Nothing says 'I Love You' to a dog more than a nice, meaty bone!
Bones are a good source of minerals and other nutrients and help satisfy your dog's appetite. Chewing stimulates saliva enzymes and helps prevent plaque buildup on teeth and gum disease. And a dog chewing on a bone is less inclined to excessively scratch or lick his paws.
In addition, bone marrow has a number of health benefits for your dog besides their teeth. The adiponectin has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease and certain cancers. Marrow also supports kidney and digestive function, it can aid in repairing wounds and will help generate new red and white blood cells. All that healthy stuff in such a tasty bone – what a great thing!
