With all the concerns about what unknown toxins our beloved pet companions may be consuming in their treats, ScallyWags4Pets offers fresh alternatives made locally, using only human-grade ingredients. Our products have all been Certified Laboratory Tested and Guaranteed Analysis provided for each one. A Master Chef, as well, has been consulted on all recipes.
No artificial preservatives are included in our products, home-baked in small batches with care, so they need to be stored in airtight containers or may be refrigerated or frozen for optimal freshness. We use a sophisticated drying device; however, since our bones & treats are homemade fresh, weather temperatures or humidity may wreak havoc if they are not stored properly. As an added precaution, we've included one food safe "Oxygen Absorber' in each bag of our dog bones & treats, excluding the pet bird treats. Please do not allow your pet to consume the 'Oxygen Absorber'. According to the manufacturer, accidentally eating one will probably not do any harm; nonetheless, it is not safe to consume them regularly. (If your pet eats several 'Oxygen Absorber' packets, then seek emergency medical attention for it.) 'Best if Used Before' dates are also provided.
Our 3-inch bones/treats are truly "one size fits all", since they can easily be broken into pieces to satisfy any pet's appetite or owner's preference.
We recognize that research states wheat flour is a common culprit for pet allergies, so we responsibly substitute gluten-free Brown Rice Flour in our recipes. Brown rice flour is rich in Vitamins B3, B6 and magnesium, which plays a major role in maintaining bodily nerves, bones and muscles and is necessary for sustaining a normal heart beat. Brown rice flour is high in protein, low in fat, and packed with fiber, vitamins and nutrients, such as calcium and zinc. It is a good source of the mineral selenium found to reduce the incidence of cancer and cataracts. It is also rich in Vitamin E, which promotes immunity and is necessary for a pet's healthy skin. Brown rice flour makes for a very light, crunchier treat, thus we have added sweet potatoes to the recipes, so the treats are less brittle. Sweet potatoes are also beneficial additions because they contain nutrients such as complex carbohydrates, dietary fiber, beta carotene, Vitamin C & Vitamin B6, to name just a few. They have also been found to be a blood sugar stabilizer.
We also only use Aluminum-free Baking Powder. (Most all baking powders contain aluminum - a highly toxic heavy metal linked to neuro-diseases and brain damage - this applies to humans, too.) And for oil - only Olive Oil is used in our ingredients, rich in antioxidants, especially Vitamin E, and phytonutrients. It can improve circulation by increasing blood flow and can ward off the effects of asthma - especially beneficial for the Brachycephalic breeds of dogs that have difficulty breathing, (such as the pug and bulldog), although all breeds can benefit from olive oil supplements. Olive Oil prevents and lessens the effects of cardiovascular disease and diabetes. The process of the monounsaturated fats in the oil actually works to persuade the melting of fat cells and reduce insulin sensitivity. It contains oleic acid, in addition to some compounds (squalene and terpenoids) that are believed to be effective in preventing cancer, which kills a staggering 50 percent of dogs over age 10. We do not use the GMO (genetically modified organism) Canola Oil, which is controversial.
These practices result in healthier & safer products for pets. Each of our flavours was chosen not only for their taste, but also for the benefits they provide --
Our Ahoy Peanut Butter, Banana & Oat Flavour Dog Bones contain real peanut butter, which can help a dog's health & their breath, as well. Peanut butter contains Vitamins E, K & B3, also known as niacin and beneficial minerals iron, magnesium, potassium, copper and calcium, as well as modest amounts of dietary fiber. Nutritional research suggests potassium-rich bananas may be health, brain & mood-food for your dog, and most dogs love them. Bananas contain the mood-enhancer tryptophan and Vitamin B6, a blood glucose levels regulator. (As in people, dogs' moods can suffer if their blood glucose levels become unbalanced.) Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body by neutralizing over-acidity and can reduce irritation by coating the lining of the stomach. The soothing properties of oats can also help a pet with some digestive issues. Oats are a great natural source of iron, manganese, zinc & B vitamins, as well as essential fatty acids and antioxidants. They are also high in protein - equal to meat, milk and egg protein and contain an almost complete list of the essential amino acids.
