"If your pet has a food allergy, such as wheat, any other type of flour can be used. I've made these many times and everyone loves them. A lot less expensive than store-bought, plus you know what goes into them."

"I made these for my friends who have dogs and they were a great success. I included a copy of the recipe with the biscuits for them to make their own."

"Wheat isn't good for dogs. I've made similar using brown rice flour."
