We did some grooming: Introducing our new SmartyPaws chews
By Caroline Fontein, Dog Mom & Pet Lifestyle Contributor
Notice anything different? Our premium SmartyPaws health supplements for dogs just got a makeover.
We now have new, enhanced formulas for puppy, adult and senior dogs to make good health for your canine companion even easier. Howl yeah!
Plus, they’re now soy-free and available in a new chicken flavor. You’ll have to excuse the drool.
SmartyPaws are designed by vets to support good health from nose to tail - all in one easy serving.
Here’s what’s inside our new, enhanced SmartyPaws chews:
Multifunctional daily bite of health
Because we don’t rollover when it comes to good health for our canine cohabitants.
So, our new formulas are packed with premium ingredients to support good health from nose to tail - all in one convenient serving.
Hip and Joint Health
Because there’s more to life than sit and stay. For happy, healthy and on-the-go dogs, we include glucosamine, chondroitin, bromelain, green-lipped mussel, MSM and omega-3 EPA & DHA fatty acids from fish oil to support healthy bones and joints. These ingredients help promote cartilage and joint development, like for your growing puppy. They also ease joint stiffness due to normal exercise and activity to support adult and senior dogs as they age.
Let us pamper your pup with the health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids. These healthy fats can be good for dogs too. Here’s the fur 1-1. We include omega-3 EPA & DHA from fish oil and omega-3 ALA from organic chia seeds and organic alfalfa to help your dog's skin maintain normal moisture content and provide support for dogs with sensitive skin.
Gut Health and Immune Support
Did Timmy fall in the well again? Life takes guts, even for dogs. That’s why we include green-lipped mussel, probiotics (Bacillus coagulans), omega-3 EPA & DHA fatty acids from fish oil and organic turmeric.
Green-lipped mussel and probiotics help maintain a healthy intestinal tract, gut health and support normal bowel function. These ingredients, along with omega-3 EPA & DHA from fish oil and organic turmeric, also support a healthy immune system.
Does your Schnauzer have the sniffles? We include omega-3 EPA & DHA fatty acids from fish oil and organic turmeric to support dogs with seasonal and environmental allergies.
Omega-3 EPA & DHA, along with organic turmeric, help your dog maintain a normal inflammatory response. These ingredients can also help support occasional discomfort associated with allergies.
We went into the (sea)weeds for this one. Because kelp can have health benefits for your dog. So, we include organic kelp powder (Laminaria digitata) to support your dog’s thyroid health.
Kelp powder supports a normal metabolic rate, along with your dog's endocrine, hormone and enzyme systems. Those systems are important for overall health and help regulate the body’s growth, metabolism and development.
Urinary Tract Health
Another sketchy stain on the carpet? We might not be able to help with house training (or your carpet), but when it comes to your dog’s urinary tract health, we’re on it. Cranberries are well-known for helping with urinary tract health in humans. They can help your precious pup too!
Cranberries contain Proanthocyanidins (PACS) which can help maintain normal function of the urinary tract. They also help promote optimal urinary tract health for dogs.
Made with Premium Ingredients
Only the top ingredients for your top dog. To support good health from nose to tail we use superstar ingredients including:
One of the most commonly-used supplements for hip and joint support in dogs. It helps maintain the synovial fluid that lubricates joints. You can read more about the health benefits of glucosamine for dogs here.
This is found naturally in cartilage and enhances the functions of joint and connective tissue.
Naturally derived from pineapple and helps support the structural integrity of joints and connective tissue.
Methylsulfonylmethane or MSM is well-known in the dog supplement world because it helps enhance good hip and joint health.
Native to New Zealand, these time-tested mollusks have also eased joint pain in humans for more than 100 years. They're also well-known for supporting hip and joint health in dogs.
Omega-3 fatty acids including:
Omega-3 EPA & DHA from fish oil sourced from small fish including anchovies, sardines and mackerel.
Omega-3 ALA from organic chia seeds and organic alfalfa
This spice is well-known for its many health benefits, especially when it comes to supporting a normal inflammatory response.
- Probiotics (Bacillus coagulans) - Ours has a 95 percent survivability rate to ensure that the majority of these healthy bugs make it to your dog's gut alive. No refrigeration required!
How many do I give my dog?
We’re weighing in. For puppy (3-12 months), adult (1-7 years old) and senior (7+ years old) dogs, give 1 chew daily for the first week and increase until full dose is reached based on the weights below. You can also check the Directions for Use on your SmartyPaws pouch.
New flavors! They’re floor-licking good.
Forget the table scraps. We use a unique blend of natural flavors for our peanut butter and new chicken-flavored formulas.
Dogs go nuts for them. But we’re still peanut and tree nut-free. And while we’re no chicken when it comes to flavor, our new chicken-flavored chews are also poultry-free.
That's because we know that dogs can have food sensitivities too. So, we took allergies into account. Call us chewsy.
SmartyPaws are free of:
- Tee nut allergens
- No synthetic colors or flavors.
Designed by Vets
We worked with some of the brightest and best minds in the pet health. Each ingredient is carefully selected based on recommendations from our veterinary advisory board. Because we want to help your dog live a happier and healthier life.
Manufacturing you trust
We’ve got good pedigree! Our SmartyPaws chews are certified by the National Animal Supplement Council (NASC) to let you know we’re committed to the highest current standards of quality in the pet health supplement industry.
We adhere to a series of strict manufacturing guidelines, and every finished batch is third-party lab tested for quality assurance. Look for the NASC seal on your next pouch of SmartyPaws.
For the Love of Dogs
We want to make the world a happier and healthier place for all animals whether they’re scaled, slimy, feathered, furry or otherwise. So, we’re a proud supporter of the Humane Society of the United States and make a donation for every product sold.
It’s our way of saying thank you for all the wagging tails and slobbery kisses that make us smile, even if it means the occasional mangled shoe.
