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 turkey bones for dogs are high-quality and 100% British. Free from fillers, preservatives and grains commonly found in commercially available dog bones, our raw turkey bones for dogs perfectly complement the fundamental principles of raw feeding. Recommended by our in-house canine nutritionists, these nutritional and enjoyable raw turkey bones are perfect as occasional treats and training aids. Each bone is covered with succulent raw turkey 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 turkey 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 turkey 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 turkey bones provide your dog?
Turkey is a naturally lean meat that is dense with nutrients which are beneficial to your dog: Tryptophan contributes to immune system health, Selenium contributes to thyroid health and protein is imperative for muscle and tissue growth and repair. As a lean meat, your dog will enjoy these benefits without the added fats of other protein-rich meats, perfect for a dog whose weight needs to be managed. Turkey is also highly digestible for canines (due to its naturally low-fat properties) and it’s a great option for dogs who experience allergies of dietary intolerances.
Nutritious raw turkey on each bone
Just as with human diets, it’s important to maintain a transparent view on the ingredients and processing methods of your dog’s food. Expensive, commercially available dog foods and treats do not necessarily have your dog’s health as a priority. Many commercial dog foods, dry or wet, have added (sometimes artificial) ingredients which are used to preserve, replace and fill out the food. Dogs are not designed to consume and digest these ingredients, which can lead to a negative impact on their health.
Raw diets using the BARF principles provide complete, natural nutrition for your dog: there is no need for any added ingredients or artificial chemicals. Nutriment’s natural turkey bones for dogs have the healthy benefits found in raw meat, without anything that can be harmful to your dog's body.
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 turkey bones for dogs help to promote healthier teeth and gums in this way.
Supports digestive health
Grains and other biologically inappropriate ingredients are often used as fillers in commercially available dog bones and treats. Dogs cannot digest grain in the same way many humans can, and this can often lead to unpleasant side effects. By offering raw turkey bones, you are providing a biologically appropriate dog treat which will not upset their digestive systems and will provide great stimulation whilst being highly nutritious.
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.
