Sam's Yams Veggie Rawhide Dog Chewz
Sam's Yams Veggie Rawhide Sweet Potato Dog Chewz are a great alternative to pig's ears or bully sticks. These dog treats are made only of human-food quality, fresh sweet potato and nothing more. The trick is in the unique, patent pending drying process, where very thick slabs of sweet potato are transformed into a chew that has characteristics similar to rawhide or jerky. Basically, it's a vegetable rawhide-like chew. Best of all, dogs love them!
Veggie Rawhide sweet potato dog chews are designed for dogs of all sizes. It is similar in size and thickness to most rawhide pieces or pig's ears. Typically they are 1 1/2 to 2 inches wide and 3 to 5 inches long. (Most bags of chews will contain a variety of sizes). Veggie Rawhide is suitable for all dogs but make the best all-around chew for small to medium-sized dogs. They can also be torn into smaller pieces to accommodate the chewing needs of toy breeds. Smaller breeds will chew these for fifteen to twenty five minutes. Medium to larger sized dogs will chew them faster, of course. They are particularly well suited for senior dogs whose teeth and gums are more sensitive.
Each slice is perforated in order to assist in the dehydration of such a large piece. The surface is hard so as to provide dental benefits, yet the chews have a texture similar to rawhide without the negative factors. Each chew has the nutritional value of half of a large sweet potato! Since they are made of sweet potatoes compared to rawhide they are easily digestible for your dog's stomach.
The manufacturer of Sam's Yams is dedicated to providing your dog with an excellent alternative to commercial dog chews and treats. All of their sweet potato dog treats and chews are made from USA-grown orange fleshed, sweet potato (though sometimes you may find them labeled as "yams" at the grocery store). The manufacturer does not use any imported products from China. Sam's Yams veggie treats contain almost 70 TIMES the amount of beta carotene as a lower quality Chinese-made sweet potato dog treat. They are processed at low temperatures to maintain and lock in important vitamins and minerals. This is possible because they use USDA inspected and American-grown sweet potatoes.
These chews and treats are highly nutritious and excellent for your dog's teeth and health. Sweet potatoes are very high in anti-oxidants. These Dog Chewz contain nothing artificial, no sweeteners, colors, or processed food items. No wheat gluten, refined sugars, corn, plastics, polymers, animal by-products, animal digest, or rendered animal meat or fat.
Will not stain floor or carpet; the color does not come off the chew. Furthermore, as it is vegetable based, there are no off-odors, or greasiness to contend with either.
