Giving my dog raw bones has helped clear the tartar build up on my dog's teeth. Even her vet said her teeth looked white. Thanks EC!
Yes! I've had my puppy, now six months of age, on a complete raw meaty bones diet, supplied with organ meat once a week. She's blazing with health, with pearly white adult teeth, doesn't smell.

Also worked wonders with a cat suffering from various ailments (sneezing, bad teeth, bad coat, urinary issues).
We have 3 big dogs - a chocolate Lab, a chocolate Newfoundland, and a Great Pyrenees/Bernese Mountain. We just had their regular vet visit and he was is awe over our dogs teeth. All of them are between 4-5 yrs. Old and their teeth are gleaming white, with no tartar at all. He asked what we did. We feed them half their food (high end kibble with no corn) am and then other half at noon. But at night we always give them a raw marrow bone to chew. We have a butcher that cuts them at 3" and we freeze them and give it to them frozen so it lasts longer. It also keeps them occupied at least a 1/2 hour, another bonus!
After reading so much on this site, however, I am going to start moving them and our 2 cats to an all raw diet.
Hope this helps someone with high vet dental bills!
