Good Treats

We strive to improve our health with the healthy, nutritious food we eat. Our cherished and adored dogs deserve the same! This blog post will take a look at what we should be giving our fluffy companions to ensure they stay in tip-top shape.

The 10% Rule

Just like us, dogs love treats! And like us, it is important to not overindulge on those treats as the high intake of calories can create health risks. Especially with treats high in fat, and offer little nutritional value.

Treats & Snacks should only make up 10% of a dog’s daily calories. This can vary from dog to dog, so next time you’re at the vet, ask what a healthy amount of treats are for your pooch, as it could vary based on levels of activity, breed and types of treats. Daily feeding directions: Give 1-2 treats per 10 pounds of dog’s weight.

What should we avoid?

While you shop, do you ever take a peak at the back of your cereal box to see exactly what you will be putting in your body? Well here are the things to avoid when looking at the back of your dogs treats.

  • Corn syrup 
  • Artificial Colors & Preservatives
  • Xylitol or any other sugar alcohols 
  • Excessive Salt 
  • Propylene glycol
  • Brewer’s Rice
  • Nitrates or nitrites 
  • Vegetable Oil

Why is dog nutrition so important?

It is important to care for your dog properly, this includes good nutrition. This is important because it reduces the risk of many illnesses. A good diet will prolong your dog’s life, and improve his or her quality while keeping them healthy and strong.
Here is a list of all the benefits your pups will receive by eating healthy!
