Every good dog owner wants to make sure their furry friend is as healthy as they could be. Sweet potatoes treats like our Sweet Potato Straws or Chicken Wrapped Sweet Potato are both good for them and tasty!
Here are 3 reasons why you should start feeding your dogs more sweet potatoes!
1. Healthy & Tasty
Sweet potatoes are a natural and healthy treat for dogs, with vitamins A, B6, C, calcium, iron, and potassium to promote a healthy coat and skin. Additionally, they are packed full of antioxidants like beta-carotene which aid the immune system and lower the risks of cancer and heart disease.
2. Nature's Chew Toy
If you don't give your dog something to do, they'll find something wether you like it or not! While they may not last as long as rawhides, sweet potatoes fulfill a dogs chew drive, keeping them busy and soothing anxiety.
3. Rich In Fiber
These tasty treats are also a great source of fiber, helping in digestion and helping to alleviate diarrhea and constipation. A higher fiber content is also great to displace calories, helping your pet lose weight.
As with any treat, dogs should only be fed in moderation in addition to a healthy and balanced diet.
