In a world of ever evolving dog products, we’ve come a long way from meaty bones and table scraps. While you can still find a fair share of “junk food” for dogs, there are many treats on the market that contain ingredients offering a variety of health benefits to your dog. But do they work?
Functional dog treats, take “treating” your dog to a new level. Instead of just appealing to your dogs taste buds, these treats contain vitamins, essential oils, probiotics and amino acids that benefit your dogs well-being. From dental health, to joint function, allergies and immune health, there are treats to help boost every part of your dog’s body, inside and out.
While there’s nothing bad about giving your dog healthy treats, there are a few things to make sure functional treats are functioning for your dog:
As with any new food or treat, always read the lable to ensure you are following the guidelines for your dog’s size and weight. Always check with your vet if you have any questions or concerns.
