November 2012 EDITORIAL/OPINION
Over this Summer and continuing into the Fall, there have been a rash of Pet Food Recalls. Chicken Jerky Treats from China, Peanut Butter, Brands carried at large retailers, and other brands using questionable ingredients in their food. We love our pets and want to feed them the best we can afford. But you must read labels.
This doesn’t just apply to owners with pets with special needs or restrictions —————> this goes for all of us. Fillers, gluten, preservatives, can be in your pets food and doing them no good, maybe even harming them.
AMTCTD Blog is not written by a vet or canine nutritionist; no just a concerned “paw parent” who wants to make sure my pet is getting good, healthy, and nutritional food. Yes, I actually make some treats, food, and “ice cream” for my dog. I work from home, I have the time, but not a lot of money so it makes sense for me. We are not suggesting that works for everybody. We all lead busy lives and feeding our pet is something we do as a matter of course. But remember, when you do put food in that bowl or dish – your pet is depending on you that what you “serve” will do them good and not harm. Read, educate yourself, and stay informed. The news, as well as Facebook, Twitter, and many Pet Blogs report about Pet Food Recalls on a regular basis. Keep your pup happy, by knowing what’s not good for them. They will love you all the more for it.
I bought Chazz a new treat from Zukes. It’s called the Tasty Greens Blend and it is a combination of hi energy, anti oxidant, vegetable based flavors. It took him a minute to get used to it, but now we are using it in place of his regular training treats..and he seems fine with them!
Chazz eats other of the training treats line of flavors from Zukes, including Chicken, Salmon. Yum yum those treats make him happy!
I have chosen to feed Chazz a combination of store bought dog food as well as things I prepare for him.
I especially like making treats for him. Peanut Butter, shredded cheese, yogurt, oats, maple syrup, and mint are some of the ingredients I use in preparing his current favorites.
