Speak Your Mind



  1. Now that our family has finally figured out how to make it routine to produce both a turkey and tofurky thanksgiving dinner, there’s enough family cooking bandwidth to turn to the pet treats. I have one grandpup who would love these–especially anything with peanut butter. would these be OK for the rabbit (he has a marked preference for kale. or raisins].

      Hi Penpen.  I’m not a veterinarian, so I don’t know if these cookies would be suitable for the rabbit.  To be on the safe side, I would contact your local vet, and inquire.  Thanks for stopping by, and I hope that you whip up a batch for your grandpup.
