Although this brand is a little more expensive than other products (certainly more expensive than those using artificial/filler ingredients), the difference shows in pet health and longevity.  To ZiwiPeak, It’s NOT about cutting corners, It’s about building trust between themselves and their customers, and between their customers and their pets.

WOW!

DinoBone

 

A Bite into Dino Bones:

All though these 17″ long bones are kept away for tha larger breeds, we think these bones are a great present for any size dog.  Made from real USDA Approved beef these bones are baked with a natural, savory-smokey flavor and are meant to last, offering long lasting gnawing action… without splintering.  Made in the USA, these X-Large bones can assist with eliminating boredom and stress relief/frustration, by teaching positive chewing behavior.  Reducing plaque and tarter buildup on teeth, as well as, relieving teething pain and toughening gums, these Dino’s are a great source of calcium and the soft marrow inside is a potent source of protein and emollients for GOOD health and Shiny Coats.

Wonder Nuggets | BAM!tastic!

This morning I came across the “word” BAM!tastic on a blog about Tumeric (which is good for your dog) and thought, this “word” is perfect for the Mighty, Bite-Size Wonder Nuggets.

Ideal for training or for the dog/dog parent who prefers a softer treat, these dainty tid-bits have base ingredients of Rolled Oats, Vegetable Glycerin and Barley Flour, with the option of choosing Beef + Apples or Unsalted Peanut Butter + Cane Molasses.  Locally MADE and SOURCED in Boston, Massachusetts, by the Good Folks at Polka Dog Bakery, not only are these treats easy on the stomach, but they are also easy on the nose. Smelling BAM!tastic, if you are tempted, please…feel free to try the Peanut Butter Wonder Nuggets; they taste like Ginger Snaps!

MUNCH love!

 

 

Skinz | Catfish, Cod + Salmon

Many are unaware of the nutritious benefits fish can bring to a dogs’ diet.  Sure, it may make them fart a bit more than usual, but isn’t that…well, healthy?

A great substitute for dogs with common protein allergies (beef, chicken, lamb), a diet with tasty FISH has been proven to:

1.) Bolster a Healthy Skin and Coat (Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids)
2.) Improve Digestion (Lean Protein)
3.) Perk-Up Joint Mobility (Anti-inflammatory – Great for Senior Dogs)
4.) Help in the Development of Vision and Brain Function (DHA/EPA – Great for Puppies)
5.) Boost Immune System (Natural Vitamins/Minerals)
6.) Prevent Cardiovascular/Heart Disease (Low in Saturated Fats and Meaningless Calories)

Like the zest of a lemon, the SKINS of FISH are are a nice way to reward your dog with healthy properties, without the risk of weight gain and/or a protein overload.  Best fed cooked, check out these dehydrated Cod Skins, Catfish Skins and Salmon Skins at thaMUNCHbox.com.

MUNCH love!

Note: We ALMOST forgot to tell you that these treats have been CAT APPROVED!

MOOOO tubes!

Round here, MOOOO tubes are the chew of choice for tha Labradors.  We think it’s because of these 3 things:

1.) Helps Build and Support Cartilage

2.) Lubricates tha Joints

3.) Aids w/Joint Stress – due to exercise or Physical Activity

An ideal, Natural source of Chondroitan and Glucosamine, MOOOO tubes are simply the trachea of a cow and are perfect for any size dog.  Whether you get a 3in, 6in or 12in, these hollow chews get an A-plus for creating some gnawing action for cleaner, healthier teeth and gums.  High in Protein, we like these chews to be free of additives, preservatives, chemicals (of any kind) and hormones, but dried to perfection to seal in the juicy, fresh flavors.

As with any Chew, MONITOR your dog.  Chomping for chunks to swallow instead of gnawing or chewing, is a NO-NO!

Wanna try a MOOOO tube?  Check-Out thaMUNCHbox.com!

Liver + Lung | tha Perfect Training Treats!

When it comes to how some canned and dry food is made/processed, we understand why organ meat gets a bad rep.  Mixed/cooked at high temperatures with unhealthy food waste, it’s no wonder why these nutrient-rich meats become un-noticed, shoved under the blanket term “by-product.”

However! We agree with Dr. Becker:

“Organ meats are part of the natural diet of wild canines and felines, and fresh unprocessed organ meats provide superior nourishment to pet dogs and cats”

This, is why we RUV organ meats as treats.  Two in particular, are the Liver and Lungs.  Although unprocessed is best, we know that not every dog is keen on the raw texture.  So, we like the idea of boiling, baking and/or dehydrating.

Common sources for these delicacies include:

– Beef
– Bison – Milder in flavor than beef (lean protein)
– Chicken
– Duck – Novelty Protein (Good for dogs with Allergies/Sensitive to common meat)
– Lamb
– Pork – Low in Sodium
– Rabbit – Novelty Protein (Good for dogs with Allergies/Sensitive to common meat)
– Turkey – Low in Sodium
– Venison – Novelty Protein (Good for dogs with Allergies/Sensitive to common meat)

VL835

Sample some Venison Liver – thaMUNCHbox.com!

Both Liver and Lung are wonderful sources of…

– Protein
– Fat
– Vitamin A
– Vitamin B Complex (B6, B12, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Pantothenic Acid, Folic Acid)
– Vitamin C
– Vitamin K
– Fatty Acids (Omega 3 + 6)
– Essential Amino Acids
– Iron
– Zinc
– Manganese
– Folate
– Phosphorus
– Copper
– Selenium

Note: Please be cautious when it comes to Liver treats.  High in vitamin A, this organ meat is not recommended if you plan on or are already giving a Vitamin A supplement; you want to be mindful of a Vitamin A overdose.

kneeKAPS!

KRimmed with meat, this small, yet thick and strong bone has a taste of liquid smoke that will surely win you a drooling wink from your pooch.  The bone-joint from the hind leg of a cow, these bones are approximately 3″ long, weighing in at about 2.5oz.  Having a soft cartilage casing that will be consumed, the actual center bone is NOT intended for devouring, but rather for hours of gnawing action.  A great protein source, this treat is perfect for an aggressive chewer, promoting healthy teeth and gums. As with any bone, chew or treat, please monitor your dog and provide plenty of drinking water.  CHEWS WISELY, by making sure this bone is slightly bigger than your dogs mouth.

We’ve Got kneeKAPS!
