Top tips:

  • Choose the right size chew for your dog (your local pet shop can help you with this)
  • Raw bones are fine, but don't feed your dog cooked bones as these can splinter and cause injury
  • You may want to separate your dogs if you have more than one dog in your home, raw chews are high value!
  • Follow good food hygiene procedures
  • Dispose of the chew after 24 hours

 

Don't forget to supervise your dog with raw bones, chews and treats just to be on the safe side. 

If you are feeding bones as a treat (as opposed to as part of a DIY raw diet) aim for 1-3 bones a week. If your dog becomes constipated or their poo turns white, we advise cutting down the amount of bone in their diet.
