As pawrents, we all want to keep our doggos happy and healthy. One way to do this is by offering them nutritious, low fat treats.
Not only can low fat treats help maintain a healthy weight, but they can also improve overall health and energy levels.
In this article, we'll explore what low fat dog treats are and why they're important, as well as some options that your pup is sure to love. So if you're looking for some healthy and delicious treat ideas for your dog, read on!
Why Low Fat Dog Treats Are Important for Your Pup's Health
When it comes to treating our doggos, it can be tempting to indulge them, especially when they've got puppy dog eyes saying they haven't been fed in months!
Whilst feeding healthy treats in moderation (and adjusting their daily food intake accordingly) won't hurt your dog, all too often our doggos are masters at sneaking under the table to get fed leftovers, or even counter surfing.
This can lead to weight gain, and if left unchecked, other health problems such as pancreatitis or diabetes.
That's where low fat dog treats come in. Our collection of low fat treats for dogs are all less than 5% fat. By offering your dog low fat treats, you can help maintain a healthy weight, improve digestion, and reduce the risk of health issues.
Which Treats are Low Fat?
There are a few different low fat treats in our collection. It's worth noting that many treat businesses consider anything under 10% to be low fat. However, we only list treats with less than 5% fat as being low fat, so you can truly be sure that they are low fat.
Also, we only include treats where a commercially obtained nutritional analysis is available, we don't guess what might be low fat. The only exception to this is deer antler, which simply don't have any fat content.
Some of the treats in our low fat collection include
Even if your dog can only eat fish, or can only have novel proteins, we can find a low fat treat for you. If you have a big chewer, you can safely give a deer antler or shark skin roll.
If you have a small dog, mantis shrimp or chicken jerky might be more suitable.
With a Diploma in Canine Health and Nutrition, I'm better placed than most to advise on which treats are suitable for your dog. However, I'm not a vet, and if your doggo has pancreatitis or another serious condition, always check with your vet if the treats you've selected are suitable.
