“Because of recent increases in dog allergies, many people are looking for corn-free, wheat-free and gluten-free dog food."
Meridian, Idaho (PRWEB) December 16, 2011
Jos Zamzow, chief operating officer of Dynamite Specialty Products here, will talk about Canine Cookies, a wheat-free, corn-free all-natural dog biscuit, on the nationally syndicated My Buddy Butch radio show on Monday at 7 p.m. EST (4 p.m. PST).
The all-natural dog treat was introduced earlier this year.
“Because of recent increases in dog allergies, many people are looking for corn-free, wheat-free and gluten-free dog food,” Zamzow said. “Dog treats with cereal grains such as wheat and corn cause a variety of dog allergies, including itchy skin and ears, and excessive weight gain.
The My Buddy Butch show runs on radio stations, including satellite radio, in selected markets across the nation. It also can be heard on the Internet at mybuddybutch.com.
“We had requests for healthy dog biscuits because so many dog treats have questionable ingredients, including chemical preservatives such as BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole), BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene) and ethoxyquin,” Zamzow explained. “Several dog trainers who use our all-natural, gluten-free dog food, asked us for an easy-to-feed healthy dog treat to use in training.”
The gluten-free dog food, as well as all other Dynamite animal feeds, is formulated according to standards of the American Association of American Feed Control Officials, Inc. The paw-shaped, natural dog biscuits cost $19.95 for a 2.5-pound bag.
A family-owned business that has specialized in animal nutrition for four generations, Dynamite Specialty Products makes products for virtually every member of the animal kingdom. It has long developed all-natural dog food and nutritional supplements for show dogs across the country and prize-winning racehorses. Its specialists in dog nutrition and animal nutrition can recommend exactly what vitamins, minerals and other supplements best support dogs with allergies, horses with laminitis, cats whose owners make their own food, and cows with digestive issues.
Dynamite has worked with veterinarians and university researchers to produce specialty foods to correct nutritional deficiencies in animals ranging from Canadian muskoxen to peregrine falcons to zoo exotics.
Dynamite uses only natural ingredients, made in the United States for better quality control. Throughout its history of making natural dog food, it has always looked at alternatives to animal by-products, antibiotics, chemical preservatives, fumigants, artificial coloring and other additives that have later caused dog allergies and other health problems. Its manufacturing processes are so stringently controlled that Dynamite has a separate mill to produce feed for herbivores, such as horses and poultry that are especially sensitive to contamination from meat needed by other species such as dogs and cats.
Dynamite has manufacturing facilities in Idaho and Iowa.
