Does the Albright’s Pet Food or Aunt Jen’s Home Made Raw Diet Reduce/Prevent Tartar on Teeth – Why?

Raw meat pet diets do not produce tartar on teeth for one reason – enzymes. Raw meat left between teeth or along the gum line will self-digest because of the undestroyed natural digestive enzymes. On the other hand, cooked food particles can remain on the gum line, setting up the perfect host for bacteria to proliferate, causing tartar and bad breath. Excessive tartar can cause periodontal disease.
