Description

Give a dog a bone! Our Poppy’s Picnic Meaty Beef Knuckles take a bit more chew than our marrow bones, so only feed to dogs over 1 year and keep an eye on them while they have them.

The fundamental point to always remember is that bones must always be uncooked, NEVER cooked. When you feed bones, you can reduce the quantity of food in the evening meal to allow for the weight in the bones themselves.

A small marrow bone is the size of a clenched fist and our large marrow bone is the size of three clenched fists.  Offer our raw bones as a snack 1 to 3 times per week and keep an eye on them while they chew.

Defrost in the bag, placing in the fridge overnight. Once defrosted give to your dog within 24 hours. Perfect for active dogs

Feeding

Feeding bones is a great way to give your dog an appealing healthy snack, cleaner teeth, a good jaw workout… and a bit of chewing fun. It also helps relax them, allowing them to focus on a calm action for a while – think of it as canine mindfulness 🙂

Bones are full of nutrients vital to a dog’s health – minerals such as calcium, phosphorus and magnesium, glucosamine, fat-soluble vitamins (including A, D, E and  K) and essential amino acids – and the marrow contains blood-forming nutrients such as iron and copper. Bones are also nature’s toothbrush (no more carb-filled dental sticks!)  helping to keep a dog’s teeth clean and their gums healthy by preventing the build-up of plaque. 

If you have just made the switch to raw, leave it a few weeks before you introduce bones. Give them a bone large enough not to be swallowed in one gulp but small enough for them to manage in their mouths.
