How are the cows and yaks treated?
The cows and yaks in Nepal are raised in sheds, the way it has always been done. No modern equipment or techniques are used in raising and milking the animals. They graze on open grasslands or are brought fresh-cut grass by their families and have never been introduced to hormones, prophylactic antibiotics or chemicals. Cows and yaks are also considered sacred life-givers and are directly responsible for the improved economic situation for their families.
Is this fair trade?
Himalayan Pet Supply is proud that their current beyond Fair Trade policy is contributing to the economic development of the world's second poorest nation in Nepal. They purchase directly from farmers, and help them earn in one year what they would have only been able to make in five years by selling the chews. As of 2016, there are over 9,200 farmers who produce chews for the Himalayan Dog Chew brand.
What if my dog swallows a large piece of Himalayan Dog Chew or sharp pieces?
Most dogs when swallowing pieces of the Himalayan Dog Chew, digest these pieces and expel them, however, if the piece of chew is too large, this could result in vomiting up the piece or causing a potential blockage as the piece will not have enough time in the digestive system to be able to break down fully before it needs to be expelled one way or the other.
Non concerning pieces are generally small being the size of a dime or smaller and the company has yet to hear about any issues with sharp pieces causing issues. This also varies however due to the size of the dog vs. the size of the chew. A Great Dane will be able to pass a much larger piece than a teacup Chihuahua would.
What are the salt, fat and calorie content of your Himalayan Dog Chews?
The sodium content in the Himalayan Dog Chews is .02%. It is used as a flavor enhancer, not for the flavor itself.
Himalayan Pet Supply removes most of the fat and lactose in the process of making the Himalayan Dog Chews. What remains is a very negligible amount that sits at .9% fat content per chew. The lactose that remains is so negligible that it can be considered lactose free under the FDA standards which sits at .2%.
Calorie content for the Himalayan Dog Chews is as follows:
- Small - (for dogs under 15 lbs) - 359 calories per bag
- Medium (for dogs under 35 lbs) - 256 per bag
- Large (for dogs under 55 lbs) - 359 calories per bag
- X-large (for dogs under 70 lbs) - 614 calories per bag
- Big Dog (for dogs over 70 lbs - limited avail.) - 837 calories per bag
- Mixed - (for dogs under 65 lbs) - 1,179 calories per bag
How should I store my Himalayan Dog Chew after opening?
After opening your Himalayan Dog Chew, store it in a cool dry place. If the chew sits in moisture or is resealed in a bag for more than an hour then this can cause the cheese to mold. Himalayan Pet Supply recommends placing it on a counter or in a cupboard and allow it to air dry. Refrigerating is not recommended as this will result in moisture loss and will cause the chew to crack and become brittle.
What do you mean by microwaving the end piece?
The Himalayan Dog Chews are great because there is minimal waste to them. When your dog chews the chew down to a small "end nub" piece where you would normally toss it due to potential choking or swallowing hazards, you can pop it in the microwave for 45-60 seconds (based on an 1100 watt microwave - add 10 second increments if not fully puffed) and it will puff up into a crunchy cheese puff treat that the company calls yakyPUFFS. Just place the piece in the microwave (NOT recommended to put on a paper towel), puff up, let it cool for 2 minutes and your dog will have a new exciting treat to enjoy!
What is the expiration date of your Himalayan Dog Chews and how do I know if it is still good?
Himalayan Dog Chews have a best buy date of five years. Although Himalayan Dog Chews rarely go bad, if you see fibrous light white or greenish blue spots on the chew please discontinue use and contact us by email or phone and please have this information retained: size of chew purchased, Lot number (starts with an L and ends in four numbers)and where this was purchased. This is a sign of mold growth which is a natural side effect of these chews. Please retain the chew in a sealed bag and we will guide you on what to do with it. In turn we will certainly send you a replacement chew.
How do I read the code on the package?
The Himalayan Pet Supply company is currently moving to a best buy date code on Himalayan Dog Chews and other products, however, if you receive a package that has a code which looks like a date (ex. 1236515) this is a Julian date code and is the production or manufacturing date of this product. In the example the 12 = month, the 365 = 365th day of the year, and the 15 = year. In short this chew would have been produced on December 31st 2015. The Himalayan Dog Chews have a best buy date of five years so this chew would be best buy December 31st 2020.
What does the FDA say about bones for dogs?
The Himalayan Dog Chews are not made of bone but cheese. However, the chews are hard and can have properties similar to a bone which is why the company discloses the FDA’s recommendation on bones. Please visit: http://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ConsumerUpdates/ucm208365.htm for more information regarding the FDA’s recommendations on bones for dogs.
