Meet Gromit, a yellow Labrador retriever born on March 13, 2007 (which makes her 10 years old!). Gromit is one of the Longevity Raw dogs that you see gracing the print advertisements, website and social media for the company. Below is one of Grom’s glamour shots and an up close and personal shot of her pearly whites!
(Longevity Raw would like to note that all dogs you see in our advertising actually eat our product!!)
The reason I wanted to write about Gromit in this blog is her nearly tartar free teeth! (See for yourself in the picture below.) Gromit’s teeth do not resemble what most modern dog’s teeth look like at 10 years old. This is all in thanks to her raw food diet. Raw bones are like a toothbrush for your dog’s teeth and gums, which keeps them sparkling clean without the need for dentistry. Look back in history, when did you last see farm dogs going to the vet for a dental procedure? They didn’t, and that’s because they ate plenty of meaty raw bones that cleaned and scrubbed their teeth as nature intended.
There are many reasons to feed your dog raw as opposed to a commercial dog food, and healthy teeth and gums is just one. Commercial dog food results in tartar buildup, which can result in infection. It also results in costly vet visits where your dog has to be anesthetised, have their teeth scaled and even worse removed.
