Knucklebones For Dogs

Knucklebones For Dogs

Knucklebones seem to be the best form of dental exercise for the largest percentage of dogs. It’s a scrapey dental exercise that rarely breaks teeth, (Have seen one case so far, only) and it’s a bone that’s hard (but not impossible) to splinter.

Fact is, that ANY dental exercise that’s scrapey enough to remove tartar could break a tooth.

And any bone can splinter.

And it’s ALSO a fact that any scrapey or ‘bone’ dental exercise can blunt or wear the apices of the teeth to result in worn teeth in later years.

But again, scrapey dental exercise keeps the teeth and gums hard and healthy, dental tartar to a minimum and saliva production heightened.

Here’s the long-and-short on Knucklebones.
