Furry Chews- a natural wormer and other benefits!

You might have seen them in the store. Rabbit, Lamb and even Cow ears with the fur still attached. Recently I even discovered some disgusting smelling cow hides with fur for my two boys.

But why should you get them? What are the benefits? Well there are quite a lot!

Helps with Digestion

As fur is undigestible, it basically brushes its way through the digestive tract and helps to clear away food residue which can build up over time. This build up of food residue can cause a sluggish digestive system, which can over time cause discomfort.

Cleaning the digestive tract aids your dog's body in absorbing most of the nutrients being ingested through the cell wall of the digestive tract. Clean digestive system = more nutrients absorbed.

Natural Protection against Worms

The 'brushing' action of the fur also acts as a natural protection against worms by brushing away worms and eggs in the digestive system. To achieve optimum protection, it’s advised to feed regularly (at least once a week) PLUS it helps negate the need for harsh worming tablets if you combine natural wormers such as these with a worm count test once a year.

Cleans Teeth

The fur also aids in cleaning teeth too as it rubs a little of the surface plaque off the gums and between the teeth

Healthy Stools

Fibre/fur is great for bulking up poo. To naturally express the anal glands (yuk but true), poo needs to be firm enough to press against the anal glands as it passes through.
