When we first moved from Hawaii to the mainland, during winter, our larger dog Kainalu quickly lost his dark tan; he went from completely black skin to almost completely white! Needless to say, whenever the days grow longer and the summer heat starts up, the dogs take any chance they can to soak up the sun like they did back home. Their favorite summer activity is now lying in the yard, soaking up the sun and chewing on a delicious treat. So we were happy this summer to discover a brand of chews that’s safe, healthy, and that our dogs LOVE – SmartBones®!
Here is some product information provided directly by SmartBones®:
- PetMatrix is committed to providing the healthiest, tastiest, safest pet chews available. The Healthy Alternative to Rawhide®, SmartBones® chews are rawhide-free, highly digestible, and 100% delicious.
- SmartBones®’ outer layer is made of wholesome, flavorful vegetables, including sweet potatoes, peas and carrots. This is then combined with an irresistible inner layer of real chicken, for a scrumptious taste dogs can’t resist!
- Available in delectable recipes such as Chicken, Sweet Potato, Peanut Butter, and Dental your furry friend will have a variety of SmartBones to choose from.
- Independent digestibility studies show that SmartBones® chews are highly digestible, and tests demonstrate that 9 out of 10 dogs prefer SmartBones chews over the leading rawhide chews.
SmartBones® is a perfect answer to the traditional rawhide chew, which are associated with a number of risks:
- Rawhide is the inner hide from a cow or other animal that has undergone chemical processing to remove hair and other materials. The rawhide is then ground or used whole, and is formed into various dog chews shapes.
- Many veterinarians are concerned with the potential health risks associated with dogs consuming rawhide. These health risks include: stomach & intestinal blockage and potential ingestion of toxic chemicals used to process rawhide chews.
- In addition, there are serious negative environmental issues generated by the use of chemicals in processing rawhide products.
SmartBones® is our new replacement for traditional rawhide chews. They’re affordable, contain great ingredients, and the dogs go absolutely crazy over them! It’s the first treat we’ve found that they love so much, they’ll do almost anything to get it – including staying still enough for pictures like the ones above. The small treats are perfect for us for training, and the Stuffed Twists are their favorite snack. Head over to SmartBones to get more information and find your dog’s favorite new treat, or visit them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!
