Choose RDBK Meaty Beef Shanks as an excellent recreational raw bone option for dogs and cats.
- The meat portion of Meaty Beef Shanks can be fed as a meal replacement and include variable amounts of meat, connective tissue, and generous amounts of marrow (fat).
Recreational raw bones provide minimal nutritional value to your pet's diet. However, the advantages of offering your pet these marrow bones as a natural chew are numerous:
Dental Health: Effectively cleans teeth and massages gums
Jaw Muscle Exercise: Helps exercise and strengthen the jaw muscles.
Mental Stimulation: Provides an engaging endorphin-releasing activity for mental stimulation.
While offering recreational bones to your pet comes with numerous health benefits, it's crucial to be aware of potential risks. Understanding and implementing best practices for managing these risks will help you choose the safest bone options for your pet.
How to Choose the Safest Raw Bones for Your Pet:
- Know your pet’s history and chew style before offering bones. Take the RDBK bone quiz for a list of recommended bone options based on your pet’s size and chew style.
- Always choose a bone larger than your pet’s mouth capacity.
- Do not give recreational bones to aggressive chewers or gulpers.
- If you are uncertain if bones are right for your pet, please reach out to our education team, a holistic nutritionist or a raw-supportive veterinarian.
