Benefits of Chewing
Ask The Meatman's 100% Natural Hickory Smoked Beef Bones provide a safe and enjoyable chewing outlet for your dog,
Chewing is a very natural behavior for puppies and dogs, and there are a number of benefits that chewing offers. Chewing is good for keeping tartar from building up on the teeth, (which helps prevent that dragon breath). When a dog chews on a hard object, it scrapes away the tartar that can build up and cause bad breath, staining, and periodontal disease.
If you offer your dog a bone, and she doesn't seem to care for it, don't give up! Some pets are finicky about their chews. Maybe she doesn't like the consistency of the bone, or perhaps it's too big or too bland. Whatever her preference, keep trying until you find the right bone. Just remember those benefits listed above.
Natural treats, like pig ears and natural bones, should be given to dogs the same as any other treat. They can be given occasionally but not more than once a day. The key here is that they are treats, not food.
