What Are Beef Collagen Sticks For Dogs?
Collagen sticks for dogs are an irresistible chew that was developed as an alternative to rawhide chews. Like rawhide chews, collagen sticks are long-lasting and suited for medium and heavy chewers.
These tasty treats are made from the inner layer of cow skin, called the corium, which contains a lot of collagen. The elasticity of the corium makes it a safe and amenable substance to chew, and it’s easy for dogs to digest. As dogs chew, they ingest the nutrients found in the corium, which offer various benefits that aren’t found in rawhide chews.
Benefits of Collagen Sticks
In addition to providing mental stimulation and entertainment, collagen sticks also offer physiological benefits for your dog. As your dog chews, the collagen breaks down into peptides and amino acids that help:
- Reduce inflammation
- Increase mobility and flexibility
- Improve bone strength
- Support skin health and moisture retention
- Make your dog’s coat shiny
