When you're gazing into adorable puppy eyes, it's hard to resist giving your dog a treat. Unfortunately, many treats can hurt your pup's health. Some cause weight gain, and others are bad for digestion. Fortunately, those aren't the only treats around. If you put in a bit of research, it's easy to find delicious treats that will improve your dog's health.
Here are the best healthy dog treats to feed your pup.
1. Sweet Potato Fries
Brutus & Barnaby Sweet Potato Fries are no-sugar, no-fat, gluten-free, and grain-free snacks that your dog will love. Sweet potatoes might not be the first food that comes to mind when you imagine dog treats. Nonetheless, these fry-shaped goodies provide many of the nutrients your pup needs. Vitamin D, calcium, phosphorus, and B vitamins are abundant in sweet potatoes.
2. Bully Sticks
Brutus & Barnaby Bully Sticks contain pure beef from free-range cattle. We don’t add any dyes or chemical treatments, unlike the producers of many other dog treats. Your dog's teeth will thank you for a chance to gnaw on these natural snacks. If your pup needs low-fat protein, you'll find it here.
3. Pig Ears
Pig ears from Brutus & Barnaby are all natural. Full of flavor, the treats are baked to avoid excessive greasiness. The baking process also provides them with a satisfying crunch. They're low fat, making them a good source of protein for pups with a little extra heft. Employees inspect each pig ear three times to make sure that every morsel is top quality. Brutus & Barnaby never gets meat from companies that use added hormones or antibiotics in their pigs. Our treats don't go through added chemical treatments.
4. Beef Liver - Dog Food Topper
What should you do when your dog is reluctant to eat? Sprinkle Brutus & Barnaby Beef Liver Dog Food Topper over your pup's regular food, of course! These treats contain nothing but liver, so they're densely packed with many of the essential vitamins and minerals your furry friend needs. Liver provides vitamin A and several B vitamins: riboflavin, folate, and B12. Best of all, your canine pal will adore the savory flavor.
5. Omega 3 Chews
These tiny treats are like supplements for your dog, but they contain only whole foods and plants. They taste like chicken liver so that your pup will eat them right up. Omega 3 promotes a healthy coat and skin, improving the quality of life for dogs with dry skin. Omega 3 also improves heart health. These miniature treats are soft, so even dogs with dental problems can enjoy them.
With healthy dog treats, both you and your pup will feel great. You can reward your dog for good behavior — or even just for being your best buddy — without worrying about health consequences. Just choose one of the five healthy treats listed above!
