Dog treat market innovator S & M NuTec, L.L.C., a Kansas City, Missouri company and manufacturer of Greenies® Dog Treats, recently introduced three new dog treats. Hip Chips™, Second Wind Energy Snacks™, and Pnutz™ are a new line of treats for health conscience pet owners, and taste conscience pets.
Hip Chips dog and cat treats contain chicken, the number one source of protein, as well as glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate for joint health and mobility. Available in 140g pouches and small packets, dogs can choose from BBQ chicken, Garlic & Onion and Smokey Cheddar & Bacon. The cats’ variety is the popular Chicken Liver and is the first cat treat offered by the company.
Second Wind Energy Snacks are the first in a full line Second Wind products designed as a performance boost for dogs. This treat is low in fat, high in complex carbohydrates, electrolytes and antioxidants, and nutritionally complete and balanced. Second Wind Energy Snacks are available in 448g and 224g pouches, and 28 g packets.
Pnutz are a high protein, low carb treat designed for serious taste and accessibility. This veterinarian-approved dog treat contains Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids for healthy skin and coat. The amount of fatty acids are determined by the dog’s weight, so Pnutz are offered in Jumbo, Large, Regular, Petite and Teenie sizes in a 224 g pouch, or individually wrapped for portability.
The company that markets Smart Treats, beginning with the original Greenies, the world’s number 2 dog treats in terms of sales, continues to satisfy customers with the release of healthy new treats designed for dogs or cats health, as well as taste. S&M NuTec recently received the Seal of Acceptance from the Veterinarian Oral Health Council (VOHC).
Steve Hadley, S&M Nutec Vice President of International Sales, said, "We continue to provide innovative solutions that improve the life of pets and pet parents everywhere. As pet owners increasingly regard their pets as ‘extended family members’, treats with the functionality of health benefits, as well as a pleasing taste, are in demand."
