Our new Functional Jerky range is natural, with no wheat, soy or artificial additives. Each variety contains a unique blend of active ingredients to address specific canine health concerns, such as joint support, immune boosting, digestive health, anxiety relief, and skin and coat health. They are the pawfect choice for dog owners who want to give their pups a treat that not only tastes great but also promotes overall wellbeing.

Your furry friend can enjoy our wonderful Functional Jerky as a whole chew, or you can break it down into smaller pieces to use as training treats.
