She's a smart girl to know that she doesn't get the treat for her late night run.
Like Kenzi's apple, banana, etc., I don't even want to start with Krypto thinking that he can have food when we are eating. If we do something once, he thinks that's how it should be all that time, so I'm very careful about that.
He gets non-dog food items, such as popcorn, plain yogurt, etc. either in his dish, or from us directly, but not when we are eating, or near our food.
So far, so good, he sleeps through our meals, but even if he doesn't, he just does his own thing, and doesn't watch us eat, pester, etc.
That's how I feel about Greenies, rawhide, etc. I gave Greenies for a very short time, after the vets gave them to their patients, then learned that they were dangerous, and never gave them again.
I don't give commercial type animal parts, so will take your word on the salt. I do know that there are other unsavory things that they sometimes have added to them, have been soaked in, etc.
I'm so glad that you found that food for Beau & Thomas.
Love All Life, Thank You For Posting! :)
