Natural chews for puppies and dogs come with major benefits. Keep reading as we detail many of the amazing benefits of natural chews for puppies and dogs.
DENTAL HEALTH BENEFITS
We all know how difficult it can be to brush your dog’s teeth regularly. Heck, it’s the reason why most pet parents don’t. Not to mention how expensive it can be to bring your pup in for regular dental visits at the vet each year!
One of the reasons why dogs love to chew so much comes from natural instinct. Their wild ancestors cared for their own teeth that way. Now that they’re domesticated, diet and lifestyle play important roles in their dental health. Raw and natural chews for puppies and dogs won’t replace regular cleanings, but they will certainly add a much-needed boost to his or her hygienic routine.
Chewing on a raw bone or treat will help scrape off plaque build-up, reduce gingival inflammation, and the motion of chewing will help massage their gums. Even natural duck and chicken feet for pets can be considered nature’s (digestible) toothbrushes!
Most “boutique” pet centers do not carry the quantity, selection, or variety of natural chews for puppies and dogs that The Noble Paw carries, however, having spent decades in Animal Health Care, we understand the importance and benefits of this kind of natural chews for puppies and dogs. The Noble Paw carries Red Barn and similar labels, and a very wide variety of Bully Stix, Whimzee’s, etc., that will be a suitable option for every size pet.
THE BENEFITS OF LIVE ENZYMES
Digestive enzymes are important proteins that support numerous functions in your pup’s body. Their primary function is to help digest and absorb all the nutrients in their diet. Live enzymes also help kill dangerous bacteria that your pet doesn’t need!
In addition to digestive health, enzymes provide other necessary functions: immune support, regulation of hormones, and anti-inflammatory properties are just a few! Unfortunately, many pets are on enzyme-deficient diets, and a lot of popular pet foods and treats can actually deplete your cat or dog’s ability to produce their own enzymes. Raw and natural treats—especially single-ingredient protein natural chews for puppies and dogs—will help prevent enzyme deficiency in your pet.
Most pet foods you’ll find on pet store shelves, including treats and chews, will be loaded with starches. Starches turn to sugars which are not only bad for your pets’ dental health but have numerous unhealthy side effects like weight gain and high blood sugar. In pet food, starches (or carbohydrates) are much like empty calories for humans.
This might surprise you as a pet parent, but dogs actually don’t need starches in their diet! To survive, pups need healthy proteins and fats. When you find grains and starches in store-bought kibble and treats, it’s for the cost benefits of the manufacturers…not your pet.
Raw and natural chews offer crucial nutrients: fats, minerals, and proteins are vital in your pet’s overall health. Of course, treats aren’t meant to be the sole provider of a balanced diet, but raw chews are the natural supplements your pet needs!
Low-fat, high-protein natural chews for puppies and dogs can help build and support muscular health and also provide other nutrients like phosphorus, calcium, and wet glucosamine. But more importantly, you’ll find only quality ingredients that are derived from natural sources, free of additives, hormones, and preservatives.
Natural treats and chews are also incredibly beneficial for joint and mobility health. Just think of the muscle in your pets’ jaws, working to break down those delicious treats! The collagen found in the tendons, cartilage, and ligaments of raw chews will also help replenish the connective tissues in your pup’s body, especially as he ages.
MENTAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH BENEFITS
Boredom and anxiety play major roles in your pet’s mental and emotional health. If your pet exhibits destructive behaviors, he or she is most likely under-stimulated and dissatisfied. As pet parents, we want nothing more than to be with our pets 24/7, but the reality is, we can’t always give our beloved companions the constant attention they crave.
In addition to regular exercise and playtime, raw chews provide your pet with wonderful mental stimulation. This is particularly useful for anxious pets or pets that suffer separation anxiety, or as anti-boredom ideas for hours in the crate.
For all these reasons and more, we’re so excited to carry the largest assortment of natural chews for puppies and dogs, body part-chews, etc sourced and prepared in the USA ranches and farms. We are going to be offering duck feet for all dogs and cats, beef trachea for the larger pups, and beef or lamb trachea for small dogs, along with Bully Stix, snouts, etc.
