Dog Treats – Benefits and Uses
Dog treats: these are the ideal solution to calm or distract a dog, especially when it is in veterinary surgery, but they can also be used for many other situations.
As a dog owner, you may be interested in offering your furry friend a few tasty treats from time to time. Dog treats can be a great way to reward your dog for good behavior, provide mental stimulation, or simply show your dog some love.
In this article, Biotur presents the reasons why dog treats can be beneficial and how often you can give them to your pet.
Dog treats – benefits
Dog treats are generally made from ingredients that are as natural as possible, provide nutrients and contribute to the health of the animal. The main benefits are the following:
- Adds extra nutrition and health supplements to your dog’s diet
- Can be used as part of training and as a positive reward for good behavior
- Prolonged chewing can help relieve boredom and reduce destructive behavior
- Dental rewards and snacks can promote healthy teeth and provide oral care
For optimal dog health, a balanced and nutritious diet is essential, and this extends to rewards. Natural dog treats are becoming increasingly popular among conscientious pet owners who understand the importance of rewards that are both healthy and tasty.
Natural dog treats are usually rich in ingredients derived from natural sources and free from artificial additives, chemicals, preservatives, and combinations of good quality meats, vegetables, and gentle grains. They are prepared and packaged in accordance with national regulations for a reward your dog can enjoy without adverse side effects.
Dog treats – uses
Dog treats can have multiple uses, but the main ones are these:
Treats for training
Dog treats can be a great tool for dog training. They provide encouragement that can help reinforce good behavior and encourage your dog to learn new tricks and commands. However, not all treats are created equal and it’s important to choose the right ones for your dog’s needs.
When it comes to training rewards, you’ll want to look for something that’s small, soft, and easy to digest. This will make it easier for your dog to eat quickly and get back to training.
One example of such a reward is the Biotur Shop’s “Mini Marrow Mix“, which contains 25 pieces of small grain and meat rewards, perfect for motivating the dog during training.
Treats for vet visits
During a visit to the vet, the dog may become very agitated and anxious. That’s why it’s advisable for the doctor to have a few kinds of rewards in the office to offer your pet during stressful moments. In this way, the dog is distracted from a vaccine that may be administered, or from another procedure that may make him nervous.
An example of a treat that can be given by the veterinarian is the stick. Being tougher and more consistent, the dog will chew on it for a longer period of time, enough to give the doctor time to perform the specific exam or procedure. These sticks contain 82% protein and are rich in calcium.
Treats between main meals
Treats can also be given between your dog’s main meals as a healthy snack. Although they cannot take the place of a main meal, they can serve as a snack between meals, especially when the dog may appear hungry.
Biotur recommends the “snack nuggets” dog treats with chicken and rice. These treats are high-quality, natural, complementary food for dogs of all sizes and are suitable for improving the dog’s mental state. They can be given 1-2 snacks per day depending on the size of the dog, thus contributing to keeping the dog healthy and fit.
