The Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC) has awarded its Seal of Acceptance to Greenies Dental Chews for both plaque and tartar control. The Seal of Acceptance is given only to products meeting the VOHC’s strict requirements of demonstrated efficacy in controlling plaque and/or tartar build-up.
Greenies dental chews are 100% edible which means that there isn't anything in it that your dog can't eat and enjoy!
Greenies dental chews are easy to digest and highly soluble (that means that they break down easily in the digestion process). The key to solubility lies in the proteins used to make the product. Greenies use 4 high-quality, easily digested proteins as the building blocks of this chewy recipe:
- Wheat protein isolate
- Soy protein isolate
- Sodium caseinate
This protein combination gives Greenies its irresistible chewiness and is the reason why the product will break down quickly in your dog's digestive system. In a simulated digestion test, a whole petite Greenies dental chew was reduced to absolute mush!
Greenies dental chews are 95.7% digestible - that's more than your average dry dog food (80-85%). That means that your dog's body can easily absorb and use all those good vitamins and minerals that have been added to the formula!
Breaking Up Is Easy to Do
Not only does the toothbrush have more nooks and crannies to clean teeth, it also has more natural break points to help a dog naturally chew it into small, easily-digested pieces.
It's All in the Chew
Last but not least, you can see how chewy the Greenies dental chew is. This chewy texture actually makes it easier for dogs to lovingly gnaw Greenies dental chews into delicious little bits that are easy to swallow and digest.
AVMA Studies show that 44% of the dog population is seven years or older. Dogs over 7 are more likely to suffer tooth and gum disease. Senior Greenies are more delicate on teeth and gums and contain Glucosamine and Chondroitin to support healthy joints. They're also fortified with antioxidants to boost and maintain a healthy immune system.

- Feed the correct size Greenies for your dogs weight 1-2 times daily as a treat.
- Greenies are not intended to be complete and balanced and therefore should not constitute more than 25% of your dogs diet.
- A greenish color in the dogs stool is a normal and harmless result of consuming chlorophyll, a key ingredient and natural breath freshener.
- As with any treat, monitor your dog to ensure the treat is adequately chewed and always offer water after feeding.
- If obesity is a concern, reduce food intake.
