This cute and cleverly designed dental mint stick will encourage your kitty to chew his or her way to fresh breath and better oral health. The real dried mint will entice your kitty as it is a cousin to their favorite--catnip! The crinkle sound in the leaf design on the ends will attract your cat's attention while the durable netting in the middle helps remove soft tartar. Your cat will also exercise their jaw muscles and gums by chewing on the soft, springy leaves on the ends. To refresh the mint smell, simply press and roll on the center stem.

Petstages Mint Stick provides both a breath freshener and an appealing toy.

December 6, 2010 6:22 pm | By Zootoo Editor AmyLi

The Petstages Mint Stick is a fantastic two-in-one deal and play option for a cat looking for a good time and for a quick breath-refresher, too. The four-and-a-half inch long, bendable stick, designed to look like an actual mint leaf, is stuffed with sweet smelling mint – a cousin of the coveted catnip. The stuffing also includes a crinkle material, which can be fun for cats and kittens to work through their paws or teeth. Covering the entire green stick is a soft mesh netting, which cats could catch with their teeth, but also serves a more practical purpose – it’s designed to help remove soft tartar.

These two tester cats – a 7-year-old mother and 3-year-old daughter pair – both were instantly intrigued by the mint stick, which releases a stronger, sweeter smell if you press its center. They loved batting the stick around between their paws, tossing it up in the air and chasing it after it landed a few inches from them. They would also hold it in their mouths, gnawing on it for a few minutes at a time, which can potentially help them clear up incidents of bad breath as well as taking care of issues of tartar. They didn’t focus on chewing on the stick, though, and were more focused on simply pawing it around the room. If kittens take to the toy, it can serve an additional purpose, helping them work through some unpleasant teething phases.

Good times were had for several days until one of the cats likely pushed it under some furniture or into a hidden crevice, never to be seen again. The toy is, after all, only four-inches long, and perhaps a half-inch in diameter.

Pros: Fresh mint smell and approachable size leads to exciting playtime.

Cons: The dental hygiene aspect of the toy can’t exactly be enforced; should not be a substitute for a regular dental cleaning or tooth brushing session.
