Happy Human and Pup!

"I absolutely love this product and so does my dog! My Doberman tends to eat her meaty bones so fast so when I’m not there to supervise I don’t feel comfortable letting anyone else feeding her bones. This supplement has been an amazing alternative for those occasions. Also it has made meals way easier to prepare when travelling. I can just add better bones to her meals and rest assured she’s getting proper amounts of calcium and minerals essential for healthy puppy growth!"

Jessy C.

Real Powdered Bones

Dogs need the right amount of calcium, phosphorus and other minerals. Joint and skeletal problems can begin to develop if minerals are out of balance. But raw bones can splinter or might not be digested by your dog, leaving his meals unbalanced. And cooked meals use unnatural sources of calcium like eggshells that aren't properly balanced.

Better Bones makes raw or cooked diets naturally easy. It's carefully dried bone with the natural ratio of calcium and phosphorus and it's rich in amino acids and growth factors, which are lacking in other sources of calcium.

  • Supports bone and joint health: Contains amino acids and growth factors which are often lacking in other sources of calcium.
  • Easy to use: Easy directions for your own food or use our recipes.
  • Trusted by dog owners: Backed by hundreds of positive reviews, Better Bones is a trusted choice among pet owners who are looking for a natural way to improve their dog's health and wellbeing.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it last?

One jar of Better Bones makes 30 pounds of food for an adult dog. 

Where do you get your bones from?

Better Bones is simply dried bone from New Zealand pastured beef. All cattle are tested free of BSE. 

What’s the difference between Better Bones and bone meal?

Most bone meal is rendered, which means it goes through a high heat process and can be sourced from euthanized or sick animals or low quality sources. Better Bones is selected from healthy, New Zealand cattle and is human grade. Our bones are gently dried in low temperatures to maintain the healthy contents of the real bone like collagen, minerals and essential growth factors.

Can’t I just give my dog eggshells for calcium?

While both Better Bones and eggshells are a great source of calcium, eggshells don't contain other minerals, especially phosphorus. Because Better Bones is just dried bones, it contains the ideal calcium to phosphorus ratio of 2:1, just like real bones. Better Bones is also rich in magnesium, zinc and vitamin D, as well as bone growth factors and collagen. Eggshells will not meet AAFCO’s nutritional requirements for any diet over 10% fat, or for puppies and pregnant dogs, while Better Bones can be fed with higher fat diets and is safe for all life stages. Better Bones is bones made better. 

How is Better Bones different from seaweed or coral calcium?

Like eggshells, seaweed and coral calcium contain too little phosphorus. If you feed your dog more than 10% fat, there will be too little phosphorus in seaweed and coral calcium to meet AAFCO minimum nutritional requirements. And unlike Better Bones, seaweed and coral calcium can't balance foods for puppies and pregnant/nursing dogs because it contains too little phosphorus. 

Because Better Bones is natural powdered bone, it contains the perfect 2:1 ratio of calcium to phosphorus, along with magnesium, zinc, vitamin D, bone growth factors, and collagen. This makes Better Bones safe for all life stages and all foods. 

Is Better Bones tested for safety?

Every batch of Better Bones is tested to be low in lead and heavy metals. We know that glyphosate can be stored in the bones of animals, which is why we source pastured cattle from New Zealand. We test every batch for glyphosate and ensure the glyphosate content is below the EWG's (Environmental Working Group) Health Benchmark of 160 ppb. This is significantly lower than the EPA (Environmental Working Group) limit of 5,000 ppb. Glyphosate has been linked to serious health and gut issues so we make sure our bones are tested to be low in all pesticide residue. We're pleased to offer a fully tested and clean source of bone for dogs. 

Can I give Better Bones to my puppy?

Better Bones is suitable for all life stages.

It contains all the natural minerals, growth factors and vitamin D found in real bone. These are all the essentials to look for in a good bone product for your dog.

Can Better Bones help with joints?

Better Bones helps to maintain proper joint nutrition. It also helps build and maintain healthy bones and teeth.

If my dog eats kibble can I give Better Bones?

Kibble is already balanced for calcium and phosphorus. It is not recommended to give Better Bones unless advised by your vet.

Should I still give real bones when my dog is on Better Bones?

We recommend you do not mix Better Bones with real bone in the same meal. This will make it easier to balance the minerals in your dog’s meals.

Who We Are

In Memory of Simon & Aaron

The story of Four Leaf Rover started as a tragedy. Our founder Dana Scott lost two dogs from toxic sprays they were exposed to in the fields surrounding her home.

As Dana researched remedies, she found nearly all contained hidden or harmful ingredients. Four Leaf Rover began as a promise to Dana's lost dogs that all dogs deserve super premium products with natural ingredients that are thoroughly tested to be low in harmful pesticides and heavy metals. With a mission of quality, transparency and sustainability, Four Leaf Rover is making the world a better place for dogs and the people who love them.
