For our Chewy review this month we decided to review the VetriScience Perio Plus feline bites.
Pet dental health is a big issue. Our grandma actually brushes Izzo the dog's teeth. Mom says she isn't that brave....plus most of us here wouldn't cooperate for that. Which means we need a healthy alternative.
As some of you may remember, Tim was diagnosed with stomatitis (article by Cornell Vet) and ended up having most of his teeth pulled due to inflamed gums and infected teeth. If left unchecked, it could have had serious effects on his long term health. He got to keep his fangs, but our v-e-t suspects he may have to have those pulled at some point too.
Our friends at Playful Kitty wrote a great article about stomatitis and our friend Miss JaneA wrote an article about dental health for Catster.
Here's the thing....the bites were WAY big. And not very chewy. Which means basically no one ate them except Mozart and Spud. Spud had one and walked away. Everyone else sniffed them, licked them and were uninterested. Mom even tried breaking them into pieces (which was easier said than done) and no one was interested.
Mozart loved them....and played clean up crew eating every treat that no one else would touch.
So, while Mo certainly benefited from the treats...and will more than likely get the whole dang bag over time....it certainly isn't anything we will be buying for ourselves. Nice idea - bad implementation. Oh well, can't win them all.....
