WHIMZEES® is here to help your dog reduce plaque, tartar, and bad breath! Bentley sure enjoys these natural daily dental chews!
Bentley is very important to our family! In fact, he's not just a dog or even a pet, but a member of our family. If he could talk, he'd tell you the same thing.
Pets are family members!
It's kind of funny. He is my grandpup. We gave Ashlyn a puppy for her 15th birthday. She'd been wanting a smaller dog. We've always had black labs. We had no experience with small dogs. We researched and all of us took online personality tests to match us up to the ideal breed. We knew that we wanted an active smaller dog with a big personality that was good with people and animals alike. Would you believe that 3 out of the 4 of us were matched with a Westie? He was the perfect match with our sweet lab, Lizzie.
A quick search of my phone brought me to this funny photo. It perfectly describes their personalities. Bentley is like a lab wrapped into a smaller body. This was a photo that Ashlyn put together to celebrate Lizzie's birthday one year. They were always together. Sadly, Lizzie passed away a few years ago.
Having 2 dogs that were vastly different in size brings me to the fact about food and treats. It's very important to nourish your dog with food, treats, and chews that are appropriate for their size. We always had 2 sets of everything with them both. Luckily, WHIMZEES® offers size options.
We really strive to be an active family. I plan and prepare healthy meals for us as well.
It only seems fitting that I would do the same for Bentley.
Proper nutrition, exercise, sleep, love and dental health is needed for us as well as our pets.
Bentley had his yearly check-up last month. Our vet of 30 years just retired. This recent visit was with a new vet.
We've always worked to maintain a healthy weight for Bentley. This is done with controlled nutrition and exercise.
The vet said that his teeth looked great and no special care was needed. He recommended that we continue to give him high-quality chews like WHIMZEES® to keep his dental health in check.
Dental chews are different than a dog treat or biscuit. True dental chews are meant for your dog to work to chew them. This is what aids in cleaning their teeth.
One thing that we can always rely on to receive from Bentley is utter unconditional love. It really makes your heart swell when you come home being greeted with tail wagging and vocal happiness from him.
We want to keep bringing out the best in him by the care we give him. Please don't forget your dog's dental health when caring for your pet.
Did you know that 80% of adult dogs suffer from dental disease? It's actually the #1 health issue for dogs. Unfortunately, this can lead to other health issues down the road.
Rewarding Bentley with one WHIMZEES® chew specifically geared towards his dental health reduces plaque, tartar, and bad breath.
We all love some fresh breath for those doggie kisses.
That's a happy smile for Bentley as well as us!
Just one WHIMZEES® Natural Daily Dental Treat per day is all that is needed to maintain Bentley's dental health. He's really gotten into the nighttime ritual of hanging out with us on the patio to enjoy his nightly dental chew.
I love that they are made with natural ingredients and are readily available at Walmart.
We feed Bently breakfast and dinner daily. Both he and our cat, Jack, have internal clocks that know when it's time to eat. At night, they both start following you around and staring at you starting around 6:15 pm in anticipation of their 6:30 dinner. It's quite comical.
Bentley wears his emotions on his face. You can literally tell when he's happy, sleepy, and bored. It makes him extremely happy to go to the family beach house with us. It's truly his happy place. As soon as we cross the bridge to the island, he starts wailing in anticipation.
We always pack his dental chews when traveling away from home. The bag with the airtight seal is so convenient.
He adores our fenced backyard! There is lots of grassy space for all kinds of ball fun not to mention bird, deer and squirrel watching.
You've got to check out my reel on Instagram of him playing soccer in the backyard!
We play with him many times throughout the day. Yes, it's playing, but also great exercise to keep him active.
He LOVES going for walks whether it be on our quiet street, at the beach or in our woods. He also loves a toddler swing!
While we give both Bentley and Jack a few bedtime treats, we do not mistake hard biscuit like cookies as a tool for cleaning Bentley's teeth.
WHIMZEES® is specifically designed for dental health.
Now that the weather has warmed, and we are spending so much time out there. We've gotten into an evening routine of chatting on the patio. It's the perfect time to give Bentley his one daily WHIMZEES® dental chew.
One WHIMZEES® chew per day is all he needs.
You want to give your dog a chew when you can be present with him and observe. You want to make sure he is thoroughly chewing it.
Also always keep water available for your dog.
WHIMZEES® is now available at Walmart! They come in various sizes so make sure you select the proper size for your dog's weight. Bentley is 19 pounds so we purchase the size small for him.
WHIMZEES® knows that healthy smiles are happy smiles!
This means so much to us. I am so glad that I can now easily pick them up at Walmart or conveniently order online.
I'd love to hear some fun and endearing stories about your fur babies. Please share in the comments!Buffer
