Peppy Pooch Sees Fantastic Response To Highly Nutritious Venison Sticks For Dogs

Phunkee Monkee LLC, a Pittsburgh, PA based company today announced it has seen a fantastic response to the launch of their Peppy Pooch brand of Venison Sausage Sticks. “We listened closely to our customers who requested a softer treat which could easily be broken into smaller pieces. The Venison Sticks are easy to break up and give as treats or training rewards” said a company spokesperson.

“Our Venison Sausage Sticks are perfect for dogs of any size and in tests we have found them to be irresistible! We are not surprised that they are proving to be so popular. Dogs just seem to go crazy for the taste although most people probably don’t realize just how healthy the venison is” the spokesperson continued.

When it comes to meats, deer meet is said to be high in nutritional value. That is to say that when compared to beef, pork, and chicken it is a superior source of nutrition in terms of macronutrient composition (protein, carbohydrate, fat), iron, and B vitamins, while being relatively low in calories.

Venison is a rich source of vitamin B12 which is essential for numerous processes within the body, prime among them being the normal functions of the brain, the nervous system and blood formation. The B6 vitamin in venison helps in the conversion of carbohydrates, a function that is essential for a sustained release of blood sugar in the body. A dogs body needs vitamin B6 for more than 100 enzyme reactions involved in metabolism. Vitamin B6 is also involved in brain development during pregnancy and infancy as well as immune function.

Additionally, venison is an excellent source of polyunsaturated (good) fats which are normally found in nuts and fish while rarely being found in meat such as beef and pork.

The company’s passion is to provide dog owners with the best, 100% all natural, products made from only the highest quality ingredients. These healthy treats reflect the company’s commitment to delivering great tasting snacks to everyone’s furry friends which their owners can trust and the dogs will love.

Venison is a very lean meat and Peppy Pooch Venison Sausage Sticks provide a good source of high quality lean protein with no additives, hormones or other chemicals. The Sticks are an alternative for owners looking to provide their dogs with a delicious yet nutritious treat either as a reward, or just because they deserve it!

As more people are making the decision to eat healthily and to question the quality of their own food, the demand for high quality and all natural treats for their pets has also been increasing.   

It appears this trend is set to continue as more evidence emerges linking a lack of wholesome ingredients in unhealthy diets to longer term health issues.

Everyone wants their pets to live a long, healthy and happy life and avoiding highly processed foods is a step in the right direction.

Phunkee Monkee is committed to bringing more high quality, all natural products to its customers over the coming months. The Peppy Pooch brand is available on line at
