Raw Bones have been an essential part of the canine and feline species’ diet for thousands of years. They are a source of minerals and nutrients; they help to keep your pets teeth clean and provide your pet with physical and mental stimulation.
Ripping and chewing on bones is a natural instinct for dogs and cats and is a great muscle-building activity and work out, chewing a raw bone for 30 minutes is equal to a 30 minute walk for your dog! Bones are also nature’s toothbrush, the chewing removes plaque and tartar from teeth and freshens breath.
There are two categories to choose from when giving a bone, a meal replacement bone or a recreational bone.
A meal replacement bone is given to your pet instead of a meal and is intended to be eaten entirely. They are usually non-weight bearing bones such as necks, tails and feet.
A recreational bone is in addition to your dogs diet to keep them occupied and stimulated as well as improving oral health. They are weight bearing bones such as femurs, knuckles and marrow bones.
