Hi all!

I have two of the most wonderful dogs!

I have a question... Does anyone buy the organic bone treats for their dogs? Versus Milk Bone? My dogs love their treats, they dance and talk for them ALOT needless to say they are spoiled. As much as they get would organic be better for them?

 

Thanks

Stephanie

Hi Stephanie, and welcome to the Pet boards! I'm not really one to advise you, because when all the pet food scandal happened a few years ago, I started giving my dog oatmeal cookies from the grocery store. Bad, I know, but he never liked dog cookies anyway, he'd just leave them on the floor. I would think organic would definitely be better than Milk Bone though. Commercial treats are like junk food for dogs.

Here's some good info on the subject:

What kind of dogs do you have and how old are they?

Welcome Stephanie!!!  Please tell us all about your furkids and post some pics if you can.

I'm Laura and I'm the furmom to a 6YO lab/mix, Cleo.

Honestly, even when I see "organic" in the grocery stores I tend to think "pricier" rather than healthier.  But that's just me.  My Cleo loves her Milk Bones....I call them "crack for dogs"....LOL....  She gets one in the evening after her dinner and a half when she comes back from her afternoon walk, or after the dog park.  I also buy dog cookies from Petco and she gets these on Saturday evening.

I'm sure that there are some benefits from buying organic but when I tried to give Cleo what I thought was a healthier dog food, she didn't like it.  So I feed her Nutro Natural Choice and she loves it.  As long as she eats her food and loves her treats, I'm happy.
