Christmas music has made its way to the Mahoney house, I've busted out my holiday sweaters, and I am pleased to announce that I am more than 1/2 way done with my holiday shopping. High 5 to me! Santa will be stopping by with a few fun gifts for the family, but his sidekick, Santa Paws, is going to be the star in my dog's eyes this holiday season. I like to make sure everyone in my family gets gifts on Christmas, and that includes the dogs too. So, what do 2 spoiled boxers and 1 spoiled pug get to open on Christmas Day? SmartBones® from PetMatrix, of course!
When it comes to what I feed my pets, I always strive to give the very best. My boxers are sensitive to a lot of foods, so we are very cautious on what they consume. I love PetMatrix because they are committed to providing the healthiest, tastiest pet chews available. SmartBones® chews are raw-hide free, highly digestible, and my dogs can attest, 100% delicious.
SmartBones® chews outer layer is made from wholesome, flavorful vegetables, including sweet potatoes, carrots, and peas. The inner layer includes real chicken, for a treat that dogs can't resist. SmartBones SmartChews® are made with a grain-free formula, making them an easy to digest chew. They are vitamin and mineral enriched, contain no artificial coloring, and also come in a variety of fun animal shapes.
Wrigley, my little pug, doesn't make an appearance too often on here because she is about 15 years old. Her main hobbies include sleeping pretty much all day, so she doesn't get too thrilled when we try to take her photo. Since she's an older dog and doesn't have very many teeth left, we can't give her the SmartBones® chews. So, I was really excited to learn that PetMatrix is now offering SmartNaturals, a 100% natural meat treat. The pieces are small and soft, so even my little granny pug has no issues eating them. They are available in 2 different flavor varieties, grass fed Beef and Sweet Potatoes or grass fed Lamb and Rosemary.
We tried giving the boxers Rawhide® when they were puppies and they had a terrible allergic reaction. Our vet said she would never recommend feeding a dog any kind of rawhide treat because it is just not a healthy option for them, even for the ones that aren't allergic. It can pose several health risks, including stomach and intestinal blockage and possible ingestion of the toxic chemicals used to process rawhide chews. Independent digestibility studies show that SmartBones® chews are highly digestible, and tests demonstrate that 9 out of 10 dogs prefer SmartBones® chews over the leading rawhide chews.
PetMatrix offers a wide variety of treats to fit your dog's needs. Don't let your pets go through the holidays empty-pawed this year! Fill their stockings with delicious SmartBones® chews!
