Super Clean Teeth
One of the wonderful benefits of my raw diet is my super clean teeth. Chomping, tearing and crunching through chunks of raw meat and bone-in meat helps to keep the my teeth really really clean. Also, what I eat is healthy, natural raw food…not processed junk.
Mummy is always amazed by how clean my teeth look and feel…the last time I went to see Dr Tham (about a year ago), Mummy asked him to check if my teeth needed cleaning and he said nope. All good!
Ok here are some photo proofs…
This was taken at 10 months old by Furry Photos. Super close up of my teeth..please excuse the scary alien eyes. Look at how white and clean my teeth are! Pristine!
This was taken at 2.5 years old. The photo quality is awful compared to the photo by Furry Photos. Our camera just isn’t as powerful as Uncle Nic’s and also this photo was taken indoor in the kitchen under not so good orangey lighting. I know my teeth look kinda yellow in this photo but I promise you they are not so yellow in real life. So try not to focus on that but look again at how clean my teeth are. No plaque or tartar build up.
I will try to get a better picture of my teeth and also post updates on the condition of my teeth over time so everyone can see the benefits of raw diet for my dental health. Sigh putting the 2 photos side by side now makes me think even our Shiro Clicko the Olympus Pen sux….look at the huge difference in the photos!
All humans know that it is important to brush their teeth and have good oral hygiene. But many forget that it is just as important for furkids to have clean teeth and healthy gums. Sometimes people complain about their furkids having bad breath and don’t realise that it’s caused by dirty teeth and unhealthy gums. People will remember to trim nails and bathe their furkids but skip on teeth cleaning.
I guess it’s understandable because it’s not easy to brush a furkid’s teeth (Mummy didn’t even want to try explaining teeth brushing to me) but when you feed them commercial pet food of wet canned food and kibble you have to pay attention to their dental health as well. Because rotting teeth and gum disease can lead to overall health issues. And commercial pet food don’t help with teeth cleaning at all and Mummy believes they make teeth problems worse. Like if a human ate junk food all the time..and didn’t brush their teeth..they’d probably have a very gross mouth. Mummy has seen some doggies with massive massive plaque build up on their teeth that can only be removed by going to the vet for a massive scrubbing.
Remember that it’s not just for the good of your furkid to take care of their oral health. Good oral health means less health problems, no stinky breath and drooly mouth which means less time consuming and expensive visits to the vet, assaults on your noses and dirty sticky floors.
