Will raw food help with plaque?
I took Krystal to the vet a few weeks ago because she had a bad case of vomiting up some canned food. The vet also checked her teeth, and I was startled to see that Krystal had such bad plaque. I feel really guilty that I haven't been checking her teeth regularly.
I have decided to switch to raw food because I feel it's a more natural diet for her, but she is having a very hard time keeping it down. I haven't started with bones or anything like that, since she is vomiting even small amounts of raw chicken thighs. Right now, she is having Natural Balance Venison mixed with ground rabbit, and small amounts of raw chicken (10-20 grams/day).
My question is: Has anyone noticed a difference in their cat's plaque after switching from canned to raw? Will the difference be even more noticeable after I start giving her bones?
I searched the forums but I couldn't find an answer.
