What pup's going to turn down this beefy treat?My friend came up with these little meatball treats for Tony, his new puppy. They have protein, brown rice, a lot of nutritious vegetables and turmeric to aid digestion. Make sure they're completely cooled before serving them to your pup!-RachAlways check with your vet about which foods are appropriate for you to share with your pet.
