FAQ

Jax’s biscuits are made with only organic food suitable for human consumption but based on what is best for dogs.

Almond Flour:

Made from almonds, this gluten-free flour is rich in nutrients, fiber, and healthy fats and is low in carbohydrates.

Almond flour is made from ground almonds, blanched in boiling water to remove the skins, and then ground and sifted into fine flour.

This gluten-free flour is incredibly nutritious, low in carbohydrates, high in protein, rich in vitamin E, magnesium, and manganese, and an excellent source of prebiotics.

Brown rice flour:

Brown rice flour is a gluten-free, whole-grain flour. It contains calcium, folate, and zinc and is generally easy on the digestive system. It has a gritty texture and density, so we mix it with another flour when baking treats for your pup.

Chickpea Flour:

Chickpea flour comes from chickpeas (garbanzo beans). This flour contains protein and nutrients like vitamins B6 and B9, manganese, magnesium, copper, zinc, and selenium. Flours made from roasted chickpeas have a sweeter flavor, which your pup will love.

Coconut Flour:

Coconut flour is made from coconut flesh that has been dried and ground. It is naturally gluten-free, with a sweeter taste. It contains fats, carbohydrates, proteins, and beneficial vitamins and minerals.  Thanks to its low-carb and high-protein content, it is an excellent choice that can help your dog maintain a healthy weight.

  • A good source of lauric acid supports the immune system and thyroid and promotes healthy skin.
  • A good source of manganese is shown to support bone health, nervous system function, and thyroid health and helps to maintain optimal blood sugar levels.
  • Xylitol: Used as a sugar substitute in many foods, including chewing gum and some brands of peanut butter (a favorite dog snack), xylitol is highly toxic for dogs. Even a tiny amount can cause seizures, liver failure, and even death.
  • Sugar and corn syrup: Dogs process glucose similarly to humans and can result in the same problems we have from eating too much sugar, such as weight gain, tooth decay, and diabetes.
  • BHA and BHT: These commonly used preservatives have been proven to increase the risk of cancer in animals. Unfortunately, many famous dog treats contain BHA.

Calories are listed on the labeling for pet food as kilocalories or kcals.  Many manufacturers of dog treats add sugar or other sweeteners to their products as a flavor enhancer. Jax’s Biscuits never adds sugar or sweeteners to our treats.

Veterinarians advise that treats should not exceed 10 percent of a dog’s daily caloric intake.

Here is how to calculate:

  • Step 1: Divide your dog’s weight into pounds by 2.2.
  • Step 2: Multiply that number by 30.
  • Step 3: Add 70, giving you your dog’s daily calorie requirement.
  • Step 4: Multiply the total by 10%.

For example, Jax is a 50-pound dog whose daily calorie requirement is 750, and 10% of that would be 75. Therefore, our 50-pound dog should only be fed 75 calories worth of treats per day.