Our Blimey Bacon Flavour Dog Bones contain low-fat milk and only real bacon, (not processed or artificial bacon), giving your pet the "most" of the flavour they love. Ingredients also included are the aforementioned beneficial olive oil, nutritional & curative oats, and eggs - one of the highest quality sources of protein available. Dogs love eggs and eggs have just what dogs need, protein & fat (animal fat, not vegetable fat) which provides energy, important in the diet for active dogs. Eggs also contain almost every essential vitamin.
Our Crow's Nest Chicken Broth Flavour Dog Treats (for Cats, too) contain no-sodium chicken broth, not only for great taste, but also for the age-old appreciation and value for the soothing and healing benefits of chicken soup. The included unsweetened applesauce provides an abundant source of Vitamins C, K and calcium for your pet, and vitamin & mineral-rich eggs offer valuable sources of protein. The recipe for these treats contains the greatest quantity of antioxidant-loaded olive oil, with its healthy immune system properties. This ingredient is especially beneficial for the Brachycephalic breeds of dogs (pugs & bulldogs), or cats (Himalayan & Persian), which can experience breathing difficulty, most notably in hot weather. The herbal qualities of oats which include: antipasmodic, cardiac, diuretic, emollient, & nervine, further enhance these treats. The addition of cholesterol-lowering oats aids in digestion and helps to achieve hormonal balance. Oats also contain the antitumor compound b-sitosterol.
Our Landlubber Cheddar Cheese Flavour Dog Bones contain "everything is better with cheddar" real cheddar cheese for a good source of protein for your pet. Cheddar cheese also provides vitamins and minerals, such as calcium, Vitamins A & B-complex and essential fatty acids. The included Flaxseed Meal is an excellent source of alpha-linolenic acid, a type of Omega-3 fatty acid. (Omega-3 fatty acids are critical for your pet’s skin and coat health.) Flaxseed Meal can prevent dry, itchy skin, shedding, and hot spots. It also has cholesterol-lowering properties and may help stop tumor growth in dogs with cancer. Flaxseed Meal contains both soluble and insoluble fiber. The insoluble fiber speeds the passage of food through the digestive system. It also builds stool volume, helping to evacuate a dog’s anal sacs, preventing impaction and constipation. Flaxseed Meal contains high levels of lignans (phytonutrients – natural chemicals) that provide beneficial properties for dogs. While Flaxseed Meal appears to lose some of its actual nutritional benefit during baking, the lignans remain stable, providing potent antioxidants, as well as anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antibacterial properties.
Our Plunder Pumpkin Flavour Dog Bones contain stomach-soothing pumpkin which may allow pets with digestion problems to enjoy treats, as well. These treats contain pure pumpkin (with no added sugar or spice), since its qualities can help dogs with both constipation and diarrhea and aid with indigestion or upset stomachs. Pumpkin is an excellent source of Vitamin A, potassium and fiber. The nutrients found in pumpkin help to keep a dog's immune system strong, thereby strengthening resistance to cancer and other diseases. The included cinnamon is known to help invigorate and support pets' respiratory and digestive systems. Cinnamon has great anti-inflammatory properties, especially for senior dogs struggling with arthritis. Another ingredient, ginger, is an anti-coagulant, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and a carminative, (meaning less flatulence). Ginger helps in the absorption of foods, aiding digestion, and in treating nausea, such as motion sickness. It also helps boost healthy blood circulation.
Our Shiver Me Timbers Better Breath Flavour Dog Bones contain parsley & mint - perfect natural breath fresheners for dogs. Parsley is high in Vitamins A & C and provides a number of important health benefits for your dog. It can act to purify blood by accelerating the excretion of toxins from the body, reduce allergy symptoms and blood pressure. Parsley has been found to inhibit cancer and is a rich source of vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll and enzymes. It also acts as a diuretic, so it is beneficial for dogs who are prone to kidney and bladder infections, incontinence and arthritis. Mint provides Vitamins B, C, B12, folic acid, thiamin & riboflavin, as well as the minerals, calcium and iron. Mint is also soothing to the stomach and nervous system and helps alleviate nausea and gas. Mint is a germicidal and breath freshener by inhibiting harmful bacterial growth inside a pet’s mouth and by cleaning their tongue and teeth. As well as being a natural diuretic, mint has also been found to be an excellent anti-depressant for dogs.
