Premium Protein
Dogs require protein, and because protein can't be stored in their body, they need a new supply every day. Chicken is an ideal source of protein because it is lower in calories, fats and saturated fats than most other meats.

Chicken is extremely dense in nutrients, including protein, zinc, iron, phosphorous, riboflavin, thiamin and niacin.

Chicken contains significant quantities of many minerals, including iron, zinc, magnesium and phosphorous.

There are many chicken jerky treats on the market, but they are not all the same. It is critical that the chicken treats you choose be all natural. It is of prime importance that your dog gets a treat without additives, preservatives, or coloring. Your best bet is to read the ingredients label. If there is something listed that is hard to pronounce, choose a different product! Once your dog tastes the all-natural goodness of a healthy treat, he will surely show you his preference next time you go for the bag.
