EVERY DAY RAW PET FOOD REQUIREMENTS:
EACH FEEDING SHOULD BE:
The advantages of raw food extend far beyond traditional mealtimes, enhancing not only your pet’s dental health but their overall well-being. Raw meaty bones, rich in protein and essential nutrients, play a pivotal role in upholding your pet's dental health by promoting clean teeth and gums. Furthermore, they offer mental stimulation and cater to your pet's natural chewing instincts, ultimately enhancing their overall well-being.
Raw meaty bones present a natural solution for maintaining your pet’s dental hygiene, serving as a superior alternative to processed bones or synthetic chews. As your pet chews on these nutrient-rich bones, their natural chewing actions help scrape away plaque and tartar buildup, significantly reducing the risk of periodontal disease and other dental concerns. Clearing away plaque from the teeth also eliminates a breeding ground for potentially dangerous bacteria, which can impact essential organs.
At Iron Will Raw, we recognize that choosing the ideal raw meaty bone for your pet can feel overwhelming. That’s why we offer a diverse selection of sizes and protein options tailored to dogs and cats of all breeds and sizes. When selecting a bone, opt for a size slightly larger than you think your pet needs to mitigate potential swallowing hazards. Introducing raw meaty bones gradually, with short chewing sessions of 5 - 10 minutes, allows your pet to develop the necessary chewing muscles over time.
Raw meaty bones typically fall into two categories: Recreational bones or Meal Replacement bones. Meal replacement bones, such as non-weight-bearing bones, can be provided during mealtime or as a substitute for a meal. Recreational bones, including marrow bones, offer extended chewing sessions and durability.
While raw meaty bones offer numerous benefits, it's crucial to incorporate them into your pet's diet in moderation to maintain a balanced nutritional intake. We recommend feeding raw meaty bones no more than 2 - 3 times per week to ensure a balanced diet and maximize dental benefits. Additionally, always supervise your pet during bone-chewing sessions, especially when introducing new bones, and provide bones in a controlled environment with ample space for each pet, particularly in multi-pet households.
