Discover the wholesome goodness of our Coconut Yak Milk Bars for dogs. Made from 100% natural yak milk infused with coconut flakes, our coconut yak bars are a delicious and nutritious treat that supports your dog's health and well-being.

 

Choosing Yak Bars means providing your dog with a nutritious, long-lasting, and enjoyable treat that supports their health and well-being. Whether you're looking to improve your dog's dental health, support their nutritional needs, or simply keep them entertained, Yak Bars are an excellent choice.

 

Key Benefits of our Yak Bars for Dogs:

  • High-Quality Protein: Yak milk is a rich source of high-quality protein, essential for muscle development, tissue repair, and maintaining overall vitality in dogs. This protein boost supports your dog's active lifestyle and helps keep them strong and healthy.
  • Calcium-Rich: Packed with calcium, Yak Bars promote strong bones and teeth. Regular consumption can help maintain your dog's skeletal health, supporting growth in puppies and preventing issues related to calcium deficiency in older dogs.
  • Low in Fat: Despite their rich, creamy taste, Yak Bars are low in fat, making them an ideal treat for dogs on a balanced diet or those needing to manage their weight. They provide a nutritious snack without adding unnecessary calories.
  • Supports Dental Health: The hard texture of Yak Bars helps to scrape away plaque and tartar as your dog chews, promoting better dental hygiene and fresher breath. Regular chewing also strengthens jaw muscles and supports healthy gums.
  • Long-Lasting Chew: Yak Bars are durable and long-lasting, providing extended enjoyment for your dog. This keeps your dog entertained, reducing boredom and promoting mental stimulation.
  • Lactose-Free: The traditional production process removes most of the lactose, making Yak Bars easier to digest for dogs that might be sensitive to dairy products. This ensures that dogs with mild lactose intolerance can still enjoy this treat without digestive issues.
  • Zero Waste: When the end piece gets too small for your dog, simply pop it in the microwave for approximately 45 seconds and watch it turn into a large cheesy puff with a honeycomb texture (think of a popular honeycomb chocolate bar we are all familiar with, minus the chocolate!) that is crunchier and easy for your dog to digest. Allow to cool completely before giving back to your pup!

 

Infusing with Coconut Flakes also provides additional benefits:

  • Healthy Fats: Coconut contains medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), a type of healthy fat that is easily digestible and quickly metabolised for energy. MCTs can provide a readily available energy source for dogs, supporting their overall vitality and endurance.
  • Weight Management: Despite being rich in fats, coconut can actually support weight management in dogs when included as part of a balanced diet. The MCTs in coconut are metabolized differently than other fats, potentially increasing energy expenditure and promoting fat loss.
  • Improved Skin and Coat Health: The fatty acids in coconut, such as lauric acid, can contribute to healthy skin and a shiny coat for dogs. Regular consumption of coconut may help alleviate dry skin, itching, and irritation, promoting a lustrous and healthy appearance.
  • Digestive Support: Coconut contains dietary fibre, which can aid in digestion and promote regular bowel movements in dogs. Fibre is beneficial for maintaining gastrointestinal health and may help prevent constipation or diarrhea.
  • Antimicrobial Properties: Coconut has natural antimicrobial properties due to compounds like lauric acid, caprylic acid, and capric acid. These substances may help combat harmful bacteria, viruses, and fungi in the digestive tract, supporting a healthy gut microbiome.
  • Joint Health: Coconut contains anti-inflammatory compounds that may help reduce inflammation and alleviate symptoms of arthritis or joint pain in dogs. Regular consumption of coconut may contribute to improved mobility and comfort, especially in senior dogs or those with joint issues.
  • Immune System Support: The lauric acid in coconut has been shown to have immune-boosting properties, helping dogs ward off infections and illnesses. A strong immune system is essential for overall health and resilience against pathogens.
  • Palatability and Texture: Coconut adds a unique flavour and texture to yak bars, enhancing their palatability and appeal to dogs. Many dogs enjoy the taste and texture of coconut, making it a popular ingredient in treats.

 

Why Choose Our Coconut Yak Bars for Dogs:

Many Yak Bars available today are made from a mixture of Yak's Milk and Cow's Milk. Our Coconut Yak Bars are made from 100% Yak Milk and Coconut Flakes. Not only does this result in a harder chew, it also provides a variety of additional health and nutrition benefits.

 

Choosing a yak bar made with 100% yak milk for your dog over one made with a mix of yak and cow milk can offer several benefits related to health, digestibility, and nutritional content. Here are some key reasons:

 

Allergy and Sensitivity Considerations:

  • Lower Allergy Risk: Dogs can have allergies or sensitivities to cow milk proteins. Yak milk is less commonly associated with allergies, making 100% yak milk bars potentially safer for dogs with known or suspected sensitivities.

 

Digestibility:

  • Better Digestibility: Yak milk has been found to be more digestible for some dogs compared to cow milk. This can be attributed to the different protein structures and fat content in yak milk.

 

Nutritional Profile:

  • Higher Nutritional Value: Yak milk is rich in healthy fats, proteins, vitamins (such as Vitamin A and Vitamin E), and minerals (like calcium and magnesium). These nutrients are essential for maintaining a dog’s overall health, strong bones, and shiny coat.
  • Probiotics and Enzymes: Yak milk contains natural probiotics and enzymes that can aid in digestion and promote a healthy gut flora.

 

Purity and Quality:

  • Single-Source Purity: A 100% yak milk product ensures that there are no added ingredients that might compromise the quality or integrity of the treat. It guarantees the product is as natural and pure as possible, which is particularly important when you want to prioritise high-quality, natural ingredients.

 

Flavour and Appeal:

  • Unique Flavour: Dogs often enjoy the unique flavour of yak milk, which can be more appealing compared to the more common taste of cow milk products. This can make yak milk bars a more enticing treat for picky eaters.

 

Sustainability and Ethical Considerations:

  • Sustainable Production: Yak milk production is often associated with sustainable and traditional farming practices. Supporting products made from 100% yak milk can help promote and preserve these environmentally friendly practices.

 

Cultural and Regional Benefits:

  • Support for Local Communities: Our yak milk products are sourced from Himalayan regions where yak herding is a traditional livelihood. Choosing 100% yak milk products can support these communities economically and culturally.

 

In summary, opting for our premium yak bar made with 100% yak milk can provide a more hypoallergenic, nutritious, and digestible treat for your dog, while also supporting sustainable and ethical production practices.

 

What Size Yak Bar Should I Choose?

Small (30-40g) - small puppies and toy breeds.

Medium (50-80g) - think Dachshunds and Jack Russells.

Large (90-120g) - around Beagle and Cocker Spaniel size.

Extra Large (140-190g) - your Labradors and German Shepherds.

King (195-220g) - from Rottweilers to Great Danes etc.

 

*if you are unsure on size, always size up to the bigger option to reduce the risk of choking.
