Thank you for posting Dottie and it's a timely reminder to take the health of our dogs teeth seriously. Kibble in my opinion is no friend to a dogs teeth, certainly raw feeding goes along way in keeping a dogs teeth clean but even so I do believe you need to brush them also. I have tried many dog toothpastes over the years and have now gone back to Dorwest Herbs Roast Dinner Toothpaste (with a baby toothbrush) which I used in the eighties, this seems an improved product from those days. I've been very impressed. It's basically sage oil with a gritty texture and it goes along way and at a good price against some of the other products.
I started using this again on a toy breed dog with beautiful white teeth and they have remained so, he's on a complete raw diet, it would be good to hear from other users of their experience.

Thanks for posting Anita. As Dottie says it's good to hear your dog is doing so well on a good diet and the added bonus of lovely white teeth.

Raw Proof is now on Vimeo, Jonathan Self  was too poorly to give his presentation, President, Nick Thompson, stepped in, plus other coverage from the Raw Vet Feeding Society 2018 conference

A recent study shows there are high levels of toxins in some dry cat foods available in Switzerland.

Yes, Dottie an interesting and serious investigation. However I will continue to passionately feed raw complete with of course sensible hygiene standards. Granted that many do not wish to do so for a variety of reasons. Paleo Ridge Raw put hygiene instructions on their product labels whether other companies follow suit or whether they put hygiene instructions in with the order I don't know. The pioneers on dog food nutrition and longevity such as Dr Karen Becker, Rodney Habib and our own Nick Thompson plus others talk passionately of getting off of processed food and on to raw. I don't think I've ever read a passionate article on feeding processed dog food.

Noticed Cotswold Raw offer a 3kg trial pack including free postage, (Woolcool liner), three active 80/20 mince and three active 80/20 sausage packs, in 500g sizes. This may be the first time I've seen raw food packs as low as 3kg, as the norm seems to be 5kg minimum to keep it frozen. Woolcool must be doing it's job.
