Durango, Colo. (Jan. 11, 2013) â€“ Zuke's, makers of all-natural, American-made performance pet treats, is proud to reiterate its commitment to providing the highest quality pet performance nutrition from only the best and safest ingredients. In an effort to keep pets happy, healthy and active, Zuke's selects the finest and most premium fruits, vegetables, oils and meats, including U.S.-sourced chicken.
In response to the New York Department of Agriculture and Market's findings of unapproved antibiotics in jerky treats produced in China, a number of popular pet treat brands have recalled their chicken jerky dog treats. Zuke's takes pride in sourcing the protein for its pet treats from qualified suppliers in the U.S. and other reputable countries with high quality standards, like New Zealand, supplier of the company's rabbit and venison.
â€œZuke's was born on the foundation of healthy, made-in-the-USA ingredients to give pets the best possible treats,â€ said Zuke's Director of Business Development, Chris Meiering. â€œOur commitment to safety and quality has been at the core of the company since its inception in 1995.â€
Zuke's promises to continue its production of all-natural, made in the USA, performance pet treats aimed at increasing pets' health, happiness and activeness. For a healthy and safe jerky treat alternative, Zuke's recommends Z-Filets, a grain-free, domestically sourced and manufactured choice. Z-Filets support peak performance, strength and vitality with the power of over 80-percent pure chicken, beef and New Zealand venison. Antioxidant-rich herbs such as rosemary, sage and turmeric are added to season the high protein and extremely tasty snack. Like all Zuke's treats, the USA-made Z-Filets do not contain corn, wheat or soy.
