Our local PetCo store is having a sale, and I am also a member of their frequent buyer program. I love getting a good deal on products for our dog, but I also love finding a great product that does what it claims to do!
Old Mother Hubbard Gimme A Kiss dog biscuits come in a 20 ounce bag, and claim to be a natural way of helping clear up your dogs bad breath. They are baked biscuits, and contain both parsley and spearmint that will help leave your canine friend with better smelling breath. The small treats are about 2 inches in length.
Many dogs are intolerant or allergic to wheat and grains, so I am listing the ingredients so you can know if these will agree with your dog. The Old Mother Hubbard Gimme A Kiss biscuits contain wheat flour, oatmeal, chicken, chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols), molasses, spearmint, parsley, eggs, whole ground apples, whole ground carrots, sea salt.

We have been buying the Old Mother Hubbard dog treats for a few years now, which are found in specialty pet stores. Unfortunately, I have never seen these in my local supermarkets.
The biscuits are baked in the typical bone shape with a light oatmeal color, and are easy for dogs to chew up, even small breeds like ours. They do come in a variety of sizes, so there is something for every breed.
Although we give our dog treats on a daily basis, Old Mother Hubbard sugggests giving these to your pet forintermittent or supplemental feeding only, so please keep that in mind.
For some reason our little dog loves fruits and vegetables, so when I read the ingredient list and saw these contained whole ground apples and whole ground carrots, I felt they would be a treat that our fussy pet would eat, and I was right! She looks forward to these treats, and gobbles them up right away, which is always a good sign. (I know that when she carries her dog treats into another room, she’s generally looking for a place to hide them, which means she isn’t terribly fond of the taste.)
Taste and ingredients aside, do these work? Yes! I was told that many customers rave about the effectiveness of these Old Mother Hubbard Gimme A Kiss treats, and they really do help keep her dog breath at bay. Our small terrier has issues with plaque build up on her teeth, and the vet tells me that this is just a trait of small dogs, they often deal with teeth problems.
If you have a dog that has bad breath, and don’t (or can’t afford) to have your pets teeth cleaned on a regular basis, I would recommend giving these treats a try. They really do work, and they seem to be easy on the dogs digestive system as well. The bag retails for around $8.00, so it won’t cost you an arm and a leg to see if these will work for your dog. And if they don’t, well Old Mother Hubbard guarantees that you will be satisfied, or they will refund your money! You have nothing to lose by giving these a try! According to their website, the Old Mother Hubbard products are not affected by the peanut butter recall.
