Plutos are 100% cheese. We can classify the type as a "Firm sound rind" type pf cheese. That means that the external surface of the cheese is firm and thick consistent with the size of the cheese; is not easily dented or damaged; is dry, smooth and closely knit to protect the interior quality from external defects; and is externally free from checks, cracks, breaks or soft spots.The shiny effect is basically protection. It is a very thin layer of the outside skin that gets shiny with the type of drying we use - air effect. With age, sometimes lose it. 

How is the product hypoallergenic? Hypoallergenic is the characteristic of provoking fewer allergic reactions in allergy sufferers. We choose our products very carefully and from the best suppliers. Our partners always ensure us that their products are safe. Before giving your dog a chew please verify if the dog is allergic to any of our ingredients. Please note that there are some dogs that may be allergic to milk protein and/or chicken. 

All-natural ingredients are sourced from European companies with a proven record of good manufacturing practices. All products are 100% EUROPEAN. 

Depending on the markets and clients we apply either certified pork fat or extra virgin oil.

Probably the ones that are extremely hard and not good for dogs’ teeth, bones, antlers. They are dangerous because they don`t have good digestibility.
