Gunner, I stopped buying pupperoni and started buying human beef sticks, specifically ones from Kroger because he loves puppperoni and had ingredients I thought harmful. He has a sensitive tummy also. They where beef, not chicken.

I wouldnt give anything to him that had Onion or onion extract in it. Will not take the chance with that. Garlic also can be toxic to dogs and cause anemia. There is garlic in alot of treats also. I have to read the ingredients in EVERYTHING I buy. I have ended up taking stuff back to the store. So I make sure I save my self a trip back to the store and the Health of my dog and read ALL ingredients before I Buy. Soy is also another health concern for Bulldogs, most bulldogs are allergic to soy. I Buy all Natural treats and snacks usually from the Pet or Feed Store.

Dear Cassandra,

Thank you for your e-mail sharing your concerns regarding onion extract in Pup-Peroni Dog Snacks. We're glad you took the time to contact us.

We do use very low levels of onion extract in some of our dog food and dog snack recipes. Onion extract is a GRAS ingredient (FDA 'Generally Recognized As Safe' ingredient list) for use in dog foods.

You're correct in that raw onions and dried onion powder contain a group of compounds called thiosulfates that have been associated with changes is red blood cells, which is the reason that onions are considered by some to be a risk to cats and dogs. However, we use onion extract rather than the onion powder. Onion extract does not contain these thiosulfate compounds. There is no risk from the low level of onion extract present in our products, including Pup-Peroni.

Thanks again for contacting us. We are vitally concerned with the health and well-being of pets. You can be assured your comments will be forwarded to the appropriate people in our company. As a way of thanking you, we're sending coupons in the postal mail. If we can be of any further assistance, please don't hesitate to call our toll-free number, 1-800-252-7022.
