We use oat flour and brown rice flour in our treats. Besides being wheat-free, they are also gluten-free. No wheat and gluten-free, both wonderful for dogs with allergies, which is more common than not these days.
Our cakes are made with bananas, a rich source of potassium, fiber, vitamin B6 and C. We use pumpkin in our biscuits, and apple in our shelf stable cakes, cake pops, cake bites, and brownies, a fabulous source of fiber and great digestive aid. We use coconut on top of our decorated treats (instead of artificial sprinkles), a wonderful fruit with antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties excellent for so many symptoms.
We use all natural peanut butter, made locally. That means just 100% ground peanuts, that's it! A rich source of protein, and it's just so tasty to humans and dogs alike.
We have switched to a non-melting yogurt coating that is also sugar-free. Now, we know maltodextrin is a form of sugar, just not from sugarcane, but this product is top of the line and the healthiest product we could source for our treats and we are very happy to be working with it.
Ingredients: yogurt powder, non fat milk powder, modified tapioca starch, egg whites, tapioca maltodextrin, apple pectin, granulated rice and titanium dioxide.
Garlic has been used for decades by holistic vets and included in lots of dog treats and foods for all the positive benefits of garlic, which include: aids as a natural insect repellant, one of the world's most powerful antioxidant foods, aids in digestion, highly palatable and enticing flavor and stimulates immunity – antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, & anti-parasitic. It was hastily added to the toxic substances list by the ASPCA. Though long used as a safe medicinal plant in pets, garlic has come under scrutiny for the role one of its compounds may play in a condition affecting the red blood cells in some pets. Please know that the amount of garlic in our recipes is a tsp. for 10 lbs of dough, therefore it’s used at levels known to be incredibly safe for our dogs. Garlic would need to be ingested at extremely high levels for an extended period of time to have a detrimental effect on a companion animal's health. We love dogs, and research throughly every ingredient we use in our products, we feel strongly in the positive effects of garlic so we consciously chose to keep it in our products. There is a lot of research and studies detailing the toxicity levels and positive effects of garlic listed on this site, if you’re interested in reading further, click here.
