Isn't milk supposed to be bad for dogs?
Milk in its raw form is what is difficult for dogs to digest. Once it is made into cheese, the cooking process actually alters the protein making it more easily digested. Positive rewards-based obedience trainings often encourage the use of small pieces of cheese as motivators for behavior. In addition, our product is extremely hard and quite long lasting, and because of this, the amount of dairy that a dog can consume at any one time is extremely limited.
Generally speaking, about 10% of the dogs that try this product experience an initial loose stool or gas that always resolves. There has never been a problem with repeated or lasting gastrointestinal issues.
Isn't salt/sodium supposed to be bad for dogs?
The amount of salt included in the creation of these chews is negligible. It is included by the people as a flavor enhancer, not for the flavor itself.
Is the cheese fattening for dogs?
The fat content is less than 1% of the whole product.
How are the cows and yaks treated?
Cows and yaks are raised in sheds, the way it has been done forever. No modern equipment or techniques are used in raising or milking the animals. They graze on open grasslands or are brought fresh cut grass by their families, and have never been introduced to hormones, prophylactic antibiotics, or other chemicals. Cows and yaks are considered to be sacred life-givers and are directly responsible for the improved economic situation of the family.
