With a farm smack dab in the middle of cherry country, we had heard for years about how tart cherries help to maintain healthy hips and joints
Leland, MI (PRWEB) June 25, 2008
Overby Farm, who brought us Hip Bones™ The Original Cherry Dog Treat™, today announced the introduction of their newest product, Hip Bones, Jr. - For The Small and Mighty. Both sizes contain a proprietary formulation featuring tart cherry concentrate, ground flax seed, ginger, cinnamon, and added calcium in an all natural recipe supporting healthy hips, bones, and joints.
It's The Cherries!
Numerous scientists and researchers have confirmed that tart cherries are loaded with naturally occurring compounds that help maintain health. Overby Farm has worked closely with university experts and practicing veterinarians in capturing these healthy benefits for companion animals. Research at Michigan State University's Bioactive Natural Products and Phytoceuticals Laboratory identified the presence of natural pain relieving, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds in cherries. These findings led to several patents and to Overby Farm's exclusive licensing relationship with Michigan State University.

In 2005, Michigan-based Overby Farm introduced Hip Bones™ ~The Original Cherry Dog Treat™, an all-natural, baked functional treat for the active canine.
"With a farm smack dab in the middle of cherry country, we had heard for years about how tart cherries help to maintain healthy hips and joints", says Carol Jones Adams, co-owner of Overby Farm and co-creator of Hip Bones.
Hip Bones' creators knew that more and more health-conscious consumers are choosing natural and functional foods to support healthy lifestyles. Not surprisingly, many of those health-conscious consumers are choosing natural and functional foods for their pets.
