Do you think of your dog as one of your own kids? I know we do! We have an eight-year old dachshund mix named Lily. She is a sweet and adorable part of our family. We want the best for her.
I will not feed Lily any rawhides. They are messy but also very dangerous. Did you know? 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 using chemicals to process rawhide products.
We give Lily treats at least twice a day. When I am out shopping, there are so many choices. It is hard to find the right choice to keep Lily safe and healthy. That is why I am so happy to try out SmartBones®.
We received Beef SmartSticks, Stuffed Twistz, SmartChews and SmartNaturals dog treats. Lily was so happy to receive the treats. She was trying to get in the bag before we had a chance to open it. I felt confident in giving Lily the treats because PetMatrix is committed to providing the healthiest, tastiest pet chews available. The Healthy Alternative to Rawhide®, SmartBones® chews are rawhide-free, highly digestible, and 100% delicious. 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® Chews 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 yummy taste dogs can’t resist! Available in scrumptious recipes such as Chicken, Sweet Potato, Peanut Butter, Beef and Dental, your furry friend will have plenty of options, including the new SmartChews® and SmartNaturals® 100% natural meat treats. Lily was sure happy to chew away. I was happy that I could give her something healthy and safe.
Look at the adorableness of the animal shapes! SmartBones SmartChews® come in a variety of animal shapes and use a grain-free formula for an easy to digest chew. These fun chews are vitamin and mineral enriched with no artificial coloring. My kids wanted to keep feeding Lily the “animal shaped ones.”
In addition to chews, PetMatrix is now offering SmartNaturals®, a 100% natural meat treat. SmartNaturals® are available in two delectable varieties, made with grass fed beef and sweet potatoes or grass fed lamb and rosemary. I liked giving Lily these when I wanted to give her a small treat before dinner time.
Lily is super happy and excited about her new SmartBones® treats! She comes running anytime I get close to the treat area. I am pleased that I can provide treats that are 100% delicious, healthy and safe for her.
