100% natural, vegetarian and preservative/gluten free, this chewtastic cheesy treat in made with a blend of nutritious yak and cow's milk, that is compressed into blocks and smoke dried for 28 days. This gives them a unique, tangy cheese flavour. A pinch of salt and lime juice coagulate the mixture together, forming a rich, solid cheese block that is low in fat and packed with Calcium and energising protein. These blocks of tasty goodness were originally made for human consumption and are still eaten today by Himalayan people and their dogs.
Effortlessly delicious, this treat will give your pooch's pearly whites a fang-tastic workout. A dog's natural inclination to chew helps to remove tartar and plaque, keeping his teeth and gums clean, healthy and strong. The lumpy dimples down both sides of the chew occur during the manufacturing process, when the hardened milk is compressed. These bumps will help scrape plaque off the sides of the teeth, acting in place of a toothbrush and promoting good oral hygiene.
Age is just a number; like a fine wine or mature cheese, these treats only get better with age. In fact, they last longer the older they are and have a 5 year shelf life! This plain old block may look bland on the eye, but the healthy, delicious secrets that lie within this Himalayan treat are most certainly worth the chewy effort. Now all that’s left is for your doggie to reveal them with his teeth. Gnashers at the ready, pooch!
