Y’all know we are all about some good tastin’ treats. Ya also know my Lady is a stickler ’bout our teeth. Not sure why she’s so obessed with em, but who’s gonna argue with good tastin’ dental treats? Not us! That’s for sure! The other day we gots a chance to try some of them Zuke’s Z-Bones Grain Free Dental Chews! Boy howdy! If’n ya ain’t tried em, ya don’t know what you’re missin’ out on! I liked em so good that I ended up in a fight with my big brother Ozzy! I finished mine and was over there tryin’ to steal his crumbs. Ya got to be brave to tackle that big ole boy! Anyway, I guess he wanted his crumbs cause he got me told right quick like. As a matter of fact, them Zuke’s Z-Bones are all our favorites now! Where have they been all this time is what I wanna know?!
As usual, I only know if I like em or not. So, I’m gonna round up my Lady to s’plain all the particulars and why she likes em for us.
Here’s what my Lady had to say ’bout the Zuke’s Z-Bones Grain Free Dental Chews:
Y’all should know by now I am all about keeping my dogs teeth clean. Just as in humans, keeping the teeth and gums healthy goes a long way towards keeping them healthy. While there are a few ways of brushing their teeth, my dogs favorite way are the dental chews. Dental chews are a great way to freshen their breath and promote healthy teeth and gums. However, when looking at dental chews I look for ones that digestible, healthy and of course they have to be made in the USA. First, let me tell you a bit about Zuke’s:
Located in Durango, Colorado, Zuke’s is a leader in the natural pet treat category. Named after founder Patrick Meiering’s beloved Labrador Retriever, Zuke’s has been powered by passionate pet lovers for 20 years. The Zuke’s team is driven by the joy that comes from exploring and adventuring with their dogs, and the pursuit of a healthier life that makes pets and people happier. Creating treats with only the finest natural ingredients and no harsh additives or preservatives has been a priority at Zuke’s since day one. All of Zuke’s products, with the exception of the new Genuine Jerky featuring 100% grass-fed beef from New Zealand, are made in the USA. The company’s unwavering commitment to product purity and quality helped Zuke’s become a successful, sustainable, and philanthropic business.
We had never tried the Zuke’s Z-Bones Grain Free Dental Chews, but I had heard a lot of good things about them. Of course I jumped at the chance for the pups to try them out! So what makes Zuke’s Z-Bones so special? Zuke’s Z-Bones are completely edible, grain-free dental chews that helps fight the dreaded doggie breath and clean teeth the natural way by using whole food fruits and vegetables. Upon reading about them, I was most impressed with the fact that they are highly digestable. This is because they are made of a pea and potato-based protein. They also contain ingredients such apples, carrots and cherries. Not only are they digestible, they are antioxidant rich! They also contain alfalfa, parsley, rosemary and fennel. All of these ingredients naturally freshen breath by supporting digestion. Of course, the chewing action and texture of the Zuke’s dental chews help polish the teeth and maintain healthy gums. What the Zuke’s Z-Bones Grain Free Dental Chews DO NOT CONTAIN are wheat gluten, cornstarch or synthetic chlorophyll!
Not only do Zuke’s Z-Bones clean their teeth and promote healthy gums, they are also fortified with vitamins and minerals and completely free of chemicals, color dyes, harsh additives, or preservatives. So, yep! Zuke’s definitely has my A-OK approval.
Zuke’s Z-Bones Grain Free Dental Chews come in three tasty flavors, which include: clean apple crisp, clean carrot crisp, and clean berry crisp.
They are available in 4 different sizes:
- Mini Z-Bones for dogs 10-25 lbs
- Regular Z-Bones for dogs 25-60 lbs
- Large Z-Bones for dogs 60-90 lbs
- Giant Z-Bones for dogs 90+ lbs.
We had a chance to try out all the flavors and all the sizes since our pack includes pups ranging in size from the tiny to giant.
Itty bitty Little Bit is only 7 lbs. But, she thoroughly enjoyed the Mini Z-bones size in the clean apple crips flavor.
Sallie and Miss Molly enjoyed the regular sized Z-Bones for weights of 25-60. Molly is borderline for the large size, so she actually shared in one of those also. They loved the regular size in the clean berry crisp flavor.
Maggie, Brandi and Seager enjoyed the large sized in the clean carrot flavor. To give you an idea on size – they are a German Shepherd, Australian Shepherd and a German Shepherd/Lab mix. The large size was an ample sized treat for them.
Finally, my big Ozzy, at 125+ lbs (you have to love the big goof ball) knew his name was on the giant Z-Bones! His Z-Bones were also in the clean carrot flavor and he could hardly wait until I snapped the pic!
All the pups absolutely love them! I think it is safe to say that the Zuke’s Z-Bones Grain Free Dental Chews are THE most favorite dental chew yet! Funny how all I have to do is mention it is dental chew time to make their ears perk up. They all immediately head to their beds to wait on them.
You can find Zuke’s Z-Bones Grain Free Dental Chews at pet-supply chains, independent pet-product stores, natural-food retailers, and online for an SRP of $1.29 to $6.69 for individual bones and $18.99 for a multi-count pouch. And, did you know that Zuke’s donates a portion of all sales to The Dog and Cat Cancer Fund (DCCF)? I love that!
