Ten Of The Best Things Your Dog Can Chew On

Fish Skin Chews.

Fish skin chews are an excellent alternative for rawhide and perfect for dogs with allergies. This single ingredient chew is made from the outer layer of different ocean fish. Dehydrated until it hardens yet still offers some health benefits for your dog. The boosted levels of Omega 3 and Omega 6 help to support healthy skin and coat.

Fish skin chews are crunchy chews that are more like a snack than a chew. However, they are digestible, unlike rawhides. Some dogs tend to chew through them easily so small pieces may break off. Also, be warned. They do have a fishy smell. Wash your hands right after giving them to your dog to prevent a lingering odor.
