Zuke’s Z-Bones

Road Trip Essentials For Your Dog

No more bad breath coming from the back seat of the car. Fight doggie breath the natural way and give him something to wag about with natural edible dental chews from Zuke’s. Zuke’s Z-Bones help freshen breath and clean teeth without having to use wheat gluten, cornstarch or synthetic chlorophyll. Their potato-based chews maintain dental hygiene by scraping and polishing your dog’s teeth, while he enjoys the great taste. Bring along a small bag as treats or just a handful along with other Zuke’s natural treats. Available in Clean Apple Crisp, Clean Berry Crisp and Clean Carrot Crisp.
