 5 to 15 pounds, however I think you could safely give it to a dog as small as 3 or 4 pounds. I do think it's too tiny for my 11 pound dog, so I don't see the Teenie size being a good option for a pup as big as 15 pounds.
We've gotten many dental chews over the years, and they've all been hard. That's why we were curious to try these, since they're advertised as being flexible. And, sure enough, they are; you can bend them. The manufacturers says this unique texture allows the treat to contour so it cleans all the way down to the gum line when your dog sinks his teeth into it. Apparently that helps remove plaque and prevent further tartar build-up.
Origin:Made in the United States of America!
Cost:The 12-ounce, Teenie size bag has 43 pieces, so it'll last you quite awhile. At Chewy, the bag currently goes for $11.69 or you can get a 27-ounce box with 96 pieces for $25.34. The feeding instructions recommend one treat per day, so this is a very economical treat. (Below, Vinnie admires his good work and contemplates whether or not to eat the second half. He opted for yes.)
Rating:Since Greenies are proven to help your dog's dental health, it's a great treat to give your pup on a daily basis. The crew here loved the Greenie Teenies from Chewy! Four paws way up from Vinnie!
