Our dogs are family, and just as important as our human children. They’re our furry kids. Just like we always make sure that our children are eating healthy foods, and snacks. We also make sure our furry kids eat healthy food too, even when it comes to treats and chewy bones they love!

All 3 of my furry babies love to chew. Our pitbull Passion is a major chewer, and not many bones last long when she gets her paws on them. There is actually there’s not much that she won’t chew when it comes to tasty bones. That’s why I think it’s important the the treats we give our dogs are healthy options.

Risks associated with rawhide:

We use to give them all sorts of bones that were made from Rawhide, however we recently learned the dangers of Rawhide, and now they don’t get those anymore. We leaned that Rawhide can cause choking and blockage risks for our pets. In fact, this is a much bigger risk than contamination or digestive irritation. If a dog is chewing on a Rawhide snack, and then swallows large pieces the rawhide can then get stuck in the esophagus or other parts of the digestive tract.

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 the use of chemicals in processing rawhide products.

Thankfully we found SmartBones which is a much healthier alternative to Rawhide our dogs love. These bones are made with real chicken, and vegetables. They are also completely rawhide-free, and highly digestible.  You can find them available at most pet stores nationwide in a variety of flavors such as Peanut Butter, Chicken, Sweet Potato, Dental, Hip & Joint, Skin & Coat, and Calming.

Dog chews can help keep your furry kids teeth clean, and thier jaws strong. Additionally they help to stimulate thier minds stay stimulated, which in turn can help prevent boredom and possibly destructive behavior. SmartBones are a much healthier alternative to give your pouch. They have the taste our dogs seem to love, and it satisfies them in safe, and fun way that they have not been able to resist!
