Meaty Bone Dog Treats

 No recalls.

The Meaty Bone brand line includes 2 types of dog biscuits/treats. Although the brand is owned by Big Heart Pet Brands (which in 2015 was acquired by J.M. Smucker Company), the website still shows its old affiliation with Del Monte.


A 1980 advertisement introducing the product declared it “The first dog biscuit made with real meat.” The ad further described Meaty Bone this way: “Outside, a delicious coating made with real meat. Inside, a crunchy hard biscuit to help keep teeth clean and strong.” (Perhaps they are made of real meat, but Meaty Bone ingredients include animal fat, meat by-products and animal plasma.)

A 2005 news release claimed that Meaty Bone dog biscuits were “extremely effective at reducing tartar buildup” — 40% more so than Milk-Bone. However, times have changed, and Meaty Bone hasn’t kept pace. Now its competitor has introduced Milk-Bone Brushing Chews that purport to be just as effective as reducing tartar and bad breath as brushing a dog’s teeth twice a week.
