Healthy Dog Treats

Sunday, October 10, 2021
posted by Jim Murphy

Most people give their dog treats, three or more at a time. Store bought dog treats contain lots of sugar and calories.

Try Veggies and Fruit

You can try giving your pooch a carrot, or maybe some broccoli or green beans. These snacks have virtually no calories. Dogs don’t care if their snack is meaty and fatty or a healthy vegetable. They just want you to give them something. Dogs are open to all foods so vegetables are a great alternative to traditional dog treats bought in the store.  You can also try fruits like banana slices, berries, apple slices and even watermelon.

Steer clear of grapes, raisins, onions, chocolate and anything with caffeine. These can be toxic to dogs. Skip anything that is hard like bones, antlers or hooves. Dog treats should always be easy on your dog’s teeth.

Exercise is also key. Buy your best friend some dog toys, take him outside and toss them around on a regular basis.

Remember, pets are family.
