Marengo Fun-Kuchen (Fun Biscuits)
Optimal Dental Hygiene and Low-Allergy Reward in OneDelicious chewing fun for your dog optimises the dental hygiene of both small and large gourmands. The Marengo Fun-Kuchen (Fun Biscuits) have been developed especially for dental hygiene and as a low-allergy reward. They are low in allergens, calories and protein. Therefore, they are very well-tolerated by dogs with a sensitive gastro-intestinal tract and dogs suffering from allergies.
The special form and size of the Fun-Kuchen biscuits stimulates biting and strong chewing activities. By means of this, the teeth are cleaned mechanically and naturally. What is more, the Marengo Fun-Kuchen (Fun Biscuits) are also purely vegetarian, low-protein croquettes, which means they are very kidney friendly. Because of this, they support a healthy metabolism, which is the best prophylaxis against tartar. Composition: spelt (49%), oats, rice, peas, carrots, corn oil, linseed, calcium carbonate
Content of ingredients: crude protein 13.8%, crude fat 6.9%, crude fibre 2%, crude ash 3.5%, calcium 0.84%, phosphor 0.35%
No additives contained, also suited for therapeutic protein and fat reduction.

Supplementary feed for dogs, available in 0.8 kg and 3 kg units
Natural dental care by MarengoWhich natural dental care options are available?
Without a doubt it is laudable when dog owners take the dental care of their pets so seriously that, when needed, one can even use a dog toothbrush. However, to be honest, only a very small number of dog owners are really willing to deal with the in sometimes truly vehement defensive behaviour on the part of the dogs. For this reason, in practice, not infrequently are these cleaning measures only deployed once they become absolutely essential.
Fortunately there also is the option of other, entirely natural cleaning mechanisms, which are on offer.
1. Feed a high-quality and, in particular, kidney-friendly dog food!
Among others, the kidneys are responsible for intact mucous membranes, which are also present within the dogs’ mouths. Kidneys that are ill or excessively burdened lead to a change in the mucous membrane milieu, since the composition of the saliva changes. Intact mucous membrane in the dogs’ mouths is, however, the best protection against carious teeth, damage caused by periodontitis and tartar. A high-quality, additive-free dog food, such as that offered by Marengo, which has a moderate crude protein and crude ash content, is extremely kidney-friendly and thus offers an optimal feed-basis for healthy mucous membranes and healthy teeth.
2. Feed the dry feed dry!
Ideally, Marengo dog food should be fed dry, since this supports the natural cleaning of the teeth. In the course hereof, the dogs are able to use their teeth in a species-appropriate manner. Strong chewing is a prerequisite for healthy and resistant teeth. The form of Marengo’s dog food strengthens the teeth and supports good denture development, particularly with puppies and young dogs.
3. Use Marengo Fun-Kuchen for your dog’s dental care
The tastiest and most pleasant kind of dental care surely is to be had by enjoying Marengo’s fun biscuits. The biscuit’s size animates the dogs to bite through them and chew them with gusto. In the process the teeth are naturally cleaned. What is more, the Marengo fun biscuits are purely vegetarian and thus also help avoiding a harmful oversupply of proteins, which can damage the kidneys.
Speaking of Tartar
Frequently, the reason for tartar problems with dogs is exclusively linked to too little chewing of bones, solid food, chewing items, etc. Here, however, another important cause is overlooked.
Tartar is not, as is frequently incorrectly assumed, hardened food residues. Rather, it is mineral substances from the saliva that accumulate on the teeth, due to an impaired renal (kidney) function. Therefore, recurrent tartar problems point toward renal dysfunction. Within the metabolism, the kidneys are responsible not only for excretion of the unneeded or poisonous substances from the body, but they also regulate the entire fluid and electrolyte balance. Thus, they have a decisive impact on the composition of all mucous membrane secretions such as, e.g. the saliva in the animal’s mouth. If the kidneys are overburdened or already limited in their function, the mucous membrane milieu changes as does the composition of the saliva in the mouth, which in turn can lead to increased tartar formation.
With calculus (tartar on the teeth), we recommend taking a close look at the feeding plan and removing possible kidney-stressing feeding mistakes. Generally speaking, feeding dogs with the kidney-friendly Marengo dry food, fed dry and not soaked, in combination with the tooth-cleaning Marengo Fun-Kuchen (Fun Biscuits) will lead to the desired success – even with persistent tartar problems and also without the use of additional chewing items and tooth cleaning sticks.
