This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Icelandic+™. The opinions and text are all mine.
Jeb is a chewer. He will destroy it all if left unsupervised. He’s eaten remotes, prized LEGOS construction, boxes, shoes, blankets and more. He is a crazy chewer. Like you can hear him chewing no matter where you are in the house. Rather than allow it to drive us bonkers, we seek chews that are strong enough to satisfy him, but not so hard that we risk his teeth.
Jeb’s latest chewing passion Icelandic dog treats; specifically, Icelandic+™ lamb horns.
Seriously? He loves them.
So do we, lamb horns soften as Jeb chews (all that drool happening as he engages in his favorite thing!).
We like them for Jeb because, well, he loves them, so he leaves our things alone, AND the Icelandic+™ lamb horns actually help brush his teeth! Imagine the thousands of small hair-like fibers that make up the bone, like a toothbrush of sorts, working to brush away tartar and plaque from your dog’s teeth as he chews. Fibers that brush the gum lines. That’s right, dental health. With Icelandic+ those chompers are going to be whiter and the gums healthier–and that means better breath!
Note: If your dog’s teeth are not regularly brushed, you may experience some gum bleeding with their first Horn. This is natural and is actually a benefit as the Horn’s fibers are “scrubbing” the gum line. With continued use and additional Horns, you will see a remarkable difference in the health of your dog’s gum line and whiter teeth. People who do not floss similarly experience gum bleeding when they first start and the bleeding stops when gum health improves from flossing, as will happen with your dog. Both you and your veterinarian will be pleased with the change in gum health and appearance of teeth over time.
There are so many things for humans to love about Icelandic+ lamb horns. Lamb horns are one of the oldest dog treats in the world. The Vikings gave their dogs lamb horns. Unfortunately, lamb horns were considered a by-product and had been discarded. Icelandic+ is changing that through a partnership with the Icelandic government, Icelandic+ is helping to ensure that as much of the lambs raised for food is used as possible. They use the lamb horn marrow that naturally comes out during the cleaning process to make vitamin, mineral and protein-packed treats.
I also love that Iceland is a country that does not permit crossbreeding. Lambs raised here are very similar to the ones that have been in the countryside dating back to 874. Lambs in Iceland are exclusively raised outside & free-range, never in barns or pens. It’s true free-range roaming, open spaces, natural grasses, and hydration from the mineral-rich Icelandic water.
Due to strict agricultural laws, lambs in Iceland are never given hormones as growth promoters or fed grain with antibiotics as an additive, making Icelandic lamb one of the cleanest and healthiest meats in the world.
Icelandic+ also naturally process the horns. The brand only uses pure, natural Icelandic ingredients in all their chews and treats. The lamb horns are cleaned, boiled and then air dried.
100-percent edible, ethically sourced, all-natural dog chew.
It doesn’t stop here, Icelandic+ also has an in-house physiologist and nutritionist to ensure their treats are healthy, safe and nutritionally appropriate. They meet strict, FDA, USDA, EU and MAST regulations and standards to ensure the freshness, purity, and integrity. Icelandic+ is committed to producing healthy dog treats that meet their specific digestive, physiological, metabolic, and nutritional requirements.
The lamb horns come in specific digestive sizing so there’s one perfect for all sized dogs. Just remember, for your pet’s safety: As with all dog chews, take the horn away if it becomes small enough to swallow. Always supervise while your dog is enjoying an Icelandic+ Lamb Horn
Whether you choose the Icelandic+ lamb horns or one of their varieties of natural fish treats, made with only FISH, caught daily from the cold Icelandic waters, never frozen, and full of Omega-3 fatty acids for a healthy skin and coat.(available in four varieties: Capelin whole fish, Cod Fish Chips, Cod Fish Skin Rolls and Redfish Skin Rolls), you’re giving your dog a treat you can have peace of mind in giving.
Give your dog the gift of PURE. NATURAL. UNSPOILED. Icelandic+ chews and treats.
