Brr…we have finally had our first freeze! Just when it seemed that cold weather would never arrive, we’re now pulling out sweaters and dog coats for those early morning dog walks.
While I love that cool weather means an end to our mosquitoes, great weather for car trips with the dogs, and the approach of the holiday season, I know that it also brings something less pleasurable: dry skin.
Just as we suffer from dry skin during the winter months, so do our dogs. Irie is especially prone to dry skin so I was so excited to learn about the new nourish™ line from Isle of Dogs. Combining ingredients for inner wellness and outer beauty and made in the USA, this line features Dental Chews and Supplements for common challenges: joint health, good breath (because we all want good breath for holiday company, right?), the need for calming dogs (helping with everything from holiday guests to New Year’s Eve fireworks), and skin + coat health.
Irie had the chance to test the skin + coat line, starting with the Dental Chews:
You’ll see that these treats look a little different than traditional dental chews:
The chews feature two layers, an exterior, grooved layer made with triple-action Pecodent™, a proprietary blend of finely ground pecan shell, kelp and turmeric extract. This portion of the chew provides natural fiber, helps clean teeth and freshens breath. Inside the chew, the inner layer provides ingredients to support hip and joint health, fresh breath, or–and in Irie’s chews–skin and coat health.
I paired the Dental Chews with Isle of Dogs’ Daily Fix – Skin + Coat Formula. Complete with omegas 3 & 6, probiotics, and biotin, this easy-to-use supplement is dispensed in a no-mess pump bottle. For a dog Irie’s size, she gets six pumps per day to help her maintain a healthy skin and coat–and digestive health–this winter.
The supplement utilizes a proprietary microencapsulation delivery system to provide a higher absorption rate–so your dog’s body makes faster and better use of these nutrients. And it’s all delivered with the yummy taste of fish oil.
Along with the Skin + Coat Formula that Irie enjoyed, Daily Fix is available in a Calming Formula featuring valerian root and tryptophan (which we’re all familiar with for that contented, sleepy feeling we get after a turkey meal) and Joint Formula with glucosamine + chondroitin.
The nourish line also features Jerky Bites, bite-sized treats sourced in New Zealand and made with humanely-raised meats. The treats (perfect for training treats) are made in small batches, each gently air-dried at low temperatures to naturally preserve the meat without using artificial preservatives. High in protein and truly grain-free, they are made with all-natural ingredients, featuring either pasture-raised lamb or grass-fed beef.
Now we’d like YOU to have the chance to win your dog a set of nourish dental chews, supplements and treats to prepare for this holiday season! One lucky reader will win a bag of dental chews and treats and a bottle of Daily Fix of her choice!
