I became interested in recipes for healthy dog treats after I read a pretty scary article on what is actually found in a lot of pet treats that are available today. I was a little worried about what I was feeding my dog and decided to take matters into my own hands. You know the old saying, “you are what you eat”, well I don’t think this only applies to people, I think it applies to pets too. If you feed your pet healthy dog food and dog treats they will be a much happier and healthier pet.
