Many commercial pet treats are packed with grains, fillers, and byproducts. On top of this, they're processed in a high-heat manufacturing process just like dry kibble. So not only are they full of ingredients your dog doesn't need, the good ingredients have had their nutritional value cooked out during the manufacturing process.
Veterinarians say that treats should make up no more than 10% of our dogs' diets. While this is a good rule to follow, many pet parents just can't resist giving their fur babies extra treats throughout the day.
But regardless of how often or how much you treat your dog, those calories are an important part of your dog's diet. Making sure your dog treats are high quality and nutritious is important and will only help to support their overall health.
