This new doggy bowl brushes teeth and prevents overeating at the same time. The DentaDish is a new doggy bowl on the market that not only forces your dog to eat slowly, but actually cleans his teeth at the same time!
The Dentadish, made by the company R2P Pet, contains bristles which function to not only keep food in the bowl, but clean your dog’s teeth while eating. The bristles reduce plaque formation, and cut down on tartar and gingivitis. All of this serves to reduce and prevent gum disease, which is the leading cause of bad breath in pups.
The soft bristles also break up the bowl’s surface area, ensuring slow eating. Making sure your dog eats slowly is also beneficial, as it reduces air intake, improves digestion, and prevents bloat. This is especially good news for dogs who tend to eat their food too quickly and then vomit it all back up.

This dog dish is designed with safety in mind – it is made with materials that are BPA and Phthalate free. It also has a non-skid rubber bottom, which prevents the bowl from sliding (great news for people whose dogs like to push their food around and play games with it rather than eat it).
Inside the bowl, there are measurement lines (in cups and grams). They help owners quickly measure out the correct amount of food. This aids in weight control efforts.
Anyone who has tried to brush their dog’s teeth knows it is not always easy or effective. It’s also easy to forget to do it every day. This bowl seems like an ingenious way to incorporate teeth cleaning into the fun and pleasurable act of eating.

Canine oral hygiene is a very significant health concern, as well as weight management. Anything an owner can do to prevent dental or digestive issues is a huge plus, and this bowl not only accomplishes both priorities creatively, but conveniently as well.
DentaDish is currently available in two sizes – small and large. A small dish (recommended for dogs under 40 pounds) can hold 2 cups of dry food and sells on Amazon for $14.99. A large bowl (recommended for dogs over 40 pounds) can hold 4 cups of dry food and costs around $20 on Amazon.
If your dog is right around 40 pounds, you should probably order the bigger bowl to be sure your dog gets enough food. While this product is still new, reviewers are responding very well to it. It's currently holding a 4.4 out of 5 star rating!
