Dental Benefits for your dog

The chewing of bones and chew bones can help improve dental hygiene, which in turn results in a reduction of bad breath. Bones are hard and so as the dog chews them, their teeth become cleaner and gums stronger. Processed food for dogs is soft so it leaves plaque on the teeth which ultimately leads to bad breath or heart disease.

As plaque builds on your dogs' teeth, besides this just leading to bad breath and dental problems, there is a health risk for your dog. While the plaque on their teeth starts to harden (which happens when the plaque is mixed with their saliva, which contains salt) it is highly likely that it will lead to tarter, which could then ultimately cause periodontal disease.

What is periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease is the most common dental issue in dogs. It is the build-up of plaque and tartar on the teeth and will cause inflammation of their gums, which is very uncomfortable and sore.

Thankfully, while your dog chews on its delicious bone, this can remove the tartar build-up which will result in your dog being less likely to suffer from gum and dental issues.

More about Pets Elite Products

The fundamental belief is that for your dog's health raw treats and raw food are the most biologically appropriate. This is why the majority of our treats remain raw and are simply just dried. 

Mold is a risk when it comes to moisture. Our secret solution? Dehydrating our products as much as possible and not using artificial preservatives! We also do not use any bug-repelling chemicals, which means that the natural ingredients in our products can last for quite some time if stored under the right conditions (away from external moisture and bugs).

It is normal for your dog to want to chew everything!

It is instinctive for your dog to want to chew. It is not just that your puppy is going to want to chew everything while it is teething, it is in their nature to want to chew even as they grow up. So instead of your puppy/adult dog chewing your couch, shoes, or even your brand new handbag, give your dog a bone.


Do smoked dog bones need to be refrigerated?

The smoking process naturally cures the meat, so refrigeration isn't necessary. If you do decide to refrigerate your smoked bone, it will allow for longer chewing time for your dog. It doesn't have to be in the refrigerator for a long time, you can also just leave it for up to an hour before giving it to your doggo.

How long should a dog chew on a bone?

If your dogs could have it their way, they would chew for hours, But this isn't a good idea for them. It is recommended that you should give your dog about 10/15 minutes of chew time a day and only once or twice weekly.

Your dog should be supervised while chewing a bone, especially before the bone becomes splintery. These little splinters could be very dangerous for your dog, if ingested, it could puncture your dog's stomach or intestinal wall. Make sure to always keep an eye on your dog while you give them their bone to chew for all the health benefits, but when the bone is nearing the end, take it away.

Is it okay to give my dog a bone with stomach problems?

It is highly recommended to not give your dog a bone if it has previous stomach problems (like Irritable Bowel Syndrome) until you have spoken to your vet about it first. It could upset their stomach further.

When is the best time to give your dog a bone?

It is a good idea to give your dog a bone once they have eaten their regular food. There are two reasons for this, they will already be full so they will be less likely to be possessive of their bone. The second reason is this bone aids in teeth cleaning, so it will remove a good amount of plaque from their teeth.

Also, remember that a bone should never be a substitute for food for your dog.
