Dog treats discovered in a Wisconsin rest area
I'll talk to anyone; you never know what you'll learn and what fun stories you'll hear. This time, I learned about Bezoars Buffalo Bites for pets when stopped at a rest area.

Having spent a large part of my life traveling, I always look forward to the adventures and the people I meet along the way. On a trip to Fort Wayne, Ind., for a dog show, my friend and I stopped at a rest area in Wisconsin to exercise dogs and people.
While walking the dogs, a car from Montana pulled in and parked next to us. As I walked back to the vehicle, I saw a magnetic sticker that said "Bezoars Buffalo Bites, Amazing Treats for Dogs and Cats." If you know me, you know there is no way I can resist finding out about their business and why they are in Wisconsin.
The ladies, Kristin Anderson and Pamela Meck, were on a cross-country trip to visit family and friends on the eastern seaboard and as luck would have it, they had treats with them that our dogs absolutely loved. These retired nurses wanted to create treats that were healthy for their own companions and it has blossomed into a cottage industry.
The dog and cat treats are made from bison raised in the Bitterroot Valley of Western Montana. The bison used in Bezoars Buffalo Bites is human grade and grass fed. Meck and Anderson add ground organic oats and organic ground flax seed to enhance the nutritional value of the treats. To provide an excellent product, the treats are baked at federally recommended temperature guidelines to kill bacteria. Bison is naturally high in Omega 3 fatty acids, beta-carotene, iron, zinc and B vitamins. The analysis of the treats conducted at Montana State University show the following results: crude protein 68.4 percent, crude fiber 1.5 percent, crude fat 15.6 percent and moisture 6.7 percent.
Our dogs love these treats and give them two paws up; your pets will love them, too!
