When you give your dog treats, it’s just as important to look for natural ingredients as it is when you shop for your dog’s food. At NutroTM, we believe that giving your dog healthy and natural dogs treats is a healthier, safer and tastier option.
Finding the Right Balance
It can be tempting to offer your dog treats and biscuits for all sorts of good behaviours or even just as a special snack, but it’s important to balance your dog’s caloric intake to ensure the proper nutritional balance of fats, proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. Most of these will come from your dog’s food, but giving an occasional treat will not be harmful to your dog — and can be beneficial in terms of bonding and your dog’s overall happiness.
A general guideline for ensuring your dog is not overdoing it on treats is to ensure that no more than 10 percent of your dog’s total caloric intake comes from treats. You can determine this by checking labels on treats and food.
