snuff??? maybe chew or dip but last time I checked snuff was in the movie 8mm.
It contains alot of foul bacteria, enough to support the white blood cells in human and block AIDS attacking white blood cells. You're a dentist you should know that much. A canines mouth is cleaner then a humans, at any given time.
