Jerky Chews: What They Are and Their Benefits


A Healthier Alternative to rawhide

Jerky chews are one of the most popular treats that dog owners choose for their pups and are a healthier alternative to rawhide and manufactured chews.These chews consist of lean ground beef, chicken, or salmon that has been cut into strips and dehydrated. Dehydrating the meat removes nearly all of its moisture content, so that it’s not susceptible to spoilage like fresh meat would be. Nutritious, all-natural jerky chews provide a savory flavor for your canine friend, but with a much longer shelf life.

Not only do dogs love them, but they are low calorie, rich in lean protein and essential amino acids, and a great supplement to any dog’s diet. These lean, high protein chews are terrific for your dog’s muscle-building, growth, skin, and fur, and lean protein is important in helping to reduce doggy obesity. In addition, these highly-digestible and delicious treats can help to remove plaque and tartar, improving dental health.

Jerky chews are available in various sizes and shapes, allowing you to choose the best size based on how aggressively your dog chews, and his size. It’s up to you, as these chews can be given to your furry friend as part of their regular diet or simply as a quick snack or occasional treat.

However, not all jerky chews are made the same and it’s important to do your research to ensure that you're buying the safest, highest quality dog treats available from a reputable manufacturer. Feeding your dog anything else can cause digestive distress or even toxicity and giving your pup jerky made for people is especially dangerous, as it can contain ingredients that can make him sick.
