High-quality raw bones are a highly beneficial part of raw feeding which supports your dog nutritionally, physically and mentally, whilst appealing to their primitive nature. Dogs are natural hunters, and although domesticated dogs may not need to hunt for food, they still have an instinctive craving to chew and gnaw, which releases endorphins and promotes feelings of comfort and ease.
Nutriment’s natural duck bones for dogs are high-quality and 100% British. Free from fillers, preservatives and grains commonly found in commercially available dog bones, our raw duck bones for dogs perfectly complement the fundamental principles of raw feeding. Recommended by our in-house canine nutritionists, these nutritional and enjoyable raw duck bones are perfect as occasional treats and training aids. Each bone is covered with succulent raw duck meat to allow your dog the chance to rip, tear and gnaw the meat directly from the bone to keep them entertained and nourished.
Can dogs eat duck bones?
Biologically appropriate foods, treats and bones are always first choice when it comes to canine health. Synthetic, processed dog chews and bones can contain potentially harmful and artificial ingredients and preservatives, and risk splintering which can cause serious harm to your dog. Raw, natural duck bones for dogs provide great mental stimulation, contribute to optimal health and are a low-fat, lean source of protein and other nutrients.
Raw bones are much softer than cooked alternatives. When cooked, the structure of bone itself changes and becomes brittle, leading to increased incidences of splintering. Because of this, you should never feed your dog cooked bones.
You should always supervise your dog with any type of bone.
What benefits do raw duck bones provide your dog?
Our raw duck bones for dogs are made from 100% British duck with no artificial ingredients or preservatives. Packed with protein, vitamins and minerals, which contribute to optimal canine health, whole raw bones promote a happy and healthy life for your dog.
Nutritious raw duck on each bone
Duck bones are nutritionally loaded with B-vitamins like niacin and pyridoxine, immune system boosters like zinc and selenium and Omega 3 fatty acids which will promote a healthy coat and skin for your dog. While duck meat itself has a wide-ranging array of benefits including high-quality protein and naturally low-fat content, feeding your dog a raw food diet also provides an array of physical and mental health benefits which are unique to raw feeding.
At Nutriment, we are wholeheartedly committed to raw feeding and the numerous health benefits that a biologically appropriate diet provides animals. With an uncompromising approach to high-quality, premium ingredients, and a passion for enhanced, complete raw meals, Nutriment’s raw food products are the optimal solution for supporting your dog’s health and happiness.
Good source of protein
High-quality protein is imperative in a dog’s diet. Protein is important to help support a number of bodily functions for your pet such as repairing and building muscle and other tissue, form new skin, grow hair and much more. Raw duck is a naturally lean meat, so is a great way of feeding your dog protein whilst keeping fat content to a minimum.
Variety of flavours
Traditional protein sources for dog food are chicken and beef. Whilst Nutriment’s chicken and beef raw food products are extremely high-quality, nutritious and tasty, it’s also important to keep your dog’s food varied to maintain interest and enjoyment. This will encourage your dog to eat a balanced variety of biologically appropriate foods to ensure that their nutritional requirements are being met, whilst their mental health is also kept stimulated. Nutriment’s raw duck bones for dogs are a great way of introducing alternative protein sources to your dog’s diet.
Supports skin and coat health
Due to the richness in vitamins, minerals and nutrients available in raw dog food, treats and bones, you'll notice a difference in your dog's coat in its shininess, softness and manageability when combing or brushing. Dogs detox a lot of waste through their skin, so the artificial additives, preservatives, colours and dyes that are common in many processed dog foods can cause skin irritation. Nutriment’s raw foods, bones and treats contain no added, biologically inappropriate ingredients meaning less scratching, rashes and skin irritation for your dog.
Supports digestive health
Dogs have a smaller and more efficient digestive system than humans. This means that their food is processed and absorbed quicker and more effectively. With raw food and treats, there are no added artificial ingredients or ingredients which are difficult to digest, meaning that raw food can be safely and comfortably digested as per your dog’s natural digestive process. This also means that there is less waste and a decrease in the amount of poo your dog will produce.
Supports oral health
Dental care is incredibly important for dogs. Poor oral health can lead to painful symptoms and diseases that can require serious medical intervention. A raw, biologically appropriate diet is most suited for dogs and will promote optimal oral health. Canine teeth are designed to tear off meat from bone, and their strong jaw is able to crunch through bone; Nutriment's raw duck bones for dogs help to promote healthier teeth and gums in this way.
