Dog Treat Gifts 2014

When training a dog, treats are an essential tool that also help reinforce positive behavior. They’re also helpful in bridging your canine over to his next full meal. Please give treats responsibly, as — pun aside — pet obesity is a big problem with pets.

Dr. Harvey’s Power Patties Freeze Dried Raw Green Tripe Treat for Dogs

Easily digested and highly palatable, tripe is considered to be one of the most complete foods for carnivores. The stomach lining and contents of cattle contains partially digested grains and grasses, amino acids, omega 3 and 6, digestive enzymes, and a proper calcium/phosphorus balance. As if that weren’t enough, tripe even promotes a shiny, lovely coat. But tripe, well, it stinks. So while freeze dried, Dr. Harvey’s Power Patties will deliver all of tripe’s essential nutrients, without all of the stink. Perfect.
