Dogs enjoy a treat as much as we do and owners are becoming a lot more conscious of what they are feeding their dogs. This cautious approach can often be overlooked when it comes to selecting treats and it’s important to remember that just like dog food, not all dog treats are made equal.
Some are low in nutritional value and can be packed with artificial ingredients, so it’s important to choose healthy, natural treat for your precious pooch!
A healthy and nutritious dog treat should:
- Be free from added sugar
- Contain no artificial colours, preservatives or flavourings
- Be free from fillers – bulking extras with no nutritional value
- Contain wholesome, natural ingredients gently prepared to preserve their nutrients and taste
- Be flavoursome, to keep your dog coming back for more!
Choosing the best natural dog treats for your dog depends on the purpose of the treat and the needs of your dog. Our latest addition of eight delicious, all-natural dog treats from luxury pet retailer Mutts and Hounds contain a wide range of healthy ingredients to help benefit your pet.
Salmon is a great source of omega 3 fatty acids which assists the immune system.
Duck is an excellent source of protein, high in iron and is great for dogs with food allergies.
Parsnips are a fantastic source of fibre and are packed with potassium – a mineral and an electrolyte essential for skeletal, cardiac and muscle performance.
Sweet Potatoes are high in fibre and therefore aid digestion, promote healthy microbiome, are high in potassium and support healthy vision.
Turkey is a great source of protein and is great for digestion and dogs suffering from allergies.
Linseed is packed with omega 3 fatty acids, helping to soften and shine the coat.
As well as being delicious, all eight flavours are naturally low in calories, high in fibre and are grain, gluten, wheat and palm oil free. Each one is packaged in a handy, resealable 100g pouch which is perfect for keeping the treats fresh on long dog walks.
