Do you have a pup with an insatiable need for constant occupation? Does your pup try to nibble everything in sight? Having a good chew handy is always your best bet.

For your four-legged friend, chewing is important in so many ways. It not only keeps them busy, but it is imperative for their dental health, thus, their overall health. And we know you’d prefer that they aren’t chewing up your favorite pair of shoes instead. 

Bully sticks are more than just a healthy treat/chew for dogs, but also offer a variety of health benefits. Bully sticks are highly digestible, meaning they won’t upset your dog’s stomach after eating it. They also don’t splinter, so you don’t have to worry about any injuries or choking. Bully sticks are made from only one ingredient – 100% dried beef muscle, which means there aren’t any added chemicals that can make your dog sick such as a rawhide could. Beef offers a complete source of amino acids, which when digested, supports your dog’s muscles, skin, brain, and coat. Usually dogs with allergies and sensitivities do very well with bully sticks, as they don’t have any added ingredients at all. 

Antlers are also a great chew option for dogs because they’re completely natural as well. Coming straight from a deer or elk and not having to be processed like many other chews, the antlers contain many beneficial and natural nutrients, with absolutely nothing added. These chews are odor free, and are way less likely to splinter than a processed chew. Because they’re completely natural, they tend to last a lot longer than the average processed bone as well. 

Himalayan dog chews are made of dehydrated cheese and (a very tiny amount) of salt. Milk in its raw form is hard for a dog to digest, but once made into cheese, is very easy on a dog’s stomach, is full of protein, and has a taste that dog’s love! 

Pig ears may sound gross, but dogs love them. Pig ears offer a huge amount of protein (the protein percentage being 69% to be exact!) as well as omega-3 and 6 acids that benefit a dog’s cholesterol, therefore, their heart health; promote a healthy coat; and aid in joint aches and pains. 

As always, don’t hesitate to reach out to your local pet store if you have questions on this or any pet related topic.
