Scrumptious Treats For Pups With Food Allergies & Dietary Restrictions
We're extremely fortunate our fur-kids don't suffer from food allergies. We make all of their meals from scratch. Treats too. They all have food preferences. Coco isn't a huge fan of raw fruits and vegetables, however, he's addicted to raw carrots. Sophie won't eat raw blueberries. She'll only eat bananas if they're mashed. Lobo...we haven't found he food he doesn't like.
Unfortunately, some pups suffer from food allergies. Whether it's an allergy to one or two things or a slew of ingredients, it's a challenge when purchasing food and treats. We've met quite a few people at events with pups who have food allergies and dietary restrictions. They've expressed their frustrations and explained how difficult it is trying to deciper all of the ingredients on a single bag of food or box of treats. Some threw their hands up and went the route of DIY meals and treats.
While our bicuits do not contain eggs, dairy or meat, they're not grain free. People have asked if we're going to come out with a grain-free option. In the future, quite possibly, but for now, it's not something we offer.
There are a tremendous amount of recipes that cater to pups with allergies and other dietary restrictions. Like we've always said, making your own treats has a world of benefits. You control the ingredients, they're healthier and it's much cheaper. You get a lot more for a lot less.
We did a little searching for ya and here's a list of scrumptious recipes to get you started!
