Are those dog treats really vegan?
A quick search of the world’s favourite search engine will throw up literally hundreds and hundreds of vegan dog treats for sale.
But take a close look at them. What true vegan worth his rolled oats is going to trust a vegan dog treat that’s chock-a-block with synthetic ingredients and highly-processed in a factory on the other side of the world? A factory that’s probably also making dozens of other, vegan and non-vegan products for dogs, cats, humans and probably others beside?
If you’re a vegan, what you put into your mouth is important to you. Why should what you put into your dog’s mouth be any less important?
Take a look at the ingredients in some of those commercial so-called vegan dog treats. Potato starch, corn starch, strawberry (flavour), peanut butter (flavour), vegetable glycerine.
In other words, they don’t contain peanut butter or strawberries, but highly-processed flavourings left over after the good stuff has been used in other products.
Given that, how do you truly know what’s in your dog’s treats? Would you eat those yourself? Because you should be able to eat them it they’re a truly vegan product and they’re made with human-grade ingredients!
Homemade vegan dog treats
One of the many great things about vegan dog treats is that you should be able eat them yourself. And you definitely can when you make your own dog treats with my Bake & Treat dog treat baking mixes.
Why? Because you know exactly what ingredients have gone into making them. You know there are no hidden nasties because you made them.
So you’re baking treats for your dog and fancy a wee taste yourself? Why not? Why bake two lots of cookies when you can kill two birds with one stone as it were.
My Fresh Breath Bone biscuits are the perfect example of what I like to call my share-and-share alike biscuits. They are just so tasty you may well find yourself reluctant to share them with your best friend!
So keep on baking your vegan dog treats. And if you would like more plant-based treats for your dog, do please let me know. I might just be working on the very thing you’re looking for!
