The Benefits of Bones
Raw meaty bones are an important part of a healthy diet for your dog, providing essential nutrients as well as promoting good oral health. The raw meaty bones and whole carcasses act like a toothbrush and dental floss, cleaning your dog’s teeth as they rip and chew through their meal.
There’s an excellent selection of bones available for your dogs – including chicken and turkey necks, whole herring, or meaty beef ribs. Try to avoid over use of recreational bones, such as beef, bison, or venison knuckle or femur bones, as these bones are extremely dense and can lead to dental damage for your dog.
For dogs that are prone to guarding their food or reacting possessively around their raw meaty bones, check with your professional trainer as to how you can maintain a beneficial relationship with your dog.
