Dog Treats Made in America
Today’s post, Dog Treats Made in America, is a gently used post from days of old. Enjoy!
I often talk about how Jones Natural Chews are 100% all natural. And they are. That’s a pretty amazing thing, considering that they’re meat and bones, not cookie treats. No fancy coatings or anything. But I don’t frequently talk about the made in America aspect of our treats.
Jones Natural Chews really are made in America. Every step of the treat is grown and produced on American soil, and by America, I mean the United States of America, not simply North or South America. That’s what the seal above certifies.
Jones Natural Chews Ingredients
Jones Natural Chews treats come from farms. The treats are grown, because they come from living things, not from a lab somewhere. What are our “made in America” ingredients? I thought I’d scare up a list of every single ingredient used by Jones, and they’re all from USA farms, grown on USA soil. We’ll start with the meats, since the bulk of our treats are single ingredient meat treats.
- Rye flour
- Guar gum
- Natural smoke flavoring
- Natural collagen casing
- Natural mixed tocopherols (vitamin E)
- Rosemary extract
Do you realize how incredible this is? For instance, the sausage sticks and jerkies are only three ingredients – meat, rye flour and salt. That’s it. The Woofer, cute as it is, is only beef. Y’all, these are ALL THE INGREDIENTS that Jones uses in their treats. This is it! And every one of them is grown on American soil! Well, pretty sure no one is growing the water or salt.
Sixteen ingredients. That’s all Jones Natural Chews uses. And six of them are meat. Not meat by-product, but the actual meat! Not meat meal, but beef, chicken, pork. Much of the meat is clearly identifiable in it’s original form. Like the Lamb Lung Puffs. And the Steer Sticks. And Pig Ears. All from American critters.
Where Are Your Dog’s Treats Made?
Why am I making such a big deal out of Jones made in America treats? Open a new window and do a search for “dog treats China”. Let me know what you find. I like knowing where my own food comes from. I like knowing that I’m eating fewer, better ingredients. I like knowing where my dog’s food comes from, too. And I like that Jones Natural Chews offers such quality. So few ingredients. I like that they’ve been in business about 30 years, way before the current wave of all natural and made in America dog treats. I like that they’ve been family run from the beginning. I like that they work hard to ensure our dogs – our furry family members – get the best at the most reasonable prices for such quality.
