“We know dogs love our original Crunch ‘n Clean Biscuits,” states Tina Le Lay, Hartz Senior Marketing Director. “We decided to take flavor to a whole new level by introducing our Savory Flavors, a line of dog biscuit products that offer dogs the flavor-packed taste they enjoy and their pet parents have come to expect from Hartz.”

Hartz Crunch ‘n Clean® Savory Flavors go beyond just providing a satisfying and tasty snack. They also provide superior oral care – a chief concern among dog owners. Research shows that 80 percent of dogs over the age of three have some form of tooth and gum disease.(1) If left untreated, this can cause bad breath, swollen and bleeding gums, difficulty eating, and teeth loss. Even more troublesome, it can lead to heart, liver, and kidney disease.

Additionally, given the challenges in brushing a dog’s teeth, owners are increasingly looking for easier dental hygiene alternatives. Hartz Crunch ‘n Clean® Savory Flavors biscuits offer DentaShield® patented technology, which was developed by researchers at the Indiana University School of Dentistry and is clinically proven to reduce the buildup of tartar for cleaner teeth. The main ingredient in DentaShield® technology, Sodium Hexametaphosphate, can be found in a leading brand of human oral care product.

In addition to DentaShield®, Hartz Crunch ‘n Clean® Savory Flavors Biscuits contain breath-freshening crystals that contain chlorophyll and also include important vitamins and minerals such as Iron, Choline, Zinc, Vitamin B12, Riboflavin, Vitamin D3, Thiamin and Niacin to promote overall health.

Hartz Crunch ‘n Clean® Savory Flavors Dog Biscuits come in a 26 oz. package and are the perfect size for any dog. Every box contains three delicious flavors: Braised Beef, Rotisserie Chicken and Smokehouse Bacon. The recommended retail price for each package is $3.49, and they are available for purchase at major retailers, including Wal-Mart, Target and Kroger.
