Over the last few months, there have been some changes in our home. For those who have been regular visitors, you may have noticed that I haven’t mentioned Balty, our handsome pitbull. Balty left our family at the beginning of October and returned to the family he had before us. This was a tough thing for our family to do but it was what was best for him.
At the beginning of November, we did welcome a new little fur baby in our home and that would be my sweet little Pancake. Pancake is a 6 month old Morkie (Maltese/Yorkshire Terrier mix).
Pancake the Morkie
Now that we have Pancake, a tiny little 8lb. dog, we’ve had to change a few things that we shop for, including puppy treats.
Thanks to the folks at PetMatrix, Pancake now has a nice supply of SmartBones to snack on!
As I mentioned in a previous post about PetMatrix, they are committed to providing the healthiest, tastiest pet chews available. The Healthy Alternative to Rawhide®, SmartBones® chews are rawhide-free, highly digestible, and 100% delicious.
SmartBones® chews 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 yummy taste dogs can’t resist! Available in scrumptious recipes such as Chicken, Sweet Potato, Peanut Butter, Beef and Dental, your furry friend will have plenty of options, including the new SmartChews® and SmartNaturals® 100% natural meat treats.
The SmartBones SmartChews are easily Pancake’s favorite treat. He just loves them and they keep him busy and when he is all done with one, he tends to nap like someone who ate a 7 course meal.
In addition to chews, PetMatrix is now offering SmartNaturals®, a 100% natural meat treat. SmartNaturals® are available in two delectable varieties, made with grass fed beef and sweet potatoes or grass fed lamb and rosemary.
I like to use these as reward treats for when Pancake comes back in from going potty. If he had it his way, he would get an entire bag at once.
Just Say No to Rawhide!
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.
Once again, we are very happy with our SmartBones products and I think Pancake is even happier!
