In the fourth of a series of posts on brushing a Vizsla's teeth, I took this video of Bailey taking on a raw turkey wing. Bailey has a large head and mouth and a raw chicken wing would be gone in seconds. Not much scrubbing action was taking place.
Now Chloe on the other hand, has a small mouth and a chicken wing is perfect.
The turkey wing has an added bonus. I fed Bailey the wing just after we came in from a run in late this afternoon.
Turkey is full of the chemical tryptohan, which is a natural sedative.
Now he has been peacefully resting on the couch all evening with teeth that are markedly cleaner.
The raw bones completely dissolve in their digestive tract, and I see no traces in his stools. RAW is the key. NEVER COOKED!
Thank you to my friends John and Juliet, from the UK, for enlightening me on this great way to clean teeth and give the dogs some fat, minerals, and protein while making their teeth bright white.
