ATTENTION DOG PEOPLE: My friend’s dog is suffering kidney failure after eating Purina manufactured Waggin Train Dog Treats. These “treats” are slowly shutting down their kidneys and killing dogs. Do not give these to your animals and do not buy any treats made in China right now. Please share this so we don’t lose any of our loved ones.

I was just reading about this issue. Pet owners, do you know what kind of treats you should be giving your dogs?

Carrots, cheese, real chunks of leftover chicken or whatever (no bones), natural peanut butter, ice cubes, yogurt, salmon, chunks of sweet potato, canned pumpkin frozen in cubes (great for summer), green beans, oranges, bananas, bits of boiled egg, apples. Homemade dog biscuits. The list goes on. Google something if you’re unsure.

This stuff is always in moderation but there is no reason your dog can’t enjoy real treats from your own fridge instead of the junk packaged and sold at Walmart.

    Cheese tortellini cooked al dente is also a great alternative dog treat. (Not too many though!)
