Milk bones

Bought some at Target. Are these okay to give?

If your dog doesn't have a wheat allergy, they probably won't hurt him. But they have absolutely NO nutritional value. Why would you want to feed your dog something like that, even as a "treat". He'd be better off if you used his own kibble or baby carrots from the grocery store for treats.

When you give them a baby carrot, do you ever get worried they could choke on it? I was peeling carrots for a stew I was making last night and I gave Javi one of the peeled carrots but then started to worry when he took a big bite of it and choke on a piece.

If you are concerned, you could always cut it length-wise, in thin slices. But honestly, I've never HEARD of it happening.

My Momi ALWAYS steams my carrots (zanahorias) for me so they are a little bit soft. I will do a cartwheel for a steamed carrot treat!

Don't feel too bad. I was told that treats at the vet aren't good and I thought I've been feeding them to my Papillon for quite some time thinking I was doing a good thing. He loves them and so does Javi.

This thread was posted recently and seems to have some nice ideas for treats. I've ordered some to see how they are.

Well, you don't have to feel terrible! First, you didn't know, second, as I said, they are unlikely to hurt him, and third, you asked! So now you know better for the next time!!!

Kodi likes his veggies anyway he can get them! In fact, one of his FAVORITES is frozen chunks of broccoli! Yum!

Milk Bones have chemicals in them, which aren't what I'd feed my dog. There are much better options that are a lot healthier.
