In case you cannot see the warnings, they are pointed out here...
The consumer is cautioned to: "Remove decorations before giving to your pet."
Furthermore, "Wash hands with soap and water after handling. This product may stain. Use in a stain resistant area."
We ask you: Do you want to give your dog or anyone else's beloved pet an edible product in which if you are lucky enough to catch the small print on the back, warns you NOT to eat it??
You are cautioned to SUPERVISE: "Recommended size is larger than your pet's mouth."
Plus, you are advised to wash your hands with soap and water as it will stain. What about the pet's digestive system - does that stain red and green as well? Your carpets, couch, car - wherever your pet "enjoys" this treat - will remain decorated for Christmas saving you the effort in years to come!
Beware of dog treats like these. Make sure you know what you are giving to your pet.
Healthy dog treats will be decorated with healthy decorations that are meant to be eaten, like Fido's Frosting, which is designed specifically for dogs. It will not melt nor stain. It does not have to be removed before the dog enjoys the treat.
If the frosting is melting in the package, it is probably full of sugar and fat.
Be savvy and keep your pets safe.
