Ok, Momma, whadweget???
Oh that's right! It's national pet dental health month... I don't really think much about my teeth but I do know my Momma's been complaining with hers... but she's like a hundred years old... I'm just a pup of almost four. You wouldn't think I'd need to worry about them.
...What's that Momma??? I get an extra treat to take care of my teeth??? Well, heck, I'm IN! We get to review SmartChips: The Healthy Alternative to Rawhide in Peanut Butter Flavor.
Oh, I'm 'sposed to show you the nice package.
My Momma HATES rawhide... she's seen it hurt pups awful bad! But she was curious about these because they were made from dried chicken breast. And she says they look like rawhide. She loved how long it took me to chew them up.
Here are the ingredients: Corn, Chicken, Sorbitol, Glycerin, Fructose, Pork Gelatin, Peanut Butter, Barley Malt Syrup, Maltodextrin, Sweet Potatoes, Peas, Carrots, Dicalcium Phosphate, Salt, Ferrous Sulfate, Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Sulfate, Artificial Flavor, Niacinamide, Xanthan Gum, Potassium Sorbate (preservative), Sodium Pyrophosphate, Sodium Propionate (preservative), Sodium Tripolyphosphate, Vitamin E, d-Calcium Pantothenate, Riboflavin Supplement, Thiamine Hydrochloride, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Manganese Sulfate, Vitamin B12 Supplement, FD&C Red 40.

Ok Momma, now that we got that out of the way, GIMME!!!
Oh! Nom nom nom!!!
Seriously, Momma gave me ONE treat and took about a million pics!
I just LOVE the Smartchips... but Momma, as always has her own opinions! So take it away Momma:
Macy Blue Momma here. As always finances are of a concern... These are actually affordable...coming in at 4 cents more each than the Checkups we currently buy. And Macy LOVES them, another plus. I also really like how long it takes her to devour them. Our regular ones are gone in seconds...these take several minutes of devoted chewing.
On the downside, I don't like that the first ingredient is corn. I try to feed as little corn as possible and won't even consider a dog food with corn in it. And these have way more ingredients. But I can still see us buying these. But let's give Macy the final word:
Thanks Momma! I give SmartChips four paws up! Momma gives them a reluctant two thumbs up...mostly for the corn.
Neither Creekhiker nor Macy Blue were compensated for this review. Mr Chewy sent one bag of SmartChips Peanut Butter Flavor for Macy Blue to devour... or not.
