    Glad to say, those treats have NEVER made their way into our house!!! We usually give our Bully baby carrots. He also gets Authroity Chicken & Apple wraps once in a while as a "special" treat.

    I haven't heard of fruitables either, I'd love a little more info.
    Bocephus gets organic treats, not that he chews them - but at least I feel better knowing they are good for him.

    It comes from the love in my dog’s eyes.

    oh man. I feel awful! Milk bones are like crack to Lily. She can't get enough of them. She chooses them over every other treat we've gotten her. And those busy bones? OMG. It's like Christmas when they get those, they love them so much.

    Are there any chew bones with healthy ingredients and no toxins? Is rawhide ok? My mother-in-law bought her Nutri-Dent (green toothbrush) made with wheat starch, glycerin, powdered cellulose, natural flavor, and some vitamins. She just loved chewing on them.

    Our Buttercup also loves the Wellness WellBars with crunchy peanut butter & honey. I mostly give her tiny homemade treats of freshly ground flaxseed mixed with smooth natural peanut butter (no sugar or added oils). She LOVES these and they make it easy to give pills without arousing her suspicion. I make the mixture fresh every day or two and bring it to vet visits.

    Is there a link? My dad constantly gives the dogs milk bones (though I've told him not to) - I would love to share this article with him...

    Here is a link to some info on how FDA regulates pet food/snacks. Its best to inform yourself to make decisions concerning your pets food suppliers.

    Pet Food

    There always will be those shady manufacturers that do bad things, counterfeit foods, and manufacturing mistakes. If you look for bad things for almost any treat or food out there you will most likely find something.

    But, if it makes you feel better giving your pets the food you choose for them, then good for you and your dog. My apologies for the soapbox, I work for an animal health company, and there is a lot of information out there in this vast internet to wade through.

    Hi minibull, no rawhide is not okay for bullies, they are dangerous and they can choke on them. The Green Nutrition-Dent are something I would be leery about giving them as well, because bullies tend to not chew things and will often swallow the bones whole, which can cause choking and stomach problems. Also the treats from China that were killing dogs all contained Glycerin, which can cause Kidney Failure in dogs. It also contains a lot of artificial additives, and chemical ingredients that are not good for dogs. The Wellness bars are an excellent choice, as well as anything homemade with natural ingredients, because you control the ingredients, and you know what's in them. I also give my guys Benny Bullies which are just natural freeze dried liver and nothing else, and the Fruitables which are also all natural. My guys also get fresh strawberries, bananas, cut up apples, peanut butter, yogurt, and green beans, or just a piece of their own kibble as a treat.

    Fruitables

    * Nutritious pumpkin or sweet potato enriches these delicious dog treats

    * Crunchy treats boast amazing aroma and taste in under 9 calories per treat

    * Bite-size treats have NO soy, corn or wheat and nothing artificial

    Harvest-fresh pumpkin or sweet potato makes these dog treats brim with aroma, flavor, and nutrition - but not excess calories. Fruitables 100% natural dog treats are made with the super foods known for healthy beta carotene, plus other nutritious ingredients like blueberry, cranberry, apple, banana, or pecan. These low-calorie treats have oatmeal and pearled barley, but NO wheat, corn, or soy, so they are ideal for pets with those food sensitivities.
    Sweetened lightly with organic cane molasses, vanilla and cinnamon, Fruitables pack surprisingly rich flavor, but very few calories - less than 9 calories per treat. Plus, they contain NO artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. Flower-shaped, 1" treats are ideal for quick rewards or training. About 90 treats per 7 oz pkg. Made and sourced in the USA.
    Please specify flavor: Pumpkin & Cranberry, Pumpkin & Blueberry, Pumpkin & Apple, Pumpkin & Banana, Sweet Potato & Pecan, or NEW Apples & Bacon.
    If you like these, try our other Fruitables Dog Treats.
