Low temperature dehydrated beef hocks from the highest welfare, pasture raised beef in Australia. From start to finish these animals received the highest welfare lifestyle which includes on-farm processing (instead of the stress & fear associated with abattoirs)
In keeping with ‘honouring the whole animal’ we’ve partnered with a progressive beef producer to use the organs, bones and other parts as dog treats and chews , this ensures that nothing is wasted, and everything is celebrated.

TLDR: These treats are fattier/greasier than the what you’re probably used to… but that’s a good thing.
These treatos will present as slightly greasier than a pet shop treat because they contain higher levels of grass fed ‘good’ fats. This grass fed & grass finished fat is a fantastic natural preservative and contains optimum levels of Omega 3s. It also contains CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) which is considered one of the best ‘good fats’ for dogs. You can read all about the geeky world of essential fatty acids for dogs here.
We suggest using them as a recreational bone rather than feeding as a meal. I’ve been offering one to our med/large dog for a few hours each day for the last 4 days and he’s still gnawing at the sinew and tendons.
These are a super interesting shape for dogs to enjoy the chewing challenge (and enrichment) of a complex joint.
Offering weight bearing bones for full consumption is a matter of choice. If your dog is a sensible chewer – then allow full consumption. Otherwise, remove from your dog when all sinew, soft tissue and accessible marrow has been removed.
