The good thing is that there are now a lot of natural treats available for your pet. However, some of these natural treats can still contain starch, which isn’t really the best ingredient. So what can you do to make sure that you are feeding good treats to your dog and making sure that they area kept healthy? Below are some tips:
- Don’t Give Your Pet Too Much Treats – Treats, even if they are natural and healthy, shouldn’t be given too often. Try to limit giving your dog treats, and do it only when you feel that they should be rewarded for their behavior. Treats aren’t exactly the main source of nutrition for your pet so too much of it can lead to obesity.
- Choose High-Quality Treats – When buying dog treats, make sure that it doesn’t contain grains or fillers, added sugar like honey or molasses, and other chemicals and preservatives.
- Prepare Your Own – You can also try to make the treats yourself. For example, you can use chicken strips as a treat and make them as chicken jerky. To do this, you can just slice chicken breasts into thin strips and bake them for approximately three hours at 180 degrees.
