Lately I have been sharing some new products that I’ve become acquainted with that make great gifts. There are a couple of products I have been using for some time now that I’d also like to suggest. SmartBones® is one of those products.
SmartBones® are digestible dog chews, which are a healthy alternative to rawhide. There is a fair amount of discussion on rawhide. You see, rawhide is made from the inner hide of a cow or other animal. After the hide goes through chemical processing in order to remove hair and any other materials it’s ground up or used whole in dog chews. Many veterinarians are concerned with potential health risks associated with consuming it. These risks include stomach & intestinal blockage and potential ingestion of toxic chemicals used to process rawhide chews. There is also potential negative environmental issues generated by the use of chemicals in processing rawhide products.
These concerns are not an issue with SmartBones®, which are highly digestible. Their outer layer is made out of wholesome, flavorful vegetables like corn,sweet potatoes, peas and carrots, and the inner layer out of real chicken. Because they are made with real food, these chews are also very tasty. In fact, tests demonstrated that 9 out of 10 dogs preferred SmartBones® chews over the leading rawhide chews!
Speaking of taste, there are numerous styles and flavors of SmartBones® available.
SmartSticks are designed to help maintain healthy teeth and gums. They are available in Chicken, Beef, Sweet Potato and Peanut Butter flavors.
Stuffed Twistz are available in Pork and Peanut Butter flavors. There’s a flavored chew stuffed inside of the Twistz. Dobby has been having these for a while and always seems to enjoy the mixture of flavors and textures.
Smart Chews were new to us. They’re designed to promote healthy teeth. These became my favorite because they are just too cute!
Dobby enjoyed these so much that he devours them a bit faster then I’d originally expected. He gets a workout chewing and then they’re gone!
The newest addition to the line is SmartNaturals®, a naturally good treat that’ll have your dog begging for more! SmartNaturals are available in Beef and Lamb flavors. These treats are slow-cooked. They are a softer, and remind me a bit of jerky.
SmartBones also offers a few other products. Their Classic Bone Chews come in Chicken, Peanut Butter, Sweet Potato, and Beef. They also make several Healthcare Chews, available in Dental Formula, Hip & Joint Healthcare, Skin & Coat Healthcare, and Calming Healthcare.
Give SmartBones®, The Healthy Alternative to Rawhide® a try! They’re sure to become your furry family member’s new go-to-chew!!
