Here are some of the benefits as to why we should feed raw bones to our dogs:
Bones are a great natural teeth cleaner, they exercises the jaw, gums and neck muscles. They are fantastic for mental stimulation and are full of nutrition value for your dogs. Most of all, dogs LOVE to gnaw on bones!
If you haven’t ever tried to feed a raw bone before, give it a go – The Dogs Choice are giving our customers a chance to try before you buy, just add ‘like to try a bone’ to the notes on your order and we will give you a free bone for your dog. What could be better?
Happy New Year from The Dogs Choice – have a prosperous and fulfilling 2016
At this time of year we are all talking about getting more exercise and eating more healthily but what about our pets?
Why not start your dogs year on a fantastic, natural diet. What could be better than what your dog would choose for themselves? You will be amazed how much your dog will appreciate and respond to a natural raw food diet.
If you are changing from a dried food diet to raw I suggest start gently by choosing 1 protein – either tripe or chicken mince is a good starter – check their stools and if they look ok, introduce another protein – repeat this process every 1 or 2 weeks or so still checking stools, until he/she is receiving a balanced variety.
It is quite common for a dog to have loose stools on the changeover, this usually only lasts a short while and things begin to firm up in no time. You will notice that on raw your dog does not defecate as much as on commercial, this is due to most of the food is utilised and the waste product is less. Every bit of goodness is being processed and used by your dog – fantastic!
Puppies can be fed raw straight from weaning and can progress to fish/wings/carcass etc from 6 -8 weeks. Minces and minced carcass are similar to the regurgitated food they would get from their mothers in the wild. Build slowly onto chunkier meats and soft bone – meaty chicken ribs, necks or wings are good to build their jaw strength.
For puppies – Chicken wings should have the wing tip cut off at the third joint, as, should the puppy be tempted to swallow it whole, the double joint of the wing is a major choking hazard for pups.
Puppies cut teeth between 4 & 6 months so, good meaty bones of a suitable size are fantastic for them to gnaw on.
