Definitely not. There are some very low-quality yak chews present in the market that could be harmful to your dog’s health. We always tell our buyers to buy from us and check our quality vs our competitors.
Moreover, there are EU-made chews that are commercially mass-produced in EU milk factories These are not yak chews since they are made in the EU (there are no yaks in Europe) and also do not support the Himalayan farmers.
Everest Dog Chew contains a mixture of yak and cow milk. Once the mixture is boiled, the prevalent fat is separated by adding lime juice. The excess fat is then discarded. After a few hours of boiling the milk, it starts to thicken and forms a white cheese. Stirring the boiling milk gently and continuously is key to making this cheese. The cheese is poured into a clean cloth to drain out the excess water. Once the block of cheese is ready, it is cut into small pieces and dried. When the product is ready, it can be stored for a number of years. No preservative or artificial flavors are added to the whole process of making the product.
Our chews are made with a mixture of yak and cow milk and lime juice. However, since it is hard to source yaks’ milk in mass, they contain mostly Himalayan cow milk.
The shelf life of the chew is usually three years for any unopened Everest Dog Chew, in its original packaging, stored at room temperature. If you would like to save any open unfinished pieces for later consumption, please pat dry and store them away from moisture. After prolonged contact with moisture, if you notice any changes in the color such as patches of grey or green, it might be a result of mold. Please discard the treat immediately and start a fresh pack.
Since the chew is a form of hard cheese, please consider your doggos’ oral health before making a purchase. However, the treats do get softer once the hard outer shell has been chewed on for a little while.
We have less fat & are less smoked compared to other brands which make the chews more easily digestible. Let’s not forget the chew gets into the doggos stomach so we don’t want it to be too hard and rough 🙂
That being said, we definitely think we lie on the longer-lasting spectrum (EU-made chews are softer in comparison and are machine-made) as well as being healthy!
