BONES: Raw bones provide calcium, some phosphorus and an array of complex nutrients via living tissue and cells. Chicken and pork bones are high in fat, essential fatty acids and fat soluble vitamins. Bone marrow contains enzymes, antioxidants and iron.
Packed with a store of natural vitamins and minerals, many believe there's nothing better for a dog than a raw bone. Bones play a natural role of a filter, absorbing and removing toxins from the gut. In addition, gnawing and crunching of bones promote dental hygiene and you'll rarely find a bone fed dog with dental or periodontal related diseases.
