    Food Advisories:

    As you know, not all dogs have the same diet. Please consult your veterinarian before feeding these foods to your pet. Some foods and ingredients have high sugar content and need to be used in moderation.

    Remember to use these treats and snacks in moderation, especially when trying new foods with your dog. Some pups have sensitive stomachs, and the addition of new foods may cause digestive issues. Make sure to figure these treats into your dog's daily or weekly food amount to avoid unnecessary weight gain. Learn about foods you should never feed your dog here.
