If your dog suffers from allergies, you know how frustrating it can be to manage their diet and environment. Oftentimes, we don’t know exactly what ingredient causes the reaction. As a result, limited ingredients foods & treats have become all the rage these days with both careful pet parents and veterinarians.

However, even limited ingredient foods & treats can be problematic. If your dog reacts, you still don’t know which ingredient caused the problem.

Why “Single Ingredient” Treats Are The Best Choice for Dogs with Allergies

When you feed your dog a single ingredient product, you’ll be able to better detect allergic reactions and isolate problematic ingredients.

The problem is that most dog treats are packed with filler ingredients such as wheat/gluten, corn, and soy, or questionable proteins and preservatives.

Because of the high protein quality, many pet parents also use single ingredient meat treats as food toppers as a way of adding protein to their dog’s existing kibble diet. (most dry dog food’s have a shockingly low amount of protein compared to starch)

We Hated What Was Out There, So We Made Our Own

Our frustration with our own experiences with dog treats led us to develop a line of single ingredient, gently freeze dried meat treats. In addition to containing only a single ingredient protein, our treats pack a raw nutritional punch by not cooking vital nutrients out of the meat. And like all our Project Paws ® products, each purchase funds healthy meals for shelter dogs!
