JACKSON, Mo. - Veterinarians warn that human food is not good for dogs. That depends on the food. Miss Autumn's Barkery in Jackson, Missouri produces what it calls "people food for pets." The people who work at Miss Autumn's eat the dog food in their cafeteria.
Victoria McDowell is company president. She's developed recipes that combine taste and nutrition. The turkey and buffalo meat used is free of antibiotics and the vegetables are organically grown. A meal of Miss Autumn's gives a dog 76 vitamins and minerals.
One customer wrote McDowell saying the food saved her dog's life. A veterinarian commented that Miss Autumn's is the "Taj Mahal of dog food." Dogs have a choice of Turkey and Brown Rice, Turkey and Sweet Potato and a new Buffalo variety. It's the new top seller.
The company has added another all natural item, snack treats. Victoria McDowell says, "They're really tasty with a little butter on them." That's butter for you, not your dog.
