Stuffed Hooves – All Natural Dog Treats
Jones Natural Chews is always coming up with new ways to make dogs happy. It’s my job to tell you about them, as well as to spread the joy by doling out all natural dog treats. Today’s post is one of my favorite ways to do that – a giveaway! And the latest treat from Jones is one which I personally have been begging for for forever – Stuffed Hooves. I met a cute two pound puppy last week and made him happy with our Stuffed Hooves.
Tusk is a Shih Tzu mix, only eight weeks old. He’s the first dog his family has ever had, and he has them all wrapped around his little paw. But as you well know, puppies teethe. They gnaw and chew and bite! Tusk is no different, even at two pounds, so he needs a great chew treat which is good for dental health, and one he’d enjoy gnawing on for weeks to come. The Stuffed Hooves are the perfect dental health chew for teething puppies. Just ask Tusk.
Why is a Hoof a Great Puppy Teether?
The Hoof itself is a great puppy teether. Hooves are cartilage, not bone, so the splintering factor is greatly reduced. Because it’s cartilage, it’s not as hard as bone, and gums up a little as it’s chewed, but it’s still hard enough to scrub those puppy teeth and gums just like a toothbrush. The Hoof is easy to fill with other ingredients to entice a puppy – a tiny swipe of peanut butter inside is enough to get a dog chewing. Or you could just buy the Stuffed Hooves and keep your dog occupied longer.
That’s all provided your puppy can actually chew this Hoof. Poor little Tusk has a tiny mouth and is a tiny dog. He’s a problem solver, though, and he’s growing, so it will just take him longer to eat all of the filling. I told his mom to only give it to him for five to ten minutes a day until the filling is gone.
My Chewy, a 13 pound lap dog with a small mouth, ate the filling in about half an hour. I probably should have taken it away halfway through, since it’s a substantial amount of filling for such a small dog.
What’s in Stuffed Hooves?
So now you’re probably asking yourself what this magical filling is. I asked the same thing, and because they’re so new, we had to dig for answers. Here’s the list of ingredients:
- beef hoof
- cane sugar
- vegetable glycerin
- rye flour
- rice flour
- citric acid
- buffered white distilled vinegar
- vegetable oil
- mixed tocopherols (preservative)
- rosemary extract
There are more ingredients than other Jones Natural Chews, but only by one, and every single ingredient is natural, not artificial. They’re also grown and sourced in the USA. And this ingredient list made my dogs smile, as well as little Tusk.
