“Natural dog treats, that put a spring in your dog’s step!”
Why is natural the only way to treat your dog?
Why Natural Dog Treats?
As a dog owner, it’s only natural to want to treat your four-legged friend occasionally – But it’s important to give your dog natural dog chews. After all, what’s the point of offering a well-balanced meal, and then undoing all that goodness with unhealthy dog treats?
Reduce Allergic Triggers
If your pet has ever suffered from a food allergy, you will know how difficult it can be to diagnose and treat.
Food allergies in dogs can manifest in hives, itching of the skin, and swelling. However, in some cases, the symptoms involve the respiratory system. Coughing, sneezing, and/or wheezing with runny discharge from the eyes or nose.
Feeding a natural treat can reduce the chances of triggering a food allergy. This is because they do not contain ingredients like soy, wheat, or corn which are common triggers of canine allergies.
Low in Calories
It is important to remember that feeding treats should make up part of your dog’s diet. Your dog should receive a minimum of 90% of their daily calorie intake from their actual food – 10% or less should come from supplemental food or treats.
Keeping your dog in shape by cutting out on treats can be a little difficult for your furry ones. In such cases, opting for natural treats or dog snacks is a good option. A high percentage contains fewer calories compared to other conventional pet treats.
Improved Dental Health
Natural dog chews do not contain artificial sweeteners or other harmful chemicals. These additives can be detrimental to your pet’s oral health. Instead, they can help maintain healthy teeth and gums.
The rough texture of natural dog chews acts as a natural toothbrush. Plus, the action of chewing stimulates the production of saliva, flushing away bacteria and debris which would otherwise end up as plaque. Keeping their teeth and gums in healthy condition.
Highly processed treats cause irritation and create an imbalance in the gut flora. This gut flora is integral for a positive mood and good mental health.
Just like humans, your dog’s stomach, heart, and brain are sensitive to what they eat or drink. Any kind of imbalance can contribute to inflammation and stress, thus affecting them mentally.
The essential nutrients in a natural treat contribute to better digestion, lower risk of diseases, strong immunity, improved mobility, increased energy, and activity – leading to overall good physical and mental health.
Air dried natural treats like pigs’ ears are a proven long-lasting natural treat, as dogs love to chew it satisfies a natural instinct, mentally stimulating your dog, keeping them occupied, reducing boredom, and promoting calmness and well-being.
Improved Quality of life & longevity
The food that your pooch eats directly impacts how they look, act, behave and feel. Giving them 100% natural treats will lead to a healthy and shiny coat, ample energy to run and play, balanced weight to remain active and strong immunity to increase life expectancy.
Natural treats are natural medicine, for example, chicken feet and duck feet may not be the most attractive to look at, however they contain high levels of glucosamine and chondroitin which are the building blocks for healthy joints. All-natural treats contain essential vitamins and minerals that support muscle development, body functions, and aid mobility. Feeding natural treats to your pup and maintaining a natural diet from a young age will also ensure that your doggy remains fit and active throughout its life.
Natural dog chews come in all shapes and sizes. So, when you are looking a dog treat, keep in mind a few factors, your dog’s breed, size, and your dog’s age. These factors will determine the type of treat suitable for your dog.
FOR EXAMPLE, our “Jurassic Bone” is 12” in length, and is the largest bone we stock. It is suitable for a heavy chewer, but probably not the best bone for a Chihuahua pup.
