Health Benefits of Whole Wheat

Mmm... Whole wheat is a tasty, staple ingredient of our healthy, EcoDog pet treats!

Whole wheat is a whole grain containing 3 parts - the bran, germ & endosperm. Once refined, wheat is stripped of the complete essential nutrients and so, this is why wheat is better than white flour as far as natural vitamin content!

Whole wheat is beneficial for your health for several reasons:

*Fiber-rich; prevents gallstones
*Vitamin E, Zinc, Folate
*Magnesium; improves colon/digestive health
*Lowers cholesterol/reduces risk for heart disease
*Encourages balanced metabolism/weight control
*Vitamin B and more...

Browse the EcoDog shop to view our collection of tasty, seasonal treats baked with healthy, whole wheat flour!

*Our whole wheat flour is 100% US grown and unbleached.

Health Benefits of Eggs

EcoDog use

s locally-produced eggs first - always choosing free-range andantibiotic/hormone-free eggs. We love to use the freshest ingredients to make tasty treats and support local farms first! :)

Eggs are used as a binding agent in our biscuit-style treats but also add many important vitamins as well!

Eggs are high in protein as well as one of the only natural producers of vitamin D. Eggs also have essential nutrients that help boost the shine of your dogs coat and nails.
