The Benefits of Collagen Chews for Dogs

Collagen Chews are a healthy choice for your canine companion. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes and provide numerous benefits. Explore the wonders of collagen, why collagen is good for dogs, and the advantages of incorporating beef Collagen Chews into your dog’s diet.

What is Collagen?

Collagen is a vital protein found beneath the top layer of skin in both animals and humans. Serving as one of the primary components of connective tissues, collagen acts as the "glue" that helps hold the body together. In recent years, the benefits of collagen have been extended to our furry companions, as it offers significant advantages. Here are some of the many benefits collagen has to offer dogs.

Benefits of Collagen

Collagen Chews are all the rage with dogs for many reasons. Collagen Sticks are great boredom busters, they are an extremely durable chew like our single-ingredient  Bully Sticks, but with a little lower price point. Most of all Collagen Chews offer a variety of health benefits for dogs:

Packed with Protein, Low in Fat:

Redbarn’s Collagen Chews are low in fat, while maintaining their protein-rich composition. With a high protein content, these treats help support your dog's overall health and muscle development. Including Collagen Chews in your dog's diet is an added protein boost while promoting dental health. By opting for dog Collagen Chews, you can provide your dog with a tasty treat while keeping their fat intake in check.

Collagen Is Highly Digestible:

Digestibility is a crucial factor when selecting chews for your dog. Beef collagen chews are highly digestible, making them gentler on your dog's stomach, reducing the risk of digestive discomfort. Every dog is different with different digestive needs and abilities, so we always recommend introducing treats incrementally to see how they do.

Helps Support Dental Health:

The mechanical act of chewing on our tasty collagen sticks helps remove plaque and tartar from your dog’s teeth. This helps keep your dog’s teeth clean between brushing. And… dogs enjoy chewing on a collagen stick much more than they do getting their teeth brushed!

Collagen Comes in A Variety of Shapes and Sizes:

Dogs love variety, and Beef Collagen Chews provide just that. Available in a range of shapes, including Sticks, Braids, Rings, Braided Rings, Barbells and Springs, these all-natural dog treats offer different textures and chewing experiences. The variety of options keeps dogs engaged and entertained while promoting healthy dental hygiene by reducing plaque and tartar buildup. No matter your dog’s size, there is a Collagen Chew to fit their chewing needs!


Are Collagen & Rawhide the Same?

Customers often ask… What is the difference between traditional rawhide and collagen? Although both are hide products there are a few key differences:

  • Collagen is the third inner layer of skin, referred to as the corium. This layer is more elastic than the epidermis which is used in rawhide.
  • Collagen Sticks are highly digestible and come with nutritional benefits such as high protein, rich in glucosamine and chondroitin.
  • Traditionally Rawhide was often treated with harsh chemicals and additives whereas Redbarn’s Collagen Chews are never treated with harsh chemicals, are 100% natural and are free from grain, gluten, wheat, corn, and soy.

Beef collagen chews for dogs are a fantastic addition to your dog’s chew selection. With their high protein content, low-fat composition, easier digestion, and variety of shapes, these Collagen Chew treats offer a multitude of benefits for your dog's overall well-being. Treat your dog to the wonders of beef Collagen Chews and watch them enjoy both the taste and the benefits!

Always monitor your pet while rewarding with a chew and give in limited quantity if your pet is not used to this chew. Do not allow your pet to swallow large pieces and discard any pieces that could be swallowed by your pet, as pieces could cause choking, gastric upset, or blockage. Chewing a hard chew could damage a pet’s teeth. Recommended chew size is slightly larger than your pet’s mouth. Rewarding on upholstery or carpeting is not recommended. Always provide a fresh supply of drinking water for your pet.
