The 360° toothbrush has an ergonomic dual texture handle for a secure grip, a 360° soft bristle brush head, a small traditional toothbrush head and rubber plaque scraper to get to those hard-to-reach areas. This package also includes a finger toothbrush to gently remove plaque and food debris and massage gums.
Nylabones have been used for over 50 years and come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and flavors. Typically, the more bumps and ridges on the toy, the more effective it can be at scraping, and thus removing, plaque and tartar. Many Nylabones are naturally flavored to entice the dog to chew and some are flavored to freshen the dog’s breath.
