I have noticed that keeping my dog’s teeth white is a challenge. I am using a Kirkland brand dry food. Wondering if the stain is a result of the food coloring used by Kirkland. Does anyone know of non-color added food that meets the Dog Food Advisor standards for a quality product?
I just looked quickly at the ingredients in the Nature’s Domain kibbled diets and I don’t see artificial coloring listed. It’s actually a myth that kibble helps to clean teeth.
Things like raw, meaty bones will help and I’ve seen some food additives that are supposed to help, but the best way to keep teeth clean is to brush them just like you would your own teeth! : ) I use a special toothbrush with a longer handle and an enzyme toothpaste just for dogs.
