We do not feed our cats or dogs dry food nor do we condone the feeding of dry food to ANY ANIMAL!!!!!!!!!!!

Below are some OUTSTANDING links full of information and knowledge to back my seething hatred for dry food... I hate dry food so much... I hate the lies and the half-truths bent to manipulate and mislead... otherwise, I'll just rant, and no one needs that nonsense, so I provided links instead. :D

---------------------------------------------------------------- (Cats Dental)----------------------------------------------------------------


Dry food does not clean your cat’s teeth... and most of the time they just swallow it whole anyway without actually chewing it in the first place. Even if they do chew some pieces of the starch(sugar) ball that is used to make up dry food, since they cannot brush their teeth or floss properly, problems like gingivitis become a HUGE health risk to their life because the starch(sugar) ball slime sticks to their teeth. Dental disease is the #1 most common health problem seen by veterinarians and by the age of 3, virtually all dogs and cats have some degree of dental disease. So to help keep our cats teeth clean we start at an early age by brushing their teeth with a pet toothpaste and a tiny finger brush. At 3-4 weeks they get raw! Raw meaty bones, chunks of meat and gizzards also help to clean their teeth. Even if you do use raw meaty bones to clean teeth, an annual appointment at your vet should be done just for their general well being, a good cleaning should also be provided to get under the gum line. Even raw meaty bones cannot get in the gum line, however it will help with tartar. If you are feeding a ground raw meat diet, it does help that the enzymes in the meat will not stick to the teeth like dry food will. Remember a yearly vet visit and cleaning is very important. Just as getting your yearly dental work done!
