5 Game-Changing Health Tips for You and Your Dog – Dr. Dobias Natural Healing

Rib Bones for Dogs


This month, I have also touched one of the most controversial topics – RAW BONES

Rib bones are one of my (well.. Pax’s) favourite bones. They provide incredible dental hygiene benefits and also serve as a rich source of essential minerals. 

A funny note: Did you know that the government of Turkmenistan suggest its citizens to chew on bones?  Personally, I would not go this far. Just make sure that your dog’s bones are raw (uncooked) as they become indigestible.

Multiple studies have been now pointing to lameness, inflammation, hypothyroidism, ligament injuries and even cancer as a result of the traditional neutering and spaying. Here is a link to the blog and how you can protect any future dogs from hormone related issues and prevent unwanted pregnancies too.
