There’s a new type of canine chew on the market that actually lives up to all the hype surrounding them – Himalayan Dog Chews. It’s easy to see why they’re already tremendously popular with the mutt-loving set. To start, Himalayan Dog Chews, which are essentially an extremely hard cheese, are made with a total of just four ingredients – yak milk, cow milk, salt, and lime juice. That’s it. No wonky preservatives, additives, or colors added in. The chews are made and fairly sourced from small-operation Nepalese farmers, though the company itself is based in the USA.
So what makes this cheesy chew stand out from everything else out there? They’re very safe, when they’re given properly, compared to other edible chews like rawhides or beef bones, since they don’t break off in little pieces that could choke or injure your pup. Can we talk about long lasting durability? Most dogs go through ordinary pet chews in a matter of minutes, perhaps hours. Himalayan Dog Chews will last for hours at least, or even weeks in many cases, as your dog has to slowly work away at the chew to even soften it enough to scrape small parts away with their teeth. While smell, carpet staining, or bacterial accumulation can be an issue with other kinds of chews, this product has a mild odor, doesn’t make a huge mess, and, since there are no dyes or meat products in the Himalayan chew, it won’t stain furniture or carpets either. They’re highly digestible! In fact, Durometer tests have even been performed on the chews to determine how quickly they would dissolve in stomach acid – which, by the way, happens to be much faster than bones, antlers or rawhide. They contain no meat protein – this is a great benefit for those owners of long-suffering pets with beef, chicken or grain allergies.
