massive treat giveaway we did just a few months ago? One of the few Zuke's items not included in that giveaway was their famous edible dental chews: the Z-Bone. Zuke's was generous enough to send us one 8 pack of their Carrot, medium-sized Z-Bones for our review, and will ship another 8 pack to our one lucky winner—in the size and flavor of their choice. The opinions that follow are 100% our own! Rest assured that our opinions cannot be swayed by one 8 Pack of dental chews...O.K., maybe by two packs. (Hehehe-just kidding!)
On to our review...Parental Unit is always looking for some relatively pleasant way to clean some of that tartar from my teeth, and it appears that she's found that in Zuke's edible dental chews. They come in sizes to fit every pooch and in a variety of flavors: Carrot, Berry and Apple.
Important Note: These chews are not recommended for dogs under 10 pounds or less than six months of age. And we strongly recommend that you supervise your dog from "start to finish" when he's working on Z-Bones or any other dental chew.
Since I weigh about 32 pounds and love carrots (I'm not into fruits), Parental Unit chose the "Regular Size" Z-Bones dental chews for dogs 25-60 pounds, in the "Clean Carrot Crisp" flavor.
Here's my very own 8 Pack.
You also know that Parental Unit doesn't eat anything herself, or feed anything to me, unless she's scrutinized the ingredient list using her reading glasses and near surgical level light source. The Z- Bone ingredients are potato and pea-based, and in our flavor, include carrots and pumpkin, plus Parsley, Alfalfa, Rosemary, Turmeric and Fennel. According to Zuke's information, the herbs "naturally freshen breath by supporting digestion."
Here I am about to receive my first Zuke's edible dental chew.
And when I get something I really like...I immediately run up to my "man cave" (under Parental Unit's bed) and start playing, or in this case chewing away.
Although Parental Unit did not officially document her observations, she believes that Zuke's Dental Chews did remove a decent amount of tartar from my upper and lower molars. I've had four of these chews so far and can safely rate them a four paws up! And because Parental Unit approves of the ingredients and sees how much I enjoy them (plus that tartar removal thing), she gives them an enthusiastic two thumbs up!
Now on to our giveaway!
