Dog Product Feature: DentaDish – “The Only Teeth Cleaning, Slow Feeding Dog Bowl” (Give-Away)

FROM DAKOTA’S DEN: I didn’t begin to test the bowl until a week before it was time to write this review. I received a DentaDish in exchange for my honest review, but noticed that I received a LARGE BOWL which  is recommended for dogs OVER 40 lbs. Dakota should have received a small.  (Dakota is under 30 lbs). He eats a much smaller quantity of food at each meal than a large dog would, so, I decided to share this bowl with you as a PRODUCT FEATURE as opposed to a PRODUCT REVIEW. (Receiving the wrong sized bowl is my fault and not the fault of DentaDish, I should have immediately looked at the size upon receipt, but I did not.) Because I didn’t have the right sized bowl to give a valid review, I did not want to mislead anyone by saying that this bowl works, when in fact with the wrong sized bowl, I cannot definitively say that it would without having tested it properly. I always want to be honest and upfront with all of you. I think the bowl looks fabulous and we will always share products that we HAVE USED AND LIKED, OR WOULD CONSIDER USING, OR THOSE THAT WE THINK WOULD INTEREST OUR READERS, EVEN IF WE HAVE NOT USED THE ITEM.

Let me tell you I am NOT a fan of going to the dentist! (This is the HUMAN talking!) I was just there a few days ago and spent a grueling 4 hours there! NOT fun! That being said, taking care of our teeth is extremely important, some dentist visits can’t be avoided, things happen, but some things CAN be avoided or managed with the proper care. The same is true for our pets.

I have always been an advocate of regular dental exams for my pets, starting with my first cat, who was genetically predisposed to having gum issues. My first cat had his teeth cleaned yearly.

Dakota had his first teeth cleaning at the Vet approx. two years ago, and a few months ago he had his second cleaning. I admit that when it comes to brushing his teeth, I am not as good as I should be. I am NOT alone.

From DentaDish:Oral hygiene for pets has often been looked at as a chore and is sometimes forgotten about completely. Many people don’t know that eight out of ten dogs show signs of oral disease by the age of three, and untreated dental disease can actually spread to a pup’s vital organs creating serious medical issues.

DentaDish is the easy to use, slow feeder bowl that actually cleans teeth while dogs eat. It helps prevent doggy dental and gum disease, which is the leading cause of many health problems including bad breath. Though typically dog breath isn’t taken as a serious problem, it is actually the most common sign of oral disease in dogs. DentaDish is the only dog bowl that is clinically proven to reduce the formation of plaque, tartar and gingivitis. Soft bristles on the inside of the bowl gently yet effectively clean teeth, slow down eating and help keep food in the bowl.

Slowing down a pet’s eating helps to reduce excess air intake and prevents bloating. Food bloat, or twisted stomach, occurs when a dog eats too quickly and gulps down a lot of air. The air turns into gas and causes the abdomen to swell, putting pressure on the heart, lungs, and other organs. Dogs who gulp down their food might also not feel satisfied which can cause over eating and begging. DentaDish’s soft bristles break up the bowls surface area, preventing dogs from being able to inhale their food. DentaDish can make mealtime last up to ten times longer compared to regular bowls.

DentaDish is made with food-safe materials and is both BPA and Phthalate free. The non-skid rubber bottom keeps the bowl in place, prevents spills and creates a firm grip on slippery surfaces. The durable, food-safe materials and co-molded construction make DentaDish safe for dishwashers. DentaDish comes in two convenient sizes and includes measurement lines (cups and grams) on the inside of the bowl to make sure the appropriate amount of food is served. The small size fits up to two cups of food and is recommended for dogs under 40lbs, while the larger bowl can fit up to four cups of food and is recommended for dogs over 40lbs.

DentaDish is the easiest most efficient way ever to feed dogs while helping to maintain good oral health and hygiene.

Mom & I Are Nervous

I keep hearing my Mom and Dad talking about something that is going to happen tomorrow that I KNOW isn’t going to be very much fun for me. Even if it IS good for me.

I am trying not to think about it but I just can’t get it out of my mind.

I have to go to the vet and see “Dr.Smiley” He is going to try to make me smile like HIM!

How?

I have to get my toothies cleaned.

Mom was lazy about doing it but “Dr.Smiley” said that even if she had done it that dogs like Shelties with narrow snouts (hey! stop making fun of my snout!!) tend to develop tartar. He said mine isn’t bad at all but it needs to be taken off.

Mom is nervous because on my last blood test my BUN numbers were a little off. (I don’t even EAT BUNS!!! I smell ’em, but I don’t eat ’em!!)

She has to go with me in the morning and try and collect some of my pee-pee in a container. (pretty rude to follow someone around with a container when they are peeing don’t you think?). She is nervous about that (she is nervous about EVERYTHING but this is her latest fixation)

Mom wants to know if any of you have ever had to bring your doggie’s pee to the vet?

Anyway, I’m not happy. I don’t get to eat after midnight.  The good part is Mom isn’t letting Cody eat either until my Dad gets me ready to leave. The bad part is we all have to listen to him caterwauling until we go. He is relentless about his food.

Enjoy the video Mom and I found. When I come home I am going to be good about brushing my teeth like this doggie is.

I would love it if you could try and calm my Mom down (I know that is a nearly impossible task but please try, ok?) The rest of us that live with her would appreciate it.

Catch ya on the rebound.

Barks and licks and love,

Dakota
