Milk Bone Brushing Chews Review & Giveaway**Closed**

I have a really great product from Milk Bone for your dog to try called Brushing Chews Daily Dental Treat that I think they will love! I know Charlie loved his, but of course, he played with it for a good while before he actually tried to eat it! Charlie is a Yorkie and I don't know if it's a Yorkie thing or it's just him, but he plays with his treats before he eats them!
Here are some main facts about the Brushing Chews:
•  Easy solution for daily oral care, clinically proven as effective as brushing*
•  Patent-pending dental twist with nubs and ridges designed to clean like bristles on a toothbrush
•  12 essential vitamins and minerals, including calcium for strong bones and teeth
•  Veterinary Oral Health Council Seal of Acceptance for tartar control
*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. The Veterinary Oral Health Council recommends daily tooth brushing for optimal effectiveness.
They sent us a box of the Mini's and the Small/Medium and for Charlie, he liked the Mini's the best. They were easier for him to get his mouth around and just the right size. We even have to cut up his other really soft treats because he doesn't like big pieces. So, even his Sweet Potato Fries get chopped into small bite size pieces. For some odd reason, he has an aversion to big portions.
As you can see from the progression of the pictures, he was licking the Brushing Chew and just rolling it around for a good bit before he actually decided to go ahead and chew on it. Charlie would not open his mouth or "smile" for me, so you won't be seeing his teeth! He never has done that except for when we are playing tug of war with his Frisbee.

He was in a lazy mood this day and we couldn't hardly get him out of bed, he was that comfy and feeling quite lazy. We have a Sleep Number bed and he likes my side the best because mine is ALOT lower than Mike's number.

The Milk Bone Brushing Chews are fortified with 12 essential vitamins and minerals, including calcium for strong bones and teeth. These treats have been shown to reduce tartar buildup in dogs if given to them daily. The unique dental twist bone is designed to help clean even hard to reach back teeth and down to the gum line.
Remember that they are good for:
  • Milk-Bone® Brushing ChewsTM were developed to transform at-home dental care for dogs, so that now your dog to brush his own teeth every day – just like you!
  • When fed daily, Milk-Bone® Brushing ChewsTM are clinically proven to be as effective as brushing your dog’s teeth twice per week based on the reduction of tartar build-up and bad breath
  • Milk-Bone® Brushing ChewsTM feature a specially designed 75 degree twist that helps the brushing nubs reach down to the gum line, even cleaning hard-to-reach back teeth
  • Milk-Bone® Brushing ChewsTM are clinically proven to reduce tartar build-up, as well as freshen your dog’s breath, bringing you and your dog closer together
  • Milk-Bone® Brushing ChewsTM are so effective that they have earned the trusted Veterinary Oral Health Council’s (VOHC) Seal of Acceptance, similar to the American Dental Association (ADA) seal seen on human dental products

    Directions for feeding:
    Feed one treat per day for dogs from 5-24 lb as part of a healthy diet. (Not suitable for dogs less than 5 lb, greater than 24 lb, or dogs less than 6 months of age.)
    I was really surprised that Charlie took to these so well because as you know, he is very picky and we have had a hard time getting him to eat any kind of treat, so this was a major breakthrough for us. I figure if a dog as picky as him will give it a shot, then your dog will probably be a pushover if they love everything.
    Charlie even carries one to bed with him at night for some odd reason. He won't eat it until the net day, but he won't go to bed without it laying right beside him. He used to do that with his Sweet Potato Fries. I am not sure if he thinks he will get stranded in there or what. The door is always left open so I can't explain it but if Mike doesn't double check the bed when he gets up in the mornings, the potatoes will fall either underneath the bed or at the foot and I have found anywhere from 2 to 5 potatoes on the floor! So, he's not eating them, just hording them for some reason, I guess.

    Milk Bone has several other treats for your dog depending on what they like and what size they are. Check them out to see which ones you think that your dog might like to try. You just might get surprised like we were when Charlie accepted the Brushing Chews!
