Reading the above paragraph, you might be all set to head down to the fruit shop and grab some fresh papaya right off the shelf. Well, just hold on one minute. Imagine that you are your dog (I’d love to be a dog). And you are feeling pretty ill, your stomach is playing up. You have gas, bloating and just general stomach issues. And then your owner dumps a big old pile of papaya into your bowl, and wants you to eat it up. That’s not exactly an appetising idea. In fact, eating all of that papaya might make matters worse. The truth is that to get a decent amount of papain from the natural fruit, you would have to eat a big old bowl of the stuff. Plus, it would have to be unripe, green papaya to get the full benefits. Not even a hungry dog would touch that. The reason these chews are so good is that they contain a high extract of papain, but come in flavours that dogs will enjoy, like chicken. Plus, giving a dog a chew after a heavy meal is something that many people do anyway, so it may as well have the benefits of papaya in there.
