Hors D’Oeuvres for Dogs

December 8, 2010

Cardinal Pet Care’s Pet Botanics Omega Treats are a Healthy Holiday Alternative For Pets

AZUSA, Calif. Any holiday celebration worth its salt (or dipping sauce) begins with someone passing around trays of mouthwatering hors d’oeuvres.  This little guilty caloric pleasure for holiday party goers can be a bit torturous for the family dog as the mouthwatering scent of grilled meat and seafood waft through the air just out of reach. Since this is the season of giving, some party guests are tempted by a dog’s plaintive stare to share a treat with their four-legged companion. Not a good idea: aside from being too rich for a dog’s digestive system, human hors d’oeuvres can contain ingredients like onions that are toxic to canines.

Now Cardinal Pet Care offers a solution that allows pets to enjoy holiday hors d’oeuvres without endangering their health or putting on weight. The company’s Pet Botanics Omega Treats are tiny multi-layered pieces of meat and vegetables that have the look and feel of real human hors d’oeuvres.  When placed on a tray they even resemble the real thing, so human guests can pass them around at a party and offer them to the family pet during their pre-dinner snack fest. Since Pet Botanic Omega Treats are only 9 calories each (what human hors d’oeuvre can make that claim!), a dog can enjoy between three and five of them along with his regular meal.  Plus, dogs love the flavors and aromas of Omega Treats so much, they’ll forget about the human appetizers!

Made from the finest human-grade ingredients such as meat, poultry, fish and sweet potato, Omega Treats are not only low in fat, they also contain Vitamins A and D and omega 3 and 6 fatty acids.  Pet Botanic Omega Treats are made in a plant that produces only food grade products under the direct supervision of Cardinal Pet Care’s own pet nutritionist. The treats do not contain wheat, soybean, lechtin, BHA, BHT, Ethoxyquin, artificial flavors, glutens or grains.

What do the treats contain? Only nine ingredients, mainly cod, sweet potato and depending on the flavor, chicken, duck, tuna or salmon. Available in 3, 6 and 18-ounce packages, the MSRP is approximately $4.99 to $29.99.

Based in Azusa, California, Cardinal Pet Care’s manufacturing (Cardinal Laboratories) and distribution center is a 100% solar-powered facility.  The 60-year-old pet product company is a pioneer in green technology, being the first privately held company to do so in the pet industry – and in its city – to manufacture products using solar energy exclusively.  Its products, which include Pet Botanics Omega Treats for Dogs and Viva La Dog Spa pet shampoos and conditioners, are sold at pet retailers nationwide.  For more information, contact Cardinal Pet Care at 800-433-7387 or visit
