You’ve probably heard the idea that bones are good for dogs, but actually, it’s a bit of a myth.

In reality, bones can be a risky choice for our dogs. They can lead to broken teeth, mouth and tongue injuries, or even blockages in their digestive system—not what we want for our pets!

But not to worry, there are plenty of safe and enjoyable chew options available that your dog will love. If you’re concerned that your dog might be bored, swing by an Anexa Vet Clinic and have a chat with one of the Nurses. We can discuss some great enrichment ideas and recommend toys to keep your dog entertained and mentally stimulated.
