You know how they say that “the third time is the charm?” Well, this is the THIRD time that I have featured SmartBones on my blog and I will tell you the reason! Ever since the first time I tasted them they are my FAVORITE BONES! I can’t control myself when they are in the same vicinity that I am. When I see a SmartBone I want ONE NOW! Check out the videos below that show me in Sheltie SmartBone Bliss!
Mom loved the “crinkly” packaging sound in the above video! Who cares about the sound? I just care about getting at those SmartBones!
What Are SmartBones?
SmartBones by PetMatrix, are chew treats made with chicken, vegetables and other healthy ingredients. These raw-hide free treats are perfect for the four-t0-five out of 10 consumers who prefer not to feed their doggies rawhide.
Who came up with this genius idea?
Martin Glinsky, Ph.D., that’s who! Dr. Glinsky is considered one of the premier pet nutritionists in the country and is currently the Chief Science Officer at PetMatrix, creators of SmartBones and DreamBone chews. He received his undergraduate education at Cornell University and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Illinois, specializing in Animal Nutrition and Nutritional Biochemistry.
He has lectured extensively around the world on pet nutrition and dietary formulation and started his own pet food manufacturing company in 1980, specializing in holistic and organic pet foods. His expertise in formulating, manufacturing, analyzing and testing of nutritional products for pets is well known and respected.
Dr. Glinsky formulated, engineered and produced the first dry pet foods to incorporate fresh ingredients, the standard of the holistic pet food category today. He has been intimately involved with many of the best-selling holistic foods brands being marketed around the world.
Wanna know more?
SmartBones are 99.2% digestible, which is higher than the digestibility of premium dog foods (85% digestibility).
Chicken, vegetables and other healthy ingredients dogs will love are used in making SmartBones.
SmartBones are the first treats of their kind to be enhanced with vitamins and minerals.
SmartBones are safer for dogs than regular rawhide treats, which may cause intestinal blockages.
SmartBones are environmentally friendly, whereas a toxic chemical process is needed to create consumable rawhide for treats.
SmartBones are available in Peanut Butter (which is what I was eating in the video) and Chicken Flavors. There is also a Dental variety with additional teeth health benefits. (Mom PAWTICULARLY LOVES THESE!)
Four different sizes of SmartBones are available, based on a dog’s weight:
|Small Dog (5-10 lbs)||Mini SmartBones|
|Small – Medium Dogs (11-25 lbs)||Small SmartBones|
|Medium Dogs (26-50 lbs)||Medium SmartBones|
|Large Dogs (over 50 lbs)||Large SmartBones|

I was not compensated for this review. I was sent SmartBones months ago when I did my first review and because I love them so much and the readers were so excited about the contest, SmartBones wanted to do another give-away! I WAS given more SmartBones for me to enjoy and I can’t wait for YOU to enjoy them TOO!
