Himalayan Dog Chews

Updated on March 7, 2012

If you are looking for a unique, long lasting, healthy chew for your dog than Himalayan dog chews might be just what you're looking for! These once obscure dog chews are becoming more and more popular as dog owners discover their many benefits. For most dogs these chews are long lasting, they are made of all natural ingredients, and dogs love them!


Himalayan dog chews are made from limited and all natural ingredients. Referred to as "cheese chews" by some dog owners, they are made from yak and cow milk, salt, and lime juice. Himalayan chews contain no chemicals or artificial preservatives. These chews are basically like a very hard cheese. Most dogs love the flavor. The recipe for Himalayan chews was developed, as the name suggests, in the Himalayas, where they where created as a long lasting snack for human consumption.

Because these cheese chews are so hard, they last most dogs a long time. Dogs must chew the treats for extended periods of time before very small pieces can be scraped off and eaten. Himalayan chews, unlike some other popular types of dog chews, are fully digestible. Despite the fact that Himalayan chews are a very hard cheese, if kept dry they have a shelf life of approximately 4 years.

Most dog owners know that chewing is good for their dogs. It help keeps them busy, keeps their teeth clean, and is a fun activity for them. But finding the right chew for each individual dog can sometimes be a task. Many commercially sold dog chews are not fully digestible, or contain low quality ingredients. If you are looking for the perfect chew for your dog, check out Himalayan chews. Not all chews are perfect for every dog, but many dogs and their owners have found Himalayan dog chews to be a great chewing option.

      Just to add my personal experience - My 20 lb dog loves these chews, one one large sized chew lasts him normally around 3 months, and that's with daily chewing.

      I know these are a bit more expensive than other types of dog chews - but since they last long for most dogs, and because of their higher quality ingredients, I feel like they are well worth the price :) I always make sure to keep them in stock for my dog.
