Bonies are a 100% natural chewable treat for dogs. They can serve as both an alternative to rawhide and/or alternative to real bones. Like rawhide, they help to clean your dog’s teeth and freshen their breath. But unlike rawhide, Bonies are completely digestible and contain no artificial ingredients and no animal by-products. For those concerned about allergies, they also contain no wheat, corn, or soy.
The wieners absolute love Bonies and would probably eat them all day if allowed. Much to their dismay, they generally only get one chew (of any type) per day, and usually not even every day. I have to manage their weight very carefully, which is difficult when they’re giving the “sad eyes”. I know you know what I mean ;). For size reference, I give them the small size mentioned below.
★★★★★ Bonies get five stars from Dachshund Rescue List. The wieners give me dirty looks for this rating, because they think eight stars is more appropriate. Sorry guys, five is the limit.
Bonies come in three different sizes and three different varieties. They can be purchased as singles (which are great for getting one for your dog to sample before committing to a bag), multi-packs (the most common option), and bulk boxes (great for individuals or rescues with many dogs to care for).
- Mini (0.7 oz): For dogs 5-15 lbs
- Small (0.81 oz): For dogs 5-25 lbs
- Regular (2.23 oz): For dogs 25 lbs or more
- Original Formula – with parsley and peppermint oil for fresh breath
- Joint Formula – with added glucosamine, as well as omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids to support healthy joints
- Calming Formula – with added chamomile and lavender for calming

Bonies™ is a trademarked product of the BONIES brand
**Side note: I have found that Bonies and Terrabone are extremely similar. Their appearance and ingredient listings are strikingly similar, as well as having three similar varieties/formulas. From most recent comparisons, Bonies™ are generally the least expensive of the two. It it unknown at this time if they are affiliated in any way. If I can find out, I will update this statement.
