Frequently Asked Questions
My Dog Has Allergies…Can I Still Feed These Treats?
Four Leaf Clover sources ingredients between small family farms in Virginia and certified organic ingredients that are carefully researched. We NEVER use grains, corn, soy, by-products, preservatives, artificial ingredients, or low quality meats such as chicken meal or factory farmed meats - These are the ingredients that are most likely to cause inflammation and trigger allergies. At Four Leaf Clover, we stick with ingredients that are packed with antioxidants, omega fatty acids, natural probiotics, and fiber. Therefore, Four Leaf Clover treats are not likely to trigger allergies. However, every dog is different and it’s best to monitor your dog when feeding something new.
How Do You Ensure Quality Control?
Every product recipe is thoroughly tested at Tentamus Labs located in Fredericksburg VA for a guaranteed analysis, nutritional analysis, and quality assurance. Additionally, every product is hand crafted in small batches in our very own human-grade, inspected commercial kitchen located at 9 N 5th Street Warrenton VA. Four Leaf Clover abides by all human-grade standards. Lastly, the owner and founder, Clarissa Dery, is a Certified Canine Nutritionist and has extensive knowledge on biologically appropriate nutrition for dogs! We have incredibly high standards and go above and beyond for the well-being of dogs! At Four Leaf Clover, you know you’re getting top of the line holistic dog treats!
What Is The Shelf Life Of Your Products?
We do NOT use any synthetic preservatives or artificial ingredients. We stick with REAL food. Therefore, our treats are not meant to sit on a shelf for years and years. As nature intended, real living food eventually dies and so do our treats.
All biscuits (besides Stella's Super Food Biscuits) are best kept refrigerated. They all last approximately 2 months in the refrigerator or 6 months in the freezer. Stella's Super Food Biscuits are shelf stable for 2 months with the bag kept sealed - Shelf life can be extended by putting them in the refrigerator.
Four Leaf Clover Horse Treats: can last up to 2 weeks with the lid tightly sealed or 2 months in the refrigerator.
Raw Goat's Milk: 8 months in the freezer or 7 days in the refrigerator.
Probiotic Ice Cream for Dogs: can last 6 months in the freezer and 1 week in the refrigerator.
Dehydrated & Freeze-Dried Treats: can last up to a year due to the fact that they are either dehydrated or freeze dried and the moisture is gone (getting these treats wet will shorten their shelf life).
Herbal Supplements (Happy Tummies Probiotic or Healthy Joints Mobility Aid): Up to one year stored in a cool dry location with the lid tightly sealed. Keep products away from excessive heat and moisture.
