BARK teamed up with Novozymes to create Bright Dental, “an innovative triple-enzyme daily toothpaste and chew" that makes brushing your dog's teeth a lot easier than usual.
There's no better way to describe love than when your pupper comes running up to you and covers you in slobbery kisses. They're lovely and make you feel great, except that, at times, their mouth stinks. That's not really a good sign, and no matter how much you try to get them to sit still while you try to brush their teeth, it's just not happening. They move around way too much and then you just give up. BARK, the dog lovers behind the dog toy subscription service BarkBox, recently discovered that over 80% of dogs develop gum disease by the time they are three years old.
This is not something to be taken lightly because of gum disease and poor dental health can go on to cause other health problems in pups. One way to fight this problem is to brush their teeth regularly and we know that's not easy. BARK even found through a recent survey that 69% of dog parents have never attempted to brush their pet’s teeth. To make this task seem a little more accessible, BARK teamed up with Novozymes to create Bright Dental, “an innovative triple-enzyme daily toothpaste and chew,” according to a press release from BARK. No, you don't need to wrestle with your pup to brush their teeth.
There is no toothbrush involved in this, and you don't have to try brushing your pooch's teeth, because the toothpaste is actually designed to “tackle the debris that leads to bad breath and can cause other serious health problems in your pup." So, you can squeeze out the paste on to a tasty, chicken-flavored chew and feed it to your dog once a day. The paste and chew work together and deal with tartar, bad breath, and plaque, thus saving you from having to forcefully brush your dog's teeth. Bright Dental is available now as part of a monthly subscription service, which costs about $1 a day, at BarkBright.com, and will be available in individual packs at Target starting March 1 and CVS starting March 27.
The website says: Bright is two parts: a gel and a chew. The enzymes are in the gel, which you squeeze onto the tasty (chicken flavored) dental chew and give to your dog as a treat. (We recommend brushing with your pup every morning — imagine the content opportunities!). The chew scrubs plaque and tartar off the teeth, and then the enzymes break down the gross stuff to reveal fresh breath. In short, you’re brushing your dog’s teeth without having to “brush” their teeth. Bright Dental is so smart, Time Magazine gave it a special mention in their Best Inventions of 2019 list! Your dog deserves nothing but the best and this is it!
People were sent out samples and they gave amazing reviews about it. “Cleo LOVES her late-night dental chew, and she will remind me if I forget. I usually have to wrestle her to get her teeth brushed and end up covered in toothpaste and drool, and then she shuns me for about an hour. I’ve noticed that some of the plaque near her gums seems to be getting worked away, I am looking forward to seeing how this works after a few months. Cleo’s picky butt definitely approves of them, she reacts the same as her favorite treats..lots of excited spins!” a reviewer wrote.
“Actually, this is the first dental product Winnie has ever eaten and liked.” - Kathie & Winnie wrote. "Billy sure enjoys the treat and his breath has no odor to it whatsoever which is great since sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night with him next to me, head on my shoulder and breathing in my face!!" - Ann & Billy said. I mean, Bright is much more effective than what's available on the market and these customer reviews are proof enough.
