As dog owners, we all want to provide the best care and nourishment for our furry friends. One of the key ways to do this is through their diet, and the treats we give them can make a big difference. 

In recent years, there has been a growing trend towards natural, healthy treats, and Australian-made options like chicken breast, kangaroo, and shark cartilage have become increasingly popular among vets and pet owners alike. 

In this blog, we'll explore why these treats are recommended by vets and why you should consider purchasing them from a small family business like Teachers Pet Treats.

Health Benefits of Natural Treats

One of the primary reasons that vets recommend natural treats like chicken breast, kangaroo, and shark cartilage is that they offer a wide range of health benefits for dogs. Here are just a few examples:

High in Protein: treats like chicken breast, kangaroo, and shark cartilage are high in protein, which is essential for maintaining strong muscles, bones, and organs. This can be especially important for active or athletic dogs, as well as senior dogs who may be experiencing muscle loss.

Low in Fat:While dogs need some fat in their diets, too much can lead to obesity and other health problems especially when it’s stored around their organs. Natural treats like chicken breast and kangaroo tend to be low in fat, making them a healthier option than many commercial treats.

According to the USDA Food Composition Database, 100 grams of shark cartilage contains just 0.7 grams of fat, making it quite a lean but highly nutritious dog treat.

Good for Oral Health: Chewing on natural treats like shark cartilage can help to clean your dog's teeth and promote good oral health. This can be particularly beneficial for dogs who are prone to dental problems.

Easy to Digest:Natural treats are often made from simple, whole ingredients that are easy for dogs to digest. This can help to prevent digestive issues like upset stomachs and diarrhea.

Allergen-Free: Many dogs suffer from food allergies or sensitivities, which can lead to a range of health problems. Natural treats like chicken breast and kangaroo are often free from common allergens like wheat, soy, and dairy, making them a safe and healthy option for dogs with dietary restrictions.