Our Treasure Chest Tuna Flavour Dog Treats (for Cats, too) contain tuna, beneficial for the skin and coat of your pet, due to the high amount of Omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids also aid joint health and mobility, in addition to a long list of cardiovascular benefits. Tuna is low in saturated fats and high in protein, making it a suitable treat for dogs, as well as for cats. It is an excellent source of Vitamins B6 & 12, folic acid and selenium, which plays a major role in preventing the occurrence of cancer and heart disease. The included dill improves appetite,
digestion and reduces flatulence.
Lighthouse Liver Dog Treats (for Cats, too) contain 100% Beef Liver, dehydrated. They are an excellent source of vitamins, A, B5, B6 & B12, copper, foliate, riboflavin, selenium, zinc, protein, niacin, phosphorous & iron. Liver Treats often serve as useful training rewards.
PUPCAKES have been added in both large & small sizes suitable to most all dogs. They are a cake-like treat made with the Ahoy Peanut Butter, Banana & Oat Flavour Dog Bones recipe, minus the dehydration process. (Other flavours can be made if desired). PUPCAKES are designed to serve for celebratory events, such as, birthdays, rescue days, adoptions, stressful vet visits, after surgeries, grooming days, for being a very 'good dog' days, or for any day you wish to celebrate with your beloved companion. We can personalize with edible food markers or note stixs to mark the occasion. Orders are welcome!
ScallyWags4Pets also offers wreath-shaped treats of healthy eats for our feathered friends or bird companions, named Pirate Wreath Treats for Parrotlets & Mid-size Birds. Catered specifically for Parrotlets & Mid-size birds, other birds may find them tasty, too. Since it is recommended that fruits & vegetables comprise 45% of their diets, our treats contain apple juice and cooked pure pumpkin, while the cooked beans, peas, lentils, hulled sunflower seeds, and ground grains add to the nutritional value to aid in preventing health & behavior problems. For fruits, we include the ultimate superfood: dried wild blueberries, with their phytochemical and antioxidant rich properties; and cranberries, rich in Vitamins A, B1, B2, C, & many nutrients. Cranberries are also full of minerals & polyphenol antioxidants, which can benefit the cardiovascular system and immune system. Other included fruits, raw mango, contains Vitamins A, C & D, along with beta-carotene; and the powerhouse of nutrition, dried currants, are low-fat, cholesterol-free and high-protein. Pet bird experts stress the importance of feeding pet birds the widest variety of food as possible, so we've packed a whole lot of healthy variety into these treats.
New Product added to our line is 'Yo Ho Ho Horse Treats', a bite-size nugget of homemade goodness for your horse. It is made with the same great care & concern as our other products for the health of your horse. The included Coconut Oil has been reported to assist with ulcers, acidosis, colic and dysbiosis and is particularly helpful for horses on a grain-based feed. Coconut Oil is a 'cool energy source' yeilding about 2x more energy than starch or protein and gives your horse a readily digestible energy, without the 'hotness' that generally comes with high grain diets. With so many anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties, Coconut Oil is right at home in the barn. In addition to being tasty treats for horses, the grated apples & carrots serve as good sources of vitamin C, and complex carbohydrates and the sea salt is Nature’s electrolyte. It aids in digestion and stabilizes body functions and fluids. This natural unrefined salt contains over 80 essential minerals. We also add molasses, which is tasty to horses and a good source of potassium. Potassium looks after the control of water absorption by organs, bones and muscles. Remember your horse thrives best on what he would eat naturally; the healthier the treat, the healthier your horse. It’s important to make sure you are feeding your horse clean. One of the best ways to do that is to trust ScallyWags4Pets and reward your horse with their new product, 'Yo Ho Ho Horse Treats'!
At ScallyWags4Pets, we feel it is very important to provide treats that are safe, healthy and yummy to our beloved pets who have no voice and no choice. Their reward is our reward.
