Indigenous Pet Dental Health Bones for Dogs: Everything You Need to Know

Indigenous Pet Dental Health Bones for Dogs: Everything You Need to Know

A study by the American Veterinary Medical Association found that 80% of dogs show signs of oral disease by age three. 

To prevent this, pet owners should ensure that their dogs are getting the right dental care, including proper dental hygiene at home. 

At Indigenous Pet Products, our passion and purpose is to improve the health, vitality, and happiness of our loyal animal companions. We are committed to the perfect blend of science and nature, and provide dental health bones that make a real difference in a dog’s overall well-being.

In this article, we’re going to explain what Indigenous Pet products are and what they’re made of. By the end of the article, you will have a clear understanding of not only the products and the company, but how Indigenous Pet products compare to other players in the dental dog treat space. 

What are Indigenous Pet Products?

Indigenous Pet Products is a company that offers pet dental bones that are healthy for dogs to eat and good for their teeth. 

Unlike typical bones, which have 30 or more often unrecognizable ingredients, Indigenous Pet bones have 10-15 ingredients, most of which are recognizable. For example, our bones contain things like inulin, potato starch, prebiotics, and kelp meal. Our bones also contain salmon oil, a good source of essential omega-3 fatty acids for a dog’s overall health.

What sets Indigenous Pet Products apart from other pet dental bones is our patented design, which includes kelp meal. Kelp meal is sourced from the North Atlantic around England and, when combined with a dog’s saliva, breaks down plaque on their teeth.

The combination of the patented design and kelp meal has been shown to make a visible difference in a dog’s teeth. Vets have reported a noticeable difference in the teeth of dogs who regularly eat Indigenous Pet bones.

What Ingredients Set Indigenous Pet Dental Health Bones Apart?

At Indigenous Pet Products, we’re dedicated to using healthier ingredients in our bones, which help us stand out among competitors. We add prebiotics and other ingredients commonly found in kid’s foods to our products. 

What’s in Indigenous Pet Dental Health Bones?

      • Inulin, which is a prebiotic that helps a dog’s digestion and prevents bloating.

      • Kelp meal, which has been proven to remove plaque from a dog’s teeth. Indigenous Pet bones are grain-free and gluten-free, which makes them an excellent option for dogs with dietary restrictions.

      • Salmon oil, which is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for a dog’s overall health.

      • No preservatives. There are limited additives or preservatives in our dental health bones, as these are not good for dogs.

    We believe that if a pet owner does not know what the ingredients on the label are, there’s a good chance it is not the healthiest option for their dog.

    Research sponsored by Penford Pet Products confirms that Indigenous Pets unique combination of clean, simple ingredients significantly reduces plaque buildup, gingivitis, and halitosis in over just a 32 day period.  In fact, results show a:

        • 21% reduction in plaque

        • 58% reduction in calculus

        • 47% reduction in halitosis

      How Much Do Indigenous Pet Products Cost?

      Indigenous Pet Products bones retail for $17.99 per bag. This price is largely driven by the healthier ingredients we use, with 90% of the cost being in the ingredients. We source everything in the United States when possible, with the exception of kelp meal and sunflower leptin.

      The minimum order amount for distributors is $1,000.

      How Do Indigenous Pet Products Compare to Competitors?

      Competitors such as Greenies are mass-produced products that are not as healthy for your dog as Indigenous Pets products, though they are carried by mass retailers and boutique pet stores alike. 

      Indigenous Pet Products are in the top 10 Nielsen-rated pet dental health bones. Our products are made in small batches rather than mass produced, and contain ingredients primarily made and manufactured right here in the United States. 

      What is Our Fulfillment Rate?

      The fulfillment rate for Indigenous Pet Products is 98%, with the only exception being when products get damaged during shipping. 

      We have plenty of inventory and no problem filling orders. Indigenous Pet Products ships and distributes nationwide in the United States and also ships to Canada. Customers can enter their zip code on the website to see the stores where they can buy from.

      Which Products are Our Top Sellers?

      Our top-selling items are the Smoked Bacon and Fresh Breath bones, followed by the Chicken bones. 

      We offer a total of nine different pet dental bone products, with our Lamb bones containing the fewest ingredients. 

      Our newest additions to the lineup are the Duck and Apple bones. 

      While our large bones are often our best sellers, we recently introduced mini bones, which are one-quarter the size and ideal for dogs weighing between 3-10 pounds. These smaller bones are designed for daily use, just like their larger counterparts. Our sales rankings reflect the amount of time each product has been available at retail stores.

      Our Approach to Mass Retail 

      We are currently not partnering with mass retailers, and focusing instead on smaller, boutique pet store partnerships, which often align with our dedication to pet health and nutrition. 

      What Are Customers Saying About Indigenous Pet Products?

      Indigenous Pet Products dental health bones were off the shelf for four months in 2021, and customers were eager to buy them as soon as they were back on shelves, which is a testament to the quality and effectiveness of the product, as well as the brand loyalty of our customers. 

      Below is a collection of reviews from customers to give you a better understanding of the impact Indigenous Pet Products have on pets and their owners. 

      “The package came before the estimated date. These dental bones eliminate bad breath and the mini size is perfect for my mini-dachshunds. No more Greenies! Glad I found you!”

      – Karen A.

      “We started using these 4 years ago. One dog had considerable plaque buildup which then was gone in a few weeks. These were not available during much of the pandemic, and now are more expensive than before. We had to try other “dental chews,” but none worked as well. Do Not Doubt – These get rid of plaque and keep it away. Our two 25 pound dogs each get 1/2 daily after their lunch. They like them so much that they sometimes stop eating their lunch and stand by the pantry where these are stored.”

      – Cammer

      “Only teeth cleaning bones my babies will eat. Old English Sheep dog, Pomeranian and St. Bernard all Love these!! Get so excited to see these treats. Love that I can break down so my Pomeranian can enjoy too.”

      –Opie L.
