Give a dog a bone

All dogs should get to enjoy the pleasure of gnawing on a bone! It’s great for their health and development too. Here are some tips:

  • Always feed raw bones for dogs, never cooked. Cooked bones can splinter and cause harm or choking.
  • Bones are nature’s toothbrush and help support healthy gums and teeth
  • Bones are an excellent source of calcium, antioxidants, minerals and proteins
  • Bones must be suited to the size of the dog. The dog should not be able to put the entire raw bone in its mouth.
  • Supervision may be necessary when you give your dog a bone (and it’s essential for puppies).
  • The guideline is for 1-2 raw bones per week for an adult dog, and 1 per week for a puppy.

Most dogs aren’t too fussy, being happy with the same food every day, but of course there are exceptions. If you need help choosing the right dog food for your four-legged friend, please Contact Us.
