New Organic Dog Treats Offer Long Term Health Advantages

New to the market, Pet Bistro’s advanced development in organic dog treats offers long-term health benefits for dogs. Pet Bistro’s nutritious BarkScotti™ organic dog treats are completely free of chemicals, flour by-products, and negative health effects.

Organic dog treats: Studies show that veterinarians and pet owners need to choose dog treats wisely. Veterinary nutritionist Lisa M. Freeman notes, “With obesity in pets on the rise, it is important for pet owners to factor in not only their dog's food, but also treats and table food." The U.S. Food and Drug Administration continue to issue warnings against dog treats that are high in calories, thought to harbor dangerous bacteria, and associated with serious illness in dogs. However, because these same dog treats can be found in generic grocery stores and pet stores across the nation, pet owners are largely unaware of these nutritional dangers until it is too late.

Unlike mainstream dog treat offerings, Pet Bistro™ Organic BarkScotti™ is a healthy nutritional protein snack that provides a complete protein which helps to reduce hunger between meals. Pet Bistro BarkScotti™ features ingredients like organic wild blueberries, quinoa, flax, and honey.

In most dog treat recipes, flour is one of the most abundant ingredients and provides the bulk of the carbohydrates. Organic BarkScotti™, however, is made with organic quinoa which is gluten-free and a good source of dietary fiber. Almond flour adds more protein and vitamins to the treats.

While most commercial dog treats require flavor enhancers, Organic BarkScotti™ are naturally flavored with wild blueberries, lemon juice, and vanilla. Instead of using preservatives such as BHA to prevent microbial growth, Pet Bistro incorporates honey, which offers both antiseptic and antibacterial properties as well as nutrition and flavor.

Over 50% of all dog owners regularly give their dogs treats. These treats are not essential to a dog's diet, but are typically given as a way to indulge or train their pets. Because BarkScotti™ organic dog treats are gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free, and meat-free, they are easy to digest and full of vital nutrients for dogs. They do not cause side effects like obesity or allergic reactions that other dog treats cause but offer long-term health benefits.

What Isn’t In Healthy Pet Products

At Pet Bistro, we read pet food labels carefully. Many pet owners are shocked at some of the dog food ingredients that are used. Glyceryl monostearate, propylene glycol, Blue No. 2, Red No. 40, titanium dioxide – these are just some of the ingredients that can be found in many commercial pet products, including so-called healthy dog treats. Fillers, byproducts, and chemical additives are used to extend the shelf life of these treats and lower the cost of production. Meanwhile, many of these treats are sold as health food supplements for dogs, like biscuits that are fortified with vitamins and minerals, or low in fat. But while these treats are touted as having a high nutritional content, the ingredients used in these products are always viewed as lower quality than the ones used in human food. Why must this be the case? Shouldn’t our canine companions enjoy the same food produced for humans? And more importantly, how can discerning dog owners find the best healthy dog treats for their pet?

With healthy dog treats from Pet Bistro, you can be assured that your pet is getting a truly nutritious and wholesome snack. Unlike other pet products on the market, Pet Bistro’s BarkScotti™ contains organic ingredients and remains free of animal by-products, toxic chemicals, preservatives, pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, and artificial ingredients. Few dog food manufacturers can make the same claim!

Let’s make a comparison. The primary ingredients in a dog biscuit recipe are carbohydrates, proteins, fats and oils, and fiber. This is where dog owners can see the Pet Bistro difference. Rather than use flour, corn, or rice meal as the source of carbs, Pet Bistro uses quinoa to produce a gluten and grain free treat. Pet Bistro’s BarkScotti™ gets protein and fiber from quinoa, flax, and almond flour, not commonly used ingredients like corn gluten meal or worse - meat byproduct meal. This innocent sounding, yet vague ingredient is a misnomer since these byproducts contain little, if any, meat. Instead, it does contain parts of the animal left over after the meat has been stripped away from the bone. Meat meal can contain the boiled down flesh of zoo animals, road kill, and diseased livestock. Happily, Pet Bistro’s BarkScotti™ are meat-free but still full of protein.

In addition, fats and oils are added to biscuit recipes to provide flavor and nutritional energy. However, did you know that much of the fats and oils used in commercial pet food is derived from animal fat, a by-product of rendering? On the other hand, Pet Bistro uses safflower oil, which is high in vitamin E and omega-6 fatty acids. Other ingredients in Pet Bistro’s BarkScotti™, like wild blueberries and honey, add great flavor and nutrition to the treats - naturally.

Furthermore, Pet Bistro’s BarkScotti™ Dog Treats are made in a kitchen, not a lab. Commercial dog biscuit manufacturing operations combine their ingredients in industrial-sized mixers, but Pet Bistro bakes their biscuits in small batches to ensure quality. Pet Bistro’s dog treats will disperse the notion that dog treats are made with subpar ingredients. In fact, dog owners won’t have to worry if other pets or even small children gobble up the treats. They are made to be human-grade and nutritious. BarkScotti™ Dog Treats are also great ways to indulge or train your dog. Treats are not essential to your dog's diet, but are easily given in excess. However, BarkScotti™ Dog Treats are healthy dog training snacks because they are full of nutritional protein, which helps to reduce hunger between meals.

What Does Natural Dog Treat Really Mean?

