The Benefits of Incorporating Raw Bones into Your Dog’s Diet

Raw bones are more than just a treat for your furry companion. They serve as a wellspring of essential nutrients, promote natural behaviors, bolster emotional well-being, and contribute to dental health. At The Raw Food Dog Co, we recognize the significance of raw bones and offer guidance on seamlessly integrating them into your dog's dietary regimen.

Unveiling the Merits of Feeding Raw Bones to Dogs

The advantages of raw bones extend beyond ordinary chew toys. Their abrasive nature contributes to impeccable dental hygiene, negating the need for manual teeth brushing. This natural cleansing action curbs oral problems, fostering healthier mouths. Raw bones encourage your dog's instinctual chewing behaviors, enriching their mental engagement and thwarting boredom-driven tendencies such as destructive behavior.

The prolonged chewing experience of meaty bones not only satisfies your dog's innate desires but also aids in maintaining clean and healthy teeth. Unlike cooked bones, which pose risks due to their brittleness and potential to splinter, raw meaty bones are the superior choice. They offer a rich source of protein, minerals like calcium and phosphorus, and the added benefits of glucosamine, chondroitin, and vitamin C through the cartilage. This dual benefit makes raw bones an optimal meal replacement option.

Selecting the Appropriate Bones

Choosing the right bone size is crucial to ensure safety and engagement. Opt for larger bones that require more time to consume, as opposed to smaller bones that might pose a choking hazard, particularly for dogs unaccustomed to bone consumption. Customization is key—smaller breeds can enjoy chicken necks and rabbit pieces, while medium-to-large dogs find satisfaction in small carcasses like chicken frames, duck frames, and whole rabbits. For larger and giant breeds, consider offerings such as veal brisket, veal necks, and beef brisket. Additionally, crunchy and long-lasting bones like wallaby tails cater to dogs of all sizes, providing hours of entertainment.

Incorporating Raw Bones: Frequency and Benefits

Raw bones should comprise approximately 10% of your dog's raw diet. This can manifest as a smaller portion integrated into regular meals or larger bones provided once or twice weekly. The Raw Food Dog Co goes a step further by advocating the inclusion of bone broth in every raw meal. Bone broth enhances digestion and supports joint health, encapsulating a holistic approach to your dog's well-being.
