The Scoop

Benefits of Bison Treats for Dogs

Sustainable, Single-Ingredient Treats from West Paw

Healthy, natural dog treats made from only one ingredient. Sounds too good to be true, right? But West Paw has cracked the code on air-dried bison dog treats. You see, when you air-dry meat you keep all of the nutrients and the flavor. Not only that but all of the Bison meat has been sourced in the United States and Canada making the Bison used in our treats a short trip from grassy plain to your dog’s lips.


Why Bison Heart and Bison Liver?

West Paw loves pets, people, and the planet and to stand by our values. We only use parts of the Bison that are not typically consumed as part of the average American’s diet; therefore not taking away food from the human food supply.





Why Bison is the Best

Dog treats are great to have around for a multitude of reasons including daily training sessions, or stuffing into an enrichment toy like the Toppl®, Tux®, Tizzi®, or Rumbl® to give your pup a healthy brain game challenge. But no matter when you treat your pup it is important to choose healthy treats.

Calories Do Count!

Did you know that treats should only make up about 10% of a dog’s food intake during the day? The West Paw Bison products are USA dog treats made with sustainably sourced ingredients. They are healthy, nutritious, eco-friendly, and perfect for dog owners who wish to make those 10% count.


How Bison Protein Can Boost Your Dog’s Health

Bison meat has become a popular protein for dogs, not only in the United States but worldwide. It is considered an excellent alternative to beef due to its high protein content, B vitamins like B2 and niacin, and minerals like selenium known to have anti-inflammatory effects and reduce oxidative stress. 

Bison meat is also full of healthy fats such as conjugated linoleic acid and omega-3 fatty acids—known for being highly beneficial for a dog’s skin, coat, and cognitive functions. In addition, its high iron and zinc content aids in boosting your pet’s immune system.

Everything our dogs eat needs to be converted into usable energy to keep our fur friends going throughout the day. The vitamins in Bison meat products are ideal for boosting a dog’s metabolic functions.

Bison is leaner than other protein sources (due to its relatively low saturated fat content) while simultaneously being one of the most protein-rich meats. The process used to air-dry the West Paw Bison Heart and Bison Lung treats allows for most of the naturally occurring nutrients to be preserved to give your dog the full nutritional benefits of these free-ranging giants. 





Pet Health and Environmental Awareness

Sourced and Made in America are more than buzz words these days. They mean something. Bison are native to North America, and since they are free-range, they also require less human interference, and use less resources compared to other protein sources such as cattle. And US-sourced ingredients require less transportation, reducing the carbon footprint associated with the pet food industry.   


4 Reminders for a Healthy Dog and Sustainable Pet Ownership

  • Bison meat contains high levels of B6, B12, and Vitamin D.

  • American-sourced ingredients help reduce the carbon footprint.

  • Meat and organs from free-range Bison, free from antibiotics and hormones.

  • Packed with calcium, omega-3 fatty acids, and potassium.

  • We use parts of Bison that are not typically consumed as part of the average American’s diet; therefore not taking away from human food sources
