Not only should you be careful about the food you feed your pets but you should choose their treats carefully too. Many treats are total junk food loaded with preservatives, sugar, food colors and additives. You should look for treats made with all natural ingredients. Listed below are some of my favorite dog treats (and my dog Xena totally agress!) and where you can purchase them.
The following can be found locally at Petco:
Charlee Bear Treats
Freeze Dried Beef Liver Treats
Organix Dog Cookies
Eagle Pack Holistix Biscuits
Newman's Own Organic Dog Treats
Natural Balance Roll-A-Rounds
Natural Balance Potato & Duck Treats
Solid Gold L.A. Treats
Solid Gold Tiny Tots
Old Mother Hubbard Dog Biscuits
The treats below can be bought online or at Dave's Soda & Pets in Hadley or Pethingz in Littleton or Especially For Pets in Acton

Lots of good treats from Sitstay.com
The following are treats I would try to stay away from:
Beggin' Strips, Pupperoni, Snausages, Canine Carryouts, rawhide, Ol' Roy products, and Greenies. See related link on the dangers of Greenies. I did see they have a new version of Greenies out that may not present the same hazards but I wouldn't rush to buy them until they've been out a while.
