If your family is anything like mine then everyone gets gifts at the holidays — even the pets! Our dogs are never left out and we usually get them a package of plush toys. We know the toys will be destroyed by the end of the day but sometimes you have to splurge and show them some love. The rest of the year we try to avoid buy dog toys that have squeakers because they will not survive long in our house! My dogs also love bones, especially rawhide bones but we’re not fans of some of the side effects that can occur.
I was thrilled to learn about SmartBones, a smart alternative to rawhide bones. SmartBones have all the benefits of rawhide bones without the rawhide. My aunt’s dog who now lives with us cannot have rawhide under any circumstance so these are a great alternative for her. SmartBones offer many great features including:
- great taste (I have proof below!)
- safe because they are free of rawhide
- made with real, dried chicken breast
- chewing promotes healthy dental care in dogs
- fortified with vitamins and minerals
Toby, our rat terrier, was also an immediate fan. Getting these bones away from the dogs was the biggest challenge. They would have been content to chew the entire bone up if there hadn’t been an intervention. I would say that they received the stamp of approval from both of my dogs!
The SmartBones are available in three varieties – chicken, peanut butter, and dental. They are also available in four sizes – mini, small, medium, and large. You can choose the correct size based on the weight of your dog. There is something for every dog as long as your dog likes bones and likes to chew! I really appreciate the variety available especially now that my aunt’s dogs are living with us which adds a small pug and a large yellow lab to the mix! It’s great to know that they can all enjoy SmartBones!
