Natural DogTreats

on Feb 26, 2015 @ 09:20 pm

I was wondering if anyone could suggest some natural dog treats that you've purchased or made in the past. I've started to make cookies and treats with wholesome ingredients like natural peanut butter, apples, pumpkin/zucchini, etc... on my spare time, however, I would love to know what products you've tried (or rather, your dog has tried), that has been purchased and have contained safe, natural ingredients.

I recently made the mistake of buying Pedigree's Marrobone treats at Costco  (I got influenced by the low price point and the bulk package). As I was about to feed the treat to my dog, I noticed something sticking out from it. They were coarse bristles (not sure if it was plastic or animal hair) that were stuck inside each treat. This was enough to vow to never again buy similar "processed" treats.

BTW, there's a class action suit against Purina's Beneful dog food where people are claiming their dogs were getting violently sick and even dying after eating this. Scary stuff! I no longer trust any pet food that comes from China or similar whereabouts and have been trying to buy food labeled "made in Canada/USA".

I would also love to know of any other suggestions on products to avoid feeding dogs, as well as your approved, natural options.

People need to be informed before spreading the Purina lawsuit around.
The dogs are dying because they put propylene glycol in their dry kibble. If you check your bag and it is not in there, you are fine.
Also, Canada's regulations on food safety are different than the US, hence why this lawsuit is American.
Spreading the info without being fully informed just creates hysteria.

Thanks for posting that about Purina I have been using their products among others for years I have always had healthy pets that lived long and healthy lives.

Whether or not the lawsuit is American or Canadian doesn't really make a difference in my books. If a company is willing to use that sort of ingredient in any of their products, regardless which country allows for it or not, doesn't speak very highly of them and I certainly won't take the risk of feeding it to my dog.
