Your Questions Answered
What’s different about your snacks? +
Huxley Hound snacks differ to other treats because they contain purely dehydrated organic vegetables – nothing else. Our process makes sure your dog can get to the concentrated vegetable nutrition that they cannot get to from raw vegetables. The science bit … dogs are unlike humans in that they cannot break down the cellulose in plant matter that holds all of the nutrition. By gently dehydrating the vegetables, the structure changes so that the vitamins and minerals are presented in a way that dogs can digest them.
What are the nutritional benefits of dehydrated snacks? +
All of our products are naturally high in key vitamins and minerals that dogs need in a balanced diet. The treats are super chewy and super tasty! They are so nice in fact we eat them ourselves – just don’t tell the dogs! Dogs of all shapes and sizes can enjoy our treats – just tear them into smaller pieces for smaller dogs. The treats can be given to dogs on all diets – wet, dry and raw diets. However, we do not advise our treats for puppies under six months old.
Why organic and traceable? +
The process of dehydrating concentrates the vegetables. Therefore, if the vegetables are not organic, any unwanted chemicals and pesticides will also be concentrated. We can trace our vegetables back to the time of harvest – this means that we can be confident we know exactly where they came from and that all the goodness is preserved.
