Clean Teeth are a Benefit of a Raw Diet

February is National Pet Dental Health Month.  One of the benefits of feeding raw is the improvement or maintenance of a dog's oral health.  My dogs all have clean teeth and healthy gums, thanks in part to their diet.  Another big perk - their breath has no smell at all.  No doggy breath here!!

I wrote recently about some of the best cuts of meat for dental health benefits.

I admire those who brush their dog's teeth daily, and if my dogs ever needed it, I would definitely attempt it. 

Faolan is nearly 4.5 years old.  He has been raw fed since the week I adopted him at approximately 9 months of age.

Bruce is nearly 6.5 years old.  I have never seen a 6 year old dog with teeth like his.

Neeko will be 6 in a couple of weeks.  I love the lack of tarter on her teeth.  Both she and Bruce have been raw fed for about 4.5 years.


  1. Schooner & Skipper teeth are not brushed. They eat raw. The vet said they have nice clean teeth.

  2. That's a pretty big incentive to feed raw!

  3. Gorgeous teeth! Our puppies teeth are this impressive. Sydney and Rodrigo have stains on their teeth after 3 years of eating dry dog food, but our vet says their teeth are still in great shape.

    I occasionally brush their teeth with a finger brush and coconut oil.

  4. It's so hard for me to brush Bain's teeth. He'll let me do anything with his paws, but I need to find a different alternative since his breath is a bit beyond regular dog breath right now.


Thanks for the howls!!
