Now that we’ve established that chewing is second nature to our lovable fur babies, we know satiating that desire is top priority. Just about as top priority as the goodies they consume.
Assuming you are a normal person, you probably love your pet and want what’s best for them. These fuzzy family members of ours unfortunately only have a lifespan of approximately 13 years. In light of this information, we want to make sure they live as many of those years as possible. How do you do that? Through a healthy and balanced diet, of course. And what is put in your dog treats will make a world of difference to the quality of your dog’s life.
Treats & Food
So, how do you find the best dog treat? Read the food label. Avoid additives like artificial flavorings and colors, which can only lead to medical issues down the road. Shoot for grain-free and natural foods. Our favorites are the Stewart Pro-Treat Beef Liver Freeze-Dried Dog Treats. They’re 100% pure beef liver, containing just one ingredient. The fewer the ingredients, the closer to a whole food, the better. In the wild, your dog is not going to harvest and munch on oats (a grain). They’re going to hunt and prey on other animals (meat). It only makes sense to follow a diet that comes naturally to them.
And don’t stop at just the treats. Taste of the Wild is a great brand of dog food that you can feel good about feeding your dog child. They have a vast assortment of meals, so even the pickiest dog can find their favorite. You can also select based on the nutrition needs of your dog. For instance, if you’re trying to build muscle for a working dog, you would want to choose a variety with a higher protein content. All of that information is listed on the back of the bag. Companies like Taste of the Wild make it very easy to be an informed dog parent, helping you make strides towards a happier, healthier, and hopefully longer lifestyle for your best friend.
