Nutri Dent Minichews Dog Chews
(4 out of 5)
Nylabone’s NutriDent Mini-Chews make good canine dental health flavorful.
August 12, 2010 3:57 pm | By Zootoo Editor Flinn D.
NutriDent Mini-Chews, by Nylabone, are dog treats that are flavored with real gravy. They are in the shape of a mini-toothbrush with small bristles that stimulate dogs’ chewing. The treats are made of all-natural ingredients and also contain important vitamins such as thiamine and riboflavin.
The first time I gave our dog tester a Mini-Chew, he stared at it like a five-year-old staring at a plate of steamed broccoli. Had I stumbled on the dog equivalent?, I wondered. Could a Mini-Chew be a nutritious food that is completely unappetizing to dogs? After a few moments of licking, sniffing and pawing at the NutriDent, he tried his first bite. I was relieved when he took another, and then another. The second time I put NutriDent in front of his nose, he wasn’t nearly as hesitant.
It’s a good thing our tester developed a taste for NutriDent because the product’s nutritious qualities are unmatched in a crowded field of dog treats that claim to be both healthy and delicious. The all-natural formula contains vitamins that help maintain a healthy coat, promote good eyesight and fight plaque, and the previously mentioned bristles help stimulate dogs’ gums while satisfying their natural chewing instinct.
If your dog initially resists NutriDent because of its vitamin-packed taste, like mine did, try breaking it up into smaller pieces and feeding him those. It would be a shame for any dog to miss out on the nutritional benefits of this treat just because they don’t like eating their vegetables.
Pros: All-natural ingredients, packed with vitamins; help to stimulate gums.
Cons: At first sniff, dogs may be put off by the taste.

Our poodle swallowed a piece of this treat which lodged in her esophagus. It punctured the esophagus which caused leakage into her body. She died on the operating table. Please see article about greenies on cnn.com http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/02/14/dangerous.dogtreat/
Dangerous....do not use!
Cons: Does not digest if swallowed

I'm not sure if these really make their teeth cleaner or not, but my dogs really love them. I was skeptical if they would really eat them, because they are kind of picky. They seemed to really like them though.
Pros: Dogs love 'em
Cons: Kind of pricey
