Product Review: Himalayan Dog Chew

This is one of the treats that my dogs absolutely love! 

Himalayan Dog Chew
Ingredients:  Yak and cow milk, salt and lime juice.
No preservatives or addatives.
This is by far one of the best treats that I have bought for my “kids”.  Made from an ancient Mongolian recipe of only four ingredients, this unique chew is quite dense and lasts a long time.  It is completely digestible and is more than 50% protein and almost no fat.  It is a dried cheese also known as Churpi and the Tibentan, Nepalese and Mongolian people have eaten this for centuries. 
It keeps their interest for long chewing sessions during the day and night.  In fact, my Bolos will gnaw on it for as long as I let them!  Sometimes one of my Bolo babies carries it to their favorite spot, to gnaw on it in peace and away from everyone that might try to “steal” it from them.    I like to set limits though, so it remains a treasured treat.   Also, since buying the Himalayan Dog Chews, I no longer buy dental treats, as this treat is a wonderful dental chew!
While I haven’t tasted it myself, I have heard that it tastes like cheese.  According to the makers of this chew, it is a treat that many people share with their pets.
If you want to try it: before giving it to your dog, put the chew in boiling water for five to ten minutes (depends on size) until it softens.  Use a sharp knife to cut off a piece for you then dry the chew for at least two to three hours.  To enjoy your piece of Himalayan Dog Chew, just suckle it like a piece e of hard candy.
In order to get the chew back to its original hardness for your pet, then dry the chew for twenty four hours.
Another thing I like to do when the chew finally gets down to small pieces, is either to place in the microwave for a thirty to forty seconds and make a Himalayan Puff, or boil it in water to soften it and then cut into tiny pieces and add it as a topping onto their food as a special treat.  With this product there is no waste!  It is also a perfect treat for dogs that have allergies to wheat, or beef!  While it comes in three sizes, I usually give my small dogs ( between 5 - 10 pounds) the medium size.  I reserve the small size for the little puppies starting when they are about 5-6 weeks old.  
I definitely give this product five stars, or a thumbs up!   I love the fact that it is 100% natural with no preservatives. For as many hours of entertainment it provides, you definitely get a lot of bang for your buck!  Oh!  Another big plus is that there is no or low odor… sometimes it smells faintly of cheese.  It’s much more pleasant than some of those puzzle sticks my puppies have tried.  In addition to all the other positive notes about this product, I love that it is a fair trade item that is created by the co-ops in Nepal. The cows and yaks are never given hormones or antibiotics.  They graze on open grasslands.

The chews are packaged in the United States and laboratory tested.
