Yak Chew FAQ

Is milk good for dogs?

It is difficult for dogs to digest milk in its raw form, but once milk is processed into cheese it is digestible. Since the curdled cheese is separated from the milk, most of the fat and lactose is removed from the cheese, lactose is the primary reason for indigestion. Only a small percentage of dogs that consume Yak Chews go through loose stool or gas and that always resolves.

Is cheese fattening?

Cheese is a nutrient packed food that contains protein, calcium, vitamin B12 and selenium. Most cheeses tend to be high in calories, but if consumed in moderation they are not fattening. Yak Chews is great for protecting teeth from cavities. In comparison to milk, cheese is pretty low in lactose so it's rarely a cause for an upset stomach. However, if your dog faces any health issues due to cheese, discontinue its consumption and consult your vet.

Will it go bad?

Yak Chews are best within two years, as long as they are kept away from moisture and kept at room temperature. However, if you see signs of mould growth, and patches of fibrous white or bluish green spots on the chew, then we recommend to not feed your dog. If it happens when it's still in original package, please contact us through email for further information or a replacement.
