Top 5 Natural Chews for Dogs
Oh we love a natural chew here at Collar Club! There are a great range of natural chews out there - it just depends what you are looking for. Whether you are looking for high value, long lasting or low in fat, we have the chew recommendation for you.
Now I know, I know. tripe is smelly. Like, really smelly. But it doesn't always have to be! This wonderful protein comes in many shapes, sizes and forms. The most common type of tripe is beef, but you can also get it in lamb quite commonly too. It is generally very low fat, so great for dogs who need to lose some weight, or suffer from illnesses such as pancreatitis.
Green tripe is the unwashed (smellier) version that is commonly seen in dog treats, and is full of digestive enzymes, fatty acids omega 3 and 6, digestive and is a great source of protein.
Alternatively, you can feed washed tripe, which while not retaining all the benefits of raw or green tripe, is still a great low fat, non smelly option. Collar Club's honeycomb chews are washed and then dried to create the perfect crispy chew.
Traditionally made and enjoyed for centuries by the people of the Himalayas, this 100% natural hard cheese is now available as a long lasting chew for dogs. They are quite hard, and therefore long lasting- although we wouldn't recommend them if your dog is a cruncher.
They are grain free, relatively low in fat and when you get to the end you can pop the remains in the microwave for just a few seconds (try 30 and keep checking it...) to create a tasty cheesy cinder toffee texture chew.
Rabbit ears come in a variety of styles. You can get them dried, puffed or even furry! The furry ones are great as a natural dewormer, but all varieties are great for dogs who need a hypoallergenic diet.
Ahh. The humble pizzle stick. So for those of you that don't know, pizzle sticks are made from the precious parts of male cattle. They are also known as bully sticks, or in our case... Wonky Willies!
Moon Bones are a great tasting chew treat for dogs with numerous health benefits, and a great boredom breaker too! They are made from beef cartilage is a natural source of Glucosamine and Chondroitin. Despite their name, they contain no bone so there is no risk of it splintering, just super flexible and resistant connective tissue making it a perfect chew. Also, because of their firm texture, it promotes good oral health by scraping and cleaning the teeth reducing tartar and plaque build up.
