Large Biscuit/Cookie Recommendations?

Hi all -

Can anyone recommend a large biscuit/cookie brand that uses decent ingredients?

I want to be able to give Cassie a large biscuit for her to munch on as a nice treat. But all of the ones that have acceptable ingredients always seem to come in bite size. And all the big ones I can find are individually packaged.

Back when I was growing up, before the internet and all, we used to give our golden Milk Bones. They had ones that were a nice size for our dogs. But now thanks to the internet, I know that Milk Bones aren't exactly the best treat for my Cassie.

I know I could always give her multiple small cookies to get the equivalent treat, but I really want to give her something she can take back to her place and munch on.

Thanks!

I give Molly Buddy Biscuits. I also give her "holistic" cookies from the bulk section at specialty pet stores. Most specialty stores list the ingredients for everything they sell in bulk and they are all made in the US. She gets one a day at bedtime.. after I brush my teeth she is always expecting me to say "bed time snack".

You could bake your own and use giant cookout cutters to make them. I did for my last golden

I do what I like and like what I do. Yorkies- Cozy (4/1/06), Roxy & Zoey (2/11/08), Lucy (4/6/09); Golden- Buddy (4/13/09- Rescued 12/11) Maine Coon cats- Mika (1998) and Tallulah (2000)

I like to make my own too, that way I can grate up carrots, zucchini, ect and Ky gets her veggies. Bentley will eat veggies alone but not Ky.
