Home-made dog biscuits - McDowell's Herbal Treatments

Commercial dog treats and kibble contain many unwanted ingredients. Cheap fillers, artificial flavours and colours and even glue has been found in commercial dogs treats. Bulk 'meat meal' which is meat by-products heated at very high temperatures to destroy bacteria and viruses is the base of most dog food. Cheap and unstable vegetable oils are also a major component and are incredibly inflammatory.
