In trying out new treats for your dog, it’s completely understandable to want to be informed about the safety and benefits of those new treats. Which means that, chances are, you’ll eventually find yourself asking: “ Filled Bones safe for dogs?” This article answers that question and explains why they are worth trying out.
Whether you’ve never given your dog a bone or are used to giving your dog a classic White Bone or Meaty Bone, it can still feel like a huge leap to try out a Filled Bone. We completely understand! We’ve heard every question you can think of from curious pet parents: “Are Filled Bones safe for dogs?”, “Are Filled Bones good for dogs?”, “How are Filled Bones made?”, etc.
We wanted to answer a few of those Frequently Asked Questions below and list some of the benefits as well.
We do our best to make sure that every Redbarn Bone is as safe as possible for your dog. Steps are taken to minimize the possibility of breaking or splintering, but it’s important to keep in mind that no natural bone can come with a guarantee against breaking or splintering. We always recommend that you supervise your dog when any dog bone treat is given. If your dog starts breaking off large pieces or the bone gets too small to chew safely, be sure to take the bone away for their safety.
“How are Filled Bones Made?”
Our Filled Bones are sourced from USDA / FDA approved facilities and always made in the USA. We start with all-natural beef femur bones that are a natural source of calcium and phosphorus, and we never add chemicals, preservatives, flavors, or colors to our bones. They’re even cleaned without the use of any harsh chemicals and then cut to the appropriate size using a saw. This is true for all of our White Beef Bones as well!
To make it a Filled Bone, we then use our patented technology to fill them with one of our seven delicious flavors: Lamb, Cheese & Bacon, Beef, Peanut Butter, Greek Yogurt, Peanut Butter & Jelly Duo, and Greek Yogurt & Jelly Duo.
Dogs naturally want to chew, and our Filled Bones are an excellent way to satisfy that natural desire. Your dog will love the taste of the filling and work hard to get every last bit of it, adding to the chew time it takes to get through the treat. The benefit of a two-part treat is that there is still an all-natural bone to chew on after the filling is all gone!
Dental Health Benefits
Hard dog chews are great for aiding dental health because of the required mechanical action of chewing. As they chew, they help strengthen their teeth and reduce plaque and tartar build up. While it won’t replace regular visits to the vet, they can be helpful for doggie dental health maintenance.
