DentaDish Dog Bowl Stops Bloat and Brushes Teeth
Here’s something we haven’t seen before – a dog dish that cuts down on bloat and helps clean teeth!
The DentaDish was designed because an overwhelming number of dogs show signs of dental disease by the time they are three years old. Dental disease can end up being life-threatening as it can spread to vital organs and lead to sepsis! While we giggle sometimes at the thought of doggie toothbrushes, the reality is that dog oral hygiene is just as important as human oral hygiene.
DentaDish can help clean your dog’s teeth while he eats. You read that right. It cleans as he eats. Granted, your dog may look at you like you’ve been smoking something when you place it in front of him, but…with good food as the motivator, he’ll dig in anyway, and have his gums gently massaged by the soft, flexible bristles as he eats.

The DentaDish has been clinically proven to reduce dental and gum disease this way–it reduces the formation of plaque, tartar and gingivitis, which at minimum produce horrendous dog breath (it’s not just licking their butts that does that!) and could require pet parents to spend thousands in dental surgeries.
And, not only does the DentaDish clean dogs’ teeth while they eat, it slows them down. You may not think the speed at which a dog eats is a big deal, right? We joke about how dogs ‘wolf their food down,’ but the reality is that when dogs eat at a slower pace, there is less air taken in and as a result, less bloating of the belly.
‘Food bloat’ really means that a dog’s stomach is twisted because he’s eaten too quickly and taken in too much air as he did. In the dog’s body, this air turns to gas and can cause the abdomen to swell. When this happens, all the other internal organs also get internal, uncomfortable pressure and could lead to death. In fact, food bloat is only second to cancer as the leading cause of death in dogs. DentaDish tackles that serious, but not often known problem instantly and safely.

There are two sizes of the DentaDish–small, which fits up to two cups of food and is made for dogs under 40 pounds, and the larger bowl, which fits up to four cups of food for dogs over 40 pounds. Considering they can save you thousands in vet care bills for oral surgery or bloat, we think that the prices of $14.99 and $19.99 are ridiculously reasonable and would make great holiday gifts for all the pets in your life!
