The Longest Lasting All-Natural Dog Chews
Dog chews can be helpful to dog owners for several reasons; which include keeping a healthy mouth, teeth and gums, staving off anxiety, nutritional support, distraction and mental stimulation. For most dogs, these can be provided by the vast majority of the all-natural dog chews we have on our shelves at Natural Cornish Pet.
However, there are a select few that will need something a little hardier to benefit from all the things a good quality chew can bring.
Larger dogs will often need a chew that has a little more bite to it to avoid them wolfing them down too quickly. This is especially true in breeds that have powerful jaws, such as Japanese Akitas and Huskies. Doggy chews that last longer are also great if you want to keep costs down, which many of us will be aware of given the recent uptick in the cost of living.
So we thought we would round up some of the longer-lasting chews we have on our shelves here, at Natural Cornish Pet, so you can make a well-informed decision next time you shop if your dog requires a chew that gives that little bit more.
Why Some Dogs Need a Chew That Lasts Longer
Most dogs have the natural urge to chew, it helps to keep their dental health in tip-top condition and their jaws strong. Dogs in the modern world will also often use chewing to relieve stress and anxiety. Some dogs are just naturally more aggressive chewers than others and will destroy conventional chews in a matter of seconds. These dogs will tend to need a longer-lasting chew to satisfy these urges and garner the health benefits that chews can bring. Powerful breeds like the ones mentioned above will often be stronger chewers and need something that allows for a longer chewing time without giving in to their formidable bite strength.
Long Lasting Chews For Doggy Dental Health
Long-lasting chews can also be a good thing for all dogs, whatever their jaw strength, to allow the gums and teeth to allow for the gums to be massaged and develop blood flow in them, scrape away plaque build-up and help in the reduction of tartar. All of this will help to prevent tooth decay and gum diseases which can sometimes lead to more serious health issues in our dogs.
