Dog treats are a billion-dollar industry in this country. There are a multitude of types, brands and flavors, and are convenient to purchase from grocery and pet stores. However, there can be risks involved with commercial dog treats. Some are made with ingredients sourced from other countries like China with far less quality control. Dangerous contaminants and diseases such as salmonella, antibiotic residues and deadly melamine have found their way into treats, and there have been many recalls due to the safety issues.
While not all dog treats are bad for your dog, making them yourself can be a much better option to reward and show your love. Homemade dog treats might seem a daunting task. However, the do-it-yourself route is simple, inexpensive, and the treats will be healthier and full of nutrients. The best part of all, is they're safe.
