Beloved pets deserve a real holiday treat. A Medford company makes dog bones with no hormones, preservatives or salt — and certainly no nonfood ingredients from dubious sources abroad.
Crater Lake Natural recently expanded the Boney's Bonez line of smoked bones and tendons that start with food-grade bones inspected by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. A variety of sizes and textures are suited to dogs of all types and their chewing habits. Tendons and pig ears are best for dogs that smash bones into sharp shards.
Boney's Bonez products are available at local Grange Co-op stores, Shop'N Kart and Nature's Pet in Ashland, Happy Tails Dog Wash and White's Country Farm in Medford and at local farmers markets. See www. boneysbonez.com, soon to feature an online storefront.
