That is indeed an important question in regard to man’s best friend.
We all like to reward our dog from time to time. However there are some “treats” that are anything but.
Avoid the following treats that look quite harmless at first glance.
Avocado, chocolate, caffeine, grapes and raisins, ice cream, onions, salty things, raw or uncooked meat and fish. To name but a few.
Also beware of commercial treats which contain preservatives, colouring and chemicals.
Healthy, homemade treats are the better option. Try and include oatmeal, canola oil, oat flour and chicken broth.
Peanut butter and (cooked) eggs are good for your dog’s coat and parsley is good for eliminating “doggy breath”.
Make sure you do your research on which fruits are good. A banana in the morning is a good way to start the day.
Remember Trick or Treat is a daily occurrence for your dog ; not just a fun night for you kids in October.
