OAK CREEK, WIS. — On Feb. 7, Stella & Chewy’s launched its new dental treats for dogs, called Dental Delights. According to the company, the product serves as a fun and engaging treat that has been clinically proven to help control plaque and tartar, supporting oral health.
According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, more than 80% of dogs show signs of some oral disease by age three. Additionally, dental disease is one of the most common medical conditions veterinarians see, according to Angie Krause, DVM, CVA, CCRT at Boulder Holistic Health and Stella & Chewy’s veterinarian partner.
“As a veterinarian, I strongly believe that with the right tools and knowledge, pet parents can help maintain their furry friend’s dental hygiene and can play a role in preventing oral health issues at home,” Krause said. “Just like the rest of the Stella & Chewy'’ portfolio, Dental Delights are made with high-quality ingredients and are a fun way for dogs to play and stay mentally stimulated.”
Stella & Chewy’s Dental Delights are specifically designed to roll and flip, providing dogs with additional stimulation while also promoting oral health. The treats consist of a ridge and nub texture to help with flossing and scraping. They also contain peppermint and parsley flakes to freshen breath and cage-free, freeze-dried chicken to provide flavor.
“At Stella & Chewy’s, we are always looking for innovative ways to promote pet health, whether it’s through food or preventative care,” said Rob Nelson, vice president of brand for Stella & Chewy’s. “We’re thrilled to enter the dental category with Dental Delights to give pet parents a treat that can show their dog love with its engaging design while also maintaining dental hygiene.”
Dental Delights are available in four sizes: extra-small, small, medium and large, with single-serve treats available in three sizes: small, medium and large. They will be available online and at select neighborhood pet stores throughout the United States beginning this month. The treats will also be available at Petco stores beginning in April.
