    Default GREENIES??

    Are those GREENIE treats OK? I looked them up but it just says "natural ingredients". Have a neighbor that tries to give one to Jackson every day, I just take it and tell her he will eat it later.
    Any thoughts??

    natural ingredients or natural flavor = some kind of chemicals, wheat flour, wheat gluten, glycerin, gelatin, oat fiber, water, lecithin, natural poultry flavor... A few years back it was published: Greenies, become lodged in a dog's esophagus or intestine and then some veterinarians say they don't break down. Also, I sure wouldn’t give anything that look green that has absolutely no mentioned anywhere where the colour green comes from. Just tell your neighbour he’s allergic to wheat as main ingredient is wheat.

    What you can do so Jackson likes his neighbour, at Costco they sell a bag of dry liver. Blue bag. It’s only that one ingredient. Here in Canada it’s like $10 but in the US is probably $8. I would buy her a bag so when she sees Jackson she can give him that treat instead. Also it might help her lose the greenies n buy something healthier for her dogs. Just a thought.

    I just tried it n works now. And those aren’t the ones I buy. Mind it’s a Made in Canada bag. Probably why. It’s long stripes of dry liver n you break the stripes yourself as they are like 5-7” long.
