FAQs About Grain-free Dog Treats

Grain-free dog treats aren’t necessarily better for dogs. A lot depends on your dog’s unique digestive system. Some dogs can be allergic or sensitive to grains. If you notice your dog vomiting, scratching excessively or experiencing diarrhea, a food allergy could be the cause. Schedule an appointment with your vet. If your vet discovers food allergies, they can help you determine the right dog food and treats that will protect your pet’s sensitive stomach.

There is no one dog treat that is the healthiest of them all. Instead, the best dog treats for your canine will depend on a number of factors, including your dog’s age, breed and health. Smaller dogs and older dogs with slower metabolisms do best on smaller treats or larger treats that are broken into pieces. Older dogs may also do better on treats that include ingredients that support joint health. When shopping for healthy snacks for dogs, read the label and do your homework. Many top dog food brands list meat as their first ingredient and stay away from meat meals, byproducts and certain preservatives. If you aren’t sure which treats are best for your dogs, consult your vet.

Most commercial dog treats are just fine for your dog unless you suspect that your pet suffers from a food allergy. If this is the case, make an appointment with your vet. If your dog is allergic or sensitive to grains, you may need to switch to grain-free dog treats. However, in most cases, the worst dog treats are the treats that were never meant for dogs in the first place. You may mean well, but feeding your dog table scraps or any human food can cause negative health effects. Dogs can’t digest all the same foods as humans, and many human snacks are high in calories, which can cause your dog to become overweight or obese. Stick with treats meant for dogs, and don’t over-indulge your canine with too many treats.
