Someone asked me the other day, "is any of your dog treats soft? My senior dog just had 8 teeth removed and I am afraid she can not chew on some of her favourite biscuits from you." My answer, in short, is, "yes, there are". And then I realized it's about time to put together a list of FAQ. So it is.
Q: Are there any treats for senior dogs or dogs who prefer soft treats?
A: Yes there are. The softest two products in our collection are the sweet potato coconut balls and the celebration cake. However, other treats can be made soft as well. The reason that most treats are hard and crispy is that they have been dehydrated to achieve a longer shelf-life. If needed, customers can request the following treats to be made soft in case a shorter shelf-life is not an issue.
Chicken liver mini
Blueberry good breath jerky
All you need to do is to mention that you prefer to have soft treats in the "special request" box.
Q: Are the treats hypoallergenic?
A: Unfortunately there is no universal hypoallergenic formula. Dogs may be allergic, if any allergy, to different things. However, our cookies have taken out the most common allergen, wheat, and all the ingredients are listed on the product page. There is no hidden ingredient. There are also vegan treats and grain-free treats to choose from. I always encourage my customers to go through the ingredients list before ordering if your dog is prone to allergies.
Q: How do you make these treats gluten-free?
A: I use different mixtures of alternative flour to achieve gluten-free. These alternative flour include buckwheat, tapioca, chickpea, oats, coconut flour. Depends on the type of cookies and the characteristic of the cookie dough, I adjust the proportion of each flour.
Q: What is the celebration cake made of?
A: the celebration cake recipe is inspired by the Italian dessert Torta di zucca, pumpkin cake. The ingredients are homemade pumpkin puree, oats, buckwheat flour, coconut oil, egg, 100% bio peanut butter, baking soda. The cake texture is dense but moist, and very similar to vegan carrot cake you can find in some cafes. Pumpkin is a nutrient-rich vegetable that is very good for dogs. If you want to know more about the benefits pumpkin has for dogs, you can read up this article here, it is an easy read. The cake icing is made of low fat cream cheese, greek yogurt, and tapioca flour. If you choose to have colored icing, I use all natural coloring powder which is made from beetroot (pink), turmiric (yellow), saffron & spirulina (green), or spirulina & apple (blue).
