What’ s the difference between Nothin To Hide® Collagen chews and other chews on the market?
Nothin To Hide® Collagen chews are packed with 75% protein and are a lean, healthy chew for your dog. Other chews on the market are made with high carbohydrate fillers such as starch, rice, flour etc. that are not as appealing to dogs and which tend to promote pet obesity.
What is Collagen and how does it benefit my dog?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human and animal body, accounting for about one-third of its protein composition.
It’s one of the major building blocks of bones, skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Collagen is also found in many other body parts, including blood vessels, corneas, and teeth. Hydrolyzed Collagen is used in protein shakes, vitamins & supplements, cosmetics and food flavoring and has been proven to increase muscle mass, build stronger bones and joints, reduce arthritis and improve skin and coat condition in dogs.
How are Nothin To Hide® chews made? Does Nothin To Hide® contain artificial flavors or fillers?
Nothin To Hide® chews are made in a GFSI approved processing facility in Brazil. Our proteins are all human grade and sourced from humanely-raised animals.
