Before (he was getting maybe 1/3 raw at this point)


Before (on 1/3 raw)


Two months after the original pictures


Two months after the original pictures. His top teeth on this side look much worse than the other side. But with a cat who hates having people touch his mouth I could only get the one side. He got sardines afterwards to make up for these pictures!

Rajah is fifteen and was eating all canned till I got him. He doesn't like dry food so I don't know if he ever has had it though I assume he has.

That's quite impressive, especially those bottom back teeth!
I'm hoping that his top back teeth improve now that he is eating larger pieces of meat. He ate his first (small) chicken neck a few days ago - I am assuming that will clean his teeth much better than chicken breast w/ ribs...

So hopefully I can post more pictures in a few months:)

I'm suprised how well raw feeding as taken care of his plaque so far. Now for those top teeth!

I knew, going into the raw diet, of the dental health maintenance benefits but I discounted the stories of dental health improvement as most likely being wishful thinking-based.

Not any more!

A year ago, my vet said my oldest cats (only about 2 years old at the time!) needed a dental cleaning; at their last visit, he half reluctantly / half admiringly admitted as to how they actually might not. LOL!

Well, I was going to update this thread with new pictures sometime so here goes:





As always he got to have a full can of sardines afterwards. I have pictures to prove that but I am unsure if I can post them as you can't post a picture of a cat eating raw (however the sardines are canned)?

So instead here is a normal picture of him taken a month or so ago:

Absolutely gorgeous cat, FurryFriends!

Great pix! I wish I had gotten pix of Lincoln's before -- the vet told me it was time to do his first dental. 6 mos later the same vet looked at his teeth and said they looked awesome. Only thing we did was switch to raw!
