You know how it is. You forget to brush your teeth for a couple days and all of a sudden everyone’s calling you “dog breath.” We’ve all been there.
Oh…You haven’t? Well, us neither.
But dogs suffer this sort of ridicule all the time. Now, however, there’s a cure. It’s the Greenies Dental Chew, a treat for Fido that will clean his choppers every day. And spare you the hair-curling smell of his breath when he licks your face in the morning. (That’ll wake you up.)
Greenies come in two flavors. Low-calorie Greenies Lite for tubby mutts. And Greenies Senior, specially formulated with glucosamine and chondroitin for those older dogs whose joints are stiff–and whose breath would stop a charging rhino at 30 paces.
Greenies got started back in 1996, when founders Judy and Joe Roetheli adopted a samoyed named Ivan with terrible halitosis. They started experimenting with chew-bones and finally came up with an aglomeration of ingredients that fixed Ivan’s Godzilla breath in a matter of days.
A decade later the Roethelis’ company, S&M NuTec, was at the top of the pet-snack heap and they sold out to Mars Inc. for millions.
So next time somebody calls you dog breath, just smile. And grab yourself a bag of Greenies.
