Lots of people are feeding their dogs with regular dog food, then they are giving them treats between meals and also throwing them food during the family meals. The calories can add up quickly, and both cats and dogs can become obese. This can create a lot of health issues on the long term, and that’s why you need to be very careful. Obese pets should go on a diet (just like us humans do), and they should only consume certain foods that are low in calories. In this article we’ll look at some of the best treats for overweight dogs.
A healthy dog treat should:
- Have a great smell and taste (not according to your own tastes, but to those of cats and dogs)
- Have nutrients, dental benefits or both
- Not include any added fillers, colourings or preservatives
- Be low in calories
Unfortunately, many dog treats do not fulfil all of these conditions, and are packed with preservatives and chemicals that can upset your dog’s stomach or cause other health issues. Plus, many of them have lots of calories, which can make your pet gain even more weight.
