Why is oral care important to a cat’s health?
Oral disease is currently the #1 health problem diagnosed in pets. But many cat owners admit they have no daily dental regimen for controlling plaque and tartar—the two leading causes of periodontal disease. Worse yet, most clients don’t see dental health as a health issue. If left untreated, poor oral health can lead to life-threatening conditions including liver and kidney problems and heart disease.
Why are feline dental treats important?
Chewing promotes good oral health. The more cats chew, the more they work their mouth and clean their teeth. When used twice a day as part of a dental care routine, dental treats, such as Feline Greenies™ dental treats, can reduce tartar and plaque buildup.
Why did Feline Greenies dental treats change?
Feline Greenies dental treats were changed to make them better. New Feline Greenies dental treats have improved nutritional credentials (higher protein and fat, and less carbohydrate), increased palatability (superior to Friskies, Whisker Lickins, and Pounce), improved shape design for optimum tooth penetration and mechanical scraping action, and improved the shelf stability (guaranteed 18 months shelf life from date of manufacture).
What are the benefits of Feline Greenies dental treats?
Periodontal disease is the most common disease of adult cats and dogs. It is often a silent process that progresses without detection. Even in cases of severe dental disease, your cat may not demonstrate obvious discomfort. Oral disease is also a primary cause of offensive breath odor. Dental plaque is the key substance that must be controlled in order to control periodontal disease. Dental plaque is not easily removed by normal tongue actions or water drinking but can be affected by mechanical and chemical means. Feline Greenies dental treats are specifically formulated to mechanically remove the plaque and tartar accumulation on your cat’s teeth. It serves as a highly palatable treat, provides vitamins, trace minerals and is a good source of nutrition. Reduction of plaque and tartar results in a reduction in gingivitis or inflammation of the gums and will also provide breath freshening.
How does Feline Greenies dental treats help improve the condition of my cat’s teeth?
Feline Greenies dental treats are formulated with natural oat fiber which provides texture within the kibble that scrubs your cat’s teeth. Think of oat fiber as “nature’s toothbrush”. This scrubbing action is much like the mechanical action of brushing your teeth. This mechanical scrubbing action serves to remove plaque and tartar from your cat’s teeth.
How Do I feed Feline Greenies Dental Treats?
Feline Greenies dental treats are recommended for adult cats of any breed. Kittens have different nutritional needs compared to adult cats at 10-12 months of age. A veterinarian should conduct a nutritional assessment of your kitten monthly from 6 to 16 weeks of age and then annually. Typically your veterinarian will give instruction for dental care and nutritional modification at the 1 year visit. Therefore it is recommended that you don’t start your cat on Feline Greenies until they are at least ten to 12 months of age.
Why are Feline Greenies dental treats green?
Feline Greenies dental treats are green because they contain chlorophyll.

Like most great ideas, Greenies started as a solution to a problem. And that problem was bad breath. More specifically, Ivan's bad breath. Ivan was like a lot of dogs. His teeth had plaque and tartar. And the resulting gingivitis was making his breath downright unpleasant. Something had to be done, but nothing worked. Luckily for Ivan, his owners were not ones to give up easily. Working with a board-certified veterinary nutritionist and other experts, they eventually developed the familiar Greenies toothbrush-shaped dental chew known today. But the story doesn't end there.
Greenies continues to refine the original formula, and created an extensive product line meeting the needs of many different types of dogs. Then, Greenies took everything it learned and launched a line made especially for your feline friends. So whether your heart belongs to a Lab, a Pug, or a Tabby, you can always share in a daily moment of happiness with Greenies.
