Flex And Floss
Brushing our teeth is one of the most important routines in our day.
Keeping our mouths as healthy as possible ensures our pearly whites stay white and free from nasty plaque and tartar and just like us, our dogs need to keep their knashers in check too! But did you know you can do more than just brushing?
Dental sticks provide an extra source of tooth cleaning fun for your dogs’ teeth. Chewing and chomping on a dental stick regularly can increase oral health and leave your dogs’ breath smelling clean. Packed with all-natural and wholesome ingredients, the right dental stick can be great for not just oral hygiene but for all-round doggy health and wellbeing too.
As dogs explore the world through their noses and mouths, their mouths come into contact with a multitude of different items each and every day, so keeping an eye on their pearly whites is fundamental in caring for their overall oral health. As advocates of all-natural alternatives to high street products, here’s our amazing, alternative dental sticks to keep your pet’s pearlies munching just like they should!

Given to the dogs that work within Lily’s headquarters, the team at LK know that Woofbrushes are all treat and no chore!
