Commercial Dog Biscuit Vs Natural Dog Food – Tripe, Trotter’s, Liver and Jerky

Our unconditional love for our canine friends often leads us to doing things that unknowingly may harm their health. For instance, we like to spoil them with treats like biscuits. Commercially made dog biscuits are not healthy treats for the dogs. Many pet owners also make the mistake of giving them biscuits that are made for humans. These treats are loaded with calories and bad for your pet’s health.

Negative Health Impacts of Commercial Dog Treats

Being plump is a feature that should be limited in dogs when puppies. Once the dogs grow up, being overweight can be far from cute. There are several health risks that develop in dogs when they are heavy, including short life expectancy, arthritis, high blood pressure, tumours, and heart diseases.

Commercially prepared pet treats are extremely high in calories. Their side-effects are not mentioned in the packaging, which sways the consumers to purchase them. Most pet owners prefer feeding their dogs with commercially prepared food and dog biscuits because it is easy and fuss-free. However, the dogs and people feeding commercial treats should both be prepared to pay the price – the dogs by developing health issues and the people by paying veterinary bills and/or by losing their canine friend.

Air-Dried Foods a Healthy Alternative to Commercial Dog Biscuits

However, it is significant that we provide delicious treats to our dogs, but just as we snack healthy to keep ourselves fit, we can offer healthy treats to our dogs too. We must select treats that are flavoursome and healthy too. Natural foods that have been air-dried make incredible treats for our pets.

Air-Dried Treats

Natural animal parts such as tripe, liver, trotters, etc., are air-dried to make healthy treats for your dogs. Jerky (thinly sliced dried meat) is an excellent treat for your dog. We are all aware that meat is rich in protein and other essential vitamins and minerals. Giving them air-dried treats doesn’t just satisfy their palettes but also promotes good health.

Here is a quick table representation of the difference between commercial dog biscuits and natural air-dried treats.
