Dental Health Month

Northwest Naturals Marrow BonesNorthwest Naturals Marrow Bones

The reason why plaque is so hard to remove from teeth is that the dental bacteria create a protective barrier, or biofilm, which cannot be permeated by water, toothpaste, or chemicals. Raw bones have naturally occurring enzymes which break down the biofilm on teeth. Then, when pets chew on the bone, the plaque is gently scraped off the teeth.

In addition to great dental health benefits, raw meaty bones provide recreational activity for adult dogs and an appropriate chewing outlet for puppies. Young and teething dogs have a psychological and physical need to chew. Besides providing a fun and engaging (and tasty!) activity, young dogs can properly develop jaw, skull, neck, and shoulder muscling. (It also keeps them away from your favorite shoes!)

The last important aspect of feeding raw bones is a nutritional benefit. Raw bones, and the marrow within, are both natural nutritional sources of protein, fat, minerals, calcium, and phosphorous. However, since raw arrow bones are meant to be chewed only–not eaten—there are only small amounts of these nutrients and the bones should be fed more as a “treat” than as a replacement for your dog’s usual food.

ProDen PlaqueOff Dental Bones

ProDen PlaqueOff Dental Bones

are dog chews with the PlaqueOff System which help clean plaque and tartar by abrasive action. Used daily, this natural product made with sea kelp can complement ordinary dental hygiene. Available in four tasty flavors. Choose between Turkey & Cranberry Flavor, Chicken and Pumpkin Flavor, Bacon Flavor and Vegetable Fusion Flavor.

Dogs constantly produce new plaque in their mouths. If not treated, can calcify into tartar, something that cannot be brushed away from the teeth. Instead, a vet needs to remove tartar with anesthesia and ultrasound. If the tartar remains untreated, it can lead to infections being passed in the animal’s body, which can damage the heart, lungs, liver and adversely affect renal function. Our goal is to offer natural products to supplement your pet’s dental and oral hygiene routine.

Steve’s Real Food Freeze-Dried Goat MilkReal Food Freeze-Dried Goat Milk

This line of products creates a bridge from kibble feeding to raw feeding. If you are feeding a dry diet and know there are benefits of raw food, but do not want to deal with the hassle or cost of switching a dog to a raw diet, you can simply enhance their diet.

Each freeze dried goat milk enhancement is packed full of carefully chosen superfoods that are designed to alleviate specific health issues. They package it in a reusable glass milk bottle, so all you need to do is fill it with water, shake, and pour over your pet’s food, or give it to them as a treat or bedtime snack. When you run out, you can buy the 8 oz. refill containers and reuse the milk bottle to make another batch of your favorite Steve’s Real Food product.

Coming in three different varieties, they have the DogNog (great for inflammation), CarnaForage (great for detoxing or bad breath), and CannaGurt (great for pain or anxiety).

Orijen Freeze-Dried TreatsOrijen Freeze-Dried Treats

These freeze-dried treats are prepared without cooking, so they retain all of the natural goodness of the company’s authentically fresh ingredients.

The freeze-dry kitchens are equipped with nitrogen tunnels which flash-freeze the fresh ingredients at extremely low temperatures (-60°F), locking in their life-giving nutrients. Then an 18-hour freeze-drying process gently converts the water frozen in the ingredients into ice vapour, without creating any liquid.

This means only water is removed from their fresh ingredients, leaving behind all their goodness in concentrated form, creating a nourishing taste experience your dog and cat will love.
