As many of you dog owners have heard over the last few weeks, many dog treats have been recalled because dogs are getting really sick and many have died. The reason, those dog treats are manufactured in CHINA!!
I’m not one to tell you what to buy or what not, nor do I want to bash one company over another. However I’m here to tell you first hand that 18 months ago I would have never looked into where my dog treats are from, could they be harmful to my babies. Till that one day in January 2012, my baby Charlie was a playful pup, loved his treats just like any other dog; I gave him his all time favorite chicken jerky treat and the very next day I was about to lose my baby. YES!! I have firsthand experience with treats that were contaminated and from China; little did I know it at that time. I watched my baby for a day thinking he may just not feel well; the second day it got worse and I made an appointment with our vet. At that time he was peeing blood and not moving much at all. We had no idea what happened, nor why he within minutes after eating his treat got sick. Never in my right mind did I think his treats are the cause. His kidneys started to fail and our Vets quick action in giving him blood transfusion, high does medications and other treatments, without even knowing what he was treating helped save Charlie’s life.
We battled for 14 months with medication, Dr. visit, trips for blood checks and many more things on a daily basis; he is finally now 18+ months later in remission. His health took a toll, he aged much quicker, he isn’t the happy jolly baby we once had, but we are thankful that we still have him and can spend many more days with him. His prognosis after we started treatment was 50/50 and he was one of the lucky ones. My checking account on the other hand… well.. let’s just say the 100% Made in the USA treats are MUCH MUCH cheaper then vet bills.
Ever since I learned that the dog treats were the culprit of almost killing my baby I started to read labels, check all the treats that come in the house and I’m very careful with what treats my babies get.
I only buy 100% US made and manufactured treats, they aren’t easy to find nor cheap, but trust me a bag of $15 dog treats vs. $2500+ in vet bills is worth every penny to me! I recently found a company that now is close to my heart Loving Pets Corporation and their products and commitment to keeping our pets healthy is like non other. I even go out of my way to find their products.
Loving Pets has lots of wonderful products that are made in the USA and testing is done before the product hits the shelf and all test results are posted for everyone to see. I love their commitment and producing healthy products for our pets.
I’m very cautious in giving any new treats to my babies and read all the labels; the “It’s Purely Natural” treats are a favorite in our home right now. These treats are made 100% in the USA, simple ingredients that are listed on the packaging that EVERYONE can identify and read; the Pure Beef Jerky Bars for example have NO Additives, No By products and no fillers and the only ingredient is “BEEF”… nothing else; The Beef Jerky Bone Shaped Treats have Beef and Brown Rice… Nothing else!! Why would you need more?
All the It’s Purely Natural treats are 100% natural Dog treats that are Glycerin Free, Soy Free, Grain Free, Gluten Free and Wheat Free making it a perfect choice for your little fur babies and keeping me at ease knowing I give treats that are healthy.
Our pups loved the It’s Purely Natural treats from Loving pets and being the cautious mom that I’m I watched each of the pups closely after giving a treat to ensure they are 100% fine; that’s a normal thing I do with every new treat. Once I’m confident that a treat is 100% healthy for my pets I will stick with that brand no matter what the price. It’s worth it to me to keep my babies happy and healthy.
Loving Pets not only has healthy and Made in USA treats they also have amazing dog bowls that would make for a great holiday gift. We actually have a few of the Bella bowls sitting around in the home; they are durable, dishwasher safe, stylish and the perfect size for each pet. They come in Small all the way to XL and they have lots of fun design from Designer and Expression Collection to a Classic Design. I’m sure there are a few bowls that will fit your style and home and will keep your pup happy and healthy. I also love that the Bella Bowls have a rubber ring on the bottom, keeping them from sliding all around on the floor while your pup is trying to eat. You can also remove the rubber ring on the bottom. So grab a few next time you are at the store and see why I love them so much ~ I’m kind of addicted to the Bella Bowls. No other bowl is good enough for my pups.
You can purchase any of the Loving pets products are your local Pet Store like Pets Supermarket, Petco, Petsmart and as a little savings tip, the Bella bowls are also available at TJ Max or Marshalls.
