Seriously guys, please do some reading on the jerky treats that are not only making dogs ill, they are KILLING them. DO NOT purchase these, and Milo's kitchen is just one of them.

I don't feed a lot of treats other than little bites of fresh fruit or veggies, but when I do buy prepackaged treats I buy them at Petco because they have a slightly larger selection of better quality treats than other pet stores.

Both of mine love Fruitables. They like the crunchy ones in Pumpkin/Banana, and they have the Apple/Bacon soft ones...although the ziplock on them is horrible and they dried out pretty bad.

They also currently have Tillman's Treats (the soft ones) and absolutely love them! They have the Beef & Vegetable bag that is open right now, and a Lamb & Vegetable one that they haven't tried yet. I got them locally for $2.50 each on sale which is why I decided to try them.

I do only buy treats that are NOT made in China.

I give mine Fruitables, Sam Yams, Churpi chews, Bully sticks and freeze dried lamb Lung, liver and heart. I usually buy them from pet boutiques and I'm always really careful reading the labels. I give very small quantities and they dont get treats or chews everyday.

I bought some Dog Whisperer pizzle sticks. They are from USDA inspected beef and produced in the USA.

Ok, so Milo's brand out......
Now we're stuck here without any treats. Charlie won't eat anything else except of those chicken jerky ones.
Does anybody know any safe brand?
I have one pack of Dogswell (Happy Hips) with glucosamine & chondroitin for healthy joints.
It reads NO Antibiotics, NO Byproducts and No added hormones + Cage Free......
Are these safe?
Please let me know; I'm pretty desperate here....

The best prices so far and NOT MADE IN CHINA and NO SUGAR or BY PRODUCTS:

Wire Dog Crate, Exercise Pens, Rawhide Bones, Chicken Dog Treats, Jerky, Pig Ears & Pee Training Pads
e-mail: info@digitpet.com

Example: beefy munchies: at Petco: over $20 per bag (16 oz)
at digitpetproducts: less than 1/2 the price and even MORE discount if you order 5 bags or more, made in the USA by Artvar, 100% natural.

There is also a "refer a friend program" in which, if you refer a friend with his/her e-mail and your e-mail, you get an additional 10%.

They are located in California, so there is S+H (and of course tax), but still worth it. If you live close by, you can pick it up yoursel and save the S+H.

Check it out.

Ok, treats, it all depends on what you have available to you. Today I am going to get treats for the boys because I'm over my baking spurt for the moment. I'm going to get some sojo cookies cause they are tiny and they dogs like them. I am probably going to get some fromm treats too.

It's really a matter of what you have local to you. There are some pizzle sticks, and chew type things that are sold that are all 100% USA, made right in here Iowa, but they are sold at a local pet boutique (I know they are sold out of the state too just no idea where) but I have never seen them at petco or petsmart.

I like zukes treats too, they are kinda chewy and usually small. Jerky treats are not totally out of the question, you just have to read labels and make darn sure they aren't from China.

Thought of making your own jerky with a dehydrator? I don't feed jerky treats but if I did, I would probably go that route.

Editing to add you may want to google it but I do think Dogswell gets their jerky from China.
