It’s necessary to be educated so each dog can live a lively and enjoyable life, and the Edmond veterinarians at the Family Pet Hospital can provide that proper education.
There is a plethora of products on the market for dogs. The catch is trying to decide what each dog prefers and needs. What is the best product? What is safe? How will I know if my dog will like it? Like any other kind of food, healthy and processed foods exist. Reading the ingredients on a bag of dog treats is no easy feat, but getting help from a vet can help you determine the best for your dog.
The following is a breakdown of some of the most common and popular commercial treats available that are recommended for dogs:
Greenies are a popular chew that proclaims to clean dog’s teeth while offering high protein and low fat. There have been claims that dogs have choked on them or that they don’t digest. However, this is on a case by case basis and every dog is different.
Milkbone is still a crowd pleaser. This original baked product has been on the market for quite a while. They make a great snack for any dog and are great as rewards during training.
Dentastix are the same in color as Greenies but that is where the similarity ends. These sticks are relatively easy for dogs to consume and are supposed to clean dogs’ teeth and keep them strengthened. It’s necessary to pay attention to the health of a dog’s teeth.
Beggin’ Strips are incredibly popular with the consumer and heavily advertised on television. Dogs enjoy these tasty treats, but moderation is key. Never overdo it with these treats.
Selecting the right treat for a dog can be overwhelming as there are so many products and treats. Milling through the different brands is tedious, so it’s best to go straight to a vet and ask for advice.
The vets and staff at the Family Pet Hospital will provide great information regarding treats and what to purchase for a dog. The staff can expedite the selection process and a dog will get a treat that is nutritious and beneficial.
