New Product At The Diabetic Dog Bakery

Bones at the Diabetic Dog Bakery

We are pleased to offer a new product at the Diabetic Dog Bakery, the ‘Bones and Bones’ dog treats. We offer 5 flavors: Mint and Parsley, Sweet Potato, Pumpkin and Banana, Blueberry, plus Flaxseed and Cherry.

‘Bones and Bones’ is a product we have decided to offer again. We sold them successfully for the first 3 years in our bakery but upon relocating for my husband’s company, we were not set up to offer them. We were asked by our long-time customers to reconsider baking our captivating recipe for ‘Bones and Bones’.  We changed our minds!

Order as many pounds as you like and join the satisfaction that our long-time customers know.  We look forward to introducing our ‘Bones and Bones’ to new four-legged customers.

Customer comments have shown that our diabetic-friendly dog treats have not elevated their 4-legged family member’s glucose levels. We already knew this but love reading and knowing that our        customers are seeing this exciting fact too.

Are Monarch Butterflies Toxic?

Fall has come over most of the U.S. states and with that comes our beautiful monarch butterflies eating to gain strength for their Mexican flight over winter.

As each butterfly drinks their selected nectar of  milk weed, they gain in toxic strength to dogs and cats.  Milk weed is a known toxin for dogs and cats.  The problem lies in a toxic flying object which draws them to jump in anticipation of a sweet snack.

Keeping in mind that the more you attract Monarchs to your yard with butterfly bushes and similar landscaping, it will bring that toxic possibilities closer to your beloved pets.  Some of the common signs of toxicity to watch for are:

  • vomiting
  • drooling with nausea
  • weakness or collapsing
  • dilated pupils
  • tremors
  • seizures
  • abnormal heart rate
  • death
