Heart Healthy Ingredients

It's easy to love our dogs. Finding unusual ingredients with which to bake homemade dog treats, can be challenging.

We've tried to make that part easier too by sourcing some hearth healthy ingredients for your dog treats:

Fish Oil - You can put this directly on your dogs food or bake it into homemade dog cookies.

Green Tripe - The devotion to our pets knows no bounds. Baking with green tripe is smelly, but worth the effort for your dogs health.

Ground Flax - This is becoming easier to find in local markets, but sometimes you can get a great deal by buying in bulk for your dog treats and for an addition to your own healthy meals.

Try at least one of the above ingredients for a happier, healthier best friend.
