Dogs that are fed commercial dry or canned foods have poor dental hygiene. Their poor dental hygiene will not always be apparent in their younger years, but the starchy ingredients eventually start to accumulate and cause tartar buildup.
Eventually, kibble and canned foods will lead to dental disease.
Dental disease in dogs is a serious matter which can lead to absconded roots and teeth that need to be extracted.
Infections in the mouth can also cause more serious secondary infections elsewhere in the body.
To top this off, teeth cleanings are not cheap and can be dangerous when opting to take the sedation route.
In order to negate as many dental issues as possible for pets being fed a traditional diet of canned or kibble, proper preventative care is necessary, such as brushing the dog's teeth, providing dental chews, and ideally recreational bones.
In the wild, wolves’ teeth are pearly white despite not seeing the dentist or a toothbrush! This is because they are eating a natural raw diet.
The good news is that your dog can have the same pearly white teeth as their wild relatives too if you feed them a raw diet. No more brushing, fancy dental chews, or expensive trips to the doggie dentist. No work on your part.
The key here is, when feeding a raw diet, there aren't any unnecessary sugary or starchy components that you find in kibble or canned food. Components that promote tartar formation.
Their diet should just be fresh raw meats and select fruits and vegetables. If you add recreational raw meaty bones to your dog’s diet on top of raw dog food, you will further accelerate their teeth’s return to their natural state.
Every time they rip, shred, tear, and crunch down on bones, they are receiving thorough teeth cleaning.
Crunching and grinding bones naturally scrape and remove plaque and tartar from the teeth!
Cali Raw Bones for dogs are great because they have some meat to enjoy. Our bones also come frozen which is great as a refreshing treat during the hot summer.
