Milk-Bone Reviews show BAD NEWS
I was looking to see if Milk-Bones are bad for dogs and these are the reviews I found........
I have been finding flying insects around Milk Bones. Finally I opened one and found it infested with small worms that I am certain evolved into flying insects. I can't believe they are selling that garbage.
I have been giving my corgi and jack russel terrier milk bones for several years. But I just opened a new box and it was infested with worms. I am furious. I will never buy their product again!!!
My rating is zero stars. I have been giving my dog the large milk bones for the past 5 years, Two of my last three purchases of the large milk bones have been very upsetting. After a problem with one box I removed the milk bones and placed them in sealed plastic continers. Why?? becaus the first of my last htree purchases had inch worms come out of th bones. Now, two boxes later it is infested with inch worms again. And of course I did see them and my dog has already eaten a few.
The fourth ingredient listed in on the label is: DRIED DIGEST OF POULTRY BY-PRODUCT..... need I say more? Isn't that chicken poo????? GROSS!
Disgusting Treat. I was going to go into what ingredients were bad, but i would've had to describe every single ingedient on the box! Just becuase it is a name brand treat, does not mean that it is healthy. If its advertised on tv, its not a good food/treat. Do not settle for a dog treat just because its cheap.
Milk bones are full of junk
HORRIBLE ingredients....don't smell good at all, might as well give your dog cardboard.
They're dogs...they will eat anything..it's my job to read the boxes and know what is good to feed them and what is not.... This one is a definate NO!!
my dogs get loose stools that are nice and colorful- needles to say I no longer buy the Milk Bones
Just thought you dog lovers should know

Just to comment a little (although I'm not a huge fan of milkbones)...
Those little flying bugs/grubs? Are in well... pretty much anything in grain! They only difference is that usually things don't stick around long enough for the life-cycle to finish. It doesn't matter how good that company is - it just happens. Sealing doesn't help.. they're there before processing.
Sounds like those milkbones have been hanging around to long - on a shelf or warehouse somewhere!
Dried poultry digest is material made when animal tissue is cleaned from chemicals or enzymes. It is important to realize it does not include things like hair, feathers, hooves/claws etc. Cream of the crop? No... but it IS milkbones! Just like with food, generally you have to pay more to get the better product. Chicken poo it is not though.
You do tend to get what you pay for and to be honest - I don't think any of us have to look at the ingredients on the box to realize its mostly filler and "garbage" grains. Thats why their marketed and used as treats. They are just suposed to be tasty - like potato chips.
If you want a milkbone alternative there are a ton of homemade recipies out there, and they aren't hard to make either (unless you want to get fancy with cutters )

Most (not all) treats you find in grocery stores will be garbage. Read the label. Also any edibles Made in China is up for questioning. You have to be very careful. I only go into the pet section at grocery stores for beds, toys, and clothes I would never buy anything made from Hartz, Milkbone, Purina, and the list goes on.
I think a few things made from Newman's Own is semi-OK and that brand is sold at grocery stores. Like I said, read the label.

Milk bone review
Just found this information online:
Where?s the Beef? Why your dog should never eat another Milk-Bone or Beggin Strip, and you should avoid the Slim Jims. | Dirty Popcorn
I would never give my dog this treat
