The Good: They are designed to to clean and freshen dog breath–while some dog owners relish the naturally potent pooch-stink, the idea of a product that can at least temporarily get rid of that freshly licked poop scent is a great thing indeed. Oh, and dogs seem to really like the taste (of the DogToids…and apparently of poop as well).
The Not-So-Good: I’m not quite sure how well they work. I just fed one to my dog Casper, then I got down and smelled his breath…it smells like dog treats.
One of the ingredients is “desiccated liver.” Thanks to a quick visit to dictionary.com, I now know desiccated just means dehydrated–not necessarily a bad thing after all…the word “desiccated” just sounded really scary.
The Verdict: The jury is still out on whether this is more novelty than it is effective, but I’ll take the placebo effect over poop breath any day of the week.
