Most dog owners know that chocolate is not good for dogs, but why?  The reason is that chocolate containstheobromine, a natural stimulant. Ingestion of chocolate by a dog can lead in increased urination,diarrhea, and hyperactivity.  If the dogeats a toxic amount of chocolate, it can lead to irregular heartbeat, muscletwitching, seizures, and death.   The quantity that is toxic depends on thesize and age of the dog and type of chocolate. Basically the sweeter the chocolate, the less theobromine it has.  Of course, it’s best to feed your dog safeand healthy treats.  Carob is a safechocolate substitute for dogs.  Carob isa natural sweetener with a taste similar to chocolate.  Carob is combined with saturated fats to makecarob chips and powders that are used in our “Carob chip cookies” and “MuddyPaws” treats.  Since carob has fewercalories than cocoa, think of giving it a try in your favourite recipes.  All our treats are wheat, corn, and soy free.  Tehy are also baked soft to preserve flavour and make them easy to eat.
