Benefits

health-benefits
  • Chicken bones are high in valuable nutrients such as calcium and phosphorus, which dogs need to maintain healthy bones. These bones are packed with low-fat protein, which is good for the muscles.
  • Chicken bones are rich in Omega 6 fatty acids and as well as glucosamine. These nutrients are excellent in keeping a dog's coat, bones, and joints healthy.
  • Raw chicken bones are ideal for dogs as they are soft and chewy. Unlike cooked bones, they are not brittle and do not splinter.
  • Chewing on chicken bones can stimulate dogs both mentally and physically. It does not only prevent boredom; it helps clean their teeth and gums. Chewing also exercises dogs' jawbones.
