Pets have always been a huge part of my life and over the years I’ve learned a lot about what animals need for optimal nutrition. Some commercial pet foods just aren’t designed with your pet’s best heath in mind and that’s why I was delighted to learn about new Milk-Bone Healthy Favourites dog treats.
Milk-Bone Healthy Favourites are made with real, basic ingredients like flaxseed, rolled oats and carrots. They are available in both a crunchy Granola Biscuit variety and a Chewy Treats variety and both contain just a few simple ingredients and between ten and twenty percent protein. They’re still treats, not food, but they’re a much better treat choice than the additive-filled dog treats that most commercial manufacturers sell!
I was very excited to see that the treats contained carrots and apples in the ingredient list. Contrary to popular belief, feeding dogs certain human foods is not at all harmful and can actually be very beneficial for your pet! Apples are full of plant chemicals (phytonutrients) and are a source of vitamins A and C and fibre. Carrots are also an excellent source of antioxidants and phytonutrients, which are thought to help protect the heart and reduce the risk of cancer. And since both add a natural sweetness to food, they aren’t just healthy for your pet; they’re delicious for him too!
Right now my boys are a little young for the responsibility of a dog but fortunately, my mom has two beautiful dogs that my boys love as much as if they were their own. Sadie is a sweet and shy little indoor/outdoor dog that has been a part of my boys’ lives since my oldest was born. Bear is a large, shaggy outdoor dog that joined the family in the last year. Both are amazing with the boys and live a very healthy and active lifestyle on my mom’s acreage. I’m so excited that we can spoil them now with these great healthy treats! Feeding the dogs a treat is one of my boys’ favourite activities and now they can do that without any worries about the additives or preservatives the dogs might be getting!
