here’s another fun #chewyinfluencer review! a couple months ago, we got the @merrickpetcare Fresh Kisses Dental Chews to review, so this month we decided to try the Greenies Dental Treats! i’ve heard loads of great reviews for the Greenies, so i went into this optimistic...UNTIL, i noticed that the first ingredient is wheat! so is the secondif your dog is fine with wheat, and you don’t mind feeding it, that may not be a red flag for you! but, my dogs thrive best on a grain free diet! with that being said, the ingredients list for Greenies is MUCH longer (though it does boast its natural contents) than the simple 3 line ingredient list on the Merrick alternative. now, as far as effectiveness, it’s a bit hard to tell. severus has clean teeth and scentless breath to begin with, but i will say that they both seem to do their job as far as i’m aware. although, if your dog gets major build up like one of my elder ones, these alone aren’t meant to fix that, but they can help prevent it (along with brushing regularly)! all in all, this is one of the few times i’d have to say i don’t totally recommend this product! while Greenies seem to have a more well known name and are cheaper, if you can afford it, i’d recommend the Merrick alternative. and look, you all know i love Merrick, but this isn’t biased. as a canine nutritionist, my loyalty lies with what is going to be healthiest, and in this case, i feel that the Fresh Kisses have a bit of an upper hand. BUT, with that being said, i’d still give Greenies a 4 of 5 stars, as they’re not bad at all, and are a slightly more affordable option!
