Beef Tracheas

Beef tracheas are made up of both cartilage and ligaments. These components act as a natural dental floss. They are also an excellent source of Glucosamine and Chondroitin. Chewing and tearing the beef trachea helps dogs to strengthen their jaw, neck, and shoulder muscles. Chewing also helps to keep the digestive juices flowing and boosts the neurological and immune system.  The trachea provides a natural joint lubricant for dogs. Beef tracheas are one of the more difficult foods to chew. They should be given as a recreational treat to large or aggressive chewers.

  Chicken Necks

Chicken necks contain chicken meat, fat, and bone and are a great source of Glucosamine and Chondroitin. They are also an excellent source of protein, calcium, iron, and Vitamin A. Chicken necks provide dogs with essential fatty acids and protective monounsaturated fat. B Vitamins can also be found in chicken meat. Chicken necks promote clean and healthy gums and teeth while exercising the jaw muscles and providing mental stimulation. The soft, small bones are easy to chew for cats and dogs of all sizes.

Chicken frames are chickens with breasts and legs removed. They still contain a healthy amount of meat (including the organs) combined with bone and cartilage.
