About Our Treats

Do I need to consult my vet prior to feeding my pet a treat from Tarts & Tails?

Consulting your veterinarian is always a great idea. They will have your dog’s full medical history and best understand their unique needs.

What makes your ingredients different from other brands?

We use only fresh, whole-food ingredients that meet USDA standards for human consumption. We do not use feed-grade ingredients, meat meals, or artificial additives in our products. We also follow each of the rigorous state requirements for ingredients analyses, manufacturing, and labeling.

Where and how are Tarts & Tails’ treats made?

Tarts & Tails started in our owner’s small home kitchen. Today our treats are made in a small commercial kitchen space outside of Dallas, Texas. Our treats are made in small batches and packaged by hand to ensure the freshest product possible.

Have you checked the labels on your dog’s food and treats?

The ingredients in our Tarts & Tails treats are simple and easy on the tongue. We use ingredients that even young children can pronounce, and many are sourced locally. So, what’s in our special recipe, you ask? Below are some of our star ingredients and the benefits they bring to the table.
