If you’re interested what your pet eats, please watch a documentary about the pet food industry called Pet Fooled. Veterinarian, Dr. Karen Becker, appears in the film. She’s one of the reasons I became interested in raw diets 5 years ago. The film will be released on vimeo, iTunes, vudu, and cable on demand, January 10, 2017.
You have well-meaning loving veterinarians recommending foods not because they have sound nutritional background but because that’s all that they know.
Hoshi had a teeth cleaning today. I was nervous about having it done because of the anesthesia. He also had one premolar and two incisors pulled–which I wasn’t expecting. I’m glad he’s home safe. I think he peed himself at the vet. After he had his first cleaning, he’s been afraid of the vet.
I haven’t been brushing his teeth regularly until lately. He’s always so resistant to having it done, but I haven’t been giving him a choice. He won’t let me use a regular toothbrush, so I use finger toothbrush to clean his teeth. The finger toothbrush is bulky and doesn’t clean well.
I had to prepare Hoshi’s dinner differently because of his tooth extractions. I ground his chicken bones with a hand grinder. The grinder won’t fit our kitchen counters, so I attached it to Hoshi’s grooming table. Honestly, I wasn’t sure if it would work. I ground the bones four times using the largest blade.
