February is Dental Health Month!
What better way to celebrate than by helping your dog or cat get shiny teeth and healthy gums, without paying big bucks to get their teeth professionally cleaned? That’s right: there’s an easy way to improve your pet’s oral health that is safe, natural, and effective — raw meaty bones.
Raw meaty bones (by that, I mean raw bones that still have meat on them) contain a lot of different nutrients, but they are primarily comprised of calcium and phosphorous. Calcium in particular is essential for strong teeth and bones, not to mention muscle contraction (for example, the pumping of the heart), blood clotting, nerve impulse transmission, and more.
