Z-Bones® Minty Fresh triple-action dental chew

A company is born…

During a hike in the Colorado Mountains with his typically energetic dog companion, Zuke, Patrick Meiering (founder of Zuke’s) noticed that his four-legged friend had become exhausted. Patrick broke off a piece of his energy bar, tossed it to him, and Zuke perked right up. That was when Patrick realized that pets need healthy, all-natural treats just as much as people do.

My dogs love these treats and every morning sit patiently waiting until I hand them out. It is nice to have  a healthy snack around that I know is good for the dogs and they look forward to.   The packaging is perfect, reclosable and storable.
