Which is better: Dentastix or Greenies?
I have two chihuahua-Xs. Brahma is 9 years old, 8lbs. Darshan is 8 years old, 12lbs. When I adopted them, both had dental problems, especially Darshan, and I've had to get his teeth cleaned by the vet a few times. This summer, his gums got so infected he had to have a couple teeth extracted. Luckily Brahma's teeth are not as bad, however I cannot have them cleaned because he has a heart condition and the anesthetics are too dangerous. So it's important I keep their teeth healthy!
I've tried raw hides and bones, but they don't like them! I tried various types and sizes, no luck. They will chew for no more than 30 seconds and lose interest. They don't like chew toys either. But they LOVE dentastix! They go nuts over them, and chew them until they are completely eaten up!
Is dentastix good for teeth cleaning, and is it healthy? I haven't tried Greenies yet, is it worth trying Greenies? Which is better for teeth cleaning and which is heathier?
