Dental Health Tips

February 17, 2018

February is National Pet Dental Health Month! Here are a few tips on how to keep your pets teeth clean.

A common misconception is that kibble cleans a dog’s teeth, but kibble increases tartar build up more than any other pet food. Whether your dog eats kibble or raw food, feeding them a raw meaty bone such as duck neck, turkey neck, or duck feet can significantly improve your dogs oral health and reduce tartar build up. I recommend these 3 bones in particular because they are easy to chew and digest for both kibble and raw fed dogs. 

There are other methods to cleaning a dog’s teeth such as using a human toothbrush or putting a powdered substance into your dogs water bowl. However, I personally prefer to use the most natural way first and that’s by using raw meaty bones. The last two photos are of my personal dogs teeth. 

Genetics can play a role in poor oral health, especially in smaller breeds. So feeding an occasional frozen bone listed above is also very beneficial.
