Dogs treats today are filled with ingredients that are not meant for canine consumption. Dogs survive on meats. In the wild, dogs hunted their prey and consumed nothing but raw meat. Their stomachs had no need to process grains or hormones or additives, because they did not eat any of those nutrients, so most dogs are not equipped with the digestive enzymes to process non-raw meat foods.
Most companies offer dog treats that were made in mills that fed their animals grains, hormones, and other unnatural ingredients. These same nutrients are then passed on in your dog treats, causing stomach discomfort, itching, allergies and ill health. Even 100% meat, natural dog treats may still contain traces of grains other unwanted ingredients due to these ingredients being fed to these animals unnaturally.
Riddick's does dog treats differently and here is why:
USA Regulations Regarding Animal Product Manufacturing
Your dog is a member of the family, and like any family member it deserves the very best when it comes to what it puts inside its stomach. That is why the United States has stringent regulations and guidelines regarding how companies in the USA can manufacture and sell their dog treats. The FDA acts as watchdog to companies in the United States that manufacture and distribute pet foods. Some of these rules include:
- All dog treats must have truthful labeling of their ingredients and nutritional facts
- All dog treats must have ingredients listed from most to least
- All dog treats must be produced under safe conditions
- All dog treats must be safe to eat
- All dog treats must contain no harmful substances
These rules are designed to ensure that you are feeding your pet the very best in dog treats and dog foods – treats designed to keep your dog happy and healthy.
Regulations in Other Countries
Many other countries do not have the same regulations as dog treats made in the USA. In 2007, millions of pet food products were recalled from store shelves, because Chinese companies and other foreign manufacturers were pumping these foods with melamine, a chemical used to make plastics.
Most countries do not have the strict regulations that the USA does on regulating their pet food products. That is why if you truly want to make sure that your pet is getting the natural ingredients that it needs to stay healthy, make sure that your dog treats say they are made in the USA.

Why Choose Free Range, Pasture Fed Dog Treats?
Your dog should only be eating food and treats made from free range, pasture fed animals. These animals are fed only the foods they were meant to eat, and are allowed to roam and graze freely so that they experience none of the harmful effects of meat mills.

These treats will be gentle on your pet’s stomach without any of the allergic reactions that most dogs experience with grain fed animals.
Your dog cannot tell you when it is experiencing stomach discomfort from the dog treats that cause allergies. Yet most liver treats contain ingredients that are unnatural to your pet.
