• DentaShield® was developed at the Indiana University School of Dentistry by a team of researchers led by Dr. George Stookey, a pioneer in fluoride research and preventative dentistry for both animals and humans.

    • Much like fluoride aids in preventative care for you and me, DentaShield® was developed to promote better oral care for your dog.
    • The ingredient behind DentaShield® is known as Sodium Hexametaphosphate. It has been used for decades and is proven safe for your dog. It even breaks down into nutrients that his body can use. This active ingredient bonds with calcium in dogs' saliva to reduce the formation of tartar. It is the same ingredient that is used in a premium line of a leading brand toothpaste.
    • Only Hartz Crunch ‘n Clean® biscuits have DentaShield®. It’s what makes our biscuits a more effective way to easily take care of your dogs’ teeth between brushings and professional cleanings. It’s clinically proven to reduce tartar formation for cleaner teeth.
    • Our biscuits were formulated with the aid of an in-house veterinarian, Dr. Georgette Wilson, who aided in the formulation of Hartz Crunch ‘n Clean® biscuits and is the Manager of Scientific Affairs and Regulatory Affairs and resident veterinarian at Hartz. 
    • In addition to DentaShield®, Hartz Crunch 'n Clean™ biscuits are also formulated with breath freshening crystals. They contain the active ingredient Chlorophyll to help freshen dogs’ breath.
    • The biscuits are formulated with 17 vitamins and minerals, including iron, zinc, riboflavin, choline, vitamin E, calcium, and vitamin B12.
    • And not only are they better for dogs teeth, they also taste great! Our biscuits have a baked-in meaty flavor and are coated with special flavor enhancers for a taste dogs go crazy for
