DIY pet treats: economical, easy and nutritious
(BPT) - Many families are struggling to find time to sit down together for a meal these days so it may seem funny that more people are making time to bake treats for their pets. But pets are gaining status in the family hierarchy, according to a Harris Interactive study. In fact, more than 90 percent of pet owners say their pets are an official member of the family. Twenty-four percent say they frequently cook specifically for their pets.
Dedicated pet owners have been making treats for their furry buddies since the 1800s, according to Chef Noel Ridsdale, culinary academic director at The Art Institute of Tucson.
He adds that in the last five to seven years, the number of people making pet treats has taken off. “There are many reasons for this, but I think it is the attitude that people have taken with their pets. It seems that over the past 20 years or so, pets have almost become another child in the house. So with this change in behavior toward our pets, it only makes sense that we would now want to feed them better."
