The Benefits of Raw Bones
Chewing on a bone is an instinctual and stimulating activity for a dog. It keeps them amused while you're absent and can stop them from chewing on things you'd rather they didn't such as furniture, remote controls, books, shoes etc. Chewing also releases endorphins which creates a feeling of overall well-being.
Regular gnawing on bones and consumption of the calcium contained in bones can prevent tartar build up, gum disease and tooth loss, and helps strengthen your pet’s own bones. If you regularly give your dog bones, it will significantly reduce the risk of periodontal disease. Bones are also a fantastic enrichment activity which satisfies your dog's inherent need to chew.
Make the bones size appropriate for your pet. We offer a variety of sizes to accommodate all dog breeds.
- Always feed raw bones
- Don't leave them out for days to bake in the sun and become brittle
- Throw them away when your dog has finished with them.
- Cats should not be fed large beef bones (instead chicken necks, backs, legs, thighs and even breasts)
- Cats also enjoy whole quail, duck parts and turkey necks

There are misconceptions about feeding bones. As pet owners, we have often been told not to feed dogs and cats bones, due to risk of causing injury. Cooked bones of any type become brittle and splinter, which could potentially harm your pet if ingested.
Canines and felines are designed to chew, consume and enjoy raw meaty bones. Their strong teeth and jaws break and crush bone into pieces. The bones are swallowed and their stomach acid breaks them down; the calcium and other minerals are then absorbed.
