Dental Health 







Just like us humans our dogs’ dental health is important to maintain and monitor. 

Gum disease is a serious issue that goes far beyond unsightly teeth and smelly breath.  Left to progress it can cause your Dog serious discomfort and they may loose teeth, get infected and move into the blood stream.  There constant. bacterial invasion at the gum lie is a daily drain on your pet's immune system.

This is why Dog's with gum disease are more susceptible to disease as the body can become flooded with immune debris, clogging kidneys, inflaming hearts, brain toxicity

As they eat, chew balls and toys ( PLEASE deter any stick chewing ), eat dirt etc bacteria & trapped food can build up between/on their teeth and turn into plaque and needs to be moved off

Here's some of my suggestions & options:

 I have fed my Dogs raw meaty bones for over 20 years without a problem.  My preference is:

  • raw lamb necks with all of the outer fat cut off.  For a closer to the bone chew I have all of the meat cut off.  These can be cut in half also; for dogs needing to watch their weight the marrow can then be scooped out
  • Lamb shanks ( puppies over 2 years ) The long fibre of the meat acts similar to flossing the teeth. These can also be cut in half and for Dogs and again needing to keep their weight down just scrape out the marrow
  • Raw turkey or duck necks for medium to large Dogs
  • Raw bones provide hydration, nutrition, calcium, fibre to clean the gut and anal glands out


A good natural option and get your puppy chewing these asap.  Ideal for massaging gum ( especially teething puppies ) keeping teeth clean, fibre, nutrition and so much more!  Carrots can also be frozen in Summer as a cooling treats


 Perfect food accessory for your pets.  You can spread your Pet’s food across the mat to gain the benefits at meal time or simply spread some canned tuna in spring water mixed with yoghurt 


 Helps calm and soothe your pet as they enjoy their favourite treat by by helping release endorphins through the promotion of licking.  The other benefit is that challenging your dog to lick the treat out of the patterned surface in order to be rewarded by the treat or food

 Acts as a great distraction: for stressful times, to slow down fast eaters, bath time, nail clipping, injury recovery as well as thunderstorms and fireworks……

 The Lickimat allows you to serve a wide variety of treats like these or combinations of: 

  • yoghurt
  • natural fruit ( apple, pear, banana ) 
  • veggies ( spinach, pumpkin, ) 
  • bone broth
  • canned tuna or sardines in spring water
  • Raw mince


The Lickimat surfaces promote pleasurable licking for both dogs and cats.  The licking action generates saliva that helps protect your pet’s teeth and gums, and can aid digestion as saliva contains enzymes such as Amylase.  The natural rubber surface also scrapes food particle and odour causing bacteria off your pet’s tongue, promoting fresher breath


The Lickimats can be smeared with your choice of wet toppings ( we advise to avoid peanut butter ) and then frozen as an extra cooling treat in the hot weather


  • Non-toxic food grade material
  • Freezer & dishwasher friendly
  • Hand washable
  • Durable material & design



Easily done!  Grab a jar of organic coconut oil and put 1/2 of the jar into another glass jar.  Mix through a tablespoon of bicarbonate soda to a paste.  You can then put some of this paste onto a toothbrush and brush your Dog's teeth top and bottom!   NO need to rinse as your Dog will swallow the paste: this is quite safe and 100% natural

Ingredients: Bicarb soda is derived from pure soda ash, also known as sodium carbonate. It is a naturally occurring substance that comes out of the ground in the form of minerals (nahcolite and trona) that are then refined and turned into bicarb soda.2 May 2019
