Portland, Maine (January 2007) – Since gum disease, broken and damaged teeth, built up tartar and inflamed gums are all extremely prevalent in dogs, Planet Dog created the Orbee-Tuff Nut and Bolt. In doing so, this innovative pet industry leader, has again succeeded in making a health product for dogs appealing, affordable, effective and fun.
As the name implies, the Orbee-Tuff Nut and Bolt is also very durable. It features Planet Dog’s award-winning Orbee-Tuff(R) compound, the most durable, pliable, buoyant, bouncy and recyclable dog toy material on the market. Planet Dog even added a peppermint scent to ensure dogs love the taste as much as the feel and everyone benefits from improved dog breath.
The interactive design of the dog toy is engineered to stimulate the dog’s desire to puzzle and play. The Orbee-Tuff Nut and Bolt offers 2 toys in 1. The rounded edge of the Nut massages gums and removes tartar while the ridges of the Bolt clean the teeth and floss the gums.
“We recognize that our customers are educated and care about the complete package: fun, love, comfort, joy AND health,” states Alex Fisher, Planet Dog’s founder and chief creative officer. “Proper dental care that includes “dental fun”, as we call it, is critical so we created an innovative and fun toy for dogs that disguises the health benefits,” adds Fisher.
The Orbee-Tuff Nut and Bolt is available in 3 colors: steel, black and orange. The suggested retail price is $11.95 and they are a perfect way for dog lovers to celebrate the 13th Anniversary of National Pet Dental Health Month which will be celebrated in February of 2007.
