The Benefits of Home-Made Dog Food and Treats

I often get asked WHY DO YOU BAKE FOR YOUR DOGS AND WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS”….

Control and Nutrition
One of the benefits of making your own dog food and treats is the control over what goes into your dog’s food. You get to create food that is more aligned with their nutritional needs.

Cost and Availability
Another benefit is that it’s cheaper to prepare home-made dog food and treats, rather than purchasing in a can or package from the grocery, pet store or on-line. It’s likely, you will find you already have all or most of the ingredients you need to make healthy home-made dog food and treats in your pantry or refrigerator.

No Artificial flavorings and By-Products
Most of the commercial dog foods and treats contain added grain fillers, artificial flavorings specifically designed to tempt their taste buds, and/or animal by-products. Do you know what chicken or beef (most used) BY-PRODUCTS are? Hooves, feet, feathers, fur and fecal matter, (shock, horror) TO NAME ONLY A FEW.

Illness prevention and Cancer
With all the recalls on commercial dog food and treats, and reports of artificial ingredients being attributed to kidney and/or organ failure in pets, creating and making home-made dog food and treats is a much smarter choice. There are so many reports now that Cancer in dogs, is linked to chemicals and harmful additives in commercial dog food. Did you know 1 in 3 dogs will get Cancer in their life time?

Allergies
There are also cases where dogs have mild to severe allergic reactions to the ingredients in commercial dog food and treats too. Vets see and treat symptoms of allergic reactions from commercial food and treats, in our pets on a daily basis.

Healthy Choices
Their life is in your hands, you get to make the healthiest choices.
You get to choose the best nutritional needs for them and you get to choose the best ingredients.

It’s because of my love for them, I do my best for them.
