Natural teethers


The importance of chewing

For our furry friends, the act of chewing is a normal activity that brings many benefits. You have surely seen a dog or cat with their eyes half closed in pleasure while biting a bone or toy:

Benefits of chewing for dogs and cats:

  1. Fight stress
  2. Powerful anti-boredom
  3. When chewing they secrete happiness hormones or endorphins
  4. They have an anti-frustration effect
  5. They help relaxation
  6. They assimilate the nutrients, minerals and vitamins of the food they gnaw
  7. They stimulate the gums
  8. Stimulates the muscles of the skull
  9. Fight tartar
  10. Helps maintain good dental health
According to the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association (OVMA), it is estimated that 90% of pets over 2 years of age have significant oral disease and of that 90%, 50% require immediate attention. We have commonly been giving our dogs chewy leather bones. These famous toys can be a deadly gift, as Rodney Habib from Planet Paws tells us: Not only do they end up stretching without breaking and can cause choking if our dog is alone, but they are full of chemicals that are very dangerous for his health. Here you can see the process of how a chewable leather bone is made ( video ).
At CRU we have the natural option of teethers adapted to all furry dogs, of all ages and races.
  • For beginner furry animals , Lamb Ears (for the smallest), Beef and Pork (for medium and large furry animals) will be the best option. These dehydrated ears are natural chewers that your furry friend can eat while releasing accumulated stress. They are also a way to incorporate some new protein into your diet.
  • If he/she is already a furry biter , Olive Wood will be the perfect choice for him/her. This teether is low in hardness, ideal for beginners to teethers or if your furry friend loves to chew on country sticks or wooden utensils at home.
  • Heather Root is indicated for furry dogs who need a greater mental challenge and for whom Olive Wood falls short. This teether is of medium hardness and will force your furry friend to figure out how to pick it up and bite it due to its irregular relief.
  • Deer Antler comes from the antlers that deer shed every year. As it is a bone, it is considered a hard chewer and will be ideal if your dog does not need as much mental exercise as to use Heather Root, but Olive Wood is too soft for him/her.
*The teethers are treated and sanded so that they do not splinter and your furry friend can enjoy them safely. They will break down into sawdust that you can eat as it will provide fiber, salts and minerals to your diet. They are also available in three sizes to fit your size. If your dog is not used to chewing, watch him and help him the first time by grabbing the teether with your hand. Discard small pieces if you think he will gobble them up. If your furry teether becomes dehydrated over time, you can re-hydrate it with olive oil or coconut oil and give it new life.

Good food is a gesture of love – enjoy your furry friend by giving him the best!
