    I try to do better then that because I eat frozen pizza, pork rinds, and drink cheap beer, basically the the ingredients of Ol’Roy.

    I just give my dogs mini carrots.  They love them and there aren’t a lot of calories and I know what’s in them—carrots.  : )

     Yeah…”Constant recalls” too many damn recalls it’s pretty sad isn’t it?  I just completely agree…it isn’t worth it and it’s ridiculous…it’s too frequent!!

  • Spiritwalker

    Thank you for the info.

  • Bette

    Why do people buy this crap?! I don’t feed my dogs anything I myself would not eat.

  • Quest

    Sorry spelt that wrong, I am still half asleep, long night… Love you dogfoodadvisor

  • Quest

    Don’t buy treats make them. It’s very easy and the love you put into making them come from the heart and you can’t put a price tag on that… Your pet will be healthier and love you more and save you a vet bill and your dogs life. Thank you dogfoodadvisry, I love you. Happy holidays!!!

    I agree….it is not worth it to buy commercial made treats!  Not only costly… but the constant recalls! Make your own, It is easy.  There are many recipes on the internet. (weed thru and choose the healthy ones)  Not to bother rolling out dough… not to bother with cookie cutters..just pinch small pieces off of your dough and bake them to a crunch.  Also, fun and easy for children to do.  Your dogs don’t care what shape they eat just that they are tasty and of course healthy.
