Better Bones - Dried Bone For Homemade Diets

Better Bones helps dog owners build their own raw and cooked meals with a safe source of bone. Our bones come from fully inspected New Zealand grass-fed cattle and are carefully dried and powdered.


It’s important that your dog gets the right amount of calcium and phosphorus. Joint and skeletal problems can begin to develop if these minerals are out of balance. Bone is the correct ratio of calcium and phosphorus, which makes it really easy to balance in a variety of diets.

Calcium sources like coral, seaweed and eggshell are good, but they have little to no phosphorus content. This creates a real challenge when trying to balance your dog's minerals. 

Better Bones is rich in amino acids and growth factors which are often lacking in other sources of calcium. It also contains natural vitamin D which regulates the calcium and phosphorus balance.

Product Info

Many dogs struggle to eat whole bones. Better Bones is a safer alternative that’s suitable for senior dogs, puppies and cooked diets. There’s no need to worry about choking or splintering and no need to add unnatural calcium to cooked foods. It’s bones made better! 

Made from 100% natural beef bones from New Zealand cattle, Better Bones comes out on top because it’s dried without acids, chemicals and bleaches unlike commonly high-heat treated bone meals.

This gentle drying method enables the naturally occurring proteins, minerals and growth factors found in bone, to stay intact … making Better Bones a highly bioavailable source of calcium.
