10 Simple, All-Natural Dog Treats

We all know that all dogs love treats. But have you ever thought about what your pet's choice snack contains? Some dog treats come with preservatives that can compromise your dog's health (such as Propyl Gallate, Ethoxyquin, BHT, HA, and TBHQ). These extra ingredients may trigger dog allergies, lead to annoying coat and skin problems, and even be much more detrimental than beneficial.

The following are ten 100% natural, healthy treats you can feed your dog, rather than feed him store-bought snacks.

Cabbage

A cruciferous vegetable, cabbage helps to fight cancer. Steam some cabbage and make it part of dog's dinner--but only add a little to not upset your dog's stomach or cause flatulence. Too much cabbage causes gas.

Frozen sardines

These tiny fish are tasty and high in omega oils. Due to their tiny size, you can feed sardines whole. Freeze them for a crunchy, cool little dog treat .

Pumpkin

Not many things are as tasty as cooked pumpkin. Add some pumpkin to your dog's diet for extra vitamin E, vitamin C, omega fatty acids, riboflavin, fiber, as well as a healthy amount of vitamin A. But ensure you feed him roasted/steamed pumpkin as pumpkin pie contains plenty of harmful preservatives as well as refined sugar.If you want to learn more about dog treats, you can visit https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dog#Intelligence.2C_behavior_and_communication .

Quinoa

This old grain is ideal for pets that are sensitive to grains and is ideal for quelling an upset stomach, like brown rice.

Apples



Most dogs love tasty, crispy slices of apple. This is great because apples contain vitamin C, vitamin K, pectin (solution fiber), and calcium. However, get rid of the seeds and core because they contain harmful substances called cyanogenic glycosides.



Carrots


Pack 1-2 baby carrots for a perfect treat for dog while you're on the move. You can also cook the carrots, pound them and add to your dog's supper for a healthy, delicious addition. You can also freeze a few baby carrots to get a sweet, cool treat that will clean your pet's teeth naturally. Options abound.


Cheese


Most dogs really like cheese, making it perfect for rewarding your pet after training. But check the calories and bear in mind that unripe softer cheeses are very likely to trigger stomach upsets.


Dried apricots


Dry apricots are a tasty, healthy treat ideal for indulging your pet's sweet tooth. Mind the portion size though. Dried apricots contain all of the nutrients in fresh ones but lack water, so only feed small portions to stop stomach upsets.


Watermelon



Watermelon contains a lot of lycopene, an antioxidant that maintains healthy eyes and helps to fight cancer as well.


Sweet potato


Sweet potatoes are sweet as well as nutritious. They have B vitamins, vitamin C, potassium, niacin, and magnesium. You may serve dry sweet potato treats or steam and make them part of your dog's supper.
