The Smart Alternative To Rawhide
Chewing is an essential, healthy and enjoyable activity for dogs. Dog chews help keep teeth clean, jaws strong and are mentally stimulating to help prevent boredom and destructive behavior. As a pet parent, you should ensure that you satisfy your dog’s natural chewing instinct in a safe and satisfying way. 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.
Now you can give your dog the popular SmartBones dog chew and support hip and joint health at the same time. Like original SmartBones, this formula contains real chicken and vegetables - and NO rawhide, so it's easier to digest. The light-colored portion of this grain-based chew contains a mix of vegetables and chicken. The colored portion contains real chicken as well as chicken cartilage and green-lipped mussel (natural sources of glucosamine and chondroitin) for support of healthy joints. Who says you can't offer multiple benefits when rewarding your pet? These low-fat chews are completely free of rawhide for greater digestibility, yet they deliver all the chewing benefits of rawhide.
Sticks measure 3.75" long x 1/2" dia. 16 sticks per pack. Always supervise your pet during chewing activity and provide access to fresh, clean water. Intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only.
