These Hearty Cookies are made with organic, human grade ingredients with many supplements to enhance the overall health and well-being of your four legged family members. These cookies are given to my two chihuahuas (pictured in my shop logo) every night. I call out "Dessert time!" and they come running.
I give my two chis the treats from my shop throughout the day, but in the evening, I wanted to give them something different and special. I had a favorite brand of chew sticks that contained many organic ingredients with just the right texture and size for them. I'd been feeding them this "dessert" stick for years, until they recently changed their recipe. Many of the organic ingredients had disappeared and the wholesome items were pushed further down their ingredients list. That's when I started my search for a new dessert. I read many ingredient labels and finally found one that both my chis and I liked. The ingredients were not organic, but sounded nice and wholesome. I bought three bags and they were well received. Each time I gave them a stick, I kept thinking about the few ingredients that I didn't like. Tapioca and salt were the two main ingredients that stood out to me. Tapioca has very low nutritional value and is basically just carbs. Everything I've read over the years says dogs do not need salt added to their food or treats. If you're feeding your dogs a good quality diet, there is no need to add more salt.
I fed my chis these new dessert sticks for several days, then noticed white specs appearing in their stool. They were the whole quinoa from the new dessert sticks! What good does it do when the seeds just pass through them without getting to the nutrients inside? That was when I decided to make my own dessert for them.
The chia, flax and quinoa seeds (quinoa is a seed, not a grain) are ground, so that all of their nutrients are able to be absorbed. Also, I don't add ANY salt or anything else to prevent mold or lengthen shelf life! The supplements in the Hearty Cookies are ones I feel are the most important to my chis' long term health. These cookies are baked, not dehydrated. The texture is very hearty and crunchy.
Ingredients: organic chicken, organic chia seeds, organic flax seeds, organic quinoa, organic coconut oil, organic cinnamon, organic milk thistle, joint supplement, organic turmeric, gelatin, and mushroom blend.
