The only thing I can do here is comment. My dogs breath use to stink. It doesn't anymore. When it does another raw meal gets rid of it. I still brush her teeth 3 or 4 times a week.

Her teeth are looking great. But then they have always looked great. "If the grass is greener on the other side it might be because they took better care of it."

I can still get a picture if you want one.

Wow, these pearly whites make me want to eat raw, lol. If I can convince the family to switch the mutt to raw than I will certainly share some before and after pictures!

Even if you don't switch fully to raw you can give your dog meaty bones for teeth cleaning. It will save you alot of money in the long run because you won't need dentals or extractions.

I don't have any before pictures. Rosey had a dental when she was 8 or 9, and by the time she was 12 the vet said she would likely need another.

These are her teeth now. Not pearly white, but they are tarter free! Not too shabby considering shes nearly 14 years old! :biggrin1: Its hard to get a good picture one handed haha. Her tongue kept flapping out on the side so you can't see her bottom teeth...

Recently at the shelter we had a 5 year old bichon/poodle mix that needed 22 TEETH PULLED!!!! :( Poor little guy.. Makes me happy that my old lady hasn't had a single tooth pulled and likely never will!

Took some pictures this morning. Just started easing into the raw this week.

Mojo was very cooperative about me taking a photo, he held very still.
Risa, whose teeth definitely show her age and previous diet, was not so cooperative. I think I had to take six pics of hers and I'm not happy how they came out.
We may have to do round two.

Now if I can just get my card reader on this computer to recognize the SanDisk card...I can work on them. Hunting for drivers atm.
I think the flash might have been too much but I might be able to contrast/darken it to a viewable shot.

Should I take pics of all the teeth or is just one side of the jaw a good enough comparison for later on?

The more pictures you take the better. Preferably 1 picture of each side of the mouth, showing full dentition. Dog's mouth can be closed, just lift the lip up!

You lucky people! You can easily lift the dogs' lips up and snap a picture! Annie has such a pushed in muzzle and so much floppy lips I have to fight to get them all out of the way!

These are pictures from Annie 7 year old boxer. she has Oral tumors and gums growing over teeth due to an Autoimmune issue.

There has been a notable color difference. Freshness of breath. Her gums are going down back to where they should be and exposing her teeth again. Her tumors are getting smaller and a few have even gone away.

My dog's teeth are HORRIBLE and she has the breath to match. The vet wanted to put her under for a cleaning, but with her age I really think the risks are far greater than the benefit. I will definitely be taking before and after pics.

Hi, Emma, I'm also new here, but this was given to me as a great resource: How to Get Started | Prey Model Raw From what I've read you don't want to start with beef, or organ meats. But you can look in the raw section here for more information.

I would suggest starting your own thread, as you will get more replies!:smile:
(Which you will need because you do NOT want to start them on red meats...that is asking for a major "blowout", of the stool kind...not fun!!)
