Default Beggin Strips..USA or China?

Someone told me that they are made in China, then someone else said they are made in the USA,
Milo's jerky is the Purina brand made in China...tried to look it up, found various answers, it says
on the bag they are from Missouri, but then read somewhere the ingredients came from China.
I don't intend to buy any more but I do have a package left. Any opinions? ....Thanks.

Because you are asking...I will say that I personally would not give my dog Beggin Strips, no matter where they are made. IMO, too many of our pet food & treats come from China (a good deal of our food, too). I do not trust the giant corporations to use quality ingredients in the food or treats.

I believe they are made in china but ditributed thru a US company in the US. So the bag is able to say distributed in xxxxcity,XXstate. I believe somewhere it has to still say made in or produce or manufactured in china in very tiny print. Its a sneaky way companies have found to get around saying made in china in huge print. I could be mistaken and thinking of a different treat. But i also agree the the preious comment made regardless i wouldnt feed it to my dog.

Would you ever consider trying something like plain chicken, carrot slices, blueberries, etc? Unadulterated whole foods can be nutritious snacks and many dogs love them. My little foster dog is on a very limited diet but can have egg white which is her special treat when I leave in the morning and just before bed. She gets just about 1/10th of an egg white at a time which I cut into tiny pieces and it thrills her, lol.

Have you looked up the ingredients.
They have BHA which is a known cancer causing agent.

Please look up what you are giving your dog.
They are pure junk. Though touted by the company as so very wonderful..

Perphaps try the dehydrated chicken or beef live the sell in the treat section those are ones that Ive never seen any dog resist.

Also i use the natural balance food rolls as a treat. I just slice them and cut into pieces. I think i end up getting alot more for my money doing this as well. Dog Food Roll Formulas - Natural Balance Pet Foods

I agree. It's all food coloring, corn syrup, starch and artificial colors and flavors.

If they must eat some treat like that, but them beef jerky made for humans...assuming you can even find any with no corn syrup in it.
