Soup Bones are available in delicious flavors like recipes you'd expect from Rachael's kitchen: hearty Beef & Barley; savory Chicken & Veggies; and wholesome Turkey & Rice.

    Also, all of the other long-lasting treat options on the market were full of junky ingredients and by-products. Like all Nutrish® super-premium foods and treats, Soup Bones are made with simple, wholesome ingredients like real chicken and garden vegetables, and never any meat by-products.
