Don't They Need Kibble to Keep Their Teeth Clean?
Information excerpted from the book "Raw Dog Food" by Carina Beth MacDonald
Of course not! Dogs don't get cleaner teeth by eating kibble, any more than you will by eating cookies. Those crunchy little nuggets provide almost zero teeth cleaning benefits for big sharp teeth. Ever looked at your dog's mouth about an hour after eating her doggie bits? All that goop is still smooshed between her teeth, fermenting away. One of the most immediate benefits most people see with a raw diet is sweet breath and whiter teeth. Often this difference will be seen within days. One of the most common reasons people bring their pets to a vets' office is for dental concerns.
