As you may have seen, we adopted our very first family dog a few months ago. We are all adjusting to life with a dog – even the cats are beginning to feel comfortable being in the same room as him. Progress.
Even though I have had several family dogs when I was living in my parents’ home, this is the first time that I am the “mom” to a canine. I’ve been reading books and asking the vet for advice on what to do and what not to do. I was warned by both the rescue and the vet not to let him chew rawhide®. There are several health risks including stomach & intestinal blockage and potential ingestion of toxic chemicals used to process rawhide chews. So I bought elk antlers instead which are great but he doesn’t find them to be very tasty.
PetMatrix sent us is a healthy alternative to rawhide, SmartBones® chews. These treats are rawhide-free, highly digestible, and 100% delicious. Our pup Buddy agrees; just look at him licking his chops!
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.
One lucky reader will win a $25 Visa gift card and a variety of SmartBones® chews!
