A raw meaty bone (especially knuckle bones) encourages the dog to use both their front and back teeth to nibble and tear off meat, as well as scrape the teeth clean on the tendons, cartilege and bone.
Honestly, I would not believe everything the standard Vet says... after all, they make loads of money with those yearly teeth-cleanings.
oh wow, those ARE really clean for a 7 year old. I guess you can't doubt the cleaning ability of bones after seeing that picture. But they can be a choking hazard. I've tried various treats for my dog - such as raw hide, bull sticks, and Bright Bites. They all seem to do a great job. I guess it's just a matter of how often you give it, and when during the day.
Are you giving your dog the bones daily?
