    bones and rawhides. I have never brushed a dog's teeth in my life and every one of them has had positive exams when they go to the vets. Not one vet wants to take my money for teeth cleaning.

    Dry food, crunchy biscuits, deer antlers and Plaque Off are keeping Caleb's teeth clean.

    We DO feed raw, but nylabones, antlers and other similar chews do help as well. Carrots seem to be a good thing to crunch up too and I think they help scrape the teeth a little.
