About Plato Pet Treats

Plato Pet Treats was founded on the premise that dogs are family members and pet parents should feel good about what they give their dogs. Because of this philosophy, Plato treats ensures all treats are “wag worthy” – made only with natural ingredients. All treats are slow-baked in-house, unlike other treats that are loaded with fillers and packed with calories, sugar, molasses, maple syrup, corn or wheat. Each Plato Pet ingredient can be traced back to its original source. Products include Plato Pet Treats Real Strips, Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil, Thinker Sticks Treats and new Small Bites.

    I already know my dogs LOVE the salmon strips. I used to work at a pet store in Wisconsin and I was always recommending these products to customers. I LOVE that the treats are made in the USA. People are very skeptical of products made in other countries, so it was wonderful to be able to have a treat I felt comfortable recommending. I wish I had known then about all the charity work they do! That would’ve made it an even easier sell. 🙂
