Dog owners want the best for their canine friend. They want to ensure they’re as healthy as can be. Besides regular exercise, one of the best things you can do for your dog is give them a good, balanced diet

Rather than giving them processed treats, reach for 100 percent natural collagen chews. Here’s why your dog will love our long-lasting collagen sticks.

What is collagen? 

Collagen is a natural product derived from sources including:

  • Fish skin, scales, and bones
  • Chicken, eggs, ducks, and turkey
  • Bones, cartilage, and hides of cows
  • Bones and skin of pigs
  • Vegetable sources like beans, leafy greens, and berries

Collagen is naturally produced in the body of dogs and humans, but we can improve our overall health by supplementing it with dietary resources. For dogs, it can have a number of exceptional benefits, such as:

  • Improving hip health by aiding in the repair of connective tissues
  • Restoring elasticity in their skin 
  • Softening their coat and repairing dry, itchy spots
  • Soothing their digestive system and gastrointestinal issues
  • Bettering dental health and the condition of their nails

Moreover, collagen chews can help senior dogs by restoring their vitality in several ways, from replacing lost collagen to restoring soft tissues and preventing arthritis to stimulating their appetite. 

Why your dog will love collagen

Your dog is sure to be a happy camper when you give them collagen sticks. As mentioned above, collagen has an exceptional number of physical and mental benefits for your dog. And they’re not just effects that you’ll see. Your dog is sure to feel the difference. 

After enough collagen sticks, your dog is sure to feel more active and mentally alert. You’ll notice the pep in their step, too, seeing a little more life when you play. But there’s more to it than just the benefits. 

Our collagen sticks are 100 percent natural and long-lasting. Your dog will have an excellent, tough treat to chew on for the better part of the day if they want. And it tastes great! So not only will they feel great after finishing up their stick, they’ll be just as excited when they hear you open another one for them.

When should you give your dog collagen chews? 

If your dog is a chewer, it will be a smart move to give them a collagen chew. Destructive chewing can be frustrating for dog owners, as the last thing you want to come home to is a chewed up couch. But dogs instinctively love to chew, so curbing their habits isn’t as simple as telling them, “No!” The perfect middle ground is allowing your dog to chew while providing them with health benefits — all while protecting your furniture.  

Moreover, senior and aging dogs should be given collagen chews, first and foremost.  Our long-lasting dog bones are also great for them, as they give them something calming to do that improves their dental health while giving them all-natural supplemental collagen. You can give them to your senior dog midday or as an after-dinner snack, especially if they’re not finishing most of their meals. 

And while senior dogs greatly benefit from supplemental collagen, this doesn’t mean that young dogs shouldn’t have it. While their bodies are still producing natural collagen, it can be beneficial for them to consume more. This can offset early stages of arthritis and joint disease, especially in large breeds of dogs — Newfoundlands, Bernese Mountain dogs, St. Bernards, Leonbergers, etc.    

So don’t be afraid to give them to your dog early on. While puppies won’t necessarily need the collagen, those young adult dogs and teenage dogs will see the positives of gnawing on their collagen chews. For more than the taste, too!

These long-lasting chews give them something entertaining and calming to do, all while providing them with essential nutrients that can improve their overall health, from their coat to their digestive system.
