Treats That Are Actually Good for Your Dog

Healthy Dog TreatsDogs are omnivores not carnivores and this means that they can eat almost anything. That being said, it’s important to give your dog a balanced diet and this means healthy snacks. Store bought snacks are handy but can be high in fat or sugar. Good alternatives include the following list of fruits and veggies as recommended by PetMed:

  • Apples – without seeds or core
  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Watermelon – without seeds
  • Frozen bananas
  • Green beans
  • Carrots – raw or cooked
  • Sweet potato – cooked or regular potatoes but in small amounts because they are high in sugar and can increase weight
  • Squash, zucchini
  • Lettuce
  • Spinach
  • Popcorn – unsalted and unbuttered
