Dental Health Month
Northwest 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 onlynot eatenthere are only small amounts of these nutrients and the bones should be fed more as a treat than as a replacement for your dogs usual food.
