For Veterinarians


While clients are accustomed to brushing their own teeth every day, getting them to brush their dogs' teeth regularly can be a challenge. That's why we've created a new chew that's designed to reframe dog oral care in a relatable human context and help revolutionize oral care compliance.

New Milk-Bone® Brushing Chews are clinically proven to be as effective as brushing*. Designed to perform like a toothbrush and packaged in a toothpaste-looking box, they help reinforce the need for daily oral care. In addition, each Milk-Bone® Brushing Chews package reminds clients to keep their dogs' teeth clean by giving them one chew daily and a veterinary dental checkup annually.

*When fed daily, Milk-Bone® Brushing Chews are as effective as brushing a dog's teeth twice a week based on the reduction of tartar build up and halitosis. The VOHC recommends daily tooth brushing for optimal effectiveness.

As you'd expect from a 100-year-old trusted brand, Milk-Bone® Brushing Chews are widely available at an affordable price.
