1kg Pack of raw, meaty pork bones.
IMPORTANT SAFETY STATEMENT
When feeding raw bones, it is important to know your dog and understand his behaviour. To know whether your dog is a ‘gobbler’, or a careful eater. Whether he can pace himself with the bone, or whether you have to intervene and take it away because he’s eating more than is good for him. Or whether he’s chewing and biting it obsessively, hurting his mouth and/or teeth in the process. Get to know how your dog behaves when given a bone. The health benefits of raw meaty bones are significant, but for your dog’s safety it is important to understand what the golden rules are.
