    DefaultBird cookies as dog treat?

    Hello everyone! I haven't posted in a pretty long time. I hope everyone is doing well!

    I was wondering if it would seriously harm my dog to let him have these treats that our bird has rejected? We do usually give him the treats made specifically for dogs and I might give a try at doing home made treats. If there is nothing toxic to dogs in these treats though, I'd like for them to be consumed by a living creature rather than the trash can!

    Things have been busy but relatively uneventful here. We are getting things sorted out with my daughter's vision problems so there have been lots of Doctor appointments to go to. My daughter has also been working on basic training with Chief. They both love it!! I am taking a break from Vet Tech school and am volunteering at one of the local animal shelters twice a week medicating animals and am also job hunting.

    Thank you for any information about the treats!
    Blessings from Cara and Chief!

    I wouldn't give them to my dogs based on the ingredients. Does the animal shelter you volunteer at have birds? Maybe you can donate them.

    They don't take already opened packages.
    I may be able to break the treats into smaller pieces and mix them in with my bird's regular food.
    Why, exactly, wouldn't you feed them to your dogs? I'm just curious.
    Thanks.
    Blessings from Cara and Chief!

    I don't feed my dogs things that are meant for another species and I wouldn't recommend treats where the first few ingredients are junk like corn, soybean meal and wheat.

    From the website you posted, these are the ingredients:

    Ground corn, Sweet potatoes, Soybean meal, Ground wheat, Wheat germ meal, Sucrose, Vegetable oil, Titanium dioxide, Calcium carbonate, Dicalcium phosphate, Monoglycerides, Iodized salt, DL-Methionine, Choline chloride, Artificial celery flavor, L-ascorbyl-2-polyphosphate (source of Vitamin C), Citric acid, Natural mixed tocopherols, Rosemary extract, Manganous oxide, Zinc oxide, Copper sulfate, Calcium iodate, Sodium selenite, Vitamin A supplement, Vitamin D3 supplement, Vitamin E supplement, Vitamin K supplement, Niacin, Calcium pantothenate, Pyridoxine hydrochloride, Thiamine, Riboflavin, Folic acid, Biotin, Vitamin B12 supplement
