Foodieos were originally created as a NON-NUT TREAT for my naked B&G, Lola. They can be cut in half or quarters as a TRAINING AID. I have also used them in the flock's regular dinner MEALs. Another clever use is to use them as RX AIDS! If you are uncomfortable syringing medications or just want another way to deliver the dose, syringe it onto the Foodieo flavor of your choice and it will quickly absorb!
