Dental Care and Fresh Breath - Providing proper dental care is one of the most important aspects of pet ownership. In fact, dental and gum disease is the number 1 health problem diagnosed by veterinarians. Over 80% of all dogs over the age of 2 have some form of periodontal disease. Left untreated periodontal disease can cause pain, bad breath, tooth loss, and infections that can lead to serious heart and kidney disease. By practicing routine dental care most dental problems can be prevented.

Dental Care Tips:
1. See your veterinarian yearly for a thorough dental examination.
2. Feed nutritious dry pet foods and hard treats.
3. Use your K
ONG Dental toy three times a week or more to help remove plaque and food debris.
4. Brush your dog’s teeth at least three times a week.
5. Use KONG Breath Paste on your KONG
dental toy to help draw your dog’s attention and freshen breath.

NO DOG TOY IS INDESTRUCTIBLE. Supervise your dog’s use of
ONGs until you are confident they can be used safely without supervision.

Clean and Inspect KONGs Frequently
Look for cracks, separations and/or missing pieces. Flex your dry KONG and inspect it from all angles. Loose pieces larger than a food nugget can be harmful if swallowed. Worn and damaged KONGs must be replaced immediately.

YOUR DOG’S SAFETY IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. If you think your dog has swallowed a toy fragment (for example: If the toy was damaged and you cannot find every piece larger than a food nugget), promptly inform your veterinarian.

- Proper KONG sizing is determined by your dog’s size and chewing temperament.


1.) Size Up - If your dog destroys a KONG in a short period of time, try a larger KONG and/or an Extreme KONG.

2.) Multiple dogs - Only provide KONGs sized for the largest and/or most tenacious chewer in the house.

3.) Jawrobics™ - Regular use of KONG will strengthen your dog’s jaw muscles. Eventually you may need to size up or switch to Extreme KONGs.


Important Behavioural Tips:

1) Is your dog healthy? - Schedule an exam with your veterinarian to be sure.

2) A proper diet is important. - Consult your veterinarian, trainer or breeder.

3) Enroll your dog in basic training classes. - Ask your veterinarian for a referral.

4) Provide KONGs for physical and mental stimulation.

Dogs Need KONGS!
- KONGs are widely used for therapy and prevention of boredom, separation anxiety and other behavioural issues. Regular use of KONGs can also improve oral health. Their unpredictable bounce lures most dogs into a game of chase, catch and chew. The hollow center can be filled with food and treats. A dab of peanut butter spread around the inside is very effective. For more stuffing ideas, send for a complimentary copy of “Recipe for the Perfect Dog”.

Put Your Dog to Work! - Providing food and/or treat stuffed KONGs for your dogs can keep them contentedly busy (working) and out of trouble for long periods of time. Add more stuffed KONGs to increase their work time. Note - Adjust bowl feeding as necessary to maintain a healthy diet.
