Safe & Healthy -- Pork Chomps Rawhide Free Chews - {GIVEAWAY CLOSED}


My dog Lucie is so intelligent! She's a border collie/labrador mix and has the greatest attributes from both breeds - she is so smart and has a sweet disposition. She loves to play frisbee, play tag with my son (aka herding the funny-looking-hairless-puppy to her…LOL!) and is very healthy for a 9 year old dog.



Lucie has a vocabulary of probably over 100 known words and was super easy to train. She can also sniff out food or dog treats from a mile away! So when I received a box of Pork Chomps Premium 100% Rawhide-Free dog chews to try out - she was the one who alerted me that the box was on the porch! She kept standing by the front door, pacing and sniffing and came to "tell me" something was on the porch.  I went and low and behold - there was our box from the folks at Pork Chomps!  I brought it inside and opened it while Lucie sniffed at the box impatiently. Once I opened it up, she quickly rooted through the box of assorted goodies and selected her first treat!





Pork Chomps are rawhide-free, vet approved and are the healthiest, safest dog chews available. Since they are rawhide free, this makes them much easier and faster for dogs to digest. They are made from pork skin rather than tasteless and hard to digest beef rawhide. Pork Chomps are made from natural, dye-free ingredients which I feel a lot better about giving my dog. They have natural flavors and natural ingredients like bacon, sweet potato, peanut butter and duck. Yummy for dogs and healthy! One thing I didn't know is that Scott Pet, the company that makes Pork Chomps has been around since 1975! I am so glad to know that this company is so dedicated to making healthy, safe treats for dogs. They have a list of retail stores on their website - so you can find them at a store near you!



We actually had a "Rawhide Incident" with Lucie last spring.  She was given a rawhide bone as a treat for her birthday, and after eating the entire large chewy bone we noticed over the next 2 days she really wasn't eating or drinking. She wasn't eliminating as usual either.  After a couple days, she started eating again but quickly vomited up her food and water. This worried me and we took her to the vet and our vet found that she actually had a blockage from the rawhide chew.  The vet kept her overnight and had to remove the chewy from inside Lucie. The cheap $3 chewy bone quickly became a very frightening experience for our family, painful for our beloved dog and cost $500 to remove from her intestines. That's when we decided NO MORE RAWHIDE!  But I didn't learn about Pork Chomps until recently. After reading their website and reviews from other buyers - I was convinced that this product would be safe for my best friend.

Lucie first tried the Sweet Potato Wrapped Twistz chew treats, and the Bacon Flavor Twists next. She seemed to really enjoy gnawing and eating them. I noticed she seemed much calmer after eating the Pork Chomps - probably from getting that good oral-motor/chewing sensation that dogs crave so much.  Pork Chomps are totally odor free and stain free, so there was no mess afterward or stinky smell like some dog treats leave behind. I like that because I am easily put off by strong smells.

The Pork Chomps Premium varieties available are:
  • Twistz & Rollz
  • Knotz & Earz
  • Crunchy Bones
  • Drumsticks
  • Chipz
And the Traditional Line of Pork Chomps Products include:
  • Twistz & Rollz
  • Knotz & Earz
  • Chipz & Stripz
  • Crunchy Bones
  • Other items - like Pressed Bones, Bagelz and Ribz
The products are healthy, and safe enough for daily consumption.  They will make great stocking stuffers for Lucie (yes, we give our dog a christmas stocking!), birthdays, and anytime treats. I think your dog would love them too!

Since I have two different size dogs, I think the Pork Chomps would be best. They can both eat them.

I learned that A daily offering of Pork Chomps was also found by a recent university study to reduce healthy dogs’ cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
