Ceylon Cinnamon Wood Chew
Every dog has a natural need to chew. This often starts when they are puppies and progresses to chewing our table legs and shoes! Chewing gives natural dental care and occupies the energetic dog. The Cinnamuncher’s Ceylon Cinnamon Wood Chews are a sustainable dog chew made using real, natural wood to satisfy their chewing instincts.
Cinnamomum Verum or ‘True’ Cinnamon is a tree native to Sri Lanka, the island nation that was once known as Ceylon. The bark of the tree is used to make true Cinnamon also known as Cinnamomum Zeylanicum. Carefully selected and repurposed wood is then simply graded, dried, and sanded, making these a healthy, safe and satisfying chew for dogs of all sizes. As a natural wood product, it will chew down but does not produce sharp splinters.
It’s important for you to know:
- Your dog should be supervised whilst using their Ceylon Cinnamon Wood Chews.
- Make sure the chew is big enough for your dog; take it away if it becomes a choking hazard.
- This is a natural wood product and it will break down when chewed over time. But chewed off pieces are harmless.
- Ceylon Cinnamon Wood Chews are great as a complementary treat. They are not a food substitute.
- The small size is not recommended for puppies.
Note that there are two types of Cinnamon:
- Ceylon Cinnamon Tree – The bark of the Ceylon Cinnamon tree is what is used to make these Ceylon Cinnamon Wood Chews. It is the safe kind, as it has low levels of Courmarin, a natural organic chemical compound.
- The Chinese Cinnamon Tree – The bark of the Chinese Cinnamon tree is used to make Cassia Cinnamon. The higher levels of Courmarin pose can potentially be harmful to the health of your dog, so you should avoid this type of Cinnamon for your dog.
It is important that you do not allow your dog to chew for long periods of time on these Ceylon Cinnamon Wood Chews. Too much Cinnamon can be harmful, but the small amount consumed in normal chewing is fine. We would recommend a maximum chew time in any one day of no more than an hour – less for smaller dogs. If in doubt, always consult with your vet.
