How to Choose Healthy Dog & Cat Treats for Your Pets?
As we all try to eat healthier with more sustainable foods and cleaner options that help our bodies and the environment, it’s important to do the same for our fur babies. Making a mindful choice about pet nutrition is one of a pet parent’s most important decisions. We’re on a mission at McLovin’s Pet to promote a healthy, fun and happy lifestyle with treats that are made with the premium single ingredients sourced from trusted ranchers, farmers and fisherman with no chemicals, preservatives or anything artificial, ever!
Finding the best treats for your dogs and cats is easier said than done. You will need to consider the breed, the age, the overall size, and your pet’s current health status when it comes to what you decide to feed them.
Healthy dog treats offer positive ways to love our pets, whether they’re for training, rewarding good behavior, or just because your fur baby looks so doggable or purrfect. Making healthy treats at home is a fun way to show your pet how much you care. You can make delicious ones using wholesome and animal-friendly ingredients and can adapt most recipes to your furry friend’s tastes and preferences.
If you’re looking for convenient, safe and sustainable treats, we offer single ingredient premium treats for dogs and cats made with real salmon, chicken, beef liver and turkey. These ingredients mimic the diets pets would eat in the wild so they receive the benefits of a raw diet. Our yummy treats are naturally freeze-dried and can be given straight out of the bag or rehydrated with water and pack a lot of nutrition in tiny amounts.
Pet care professionals also recognize that the wrong treats result in unbalanced nutrition as some pets can develop food sensitivities or allergies to ingredients or digestive upset. That’s why it’s important to give them only the best, highest-quality treats and pay attention to the effects of any new additions to their diet.
There are many healthy dog and cat treats available today. To help guide you on what treats to give your pet, consider these points:
- Formulation and purpose
- Appeal for the dog and/or cat
- Ranking + ratings (online or on social)
- Reviews + comments
- Expert’s recommendations
Your pet’s ideal treat depends on his unique needs, breed, age—and individual preferences. Ask your vet for some recommendations, especially if your fur baby has any health challenges that impact what they should eat.
What will work best for you and your pets will ultimately be up to you and if you need more guidance, you can always ask your next best friend, your pet care provider.
