Suitable for adult dogs, all breed sizes
Black Hawk Healthy Benefits Dental has been developed for your adult dog’s oral health. The tear-drop kibble size and fibrous plant-based ingredients create a tooth-friendly texture that aims to clean your dog’s teeth while they chew. Vitamin C is included as an antioxidant and to help to prevent plaque and tartar build-up.
A complete and balanced diet and a great choice for dogs who have finished growing and whose pet parents are looking to keep their dog’s teeth healthy. It's perfect for breeds and dogs who are prone to oral health problems, and we also recommend it for older dogs who may be at a higher risk of dental hygiene issues.
The unique teardrop kibble has been designed specifically for this diet to help facilitate maximum chewing activity, ‘crunching’, and tooth surface contact.
The kibble is larger-than-average in size, 15-18mm diameter, 9mm thickness, and appropriate for adult dogs of all breeds, all sizes. The act of chewing this kibble stimulates saliva production, which helps neutralise acid and prevent tooth decay.
This recipe contains plant cellulose, because when dogs eat kibble that contains cellulose fibre, the unique texture within the kibble can help to mechanically clean their teeth as they chew, which aids in reducing the build-up of plaque.

Frequently asked questions
Does Black Hawk dog food contain any additives or preservatives?
Black Hawk wet and dry food contains only natural preservatives. A natural preservative is one that occurs naturally in nature, as opposed to a chemical preservative that is made synthetically such as BHT, BHA or ethoxyquin which are often found in cheaper brands.
The natural preservatives we use in our products include rosemary extract, vitamin E (tocopherol) and vitamin C.
Why do you include chicken fat in your recipes?
Fat is included in pet foods to deliver a number of nutritional benefits to the dogs and cats we feed. This includes the provision of energy, but also essential nutrients (eg linoleic acid) and others that impart valuable health benefits when consumed (omega 3 fatty acids, for example). Some fats are incorporated into bodily structures, and some take on more functional roles, like those which form hormones or support the immune system.
Apart from the nutritional need to include fat, it also assists in food selection and consumption. Both dogs and cats find fats palatable, and this is one driving force behind product acceptance.
- It’s digestible, meaning that it is easily absorbed and processed by dogs and cats
- Availability and supply is reliable, meaning we can reliably incorporate it into our diets now and in the future
- And it also fits with our natural philosophy.
We generally use fat from chicken sources because it consistently delivers on the above qualities.
Our chicken fat come from minimally processed sources, where we’re looking to preserve the value of this ingredient all the way to your pet’s bowl.
Where is Black Hawk dog food made?
Black Hawk kibble is made at our new state of the art facility in Parkes, New South Wales, using fresh local ingredients, ensuring nutritional excellence and superior quality.
Our kibble is gently roasted at a lower and more even temperature, which creates higher palatability. Put simply, our kibble is even tastier.
We undertake regular audits not only of our ingredient suppliers, but of the factories which make our foods, to ensure compliance to our product specifications.
These sites adhere to good manufacturing practices, dictated by organisations such as the PFIAA (Pet Food Industry Association of Australia), and the NZPFMA (New Zealand Pet Food Manufacturer’s Association). These organisations uphold and advocate for the highest standards of pet food production and PFIAA sets an Australian Standard (AS5812), acting as the ‘public face’ of the pet food industry.
