Milk-Bone Brushing Chews™ for your Doggy {Review}

Milk-Bone Brushing Chew (4)

I am not the only one who benefits from being a blogger, Jenny the Pug is also being able to benefit from the product samplings this month! Recently we received a box of Milk-Bone Brushing Chews™ for the sweet Pug in our life.

When we adopted Jenny the Pug a couple of years back, we found out that her teeth were not taken care of very well. Right now it’s a choice of keeping up the best we can with her teeth because dental hygiene is important for your pets. Luckily, Jenny’s teeth issues are not anything negatively affecting her health and we have been lucky to find products like these to assist in dental upkeep. This is why when I was pitched to test out Milk-Bone Brushing Chews™, I said YES PLEASE.

These boxes for storage of the Milk-Bone Brushing Chews™ are perfect, you can buy them in these boxes based on what size dog you have, for us we have received both options of the mini and the small/medium sizes. Jenny is more under the mini sized because she weighs about 17lbs.  I love that the bags inside of these boxes pictured above have a Velcro closure rather than any other options I have seen with various dog treats in the past, I am resting easy knowing that the Milk-Bone Brushing Chews™ are staying fresh in the box.

Jenny the Pug will sit for any treat, usually. Shown above she is not-so-patiently seated and waiting for me to release her the Milk-Bone Brushing Chews™, which I did. I just had to tease her for a moment with a treat to picture for you all what she looks like when she is ready for her yummies! Jenny quickly grabbed the treat as soon as I let her know she could and away she ran into her human sisters bedroom to munch on her Milk-Bone Brushing Chews™.

I say the dog gives Milk-Bone Brushing Chews™ two paws up, what do you think?

Milk-Bone Brushing Chews™ have a twist & nub design clinically proven as effective as brushing your dogs teeth, please use these daily to ensure they truly help with dental hygiene. Milk-Bone Brushing Chews™ dental treats come in a package designed to be reminiscent of a toothpaste box. Each product package features a recommendation for annual veterinary dental check-ups and the VOHC’s recommendation of daily brushing for optimal effectiveness, as well as the support of the VOHC Seal of Acceptance. There are currently two sizes of these available for sale in your local grocery store pet aisle; Mini, for dogs 5-24 pounds; and Small/Medium, for dogs 25-74 pounds, as well as a value size box.

CLOSED Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser, Flosser for Kids Review with Travel Flosser Giveaway

I am only giving away the Travel Flosser from Waterpik so please don’t mind the title – I am reviewing the Waterpik Ultra Flosser and the Waterpik Water Flosser for Kids only.

The Waterpik® Ultra Water Flosser, is perfect for those who do not like to floss – it is easy to use and only takes about a minute a day to start improving gum health. It utilizes pulsating water to clean deep between teeth and below the gumline where traditional brushing and flossing can’t reach, and it’s been clinically proven to be even more effective than traditional string floss.

New this year, is the Waterpik® Water Flosser For Kids, specially designed for kids ages 6-12. It is the newest tool to help parents ensure that their children are taking good care of their teeth. It features the technology of a traditional Water Flosser unit, and recent studies have shown that it removes 99.9% of plaque from treated areas and is more than three times as effective as string floss for cleaning around braces.




The new Waterpik® Traveler is perfect for on-the-go oral care. It is smaller in size compared to the Waterpik® Ultra Water Flosser countertop unit, but features the same pulsating water technology that cleans deep between teeth and below the gumline where traditional brushing and flossing cannot reach. The Traveler also features an automatic voltage switching power supply and extra pin adapter for international use and easily compacts to fit into a premium soft sided travel case.

My daughter really enjoys the water flosser over the traditional floss because it’s fun for her and now I am excited that she has a kids version to use all by herself!

Getting Your Kiddos to the Dentist: Tips from a Riverside Pediatric Dentist

Wrestling your kids into the dentist office is never fun. Not only are you dealing with their anxiety, but you also wind up dealing with your own embarrassment as other waiting patients watch your kids throw tantrums. However, there are a few quick tips to make your dentist office visit easier that a recently interviewed Riverside Dentist recommends:

Choose a Pediatric Dentist

I always thought a dentist was a dentist; however, there are individuals who specialize in the oral care of kiddos – the pediatric dentist. According to the dentist interviewed, you always want to choose a pediatric dentist for your kids because they will “cater to a child’s needs which makes it a more comfortable environment, and they are also able to address specific dental needs and concerns that children have.”

Find the Right Dentist

Don’t ever sign up with the first dentist available. You always want to check a dentist out prior making an appointment with him or her to make sure that he or she will provide the comfort and care your child needs. The interviewed dentist suggested finding “someone that is active in the community.” Children are more likely to trust someone they have seen before, and when they trust their dentist they are more comfortable during their visit.

It’s also a good idea to find a dentist that offers fun things for children to help ease worried minds. Things such as a prize box, video games, and movies are all excellent things for a pediatric dentist office to have.

Educate Your Kids Before Their Visit

The number one source of fear and anxiety for a child before a dentist visit is simply not knowing what to expect. Take the time to educate your kids about a trip to the dentist prior to an appointment. The interviewed dentist suggested reading them “The Berenstain Bears Visit the Dentist” or other literature the night before to sooth nerves.

Regardless, of how you decide to prep your child for their dentist office visit remember to always remain positive. Even if you have had negative experiences at the dentist’s, immediately scaring your children will only make life harder on you, and will most likely prevent them from maintaining good oral hygiene in the future.
