10 Easy and All-Natural Treats for Dogs We all know that all dogs love treats. But have you ever thought about what your pet’s choice snack contains? Some dog treats are loaded with preservatives that can harm your pet’s health (for example, BHT, TBHQ, HA, Ethoxyquin, and Propyl Gallate). These additional ingredients can irritate dog allergies, cause bothersome coat and skin conditions, and even be more harmful than useful. Here are 10 all-natural, healthy treats you can provide your dog with, instead of giving him store-bought snacks. Cabbage
What You Should Know About Dogs This Year
A cruciferous vegetable, cabbage helps to fight cancer. Try to steam some cabbage and include it in your dog’s dinner–however, add just a little so you don’t cause flatulence or upset his stomach. Too much cabbage causes gas.
A 10-Point Plan for Dogs (Without Being Overwhelmed)
Frozen sardines These little fish are delicious and rich in omega oils. Since they’re tiny, you can feed them whole. Freeze them for a crunchy, cool little treat. Pumpkin Few things taste better than pumpkin. Add pumpkin to your pet’s diet for a healthy amount of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, omega fatty acids, fiber, and riboflavin. But ensure you feed him roasted/steamed pumpkin as pumpkin pie contains plenty of harmful preservatives as well as refined sugar. Quinoa This ancient grain is perfect for dogs that are sensitive to grain and is good for settling an upset stomach, just like brown rice. Apples Most dogs love tasty, crispy slices of apple. This is all good because apples have vitamin C, vitamin K, calcium, as well as pectin (solution fiber). However, get rid of the seeds and core because they contain harmful substances called cyanogenic glycosides. Carrots Pack one or two baby carrots for a great dog treat on the go. You can also cook the carrots, pound them and add to your dog’s supper for a healthy, delicious addition. You can also refrigerate some young carrots for a tasty, cool treat that’ll naturally clean your pet’s teeth. Options abound. Cheese Most dogs really like cheese, making it perfect for rewarding your pet after training. But mind the calories and remember that softer, unripe cheeses are extremely likely to lead to stomach upsets. Dried apricots Dry apricots are a tasty, healthy treat ideal for indulging your pet’s sweet tooth. Mind the size of portion though. Dried apricots have all the nutrients contained in fresh ones but don’t have water, so only feed bits to prevent stomach upsets. Watermelon Watermelon contains lots of lycopene, which is an antioxidant that fights cancer and maintains healthy eyes as well. Sweet potato Sweet potatoes are sweet as well as nutritious. They have B vitamins, vitamin C, potassium, niacin, and magnesium. You may serve dry sweet potato treats or steam and make them part of your dog’s supper.
