Homecookers and DIY raw feeders get your pet’s calcium and minerals the safe and convenient way.

Just 100% air-dried bones from pastured Australian cattle ... just as nature intended!

It’s important that your dog gets the right amount of calcium and phosphorus. Joint and skeletal problems can begin to develop if these minerals are out of balance. Bone is the correct ratio of calcium and phosphorus, which makes it really easy to balance in a variety of diets.

Calcium sources like coral, seaweed and egg shell are good, but they have little to no phosphorus content. This creates a real challenge when trying to balance your dog's minerals. 

Better Bones is rich in amino acids and growth factors which are often lacking in other sources of calcium. It also contains natural vitamin D which regulates the calcium and phosphorus balance. 

Many dogs struggle to eat whole bones. Better Bones is a safer alternative that’s suitable for senior dogs, puppies and cooked diets. There’s no need to worry about choking or splintering and no need to add unnatural calcium to cooked foods. It’s bones made better! 

Made from 100% natural beef bones from Australian cattle, Better Bones comes out on top because it’s air dried without acids, chemicals and bleaches unlike commonly high-heat treated bone meals.

This gentle drying method enables the naturally occurring proteins, minerals and growth factors found in bone, to stay in tact … making Better Bones a highly bioavailable source of calcium.
