natural pastures beef oxtail chew
beef tail bones are an excellent recreational chew for targeted front teeth cleaning. we recommend removing this product once the meat has been stripped from the bone from dogs under 60lbs, or those with a history of tooth injury. stripped bones may be stored in the freezer and used for making bone broth for your pup!
always supervise your dog while chewing, and ensure they have access to fresh water. we recommend introducing this product in 20 minute chew sessions.
about the different sections:
tip - the end of the tail and boniest part. this part of the tail is consumable for dogs 40-50lbs and over. as always, we do not recommend allowing this portion to be consumed by dogs with a history of tooth injury. these pieces are 6-12" long and approximately 1/3 lb raw (small) to 1/5 lb raw (large).
mid - the mid section. a good ratio of meat to bone. these pieces are 4-8" long and approximately 1/2 lb raw (small) to 3/4 lb raw (large).
base - where the tail attaches to the body. the meatiest section with a higher amount of fat. grassfed/finished and pasture raised fat is an excellent source of vitamin D. these pieces are 4-7" long and range from approximately 1 lb raw (small) to over 1.5 lbs raw (large).
