Nylabone® Introduces Two Puppy Chews to Popular NutriDent® and Healthy Edibles® Lines
Nutritious Treats Specially Formulated for Dogs during First Stage of Life
February 11, 2008NEPTUNE CITY, NJ –
A trusted leader and innovator of pet care products for more than 50 years, Nylabone has specially formulated these nutritious chews to be gentle enough for a puppy’s delicate digestive system and soft enough for their “baby” teeth and sensitive gums. They are made entirely in the United States from wholesome ingredients, and contain no preservatives, no added sugar or salt. Equally as important, these highly digestible chews promote good chewing habits for years to come.
NutriDent puppy edibles come in two flavors — milk-protein fortified, and bacon and cheese — and in two sizes: small for puppies up to 15 pounds, available in six-count packs, and medium for puppies up to 30 pounds in four-count packs. Their 360-degree all-around brush shape helps to clean teeth, freshen breath and massage the gums.
Made from all-natural ingredients, Healthy Edibles’ two flavors for puppies are baby food-inspired — turkey and sweet potatoes, and lamb and apples. These chews are available in two sizes: petite for puppies up to 15 pounds in four-count packs and regular for puppies up to 30 pounds in packs of three.
Both NutriDent and Healthy Edibles for puppies have a suggested retail price of $7.99. For more information, call 800-631-2188 or visit www.nylabone.com.
