Good Things for Your Dog to Chew

Dried Sweet Potatoes

Dried Sweet Potatoes

If you’re looking for something different for your dog, I found Snook’s Sweet Potato Dog Chips treats thanks to Sirius Cooks a few months ago during an interview. Tashi loves them, and they are a very popular item at the store. I usually serve them to friends’ dogs when they come for a visit to much appaws:)

The dried organic sweet potatoes are safe to chew–taste tested by humans–help clean teeth, are high in fiber and important vitamins and minerals. Low in calories, high in antioxidents,  sweet potatoes are by their nature hypoallergenic—ha! No additives, made in the US.

Bison Cartilage Anyone? Best Bully Sticks

Bison Cartilage contains natural chondroitin, and is used in supplements to help with hip and joint problems.  This organic and USDA approved version of a bully stick is, to my thinking, a lot safer for your precious pup than most bully sticks you’ll find in stores.  Produced in the US, they are from South American free-range bison, free of growth hormones. 

Because the resulting  product is produced here, there are no worries about improper handling.  Most bully sticks  in shops come from India where standards are much different than in the US.

Also, most manufacturers irradiate this product to reduce the likelihood of infectious disease, and laws were written so manufacturers were not required to inform consumers of this process. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want my food irradiated and I don’t want my dog to be exposed to that either.  And to cap things off, there’s the common practices of washing these things in bleach to take away the smell…no, thank you!  Find the organic bison cartilage at bestbullysticks.
