So I'm looking into switching my cat to a raw diet.
But she's around 10ish years old and is missing two of her 4 canines. The other two are on their way out.
But all of her molars are in tact wtih no signs of decay (they were cleaned around a year ago and I've been keeping up on brushing alright, so they're still in pretty good shape).
How important are canines with a raw diet? Should she be able to eat raw and bones just fine?
The way I understand cat dental anatomy is that the canines are used primarily for grasping and holding on to prey during a hunt. But I just wasn't sure if she would use them much with meat?
Secodly, have any of you had experience switching an adult cat over to raw? Am I best off tryng to offer her some ground meat to supplement her kibble and work towards whole chunks and bones and then getting away from the kibble entirely?
