Benefits

health-benefits
  • Bison bones are much harder than beef bones and don't break easily.
  • Chewing on bison bones not only removes plaque buildup and cleans teeth and gums but also cleans the digestive tract. The bones contain nutrients that help maintain a healthy stomach.
  • Bison bones are rich in calcium, phosphorus, and other minerals that help promote joint health and mobility in dogs.
  • Because of their large size, bison bones are safer and more suitable for large and giant dog breeds.

Risks

Servings

serving-suggestions
  • Bison bones are best given to dogs raw; you can also buy air-dried bison bones from the pet store.
  • Always supervise your dog when feeding bones.
  • If your dog's diet already has complete calcium, limit edible bones or only feed them as occasional treats.
  • Chewing should only last for 10-15 minutes. Bones with marrow left may be refrigerated and given again the next day.
  • Always remove the bones after your dog's eating session.
