Yakers natural dog chews are made in the hills of the Himalayas using a mix of skimmed yaks and cows milk. A very small amount of lime juice and salt is added to harden the milk, which is then compressed into blocks and traditionally smoke dried for 28 days to give the cheese chews their unique flavour.
Isn’t salt bad for dogs? Salt in large amounts is harmful for dogs as it is for humans. YAKERS only use a tiny amount of salt along with lime juice to get the cheese to harden at the very start of the manufacturing process. The salt content in Yakers natural dog chews is less than 0.1%.
Aren’t dogs Lactose Intolerant? Not all dogs are lactose intolerant, but if they are there is less than 1% Lactose in YAKERS. The reason is that both the Cream and the Whey are removed from the milk as part of the manufacturing process, meaning that the levels of lactose are very, very low.
Use the whole treat!
Once your dog has enjoyed their YAKERS chew, simply take the small end piece that is left (usually around 3-4cm) and place it in the Microwave for 30 to 60 seconds. The end piece will hiss, and begin to puff up, much in the same way that Popcorn does, just without the Popping noise! When the Piece has stopped puffing up, it will be Hot so you need to let it cool first before giving back to your dog. The texture of the YAKERS dog chew totally changes to now be a soft, honeycomb crumbly treat – delicious!
