Feeding Guidelines: These treats are recommended for dogs 9 months and older with a minimum 5kg in weight. One chew per day is recommended to maintain the digestive tract and promote dental health. Be sure that your dog has access to fresh water. As with any edible chew, monitor your dog while chewing. Ensure that your dog adequately chews the product. Do not feed the chew if you question your dog’s ability or willingness to adequately chew. Swallowing any time without adequately chewing may be harmful or fatal to a dog.
Primary Ingredients and Actions:
-Wheat Starch: An essential ingredient which gives the treats a very detailed shape. Because it is an essential ingredient of the treat, it is not to be seen as a ‘filler’ to replace other nutritional ingredients.
-Potato Starch: A complex carbohydrate, the native potato starch used in Paragon dog chews is 98% digestible, so it is a good energy source and it contains no gluten.
-Glycerin (Glycerol): Obtained from vegetable oil, glycerin is a naturally colorless, odorless liquid that helps retain moisture and increase palatability.
-Powdered Cellulose: Cellulose (dietary fiber) is the most common organic substance on the planet. Powdered cellulose in these treats is purified and totally free of any contaminants. It absorbs water, but is insoluble in water. This helps to make the dog’s digestive tract function regularly.
-Lecithin: Derived from soybeans, lecithin is used in the manufacturing process and acts as a natural emulsifier.
-Brewer’s Yeast: A natural source of the B complex vitamins, minerals and amino acids which aid in digestion and help maintain healthy skin and coat.
-Rice: A complex carbohydrate, rice is highly digestible and also hypoallergenic, as well as gluten free. Rice also contains important nutrients including iron, phosphorus and calcium.
