    DefaultShocking!!

    ..and I thought milk bones were safe! And Purina with all that chemical in their products!? This site has A LOT of shocking information. I'm not sure whether to believe it or not..

    If dogs do not go to heaven, then I prefer to follow them where they go.

    As with any dog product... just because it is for sale, does not mean it is a good/safe product -- no matter whose name is behind it. That is why it is important to start by reading labels -- I quickly reshelved the box of Milk Bones as soon as I read the label, Diesel has never had one. Next google the product, the manufacturer, consider multiple reports/sites in your research, and do your best to find actual studies done by universities or the like rather than someone's opinion on a blog.

    Then google some of the foods you eat -- it's shocking what's in our food too.

    Exactly why I won't give my guys much in the way of store bought treats, they occassionally get bully sticks. Other than that they get fruits, vegetables and dehydrated, home made jerky-PERIOD!

    Hijack! Tammy, you have an actual dehydrator machine, right? Do you find you make just dog treats or do you use if for you too... if so what kind of stuff? Do you find it worth the investment?

    I bought it for the dogs initially when all the nonsense with dehydrated chicken, duck, etc from China started. I also dehydrate fruit for them and us. I haven't used it for anything else yet but iot was definitely worth buying. I would do it again in a heart beat and highly recommend it!

    I'm interested in a dehydration machine too. I'll do a search for it and what food can I use in there.

    I have a dehydrated, but prefer a low oven for liver treats. Makes more and doesn't take as long. Only treats I would buy are Ziwipeak, but they are expensive so make my own.
    The web is full of reciepes for dog treats.

    Apples and kiwifruit are yummy dried. Mushrooms are great too.

    We are lucky. We have a company in Portland Oregon that makes dog biscuits that are all natural and healthy. Beggar Dog Biscuits. No soy or gross stuff. I looked for online ordering and don't see any. I buy them for Sophie and she loves them. Our vet also gets some organic ones, and Sophie loves them at the vet, but doesn't like them outside the vet's office. I think the biscuit treat is to her like the stickers kids get at their pedatrician's office....she thinks its her "good girl" prize.

    Mine don't like bananas dehydrated, it is the ONLY food I have found that Maxx will not eat! They are awfully sweet so maybe that is it...
