A Bite into Dino Bones:

All though these 17″ long bones are kept away for tha larger breeds, we think these bones are a great present for any size dog.  Made from real USDA Approved beef these bones are baked with a natural, savory-smokey flavor and are meant to last, offering long lasting gnawing action… without splintering.  Made in the USA, these X-Large bones can assist with eliminating boredom and stress relief/frustration, by teaching positive chewing behavior.  Reducing plaque and tarter buildup on teeth, as well as, relieving teething pain and toughening gums, these Dino’s are a great source of calcium and the soft marrow inside is a potent source of protein and emollients for GOOD health and Shiny Coats.

V for Venison Hiccups!

We thought long and hard about making this post about VEGGIES, but instead, have decided to show off the CRUNCHY Venison Hiccups!

VH318

Made from pure Venison Gullet, these satisfying chews maybe small, but provide a punch of Protein and “good-for-your-bones Chondroitin (healthy joint function).”  A snack that will keep your dog content between meals, this Hiccup is made for the aggressive chewer, in the size of a medium to large dog.  Way better than a Synthetic/Plastic Bone, these Gullets make for fantastic dental chews,  cleaning those Canine Fangs by Fighting Tarter and Preventing Plaque Buildup.

Approximately 4 inches in length and 2 inches in width, Venison Hiccups contain NO Artificial Preservatives/Chemicals and are USA MADE.

Tendons | Nom-Nom-Nom!

Looking for a chew that doesn’t stink? Screen Shot 2014-02-28 at 11.08.25 AM

Well then, you are in LUCK! Available in Beef, Bison, Lamb and even Kangaroo, Tendons are a perfect substitute for the FUNKY smelling Bull Pizzle.

Although these high in Protein, low in fat chews are slow roasted to prolong nutrients and strengthen gnawing toughness, they are easily digestible (stomach safe). Commonly derived from the achilles tendon, these chews vary in different shapes and sizes (Hector Bite, Wishbone, Lamb Twizzler, Flossies etc.).  Given the opportunity to chew from different edges and angles, these fibrous chews are known to be great teeth pickers, scraping away built-up plaque, preventing bad oral bacteria (bad breath).

Quick Tip: looking for this chew to last a bit longer, try a thick tendon, like the Hector Bite. Looking for more teeth picking action? Get a Flossie or Spiral Tendon.  Although these tendons are Skinnier and unlikely to last as long, your dog will put in some teeth cleaning work by trying to gnaw at this chew from it’s many different twist and curves. 

A wonderful chew for dogs of all ages and sizes, check out a savory Bully Tendon at thaMUNCHbox.com! Hopefully soon, we will have more tendons to drool for.

MUNCH love!

RAWESOME BONES!

What do we, at tha MUNCHbox, think about Raw Bones?

Well, the title of this post should clearly let you know.  But just in case you didn’t catch on, we think Raw Bones are…RAWESOME!

Not just providing more essential nutrient and minerals than processed bones, Raw Bones are also a smart substitute for struggling with your dog to brush their teeth.  Assisting with stimulating saliva enzymes, preventing plaque buildup and gum disease (especially in the upper back molars), and removing trapped food particles from in between teeth, a Raw Bone sure does make a RAWESOME after dinner treat.

Although Raw Bones are less prone to splinter, It is still wise to NOTE that not all dogs can have bones in general. Meant to be gnawed/chewed on, we do not recommend bones to dogs who prefer to chomp a bone into smaller chunks to swallow; this is why we think it is important to know what type of chewer your dog is.  Nevertheless, it’s best to always be in the surrounding area when you give your dog a bone, to monitor the intake.

Available in different shapes and sizes, with meatier being better than just bare, be sure to choose the right size bone for you dog.  As an example, when giving a raw bone to a small dog, be mindful that they have delicate teeth and jaws, so a big raw knuckle bone is probaley not best for them, but for a pit bull, this will definitley work.

Whether you give your RAWESOME bone frozen (nice summer treat to work at) or thawed out, remember, moderation is key.  Allowing your dog to chew/gnaw on a Raw Bone for an hour may prove to be too much for them, especially if they are known to have a sensitive stomach. If your dog is new to Raw Bones, Start with smaller time intervals, say 10-15 minutes and if your dog doesn’t experience an upset stomach, slowly increase the chew/gnaw time.  Likewise, a Raw Bone a day may be too much, but one every Friday, might be just right.

Pork PUM-PUMP-PUMPERS!

Great for dogs of all sizes, Pork Pumpers are, you guessed it…Pork Hearts!

Oven-baked to PAWFECTION, with no additives, hormones, preservatives or chemicals (of any kind), these LOW FAT, HIGH PROTEIN muscles will whole-heatedly make its way into any dogs heart. As with any chew or bone, these 4-6” long organs provide CHEWING/GNAWING action that promotes DENTAL HYGIENE.  Being a single-ingredient chew, Pumpers are a brilliant alternative for dogs who are sensitive to other common proteins, like Chicken, Beef and/or Lamb.  Although some may claim Pork to be bad, we think it’s a great meat/protein to rotate into your dogs diet to BOOST their immune system.

MOOOO tubes!

Round here, MOOOO tubes are the chew of choice for tha Labradors.  We think it’s because of these 3 things:

1.) Helps Build and Support Cartilage

2.) Lubricates tha Joints

3.) Aids w/Joint Stress – due to exercise or Physical Activity

An ideal, Natural source of Chondroitan and Glucosamine, MOOOO tubes are simply the trachea of a cow and are perfect for any size dog.  Whether you get a 3in, 6in or 12in, these hollow chews get an A-plus for creating some gnawing action for cleaner, healthier teeth and gums.  High in Protein, we like these chews to be free of additives, preservatives, chemicals (of any kind) and hormones, but dried to perfection to seal in the juicy, fresh flavors.

As with any Chew, MONITOR your dog.  Chomping for chunks to swallow instead of gnawing or chewing, is a NO-NO!
