Himalayan Chews were born from an ancient recipe for a hard cheese snack chewed by the people of the Himalayas. In the mountains surrounding Mt. Everest at more than 15,000 feet, it is made using traditional methods with yak and/or cow milk, and all natural products with no preservatives or binding agents. They're also gluten-free! Depending on the size and eating habits of the dog, this can be a very long-lasting dog chew. Dogs must work the end of the treat for hours, softening it with their mouths before small parts of it can be slowly chewed off. When you give this treat to your dog, you know that you are providing them with high-quality eating entertainment.
Generally speaking this is our recommendations for sizing:
Small (blue bag) is recommended for dogs under 15 lbs.
Medium (green bag) is recommended for dogs under 35 lbs.
Large (red bag) is recommended for dogs under 55 lbs.
XL (gray bag) is recommended for dogs under 70 lbs.
XXL (red vertical bag) is recommended for dogs over 70 lbs.
Going up in size is never an issue and is completely appropriate; however, we do not recommend giving your dog a smaller size than the recommended weight classification as this can cause potential choking or blockage issues. If your dog has a larger mouth and jaw (example, Pit Bull) or is a voracious chewer then it is recommended to size up.
If it appears as though your dog is going to swallow the entire product or a large piece at any time, then it should be taken away and can be reintroduced at a later time if appropriate. In fact we would recommend that all dogs be supervised at all times after being given any toy or treat not just our chews.
With all this being said, we do understand that there will always be some dogs that will be unable to tolerate our chews. In some cases stomachs may be very sensitive to lactose even though there is a negligible amount remaining, just as humans are. Ultimately, owners are very aware of their own dogs’ limitations with different types of food and we recommend discontinuing use if you feel there is an intolerance or issue and recommend trying one of our other many treats and chews.
Other potential hazards that could arise may include but are not limited to: choking, indigestion, blockage and breakage of teeth. Please use your best judgment when deciding if our product is right for your dog and always supervise your dog during consumption and remove immediately if any concerning factors arise.

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. We recommend 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.
