Questions that QCHEFS-Fans ask themselves

How does QCHEFS brush the teeth?

Scientifically proven: in 45 international studies – curd cheese and cottage cheese (curd cheese cooked) naturally has an antibacterial effect. A protein complex is deposited on the cell walls of the bacteria. So they can no longer reproduce. The mouth bacteria are reduced by 80%. Plaque and gingivitis decrease. Tartar comes loose.

How do you dose QCHEFS for prophylaxis?

Give QCHEFS cheese in the evening before going to bed – then the mouth flora is neutralized. Very little is enough:


Small: 1 SIZZLES / ½ tsp dental flakes /

nibble rock-hard bones

Medium: 2 – 3 treats / 1TL dental flakes or

1/3 puffed bone

Large: 3 – 4 treats / 1 -2 tsp dental flakes or

½ puffed bone

How do I give the dental flakes ?

Everything about QCHEFS

How do you dose QCHEFS for dental problems and tartar?

If inflammation of the gums or tartar is already present, the active ingredient should be doubled.

Here is our intensive recipe:

Dental flakes: 1 teaspoon as a paste with 1 teaspoon of COLD PRESSED ORGANIC coconut oil (with 50% lauric acid – it also supports the natural antibacterial effect) – in the evening as a dessert to lick up before sleeping – (paste can be mixed for at least 1 week)

→ Because tartar has different hardness – tartar is soft after 3 weeks – please scratch it – it will come off – try with a toothbrush / finger cot.

IMPORTANT: please adjust to the size of the dog and the condition of the teeth:

Strong tartar: 1 teaspoon small dog – 2 teaspoon medium-sized dog – 3 teaspoon giants

→ More helps faster! – also 2 weeks in the morning after the feed!

Alternatively: Instead of just 1-2 treats, give 2-4 treats. This way you can achieve a faster effect.

You can usually see a brightening after 1 week. The tartar varies in hardness. That is why it sometimes works faster and why it takes longer for older tartar. If the tartar is soaked and still adheres, it can be easily removed with a clean coin, for example.

If the tartar turns out to be very persistent, make a paste with dental flakes and coconut oil and rub the teeth with a finger cot. The video shows how:

When is bad breath gone?

Bad breath is usually the first sign of bacteria and inflammation in the mouth. QCHEFS cheese reduces these bacteria and the bad breath will soon disappear.

QCHEFS cheese also for gum infections?

All mouth bacteria are reduced – including those on the gums. The natural antibacterial effect also inhibits inflammation. Here the dental flakes work well – even as a paste with the supportive effect of organic coconut oil or curd cheese.

What is in it & why something is not in it?

Important: In terms of quantity, QCHEFS cheese for dental care is out of proportion to the feed. Therefore, the ingredients in terms of calories, energy, carbohydrate content, etc. have no influence on the daily ration and do not have to be added.

Only healthy, high-quality foods are processed gently so that all vitamins and minerals, amino acids and healthy fatty acids are kept.

Ingredients: Cottage cheese 30%, buckwheat (no grain), carob or rice, vegetable glycerin from coconut oil, rapeseed oil, organic coconut oil


Free of: grain, gluten, lactose, sugar, synthetic additives

Why are there no synthetic additives?

100% nature – ecological and sustainable production – it is good for people, animals and the environment! That is the promise of the QCHEFS team. For that QCHEFS won  the Green Tec Award in 2015.

There is hardly a finished food without synthetic additives – even for animals. But it are these chemical additives – or “nutritional additives” – that are the cause of many diseases and allergies – preservatives, emulsifiers, colors and flavors, flavor enhancers, synthetic vitamin additives and phosphates and much more.

QCHEFS has set itself the task of producing a 100% natural product. This has always been a great challenge. Because the sustainable and specially developed high-tech process processes natural raw ingredients in the low temperature range. These are not always the same. And that cannot be compensated with chemical additives. 

Nevertheless, the QCHEFS team does its best- because 100% nature is important for health.


