I saw the Himalayan yak cheese on shark tank and wondered about it. Is it gentle to their tummies?

She likes \ meat and rice chews by Earth Animal ("No-hide") a whole lot, but they're not as hard as bones (or rocks...). She had some stomach problems earlier, so i didn't want to introduce potential raw-related bacteria, etc.



Now, her stomach is all good, and I'd like to find something that's safe to give her that seems more like a rock (besides a bully stick), that satisfies her need to chew something hard. I was thinking of himalayan chews, but i haven't tried her on dairy in a while. Is there a raw but "sterilized" beef bone option that would be safe, or something along those lines?


I give cow knees and the dogs love them. They are not as hard as a rock, but my rough chewer is kept busy for a long time, and will keep going back to it for weeks. It is baked so no problems with the tummy. They are round(ish) much like the shape of a bit bigger rock, so that might be appealing. They are not greasy. There is a type of crumbly coating around the outside as a result of being naked. My dogs find this very tasty.

You can find them on chewy.com here...

Well, Cleo LOVES the yak cheese chew, and it does not seem to bother her stomach. In the evening when she is getting tired and overstimulated, but it's too early for sleep, i give it to her, and everything else in the room could disappear and she wouldn't notice! Only downside is that bits of it stick to her front legs. And after she goes to bed, I sweep the floor, and it's covered with what looks like grated parmesan!

I would like to try those cow knees, but i noticed they're cooked--is it okay to give cooked bones to a puppy? Or maybe it's cartilage, so that's ok, and if so, do they actually eat them or just chew on them?

I have tried all over looking for buffalo ears--no one around here has them, and they seem to be "out of stock" online. If anyone knows where to find them...?

The Yak cheese chews have been a gift from heaven around here!! Not only do they not stink, they actually have a rather pleasant smoky smell that reminds me of crisp winter nights. Peggy (who should start losing her baby teeth any day now) adores them, but not obsessively so. No guarding or burying. And she's been working on her first one for almost a week now. We got ours from Petco—a pack of 3 for $25.

Good riddance, bully sticks!!!

I have been very happy with these for Renn.

Most are quite large though at times you may get one that is a bit smaller. I find they last longer than the ones I had previously purchased at PetsSmart/Petco

Legs& Leashes21..I have had no problems with any tummy upset from himalayan yak cheese. The only thing is when they get small enough that your pup could swallow them you need to take them away. However you can wet them and microwave them, t hey then turn into a puff which the dog still enjoys eating once cooled.
