Every time I go out to the grocery store, I always stop in the pet aisle. Typically, my eyes wander to the dog treats section. Since my dog — who we rescued back in 2012 — isn’t a big fan of actual toys, dog treats are a great way to spoil him. Of course, not all treats are created equally.
Many dog owners don’t really know what to look for when it comes to dog treats. Just like with humans, too many treats aren’t a good idea. Dogs need a balanced diet. According to the RSPCA, dogs should mostly stick to a meat-based diet, yet adding plants in the mix isn’t the worst idea.
“Wild dogs eat a variety of foods which comprise mainly of prey animals, consisting of raw meat, bones, organs and a small amount of the vegetable matter contained in the gut of their prey,” they write. Of course, every dog is different. And, your vet will steer you in the right direction if need be. Sometimes, dogs need special food in order to try and stave off health conditions.
However, it’s still important to know the basics of what to look out for when it comes to food. And, dog treats definitely count as food. Obviously, dog owners want to know that the treats they’ve chosen won’t harm their pup in any way. Here are a few things you should know before shopping for dog treats.
