Someone sent me a link to this article a few days ago, which discusses the long-term effect of using the pesticide Roundup before harvest for many grain crops.
All I can say is, wow! It’s great food for thought. We’ve seen a huge rise in people reporting problems with wheat products – so much so that it’s spawning a massive industry in gluten-free everything. And as dog owners, we are seeing more dogs than ever before showing the signs of wheat and grain intolerances.
But what if what we’re really experiencing is a problem with how our wheat and grains are processed, and not the grains themselves?
Part of the reason we created Saintlees Cookie Treats was to deal with Amy’s food issues. We specifically use an organic rice flour instead of regular flour, and organically grown and harvested rolled oats. We get a consistent, tasty product that dogs love, and a nice solid “result” at the end of the day.
