Safe Dog Treats

Make sure you only give safe dog treats and safe dog food products to your pets.
With the recent news stories about dogs dying after eating dog jerky treats made in China and other issues with food borne illnesses, we thought it was important to remind you of some basic safety tips you should consider when purchasing products to be fed to dogs.

1) Look for products made from ingredients sourced only from the USA. 

2) Buy all natural or organic when possible. 

3) Although human grade ingredients are not required for pets, this type of product provides an extra level of assurance that the ingredients are safe for your dog. 

4) The safest and best products will be manufactured and packaged in an FDA approved and inspected facility. 

5) Legitimate products will have a complete ingredients list, a proper guaranteed analysis statement, and a bar code on the package. If a product is missing any of these, beware. 

6) Legitimate and legal products are licensed in the state from where they are sold. 

Unfortunately, there is frequent mislabeling (intentional or not) on many pet products. If you are unsure about a product, just check for these guidelines and be sure to ask questions. 

Fido's Frosting and K9Cakery made products meet all of these strict standards. 

All of the folks at K9Cakery wish you happy and safe baking!
