Some pets need a healthy way to work out some energy while mom and dad entertain guests. Check out some of the best, long-lasting, healthy options we have for your pet.

Rawhides have long been given to pets to keep them busy, only now we are learning they have their own drawbacks. To solve this, Earth Animal created No-Hides. They look like rawhides and last just as long, but without the potential dangers.

Chicken Ingredients: Chicken, Chicken Gelatin, Brown Rice Flour, Organic Eggs, Olive Oil, Banana, Bromelain (Pineapple).

Beef Ingredients: Beef, Beef Gelatin, Brown Rice Flour, Organic Eggs, Olive Oil, Banana, Bromelain (Pineapple).

Salmon Ingredients: Salmon, Vegetable Gelatin, Brown Rice Flour, Organic Eggs, Olive Oil, Banana, Bromelain (Pineapple)

These bones are one of the longest lasting and best toothbrushes around. Completely raw, these bones will not break or splinter. Your dog can enjoy getting the marrow out of the middle of these bones for hours.

We recommend giving these bones on a hard, non-porous surface that can be easily cleaned. Because these bones are raw, any surface they touched while still having the meat on them should be cleaned with soap and warm water after use.

You can pick up a 5-pound bag of shank bones (usually containing 5-8 bones) for $9.99 at any Rucker Pet location.
