From The Makers Of SmartBones!! SmartSticks and SmartChips! A Dakota’s Den Exclusive! And…A GIVE-AWAY!!

Ohhhh my doggy  friends, I could barely keep my tongue in my mouth when I found out about this EXCITING SURPRISE  that I have just for YOU!!

Many of you have read over and over about my undying love for my :

because of that love, I get to be the FIRST, see THAT?! THE FIRST to tell you about two new additions to the PetMatrix family of  rawhide-free chew treats! This news is soooo hot off the press that I haven’t received my samples to test, but trust me, they are on their way!

One day our Vet, “Dr.Smiley”, told Mom that giving  me treats that are made of rawhide can be unhealthy for me.  Mom took that information quite seriously and that  is when Mom and I made the switch to   SmartBones. Doggies, am I ever glad that we did!

Now, due to HIGH customer demand, PetMatrix has added SmartSticks

This is a SmartStick! It looks like complete deliciousness! It’s all wrapped up waiting for us to enjoy it! I can’t wait to sink my teeth into one of these!!!

and SmartChips to their rawhide-free dog chew treat product line!

Don’t these look like tasty little appetizers that you would eat at a PAWTY?? Mom said I could invite my doggy friends and entertain with these they are so attractive and delicious-looking! I am sure they taste great too!

That news just makes me spin with excitement!

Similar to the original line of SmartBones, the new products are made with chicken, vegetables and other healthy ingredients!

Martin Glinsky, Ph.D.

Here is a message from my idol, PetMatrix Chief Science Officer Martin Glinsky, Ph.D.

“We’re excited to offer additional rawhide-free options to our customers who have responded so positively to our product line,” 

“Chew treats are an important part of every healthy dog’s diet since eating kibble alone doesn’t thoroughly exercise a dog’s mouth and can cause teeth to become disused and plaque-ridden.”

And, since keeping pets healthy is paramount, SmartSticks and SmartChips contain a special vegetable layer that is fortified with vitamins and minerals to help supplement daily nutritional requirements.  In fact, these treats offer more nutritional benefits than standard chew treats because rawhide treats offer very little nutritional value, Dr. Glinsky said. 

 “Even though rawhide is a form of protein, all proteins aren’t equal,” Dr. Glinsky said.  “Rawhide is an extremely low-quality form of protein, not the type that animals need for nutrition.”

 In addition to health benefits, SmartSticks and SmartChips are easier on a dog’s digestive system compared to rawhide treats.  Both products are 99.2 percent digestible, which reduces the potential for intestinal blockages – a problem that can occur when dogs swallow large pieces of rawhide treats.

Thank you Dr. Glinsky, I’ll take it from here!!

Doggy pals I am so excited I can barely contain myself!  I KNOW that you have to be excited too!  Both SmartSticks and SmartChips are available in Chicken flavor,  and, be still my heart, PEANUT BUTTER FLAVOR!  They are available at fine pet stores throughout the country and at  (Mom is super familiar with that website cause when my “stash” runs low she is online in a flash!! ) I cannot be without my SmartBones and I can’t wait to try SmartSticks and SmartChips!!
