Are natural chews and bones good for my pet?
A-Bones are a good source of minerals and nutrients that help satisfy your dog’s appetite. Chewing stimulates saliva enzymes and helps prevent plaque buildup on teeth and gum disease.
How do I know which Chew is right for my pet?
Whether you want to give your dog a real bone, bully stick or any other natural chew, it’s important to choose a bone that matches your dog’s chewing rate and chewing habits. Also, consider your dog’s size and choose a chew that best fits his mouth and teeth.
How do natural chews help prevent negative chewing behavior?
Natural Chews help satisfy your dog’s innate urge to chew. They also help to relieve teething pain, giving your puppy a beneficial item to chew on when teething. If you encourage your dog to chew on bones from puppyhood on, chances are he’ll choose a bone over your shoes, books, television remote, and so on. Offer a variety of bones to maintain your dog’s interest.
Are your real bones safe for my dog?
In our experience, we’ve seen very few health problems resulting from dogs chewing on real bones. However, any item that goes into your pet’s mouth should be monitored closely. We recommend supervising your dog’s chewing sessions and taking away any small pieces your dog may break off. Our long-lasting, natural chews are designed to wear down slowly, rather than splinter. We do not recommend giving dogs bones left over from food you eat, since you cannot be assured of the hardness of the bone – particularly after it has been cooked.
Are Natural Chews appropriate for older dogs?
Provided that your older dog has healthy teeth, Natural Chews are extremely appropriate. The act of chewing provides entertainment and mental stimulation that can be very beneficial to older dogs – especially those who are not extremely active.
We just recently added a puppy to our family? Are natural chews safe for her?
A-Puppies love to chew! It’s how they first explore and learn about the world around them. While it can be frustrating for pet parents, it’s completely natural. Like human babies, the teething process can be uncomfortable. The only relief they can find is to chew on something…anything…to soothe the pain.
During teething, many pet parents discover their new puppy chewing their way to comfort, through shoes, remote controls, furniture legs and baseboards. It’s best to manage this proactively. Offering natural chews for teething relief is the best way to appease to their natural instincts while reinforcing proper behavior. Our Natural Chews provide an easier (and less expensive) solution to helping guide them. Also, popping the treat into the freezer is a great way to help sooth those gums and teeth.
How long do Natural Chews last?
All dogs have different chew personalities, so each bone or chew can have varying lengths of “chew time”. We recommend that you identify what type of chewer your dog is before picking the right natural chew for them. Much like humans, dogs like variety, so it’s perfectly natural to explore multiple chew options to find your pet’s favorites.
My pet loves Bully Sticks. Are they a good option?
In a word, yes! Bully sticks are easily digestible, unlike some other chews or treats. Rawhide, for example, can be difficult to digest for some dogs. Bully sticks, on the other hand, are highly digestible, which means that they break down easily in your dog’s stomach. They also don’t splinter like other treats, so you don’t have to worry about broken off pieces causing any internal injuries. As an added bonus, Bully Sticks are low in fat and made from grass-fed, free range beef.
I see your product comes from South America? Is that important?
Yes. For generations, South America has been globally revered the quality of human-grade beef produced from the region. The stringent quality measures in human food also apply to your pets. The best Natural Chews are made from free-range beef cattle fed on grass. It is also important to us that our sources only use beef that are antibiotic and hormone free. Lastly, we avoid any chemical or preservatives in the manufacturing process to ensure your pet only gets the very best.
Once I bring them home, how do I store them?
Natural Chews can be stored for a long time before you give them to your dog. Natural Chews can be stored in any cool, dry location and will remain fresh for months. Many pet parents have report keeping them in their original package and storing in their freezers, for future use. These frozen chews can help cool your pup on a warm day and also provide soothing relief to gums while teething. Most dogs will take anywhere from a few hours to a few days enjoying their chew, so it’s important to supervise your pet at all times.
