Just like we humans do not like certain foods or our stomach can’t handle them, so do our beloved puppies. Some of them can’t handle certain ingredients, while in other cases the poor quality treats are the ones causing digestive issues. In this article we’ll get into more details on this topic and find out what treats are good for dogs with sensitive stomachs.
What Causes Digestive Issues in Dogs?
Even though your dog can eat certain things that would be impossible for us to eat as humans, they may still have issues digesting certain ingredients that we consider healthy. These include corn and wheat.
Dogs can develop food allergies or sensitivities to certain ingredients or by a sudden change in their usual diet. Recurrent issues can lead to a more serious condition such as inflammatory bowel disease, so it is highly important to choose dog food and treats made of quality and easily digestible ingredients.
The Symptoms of Digestive Problems in Dogs:
Depending on each dog and the ingredient it is sensitive to, these symptoms may appear:
– Lack of appetite
– Excessive salivation
– Excessive gas
– Lack of energy / lethargy
What Treats Are Good For Dogs With Sensitive Stomachs?
The treats you give to your dog are just as important as its regular food. Here are the things you should be looking for when choosing a treat for dogs with sensitive stomachs:
– A single source of animal protein (like duck, lamb, beef, chicken, kangaroo)
– Carbohydrates that are easily digestible (without fillers like corn and wheat)
– Healthy fats (like seafood)
– A source of fibre
– Fresh fruits and vegetables for vitamins and minerals
– No added flavours, colours or preservatives
– Probiotics and prebiotics for a better digestion
Plenty of the products we have here at Loyalty Pet Treats fulfil all of these conditions and are suited for dogs with sensitive stomachs. Here are some of them:
They come in various forms and sizes and they will tantalise your beloved furry friend. Kangaroos suffer from fewer diseases and parasites compared to conventional meat animals. They are also not exposed to agricultural and veterinary chemicals, which makes them great choices for dogs with sensitive stomachs.
They are made through the unique and patented Nutrieseal™ process, which preserves all the nutrients without the need of any chemicals. Get the Kangaroo Bits now!
Australian Shark Cartilage
We have plenty of seafood products, and this is just one of them. It’s made of 100% pure Australian shark cartilage and thanks to the Nutrieseal™ process, all the nutrients and taste are preserved.
Shark cartilage can make a great chew for your puppy. It is softer than bone, but harder than vegetable sources. Chewing can strengthen the gums of dogs and also clean their teeth in a natural way.
Shark cartilage is also a good source of calcium, better than vegetables or bones. Bones can be too tough on dog’s teeth, but shark cartilage is just right. It is also low on fat, making a great alternative to lamb ribs or chicken necks. Besides calcium, it also contains phosphorous and other nutrients. Get them now!
