Why You’ll Never Feed Your Dog by Products Again

When you think of “by products,” your mind probably goes to all the dog food horror stories you might have heard over the years.

Stories about how roadkill ended up in your dog’s food.

Or the one about euthanized dogs and cats being used for feed.

And what about the one explaining why plastic, styrofoam, and ID tags end up in the mix?

As hard as it is to hear about the horrendous practices happening in the commercial dog food and treat industry, the information is vital, and so are the warnings. You need to know how to protect your dog.

Unfortunately, many people fail to remember that the same plants rendering by products for food are also manufacturing and selling dog treats with animal by products.

What Are Animal By Products?

Humans are at the top of the totem pole in terms of who gets the best meat products. We have the benefit of knowing whether or not the food we eat is up to “human grade” standard. In other words, we know when our food is safe to eat.

Dogs, on the other hand, don’t have their food rigorously tested. In fact, commercial pet food manufacturers tend to use what’s left after humans have made use of animal products. In turn, your dog ends up getting the parts that aren’t suitable for human use.

The by products in dog food and treats contain parts like feet, backs, brains, heads, and more.

And the problem with by products isn’t just the product itself, but the way it’s handled.

The parts commonly used in dog food and treats come from animals that are already dead - for who knows how long - when they arrive to the plants. They’re parts from deceased zoo animals, diseased cattle, tumor ridden chickens, or spoiled grocery store meat.

On top of all that, none of the meat is stored properly - it might sit on a plant floor (in the heat) for 24 hours - and the packaging from grocery stores, bags that deceased animals arrive in, and even plastic identification tags are all left un-removed before being processed.

The Solution

The horror of dog food by products isn’t recent news; these stories have been circulating for years.

Many people fail to remember that dog treats, just like dog food, often contain these exact same by products.

That’s why Safe Bones Co exists - to help you avoid the dangerous and unsuitable pet industry practices. We won’t stand for our own dogs to take part in these unacceptable methods, and we want to help you protect your dog, too.

We strongly believe your dog should only be consuming single ingredient treats. If the package says it contains beef - that’s all you should get.

The treats we provide are made with 100% natural, USA only beef. They’re never imported, and we can literally track every single animal used to make our treats.

Why do we go through all this trouble?


Sure, our process might be in-depth, hands on, and time consuming, but our dogs are worth it, and so are yours.

Of course, simply ensuring your dog’s treats are made from quality, fresh, and healthy meat isn’t enough. We also want your pup to have high protein, clean dog treats - the kind that add nutritional value to your dog’s diet. That’s why there’s no wheat, corn, or soy in our treats. Rest assured, you and your dog are in good hands.

What About Fillers And Additives?

You might already know not to feed your dog anything with by products. If you’re aware of and actively avoid ingredients like “chicken meal,” “digest,” and “blood meal,” you’re already one step ahead.

Are you watching out for unhealthy fillers and additives, too?

After taking a look into the atrocious by product practices, you probably won’t be surprised to find that many dog treats also contain artificial ingredients and preservatives known to cause upset stomach, gastrointestinal problems, and worse. In fact, the same chemicals used in pesticides have been known to end up in dog products to add a longer shelf life.

Again, the simplest solution is to provide your dog with all-natural, never imported, and high protein treats. Avoid falling into the dog food and treat industry traps. Your pup’s health depends on it.
