Healthy homemade pet treats are always something we are looking for! Last weekend at our barn hunt trial, there was a stand with some mighty tasty smelling treats not far from our kennels. Mom had to check them out, and of course, she ended up buying some for us! I don’t care much for barn hunt but if they sell treats at the event, count me in!
My GBGV Life purchased the products in this review for our own use. My GBGV Life receives no benefits for barking about Rustic Acres products. The opinions in this review are the honest opinion of My GBGV Life. Rustic Acres is not responsible for the contents of this post.
The treat lady brought mostly chicken and beef treats. Some are dehydrated, some freeze dried. Did you know you can actually keep freeze dried treats for up to twenty five years? They would never last nearly that long at our house, so we are not worried about their shelf life. Freeze dried treats also keep ninety seven percent of their nutrients Dehydrated foods can only be kept for up to four years, but that is also too long for our house. We like to eat our treats in a timely manner.
Mom grabbed a flyer so we would have the information we need to order more treats in the future. Lately we have had a lot of chicken, so we chose beef products. Normally the treat lady has some rabbit products, but they sold out right away. How that could happen we don’t know! She makes all the products on her farm with no additives.
After thinking over the choices for a whole day, we opted to purchase some beef heart and beef tripe snacks. Lately we get some beef heart in our dinners once a week and we love it. This is a great way to get that yummy flavor in not so messy, treat form. We all love tripe, so anything in a tripe treat is also pawsome!
I eat the beef heart so fast, Mom can’t get a photo of me, but I think my “after tongue” tells it all. They are super yummy and really good for us too. Beef heart is an organ meat. Organ meats are packed with heavy doses of B vitamins such as: B1, B2, B6, folic acid and vitamin B12. They are also loaded with minerals like phosphorus, iron, copper, magnesium and iodine, and provide the important fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. Beef heart is a good that is super healthy, but needs to be eaten in moderation because of the high fat content.
We also have the freeze dried beef tripe, yum! Both the heart and tripe are things that humans throw out but we are happy to eat them instead! Tripe is the stomach lining, in this case, of cows. It is super tasty but humans find it rather disgusting and smelly. Tripe is really good for us dogs. It is full of protein for strong muscles and bones. Protein also helps provide pups with the energy we need for the day and it helps us grow thick, healthy furs.
It is no trouble at all for me to snarf these yummy homemade pet treats down in a nano second! They are really delicious, and so good for us pups! These yummy treats are made here in Minnesota. If you want to order some, you can do so on the Rustic Acres website. Their site doesn’t have a lot of photos and stuff, but if you know what you are interested in, it still works to order. We always like to support small businesses and ones close to home are even better!
