Pet owners love to spoil their dogs, and a great way to show them your love is by providing them with treats that will get their tails wagging and keep them entertained for hours.
Finding the right treats and chews for your pup can be a challenge, however, and every dog possesses a unique chew personality that results in different needs and preferences.
While a dog’s chew personality is composed of several factors, such as their health needs, dietary restrictions, and size, a dog’s chew capacity, or chew strength, plays a significant role in determining which treats are best suited to them.
Continue reading for a guide to determine your dog’s individual chew strength and the treat options that will work best for them.
Every dog loves treats, but their stomachs may not always agree! If your dog is older, or has a sensitive stomach, you want a dog treat or chew that won't cause digestional issues. Here is our list of the top four healthy dog treats for sensitive stomachs — available only at Natural Farm!
Despite their unusual appearance, chicken feet offer numerous benefits for dogs, particularly those with sensitive stomachs. First and foremost, chicken feet are a natural source of glucosamine and chondroitin, which are essential for joint health
These compounds help maintain cartilage and reduce inflammation, making them ideal for dogs prone to joint issues. Additionally, chicken feet are rich in collagen, a protein that supports healthy skin, coat, and digestion. The collagen content can help soothe and heal the lining of the gastrointestinal tract, making it beneficial for dogs with digestive sensitivities. Our single-ingredient a nail-free chicken feet come from free-range Brazilian chicken and is safe to feed dogs with sensitive tummies.
Beef Gullet Sticks
Natural Farm’s Beef Gullet Sticks are a high-value treat with a deliciously complex flavor. This special treat is softer than bully sticks but equally as entertaining.
The digestible treat is gentle on a sensitive stomach and has a high natural source of glucosamine and chondroitin, which promotes positive joint health for pups. Gullet sticks are very easy to chew and are highly recommended for senior dogs, dogs with dental issues, and younger and pickier pups. They contain a single ingredient of 100% high-quality human-grade beef esophagus for pure flavor and never have questionable preservatives, additives, or flavorings.
Our Beef Jerky Treats are wider and flatter than our Beef Gullet Sticks and provide pups with a resistant chew that softens to a fully-digestible flavorful treat. They are a great option for light chewers, dogs with dental issues, senior dogs, small breeds, and puppies that still offer a very flavorful chew.
Made from the highest quality, human-grade beef esophagus with a rich source of chondroitin and glucosamine to extend joint health, it is both mouth-watering and delightfully textured for dental benefits. Natural Farm bakes beef esophagus to form a uniform sheet of beef, forming the ideal treat for lighter chewers.
A crisp and savory treat for flavorsome fun and another one of the safest dog bones are Beef Trachea Chews which are a highly palatable and a very beneficial way to reward your dog. This kind of treat comes in a fun shape and texture that keeps your dog excited, all while providing hip and joint support through an excellent source of chondroitin and glucosamine without additives or preservatives.
These are highly digestible chews made from 100% grass-fed beef without preservatives, additives, hormones, or coloring, ideal for sensitive stomachs. They are also ideal for medium-sized dogs and best for light and medium chewers and come in three-, six-, and twelve-inch options.
Whenever you’re introducing a new treat, it’s important to monitor your dog and provide plenty of fresh water. We recommend minimizing chewing time to three to five minutes at first and increase over a five-day period. Also, be extra attentive to young dogs and puppies, and steer away from chews altogether for puppies under three months of age.
As a responsible dog owner, you should only allow your dog to consume these products in moderation and they should not replace any meals.
