Billy + Margot specializes in creating a variety of snacks for pets, but one of its most interesting products is a Popcorn for Dogs.

The popcorn is made with 100% air-popped popcorn that has been seasoned with seaweed. This separates it from human-grade popcorn snacks, which are often popped in oil and seasoned with butter, salt and sugar -- none of which are ideal for sharing with dogs. As an alternative, the 100% whole grain and gluten-free snacks are ideal for treating pets to a healthy snack. As Billy + Margot notes: "Because grains are cheaper than meat, pet food manufacturers have been bulking their feed with more and more grains." When consumed in moderation, the air-popped popcorn snacks are not harmful to a pet's balanced diet.

There are now plenty of pet treats being created that take inspiration from human snacks, including beer, cakes, cookies, tea and ice cream.
