When it comes to giving your dog treats, there is always the inclination to give your pet something that is low in fat. After all, just like humans, animals can be prone to diseases with a high-fat diet.
If you are looking for a low-fat dog chews without any rawhide, you need to know that there are many products out there that you can buy. You just need to look at the label – if it says low-fat, it probably is. But if you are having a hard time believing, take a look at the list of ingredients. You will find out if, indeed, what you’re giving your pet has no fat in it.
Other than buying low-fat treats found in stores, you can make the treat yourself. Not a lot of pet owners know this, but dogs can actually eat vegetables. There is no harm in it for them. Give them a baby carrot or even a broccoli.
Unlike toddlers, animals cannot discriminate the taste in what they eat. So yes, you can include vegetables in their menu.
If you really want to expand your mind, consider what veterinarians think: Treats do not have to come in the form of food. Often, it is enough for dogs to get love and attention for you.
That said, as you are feeding your dog those all-good, but not necessarily delicious veggies, go out and play with him. Teach him new tricks. Even better, scratch his belly or in any other place that dogs typically like.
We are pretty sure that your pet will appreciate you for it.
Of course, if you really want to put your heart and soul into it, you can search for recipes online and cook up a treat. But then again, your dog really will not know the difference.
