Our No-Hide® Chews Are Bananas!

Earth Animal’s No-Hide Chews use bananas to aid digestion and supplement a dog’s nutrition.

You already know that Earth Animal’s No-Hide® Chews are your dog’s favorite original super healthy, long-lasting, and mind-blowingly tasty alternative to traditional rawhide chews. Not only do they induce lots and lots of drool, but they are also made with the cleanest ingredients on the market. No-Hides are made with just 6 simple ingredients and one sustainably sourced protein ingredient. These are ingredients you can pronounce and responsibly sourced ingredients you would eat yourself.

Made With Bananas

One of the clean ingredients that make up our wildly popular treats is bananas, a healthy ingredient with an important purpose. The Ecuadorian bananas in these rawhide-free chews are ground up into powder which acts as a disintegrant that aids in the breakdown of the material in the GI tract. That supports enhanced absorption, thereby aiding in your dog’s digestion.

Health Benefits of Bananas

Many of the health benefits of bananas for your dog are the same as the benefits for humans. Bananas are a great source of potassium, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin C.

Potassium supports your dog’s nerve and muscle function, Vitamin B6 is great for the brain, and it helps regulate blood pressure. Vitamin C is an antioxidant and supports the immune system.

Additionally, bananas have magnesium which is an essential mineral for keeping your dog’s nerves, muscles, and heart healthy. It also supports immune system health and regulates glucose. Finally, bananas also have a lot of fiber which supports a healthy digestive system and helps maintain a healthy weight.

In general, bananas support healthy blood pressure, help maintain muscles, strengthen your dog’s bones, and promote healthy growth in puppies. They are also great for the immune and digestive systems.
