Pet Treats for the Holidays

Inferior products are used in most commercially sold holiday pet treats, bummer.

I'll take Quality or Quantity Every Time

If you shop with me you've probably noticed that we don't go over board here at the Bridger Animal Nutrition store's with holiday themed items. 

It's not because we're not festive, it's because we're picky. Finding any of quality is a real problem.
The influx of trips to the vet right after Christmas is freaky high due to the sudden ingestion of crappy treats & chews that were gifted as tokens of holiday spirit.

Mass produced holiday themed cookies and  raw hides are produced with inferior ingredients,  jacked up on food coloring, sugars, preservatives and even artificially scented to attract YOU not your pet.
Holiday themed rubber, latex & soft toys are often a one-time-shot as they're cheaply made and almost always imported from "you know where" and should be disposed of quickly thereafter.  

If you really want to treat your pet, try making some of your own homemade treats from one of our recipes in our blog list. 
Or- if you're like us and have no time left to bake for yourself let alone your dog, check out the few super-good holiday items we do have in stock.   

But I must admit, you'll mostly hear us recommending that you purchase one of our safe & healthy regularly stocked top-end treats or chews and dress it up in a holiday bow at home instead. 

Nothing beats the real thing!
