Raw Bones for Cats
Nutriment offers a wide selection of raw bones for cats. Adding bones to your cat’s raw food schedule can be very beneficial. Cats, although domesticated, have a natural urge to hunt their prey and tear the flesh from the bone. While your cat won't be out in the wilds hunting, you can help satisfy that instinct with meaty raw bones and treats.
When your cat chews on bones, she will be helping to keep her teeth and gums clean by scraping off surface plaque that can cause serious dental issues. The chewing motion can also massage the gums for added oral relief and health. Each meaty bone is packed with a wealth of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals.
Can My Cat Eat Raw Bones?
Yes, it possible for your cat to eat and fully digest raw bones. Actually, it has health benefits too!
Offering raw bones for cats with your regular raw feeding schedule will support good oral health with bones while adding new textures to the diet.
By feeding raw bones, and a raw diet, you are avoiding any processed ingredients, grains and starches, and additives and preservatives. These kinds of ingredients tend to stick to your cat's teeth, giving the bacteria that cause oral disease a place to sit and breed. Raw meaty bones for cats are carbohydrate-free, reducing the chance of food sticking to the teeth.
