10 Simple, All-Natural Dog Treats
It’s no secret that all dogs adore 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.
The following are ten 100% natural, healthy treats you can feed your dog, rather than feed him store-bought snacks.
A cruciferous vegetable, cabbage helps to fight cancer. Try steaming some cabbage and add it to your pet’s dinner–add only a little though, so you don’t upset his stomach or cause flatulence. Excess cabbage will cause gas.
These small fish contain lots of omega oils and are tasty. Due to their tiny size, you can feed sardines whole. Keep them in your freezer for a crunchy, chilly little treat.
Few things are as delicious as cooked 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.
This ancient grain is perfect for dogs that are sensitive to grain and is good for settling an upset stomach, just like brown rice.
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). But remove the seeds as well as core because they have harmful stuff called cyanogenic glycosides.
Pack 1-2 baby carrots for a perfect dog treat while you’re on the move. You can also cook the carrots, pound them and add to your dog’s supper for a healthy, delicious addition. You can also freeze a few baby carrots to get a sweet, cool treat that will clean your pet’s teeth naturally. There are lots of options.
Most dogs just love some cheese, which makes it a perfect reward for training. But check those calories and remember that unripe softer cheeses are highly likely to bring stomach upsets.
Dry apricots are a tasty, healthy treat ideal for indulging your pet’s sweet tooth. However, mind the size of portion. Dried apricots contain all of the nutrients in fresh ones but lack water, so only feed small portions to stop stomach upsets.
Watermelon contains a lot of lycopene, an antioxidant that maintains healthy eyes and helps to fight cancer as well.
Sweet potatoes are nutritious and tasty. They contain B vitamins, vitamin C, niacin, magnesium, and potassium. You can serve your dog dry sweet potato treats, or steam them and add to your his supper.
