Dogs And Their Allergies

A former coworker has a dog that had begun itching and scratching incessantly. So much so, he had worn away a lot of his fur. She took him to the vet suspecting fleas; as it turned out, he was allergic to wheat which is in many dog treats and foods.

When we started our dog treat business, we gave out some samples to dog owners we know and she had to turn them away so her beloved Snoopy wouldn't get sick.

Many dogs have problems with wheat, onions and garlic. If your dog has any strange behaviors or illnesses following consumption of a new food or treat, you may wish to consult your veterinarian to rule out an allergy.

Other items that your dogs should NEVER EVER eat, but would if given the opportunity, is CHOCOLATE! Chocolate contains harmful chemicals theobromine, caffeine and theophylline. If consumed, death is not certain but a trip to the vet will perhaps be necessary. We use carob or yogurt chips to offer a sweet and safe alternative.

In the meantime, we at Abby's Dog Treat Bakery have developed several wheat, garlic and onion free treats as we believe all dogs should have access to delicious, wholesome, home-baked treats.
