What makes Nothin’ to Hide® the preferred alternative to traditional rawhide chews?

Our collagen-based chews begin as a very fine powder, which is hydrated, shaped and oven baked. We then apply our beef, chicken and peanut butter coatings for maximum flavor and palatability. Our patent pending process utilizes collagen and other ingredients, produced in human-grade collagen production facilities. This collagen is used in a number of human consumable products including
health supplements, beef processing and cosmetics.

The proven benefits of collagen in pets include:

  • Reduces joint pain
  • Reduces fat and builds lean muscle
  • Improves digestive health
  • Boosts skin and coat health
