PostSubject: Zukes Bones?   Wed Nov 16, 2011 1:35 am

I was out shopping for SS today and came across Zukes Bones. I had rememberd hearing about them somewhere on the forum but had never seen them before.

Anyway, I picked one up for Aevyn in Cherry Berry - the thing smelt absolutely horrible. He, of course, loved it.

Anyway, are these more the type of 'every now and then' treats? Also, this pet store only had two sizes - Mini and... well. Small. lol Are there other sizes? What would be best for huskys?

Thanks~! Very Happy

Zukes Z-Bones come in mini, small, medium and large,. I give Ginger and Storm large carrot crunch and apple. I rarely give the Cherry Berry flavor one because it sometimes turn their poop a reddish tint that freaks me out.

You can get them by the box at Natural K9 Supplies online - 6 for $11.49 (or something like that). Use BARK10 for an additional 10% off.

I give my 2 a bone every day which helps clean their teeth....and they get excited over them!

Oh, thanks! Very Happy Buying them in bulk I'll look into - Aevyn really enjoyed it. However, since it was small it really didn't last that long. lol

He got so excited for it though - the type of excited where he forgets what 'sit' and 'paw' means and instead tries to do all his tricks at once and falls face first into the floor instead.

That's funny you mentioned their poop turning a reddish color. One time my mom was watching my girls a day after they had a cherry bone and she called me at work freaking out because both the girls had bloody poop! Razz

We give them about two or three times a week.

Has anyone tried the Apple Crisp flavor? It's one if the newer ones that came out after they changed the name from z-ridges to z-bones. Never seen the apple flavor in stores, but its in a catalog I get. Wonder if it turns their poop green...

Looked at your post again Claudia and you did mention the apple. They seem to like it? Still wondering about the poo though!

Kale LOVES Zukes. Only give them once in a while though. I stocked up on the original flavor since it is Kales favorite Sad Sad to see it go.

I give the berry flavored (red) Zukes dental bones. My dogs love them and I honestly don't find them to smell bad at all. Quite the contrary, I think they smell alright for dog chews. I give the Zukes bones once a week and it does result in red stool the following day...if I forget that I gave them their Zukes the previous day then I sometimes freak out until I realize it was the chew. lol

This was taken a few months ago, as Ginger was still learning a 'standing high five' but she was so excited, she couldn't concentrate! And of course, Storm is, 'Just give me already!'

Aw, Ginger!

I"m glad to see that other huskies sort of forget themselves when that excited. Although, Aevyn will literally fall face first into the floor. Its a wonder he doesn't have brain damage some days.

I'm really surprised they're so popular and yet I'd never seen them before. I wonder if maybe they're just not as popular in Canada?

Oh my gosh Claudia I love Storm!!! And this may sound so odd but their colors really work so well together... Gingers light red with Storms light gray!
