Greenies satisfy your dog's natural desire to chew. The consistency/ingredients have been shown to help reduce odors, control dental tartar (calculus), strengthen gums and diminish oral bacteria.
Some chew products contain other inert materials which are not digestible. All ingredients in Greenies the original smart-treat are highly digestible and, except for the palatability enhancer, are used in human food products.
Greenies prevent buildup of dental calculus, are exceptionally palatable, highly digestible and improve digestibility of other foods.
A leading dental research group found that giving dogs only one Greenies daily almost totally prevented dental calculus accumulation. On a scale of 0 for no calculus accumulation to 45 for heavy calculus buildup, the dogs given one Greenies daily scored an average of 3.3 compared to 26 when Greenies were not given. Statistically, this is a highly significant (<0.0001) decrease in calculus accumulation. Greenies dental attributes were developed primarily as a maintenance program for a dogs' teeth following cleaning by a veterinarian.
A study conducted by a leading nationally-know, highly respected, independent third-party testing research kennel, proved that most dogs prefer Greenies. When given a choice, 70% of dogs in the study preferred Greenies to a leading commercial chew treat. All dogs - 100% - preferred Greenies to a leading rawhide chew treat.
The same nationally-know lab also found that in addition to Greenies being highly digestible, feeding Greenies with other foods actually increases digestibility of those foods. Their research showed a blend of just 10% Greenies and 90% dry food increases protein digestibility in the food from 78.1% to 85.5% - a 10% increase. Digestibility of fat, calories, dry matter also increased. This ensures that your pet obtains maximum nutrition from its diet; in fact, your dog can obtain the same level of nutrition from less dry dog food when Greenies provided, so we recommend that you decrease the amount of dog food provided by 5-10%.

Greenies® Feeding Directions
Greenies® are recommended for dogs over 6 months of age and over 10 pounds Feed the correct size Greenies® for your dog’s weight 1-2 times daily as a treat. Greenies® are not intended to be complete and balanced and therefore should not constitute more than 25% of your dog’s diet. A greenish color in the dog’s stool is a normal and harmless result of consuming chlorophyll, a key ingredient and natural breath freshener. As with any treat, always offer water after feeding.
As with any edible product, monitor your dog to ensure the treat is adequately chewed. Gulping any item can be harmful or even fatal to a dog.
