Everything you have always wanted to know about Himalayan Yak Cheese Chews
What is a Himalayan yak cheese chew for dogs?A Himalayan Yak Cheese Dog Chew is a type of dog treat made from the dried cheese of yaks and cows that live in the Himalayan mountain region in Nepal. It is a natural, long-lasting chew that is high in protein and low in fat. The cheese is often formed into a stick shape and is a popular treat for dogs. It is known for its unique flavor and texture and is a good source of protein and nutrients for dogs. They are also considered very safe and digestible for dogs, making them a great alternative to rawhide chews. The ingredients are Yak milk and Cow milk with a pinch of lime juice and salt. Almost all Himalayan Yak Cheese Dog Chews are made from a mix of yak and cow milk. It is rare to have a Himalayan yak cheese chew to be made from yak milk only, usually it is a mix. However, soon we will have our BEST cheese chew made in a Human Grade Milk processing facility in Europe, that is made from just cow milk and a pinch of salt
Are Himalayan yak cheese chews healthy for dogs?Himalayan Yak cheese chews can be a healthy treat option for dogs when they are made from natural ingredients and do not contain any added chemicals or preservatives. They are high in protein and provide essential nutrients that are beneficial for a dog's overall health. They also help to promote dental health by cleaning teeth and promoting healthy chewing habits. However, it is important to keep in mind that, like any other treat, Yak cheese chews should be given in moderation and should not make up a significant portion of a dog's diet. It is always recommended to consult with a veterinarian before introducing new treats to your dog, especially if your dog has any dietary restrictions or health concerns.
How long does a Himalayan yak cheese chew for dogs last?The length of time a dog Yak cheese chew lasts can vary depending on the size and thickness of the chew, as well as the dog's chewing habits. Always buy the right size for your dog. Smaller, thinner chews may be consumed more quickly, while larger, thicker chews may last longer. On average, a Yak cheese chew could last anywhere from several hours to several weeks for a dog. It also depends on the dog's size and if they are a heavy chewer or not. If the dog can break chunks from the cheese chew, it means that the size is too small for the dog or the cheese chew is not prepared properly. We have created the "good," "better," and "best" categories based on the consistency of these chews after importing and selling thousands of them. We drop test samples from our shipments, 24-36 inches, onto a wooden floor to simulate your dog dropping the chew from their mouth onto your floor. This is more relevant with the larger chews and dog breeds. Some of the "good" chews are just as strong and hard as the better or best chews, but the chances of them breaking in the "good" category are much larger than in the "best" category. Nearly every packager in the US sells Himalayan cheese chew in the "good" category. Hardly anyone imports the "better", manufactured cheese chews, let alone imports the "Best" cheese chew from Europe.
Can you give Himalayan yak cheese chews to a young puppy?It is generally safe to give Himalayan Yak cheese chews, also known as Chhurpi, to a young puppy, as long as it is done in moderation and the puppy does not have any known allergies or sensitivities to the ingredients. However, it's important to keep in mind that puppies have different nutritional needs than adult dogs, and their diet should be carefully tailored to support their growth and development. Puppies have a higher need for protein, fat, and certain minerals and vitamins to support their growth and development. Chhurpi is high in protein, which can benefit a growing puppy. However, it is important to consult a veterinarian or a professional nutritionist to ensure that the puppy's diet is balanced and complete. It's also important to check the ingredients of the cheese chew that you're giving to your puppy to ensure that it does not contain any harmful ingredients such as artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives (Ours do not). Some products may also be flavored with ingredients such as garlic, onion, or other substances that may be toxic to dogs and should be avoided. It is also important to remember that puppies are more likely to chew on things and may choke on small pieces of food, so it's important to supervise the puppy while they are chewing. In conclusion, while it may be safe to give Himalayan Yak cheese chews to a young puppy, it's important to consult with a veterinarian or professional nutritionist to ensure that the puppy's diet is balanced and complete and to supervise the puppy while they are eating.
