PB dog and tuna cat treats
About 65 percent of U.S. households have a pet. It’s important to take care of your pets’ health, just as they help us humans with our health. Having an animal around can improve your cholesterol and lower your blood pressure—two factors that reduce your risk for heart disease and heart attacks.
Do-it-yourself treats provide dogs with a safe, healthy alternative to store-bought food. When you make dog treats from scratch, you can select the healthiest ingredients possible. Dogs can develop intolerance and allergies to certain foods at any time and often have problems with more than one ingredient, which homemade treats can help prevent.
