Last year’s pet food contamination scare has many people wary of what’s in their best friends’ food. The good news is that there are safe, less-processed alternatives out there for both daily feed and in-between snacks. Here are a few organic dog treats that are not only tasty, but healthy too. Our panel of canine judges (see Image Gallery) rated each on a scale of one (yummy) to five (delicious!) paws.

Vida Organic Treats, Skin and Coat Formula

These little fish-shaped cookies were a big hit, even without preservatives, salt, corn or wheat. Salmon and evening primrose oils rich in omega-3 fatty acids are touted to relieve itchy winter skin.

Organix Dog Cookies

We asked our judges for comments on these chicken-flavored cookies, but all we got was crunching. Made with chicken, barley, peas and brown rice (all organic); also available in peanut butter flavor.

Organic Doggy Kitchen Treats

For the pampered pooch, Organic Doggy Kitchen bakes your order fresh prior to shipping. Sophisticated flavors include peanut butter biscotti and apple cinnamon molasses. Vegetarian options are available.

Uneek 100% Organic Dog Treats

Our judges tested Uneek’s Pizza Crust and Beagle Bites. And because they’re made with human-grade ingredients, such as organic oregano and tomato sauce, a few editors joined in the fun. (Not bad!)
