Frequently Asked Questions

Are freeze dried dog treats and raw dog treats the same thing?

Bell and Bone freeze dried dog treats are considered raw dog treats as there is no cooking involved in the process. The process of freeze dried dog food is to bring the raw dog food to a frozen state and remove the moisture content which will remove the bacteria. This is different to dehydrated dog treats as dehydrated dog food is technically cooked and therefore many of the nutrients are lost in the process, potentially up to 65%. Freeze dried dog treats or raw dogs treats are a far better option than dehydrated dog treats in our opinion.

Why are superfood dog treats better than other dog biscuits?

Bell and Bone superfood dog treats are healthier than other dog biscuits because instead of using wheat, corn or other fillers to bind them, they are grain free, filler free and preservative free dog treats. They are 100% natural, made in Australia and full of health benefits. Dog biscuits generally contain salt or sugar as well whereas Bell and Bone contains no salt or sugar in any dog treat product. Bell and Bone aims to provide healthier alternatives to normal dog food products you can find on the shelves.
