Fortified Treats With Healthy Benefits
Drs. Foster & Smith Educational Staff

Thanks to nutritional and scientific advances, many of today's dog treats are much more than fun and rewarding - they're also fortified with vitamins, minerals, and ingredients to help promote and maintain good health from the inside out.

Dental Treats
Greenies A variety of dental treats are designed to help prevent painful, costly dental problems. Greenies® - a lasting chew treat - stimulate gums, reduce plaque, and eliminate dreaded "doggie breath" with natural chlorophyll. If your dog prefers chewing rawhide, give mint-infused freshness that'll stop bad breath and help keep your dog's teeth clean. Reward your dog with Dental SmartBones, which freshen breath and reduce tartar buildup and satisfy his need to chew.

Arthritis Treats
Joint Guard Joint maintenance in older pets depends on daily supplementation. Now you can reward your achy companion with nutraceutical treats such as Joint Guard and Joint Jerky® TR Hip & Joint Supplement that contain glucosamine, chondroitin, and other ingredients used by veterinarians for their patients with arthritis.

Calming Treats
Ultra Calm Biscuits If your dog becomes destructive, nervous, or frightened in situations he cannot understand (such as storms, veterinarian visits, or separation from you or familiar surroundings), a delicious calming treat can help. Ultra-Calm Biscuits and Mellow Formula Chicken Fillet Plus Dog Treats supply vitamins and soothing ingredients to help calm your dog naturally.

Waste Deodorizer Treats
Lawn Guard Treats Your pet's waste can be made more tolerable with specially fortified treats. If your dog's or cat's urine is turning your lawn brown, give Lawn Guard Treats or Green-UM Treats, both with Yucca extracts. Both treats neutralize your pet's urine to help keep your lawn green and healthy.

Take treating to the next level with specially formulated fortified treats. Before giving any nutritional supplement or treat, know your pet's nutritional needs and relevant medical conditions, and consult your veterinarian if you have questions. Also, make sure treats constitute no more than 10% of your pet's diet.
