Dogs love meat. Everyone knows that. But, your pupper needs so much more than meat to complete a healthy, balanced diet. Fruits, veggies, fiber and grains – natural ingredients found in our new Superfood Treats – are critical to your dog’s health and well-being!
Scientists have proven that an unbalanced diet is bad for your health. The same goes for your dog. Between salads, smoothies and healthy snacks, we do our best to eat a nutritious diet every day. Shouldn’t we offer the same well-rounded diet to our four-legged friends? (Tail wags approvingly).
Dogs Need More than Meat
Dogs have been domesticated for over 10,000 years. In that time span, dogs have transformed from mesocarnivores to omnivores. That means dogs can obtain essential nutrients from animals and plants just like people. On the contrary, cats are obligate carnivores with a diet consisting exclusively of protein-based foods.
All of that is simply to say that your dog requires more than meat in its diet!
Most commercial dog food is protein-based. That makes sense since protein remains an essential part of their diet. While dogs get enough protein from meals, most treats are still meat-based. After all, dogs simply can’t resist that meaty flavor.
Unfortunately, meat-based treats keep giving them more extra calories, fat, salt and protein that can be bad for their health. Protein is a calorie-dense nutrient that can quickly lead to weight gain. There’s a long list of health issues, including diabetes and kidney dysfunction that are caused by excessive protein consumption.
Superfood Treats to the Rescue!
At Pet Naturals of Vermont, we set out to develop a treat that’s both healthy and delicious. Our new Superfood Treats were formulated to be the ultimate blend of flavor and natural ingredients.
Superfood Treats are loaded with organic ingredients like apples, blueberries, spinach and sweet potatoes. Your dog will devour these nourishing treats that come in Crispy Bacon, Homestyle Chicken and Peanut Butter flavors. They can be given to your pup as a healthy snack, training reward or a treat on the go!
The best part is that Superfood Treats not only satisfy your dog’s cravings but are good for them, too. Unlike many of those meaty treats, Superfood Treats contains just 7 calories per chew but are still flavor-packed for your pup.
Superfood Treats give your dog the flavors he craves along with wholesome ingredients for a healthy and balanced diet. Don’t sacrifice flavor or ingredients when rewarding your dog with a treat. Instead, feed him Superfood Treats for a happy, healthy and active lifestyle!
