Sugar in Pet Treats: Read the Label!

Surprise---just a reminder that a common ingredient in MANY pet treats is "cane juice" and just plain sugar. Even brands that are organic and seemingly healthy! Sugar is not good for your pets and can lead to diabetes, dental problems, UTIs, infections and more. Look on the labels for freeze-dried, quality protein sources such as venison and bison.

Here is just one example from a quality manufacturer:

Grandma Lucy's Blueberry Organic Oven Baked Dog Treats 
Organic Wheat Flour, Organic Dehydrated Cane Juice, Organic Soybean and/or Organic Sunflower and/or Organic Canola Oil, Organic Rice Starch, Organic Blueberry, Organic Vanilla Extract.

Why would you EVER want to give your pet sugar? Please watch labels as this is a good example of a pet treat that appears organic and healthy until you read the label......