Dog treats have come a long way since the first commercially manufactured dog biscuit was introduced. Around 1860, James Spratt, an electrician from Ohio, visited England and reportedly saw a group of dogs eating discarded hardtack, the tough biscuits carried on ships. Spratt was inspired to create biscuits just for dogs. Before then, pets were receiving unbalanced meals of scraps from their owners' tables. Spratt's Patent Meat Fibrine Dog Cakes featured a combination of wheat meals, vegetables, beetroot, and “the dried unsalted gelatinous parts of Prairie Beef”. These new dog biscuits were considered to be the first step toward a more natural and wholesome treat for dogs.

Before long, Spratt’s dog biscuits faced competition from other products, like Dr. A. C. Daniels' Medicated Dog Bread and F. H. Bennett's Malatoid Dog Biscuits a.k.a the Milk-Bone. In 1908, the F.H. Bennett Biscuit Company advertised their Malatoid biscuits as a supplemental dog biscuit made with wheat, vegetables, meat and added vitamins and minerals. The company started producing the dog biscuits in the shape of a bone and added milk as an ingredient, resulting in its new name - the Milk-Bone dog biscuit. These dog biscuits were simpler and healthier than many of the commercially manufactured dog treats on the market today.

Over the years, more and more dog biscuits and treats have been introduced, with new shapes, colors, and flavors. These natural treats gradually transformed into unhealthy sweets loaded with excess fat and calories. We can see the impact of this change in the rising obesity rates of dogs in America. As the pet food industry grew, it became necessary for the Food & Drug Administration, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and state feed control officials to implement regulations on the processing methods and quality controls used by pet food manufacturers. Despite the fact that dog treats are supposed to meet the same safety standards expected for foods for human consumption, most dog treats lack true natural ingredients.

Today, the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) requires that all animal foods are “safe to eat, produced under sanitary conditions, contain no harmful substances, and be truthfully labeled”. However, more and more canine diseases have been linked to ingredients found in certain dog foods. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns pet owners that pet food can be contaminated with potential harmful bacteria including Salmonella and Campylobacter. They recommend to “avoid feeding your pet in the kitchen to prevent getting germs found in pet food on people food". Unmistakably, mainstream pet food offerings are not by any means natural!

Moreover, pet food product manufacturers are not required to have pre-market approval by the FDA. The FDA considers ingredients such as meat, poultry and grains to be safe – this might include by-products. Even other substances like flavorings, preservatives, and processing aids may be generally recognized as safe (GRAS), and may be approved for use. It is clear that pet owners looking for natural dog treats need to read the labels carefully and investigate the true nature of the ingredients stated.

Pet owners today understand the importance of a balanced diet for dogs, with the right amount of protein, fat, carbohydrates, and essential vitamins and minerals. There are no by-products in Pet Bistro’s dog treats! Pet Bistro’s BarkScotti™ are real natural dog treats, backed by a straightforward list of whole foods like organic quinoa, wild blueberries, flax, honey, and almond flour. Other natural ingredients in BarkScotti™ includes safflower oil, lemon juice, vanilla, and baking powder. These fresh treats are oven-baked to flavorful perfection in the USA using human-grade ingredients. Pet Bistro’s dog treats are dairy-free, grain-free, meat-free, and gluten-free.

Grain-Free Dog Treats For A Healthier Dog

Pet Bistro’s™ BarkScotti™ is a one-of-a-kind grain-free dog treat that is made with organic quinoa, which is gluten-free, and studies have suggested that quinoa is also easy to digest. In terms of nutrition, quinoa is a source of complete protein. Furthermore, quinoa contains healthy amino acids and is a good source of dietary fiber, calcium, phosphorus and is also high in iron and magnesium. These ingredients make BarkScotti™ a healthy dog treat. Not only is it grain-free and gluten-free, but also dairy and meat free.

Quinoa is consumed in the same manner as other cereal grasses, such as wheat, oats, barley and rye. However, quinoa is not actually considered to be a cereal grass. Rather, it is grouped together in the same food family that contains spinach and beets. The scientific name for quinoa is Chenopodium quinoa, and many researchers refer to quinoa as being a type of “pseudocereal,” meaning, it is a type of food that is not a grass, but can still be ground into flour.

Quinoa is an important food to be consumed in a gluten-free diet. Not only does it not contain gluten, but quinoa also does not belong to the same plant family that contains the above-mentioned cereal grasses of wheat, oats, barley and rye. Furthermore, because quinoa has a high ability to be digested, it is less likely to produce adverse reactions upon consumption.

Although organic BarkScotti™ lacks meat, it is still a grain-free dog treat that contains healthy proteins. Quinoa is high in protein and amino acids. These amino acids include lysine, an essential amino acid for mammals, and also isoleucine. Isoleucine is not produced in animals, but can be stored in high quantities. Foods such as eggs, soy protein, seaweed, turkey, chicken, cheese, lamb and fish contain isoleucine.

Additionally, quinoa provides a variety of antioxidant phytonutrients, including freulic, coumaric, hydroxybenzoic, and vanillin acid. Quinoa is also a good source of maganese, phosphorus, copper, magnesium, dietary fiber, folate and zinc.
The BarkScotti™ made by Pet Bistro™ is a dog treat that will satisfy your dog’s need for a snack, but also provide nutrition to their overall diet. Instead of consuming treats that are high in sugars, fats and carbohydrates, they will consume a gluten-free snack filled with high protein quinoa. BarkScotti™ still tastes great and yet does not lead to adverse health consequences such as diabetes and obesity, as other dog treats may. Keep your dog eating healthy grain-free dog treats.
