Dogs look so happy in those TV commercials for dog treats, don’t they? Tongues out, tails wagging, happy happy happy! But behind the marketing shine, what really happens when you give your pet these popular store-brand dog treats?
At best, they give your dog very little nutritional value. At worst, these dog treats can actually make your pet sick … and contribute to the growing problem of pet obesity.
Wheat is usually the top ingredient in dog treats. It’s also the #1 cause of allergies in dogs and offers no nutritional value. Symptoms of wheat allergy include itchy skin by the ears, legs and feet; ear infections and stinky ears; hair loss; and skin infections.
Animal Digest/Meat Meal
We all like to picture the meat in our dogs’ treats as coming from happy livestock, with only the best parts of the animal used. So what the heck is “animal digest”?
Think of a bubbling cauldron of slaughterhouse waste … comprised of unspecified parts of unspecified animals. It’s “anything goes” in this toxic soup: rejected supermarket meat, road kill, and diseased livestock.
The “soup” is rendered down, and then used as a spray-on or added directly to the dog food/treat. The grease that rises to the top is used as a fat source, and the remainder is dried and used as “meat meal.”
The World Health Organization has named both of these popular dog preservatives as suspicious cancer-causing compounds. The State of California also identifies BHA as a possible carcinogen.
Imported from China
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cautions consumers on purchasing chicken jerky products (tenders, strips or treats) imported from China.Complaints have been rolling in for almost a decade now about these treats making dogs seriously ill.
Gastrointestinal illness accounts for 60 percent of the FDA reports on jerky treats from China, 30 percent involve kidney and urinary complaints, and 10 percent involve convulsions, tremors and skin irritation.
Humans aren’t the only ones with a sweet tooth … and dog treat manufacturers know it! So many dog treats have sugar nowadays to make them tastier and more addictive. Combine this with all the fat and artificial junk in dog treats, and you have a real gut bomb for your pet.
Treats should only comprise 10 percent of a dog’s diet … but a lot of owners don’t stick to this, and unwittingly, the treats they give aren’t healthy ones.
This is contributing to the growing problem of pet obesity: 53% of adult dogs in the U.S. are now obese or overweight.
What’s the big deal about a little extra wiggle in your dog’s waddle? Pet obesity can take nearly two years off your dog’s lifespan.
Your dog deserves a healthy and delicious treat that won’t make him sick.
