Is your dog the king or queen of the house? They have a giant bed of their own (and free reign on yours). They determine when you wake up, when you go to bed, and how many cuddles you get. And we’re willing to bet you feed them food that’s fit for royalty, too!
While breakfast and dinner are super important to keep your pooch healthy and happy, the in-between snacks can’t be overlooked. That’s why we’re excited to introduce the newest addition to our variety of premium dog treats – Beef Recipe Snack Sticks.
In this blog post, we’re zooming in on the role of dog treats in your pet’s digestive health, and how these specific treats make a happy gut. Time to treat your four-legged prince or princess (or in some cases, overlord). Either way, long live the dog!
Keep It Simple with Protein and Fiber
First and foremost, let’s talk about the ingredients in your dog’s treats. Unfortunately, the market is flooded with dozens of dog treats that just don’t make the cut when it comes to feeding your dog the best.
There’s a lot of “doggie junk food” on the shelves – all you have to do is look at the labels to see what we mean. Popular recipes from other brands include “meat by-products”, “added colors”, and BHA – a known animal carcinogen! No, thank you.
When looking for healthy dog treats, you should make sure they have these two things: protein and fiber. With our Beef Recipe Snack Sticks, you’re in luck – because the #1 ingredient is beef (of course!). But what truly sets these treats apart is their simple ingredient list, including high-quality protein, rosemary, and our unique fiber blend.
Our proprietary blend, called Firmtastic, is made to support your pet’s overall health. It includes prebiotics that boost gut health, making it gentle on sensitive stomachs. Not only do these treats have digestive benefits, but they’re also backed by three years of research and testing by fiber experts in animal nutrition.
This synergistic recipe:
- Reduces odor
- Improves overall stool quality
- Supports a healthy immune system
- Complements the other wholesome ingredients in our foods
With no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives, you can feel confident the treats you’re handing out at snack time are junk-free!
The Digestive Difference in This Beef Stick Recipe
We’ve all experienced the consequences of a grumbling stomach at the wrong time, and it can happen to your dog, too! So, let’s talk about the importance of dog treats in promoting overall digestive health.
Your dog’s gastrointestinal tract contains about 70% of its immune system!1 Ultimately, it’s your pet’s front line of defense against pathogens. Can you believe all of that’s in their cute, little tummies?! And, just like us, dogs need a healthy digestive system to absorb nutrients into their bodies.
The added bonus: these ingredients work together with our existing dog food recipes, creating a perfectly balanced system. They’re the building blocks for a well-rounded diet – fit for your furry king (or queen!).
So how did we create a food and treat system that helps dogs do all of the above? We focused on these three things:
- Probiotics: These guys bring out the best in your dog’s gut. Probiotics are good bacteria and organisms that live in your dog’s intestines. They help digest food.
- Prebiotics: Think of these like a pre-dinner salad for your dog’s tum. They prep the stomach for digestion. They also love hanging out with probiotics. They feed off each other!
- Fiber: Not enough people talk about fiber for dogs, but it’s an essential nutrient all dogs need. It keeps things moving in the tummy department, which helps reduce the chances of messy pickups!
Lastly, adding fiber to your dog’s diet will result in better poops – we’re not even joking! We can’t say it enough – fiber is so important. It’s why we made these new beef sticks. Now your dog can chomp on something full of protein plus fiber.
Make Treat Time Healthy
Let’s not forget the fun part you’ve been waiting for – giving out the treats! Dogs love the taste and texture of our Beef Recipe Snack Sticks, making them the perfect reward for on-point behavior or just because. Good times and tummy pats ahead.
In conclusion, your pet’s digestive health is crucial to their overall well-being, and choosing the right treats can make a big difference. By choosing healthy dog treats with high-quality ingredients that focus on digestive health, you’re taking care of them with the best form of love possible – yummy and nutritious treats! Well, after hugs and kisses, of course.
