Dog treats: What types of treats can my dog eat?
Commercial treats from companies that you trust or homemade treats prepared with the guidance of a board-certified veterinary nutritionist, are of course, two options.
Veterinarians, including those from the World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA), recommend fruits and vegetables because they’re high in nutrients and low in calories. Here are some choices that, fed in moderation, will do your dog’s body some good.
Loaded with beta carotene and other vitamins, carrots are almost guaranteed to be in your kitchen anyway. Why not cut up some bite-sized pieces and use them as a healthy reward? Some dogs can be bad about swallowing without chewing (we’re looking at you, labs and beagles), so if yours is one, be sure that the carrot pieces are an appropriate size.
