yuck, double yuck, but I haven't eaten a meat hot dog in a decade. My dogs eat veggie dogs and liverwurst for treats lol Ooops! well they did until we stopped the fatty treats now it is just green beans.
My father did this medical study about hot dogs (pork) and the nitrites that are in them. If you bury a hot dog, you can find traces of it in the dirt 7 years later because of those nitrites. I assume those lil weenies are the same hahaha

I'm curious how they determined this. Did they actually bury a hot dog for seven years and then exume it? Or is it an educated guess based on something else? Inquiring minds want to know.

Those type of treats don't hold up well in my pockets....I use them to worm my barn (feral) cats because they are squishy and mushy and I can force medication into them. I've never considered putting them in my pocket for training...ewwee

My dad loves them with mustard, I suppose if he ever gets to the age that I have to force medication on him, I can keep that in mind......

Training treats is what I meant. I've had them before, they aren't bad. 59 cents a can and I think there are 6 or 7 in it. LOL. Piper likes them, but she likes just about anything.

Yeah, they're not very 'pocket friendly' for sure.

I am assuming they use a decomposition algorithm or something. I'll have to ask. I just know he did it in the 90's and I haven't touched one since.

I haven't used them in much volume. I have a dog who loves them as one of her tracking rewards.

When I was a kid, my Mom gave me those as a snack after school. I loved them. One day at the store after I was grown, i picked up a can and read the ingedients. Mechanically separated chicken parts?!? What is that? Roadkill?!? This generated a call to my Mom.
