The 2011 Global Pet Expo took place in Orlando, Florida earlier week, and the Dog News Daily, (the online magazine for dogs) gave the Best In Show award to Himalayan Dog Chews. Straight from Nepal, the Himalayan chews are made according to the centuries-old recipe that mountain farmers chew, even today, while they are working in the fields all day.
Not only are the Himalayan Dog Chews safe for humans, but they are 100 percent pure food: no preservatives. The ingredients - yak and cow milk, salt, and lime juice - make a cheese, a very hard cheese, that is intended to create a long lasting snack. The animals that produce the milk are believed to be sacred and have never been exposed to hormones, antibiotics, or chemicals.
A farmer's cooperative in Nepal makes the dog chews for the Himalayan Dog Chew Company in Seattle, Washington, so. by purchasing these natural long-lasting chews for your dog (or yourself), you are satisfying your dog's need to chew, keeping him in good dental health, and supporting workers in one of the poorest nations in the world. (The company has a Beyond Fair Trade policy.)
The Himalayan Dog Chews are sold in many pet stores and you can order them online from Amazon.com. The manufacturer advises that if you have a 'chewer,' even a small dog, you should get the large size Dog Chew, as it will not hurt your dog and it will last all the longer!
That's the buzz for today!
