4 Reasons Raw Bones Are Good for Dogs

Should you feed your dog raw bones?

4 Reasons Raw Bones Are Good for Dogs 4 Reasons Raw Bones Are Good for Dogs On the fence about whether to feed your dog raw bones or not? Let me help you. Here are 4 reasons why it's a good idea to "˜give a dog a bone"˜.

Reason #1: Raw Bones Keep Their Teeth Clean

4 Reasons Raw Bones Are Good for Dogs

This is not an old wives tale, it's the God's honest truth! Raw, meaty bones are Mother Nature's tooth brush for dogs. When they gnaw with the sides of their teeth it scrapes off all the plaque. And when they rip and tear at a bone the strings of meat act like dental floss between their teeth. True story!

Reason #2: Raw Bones Make Them Salivate 4 Reasons Raw Bones Are Good for Dogs

You might be amazed at how important saliva is for dogs, and here's why... When dogs are fed things like raw bones they salivate. When they salivate over something like a raw bone, the saliva they create is thick, mucus-y and packed with enzymes. Those enzymes actually create an immunity toward parasites, allergies and illness. But in order to create those healthy enzymes they need something extremely tasty; processed food just won't cut it! There's a reason they're carnivores, it's just how their bodies are designed. So if you want your dog to be healthier, give them a bone. I know, it seems gross. But if you consider it their own built in natural immunity, why wouldn't you give them a bone? If you're worried about the mess, maybe give it to them outside in the yard instead of in the house! raw bones hydrate dogs

Reason #3: Raw Bones Hydrate Dogs

Believe it or not, for dogs there's a difference between drinking water and hydrating. Dog's can't actually hydrate from just water. In order to properly hydrate, they need the moisture from meat. Reason being is that meat contains specific vitamins, minerals and nutrients that dogs need. Those nutrients absorb into a dog's system and properly hydrate their organs. So as they ingest the meat from the bone, the moisture containing the nutrients they need hydrates and nourishes them. Huh! raw bones

And Finally, Reason #4: It Makes Them Happy

And if those reason's don't convince you maybe this one will. It makes them happy! You ever watch a dog chew a bone? Every fiber in their being is happy. They lick, they salivate and they work their jaw muscles. Their inner wolf feels like a stealthy hunter and their tails never stop wagging. Not to mention the enjoyment of the amazing flavor of a juicy, raw, meaty bone! They feel a genuine happiness for hours!

Never Feed Cooked Bones:

never feed your dog cooked bonesJust a reminder to never feed cooked bones. Two things happen once a bone is cooked. One, the integrity of the bone becomes brittle and can splinter. If they swallow those splinters, they can cut their esophagus and endanger their digestive system. And two, once they're cooked they lose all those natural juices dogs need for hydration. Not to mention they no longer work to clean their teeth. So if you do decide to give your dog a bone, make sure it's raw!

Rear Bench Seat Cover

I have purchased several seat covers from area pet stores and have returned them. I love the one I got from 4Knines because it was easy to install, it's shaped just like the bench seat in my car, its nice looking and it doesn't slide around. I have a large dog and a medium sized dog and the cover stays put! Thanks, 4Knines!

Seat cover

We have 2 big dogs and an hour and a half trip to the lake house. The lab sheds black hair everywhere on the tan leather, the Goldendoodle but he has long nails and left little holes in the seat of the car I had before. Got the new car and immediately ordered your cover, it came in quickly, was easy to install and saved the new car lots of damage. Love it! Recommend it highly!