Milk proteins such as curd cheese and cottage cheese do not contain lactose. The milk proteins are washed 3 times after separation from the whey. Cottage cheese is a high quality protein. It contains all essential amino acids. The amino acid profile of the feed meat can thus be supplemented. Cottage cheese also contains the base for serotonin and dopamine – tryptophan. It cannot be saved. That is why the cheese bones are an important source for it.


It is not a grain, but a knotweed plant and medicinal plant: – Buckwheat flavonoids are antibacterial. This supports the antibacterial effect of cottage cheese and improves the dental effect. They also work against inflammation throughout the body – but especially in the intestinal mucosa. The gluten and lectin free also contribute to this. – Buckwheat normalizes cholesterol, fat and sugar metabolism and makes veins elastic. – Vitamins A, D and E are naturally included – but also minerals Mg, Fe, Zn, Ca and trace elements Cu and Mn. They are usually identified as a deficiency in the dog’s blood count analyzes.


Rice belongs to the grain genus – but is gluten-free. Rice is low in calories, easily digestible and contains important B vitamins and magnesium. These are important to support dental care.


Healthy fatty acids are important. Rapeseed oil has the ideal fatty acid combination of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids. The organic coconut oil is native. The lauric acid it contains is also antibacterial and antiviral. It supports dental care.


It is used for blood clotting, the immune system, wound healing, bones and much more important and cannot be saved by the body. It is not heat-resistant and is therefore missing in the feed.


An adult dog needs around 60 mg of phosphorus per day / kg body weight. For example, your dog weighs 10 kg – so he should take in 600 mg of phosphorus daily. 1 QCHEFS cheese bone has 80 mg – a treat has 14 mg phosphorus.


An adult dog needs around 50 mg calcium per day and per kg / kg. For example, your dog weighs 10 kg – so he should take 500 mg of calcium a day. 1 QCHEFS cheese bone has 100 mg – a treat has about 18 mg calcium.


Here are the most important information: Calcium 0.43 phosphorus 0.43 sodium 0.13 magnesium 0.08 potassium 0.98 copper 5.2 mg / kg iron 29.6 mg / kg manganese 16.3 mg / kg zinc 21.3 mg / kg A heavy metal load was not found.

Essential amino acids with the ingredients for happiness

Fear – and aggression-free, well-being and happiness – many hormones and messengers work for this, but it doesn’t work without the neurotransmitter serotonin. It is generated by the brain itself. The ingredients for this is the vital and essential amino acid – tryptophan. Tryptophan is only 1/4 of other amino acids in meat. And it should be taken about twice a day, because the body cannot save it. Cottage cheese contains a high proportion of natural tryptophan. It can be used 3 times better than synthetic tryptophan. Cottage cheese, buckwheat and rice contain quite a bit of it. But to overcome the brain barrier, the healthy carbohydrates of buckwheat are necessary. They keep out the competing amino acids. And it only works if they are there at that moment.

Why “chewing cheese” soothes even more!

1. Cottage cheese works like warm milk to fall asleep. The messenger substance GABA is strengthened in the brain. This is responsible for the reassurance. Scientific studies have shown that casein = cottage cheese or curd has a much stronger effect than Valium – without any side effects.

Noise on New Year’s Eve, travel, separation or the incorporation of new animals – but also with behavioral problems such as urine marking, lack of contact, lack of drive and aggression, cheese can achieve a calming effect soon due to the high concentration of casein (from 1.5 h). This also lasts a long time because the digestion time is 8 hours.

2. Dogs are quick eaters, but they can learn to chew. Stress is reduced by chewing, metabolic processes and bowel movement are supported. the chewing gum effect of the puffed cheese bones forces the dog to chew. And he enjoys it for a while. If the proportion of the amino acid tryptophan from the cottage cheese is correct for the formation of serotonin and dopamine – then your dog will feel good, is balanced and is free from fear.

How are cheese bones eaten and digested?

Can my ravenous dog swallow the cheese bones?

Can the dental flakes stick to the palate of small dogs?

What does bloating, rumbling or soft feces mean after the 1st QCHEFS cheese?
