VOHC SEAL OF ACCEPTANCE
Checkups has earned the prestigious VOHC (Veterinary Oral Health Council) seal after extensive testing to prove its safety and efficacy.
REDUCES PLAQUE BY 25% AND TARTAR BY 62%
Plaque forms quickly on teeth and hardens into tartar slowly with accumulation, leading to dental disease. In a clinical research study, Checkups dental treats were fed to dogs one time per day after their meal and proven to reduce plaque by 25% and tartar by 62%. Although not as effective as twice daily brushing, feeding your dog Checkups is a much easier way to improve dental health.
HELPS FRESHEN BREATH
The first sign of dental disease is bad breath. The pliable texture of Checkups allows the teeth to sink in, effectively scraping the surfaces to remove plaque. This prevents the build-up of tartar, keeping teeth clean and breath fresh.
Healthy gums are an important part of dental health. Checkups are designed for teeth to sink down into the treat. This helps rub the surface of the tooth all the way to the gums applying gentle pressure to stimulate the gums.
CONTAINS OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS
Omega-3 fatty acids are important nutrients for controlling inflammation and supporting a healthy skin and coat. Having an additional source of omega-3 fatty acids in your dog’s daily diet like Checkups is beneficial for overall health and well-being.

*The facility in which this food is made also makes food that may contain other ingredients, such as wheat. Trace amounts of these other ingredients may be present.
