Himalayan Dog Chews
Many people realize that rawhide is bad for dogs, but they are tired of giving their dogs bully sticks and deer antler chews. Another option that your dog can use are Himalayan dog chews.
What are Himalayan Dog Chews?
They come from an ancient recipe of the people of the Himalayas. The people used them as a snack while working in the fields. They are 100% natural and contain yak and cow milk, salt, and lime juice. There are no chemical or preservatives. They are long lasting and offer the prefect alternative to bully sticks and deer antler chews. They come in three different sizes, so all dogs can enjoy them.
Frequently asked questions about Himalayan Dog Chews.
Isn't milk bad for dogs? At time raw milk can be difficult for dogs to digest, but once it is made into cheese, the proteins are altered and make it more easily digested. Many times people are encouraged to use small pieces of cheese for training. Additional because these are long lasting chews, the amount digested at one time is minimal. About 10% of dogs experience loose stools or gas the first time they use this product.
Isn't salt bad for dogs? The amount of salt is very small and is used as a flavor enhancer, not as the flavor itself.
What happens if my dog swallows a large piece? These chews are fully digestible, so there should not be any issues.
Where are they made? They are bought directly from framers in rural community co-ops of the Himalayas.
What size should I give my dog? No size is too large, you can always give larger chews to smaller dogs without any problems. The small Himalayan Chews are good for dogs under 20lbs, the medium Himalayan Chews are for dogs 20-55lbs, and the large Himalayan Chews are for dogs bigger than 55lbs. For those dogs are that very aggressive chewers, they should be given the largest size and observed when first given the chew.
