How To Choose The Right Bone For Your Pet

Raw bones are an essential part of any dog or cat’s diet, but how do you know which variety is right for your pet? Primal’s bones are available in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and nutrient profiles to suit your pet’s individual needs. Read on to learn how to find the right bone to keep your fur baby happy and healthy.

Why Bones?

Whether you want to treat your pet to a recreational bone or supplement their diet with one of our raw meaty varieties, bones are a great way to enrich your pet and elevate their health. Raw bones offer dental benefits, nutritional support, and can help address behavioral issues. At Primal, we source our raw bones from trusted ranches in the United States and New Zealand. Our raw bones are antibiotic- and steroid-free, with no added hormones, to give your dog or cat the quality they deserve!

What are the dental benefits?

Fidos and felines have powerful jaw muscles, and regular chewing helps to keep them healthy and strong. Many popular dental chews contain starches which cannot be broken down by dogs’ and cats’ saliva, causing plaque buildup. Primal raw bones contain zero starches, and have live enzymes which help maintain healthy flora and aid in breaking apart and killing bad bacteria in their gums. Raw bones work to scrape away plaque and tartar while massaging your pet’s gums, promoting a clean and healthy mouth.

What are the behavioral benefits?

Dogs and cats are biologically designed to enjoy and excel at chewing, but they can become stressed or destructive without a way to express this urge. The mental and physical stimulation of chewing a bone is a great way to keep your cat or dog out of trouble! Bones help remedy the desire to chew while also elevating your pet’s nutrition and overall health.

What are the nutritional benefits?

Primal raw bones provide your dog or cat with protein and active enzymes which aid in digestion. Calcium and “wet” glucosamine are present in a bioavailable form, which means your pet can easily absorb the nutrients to keep their joints and bones strong and healthy later in life.
