Natural Dog Treats: Benefits and Selection for Optimal Health

The Benefits of Natural Freeze-Dried Dog Treats.

Freeze-dried natural dog treats offer a unique combination of flavor and nutrition that is hard to beat. 

Freeze-dried dog treats preserve the natural goodness of whole foods. This process involves removing moisture from fresh, whole ingredients without cooking them, which helps retain vital nutrients that are often lost through conventional cooking. Natural ingredients, free from artificial additives, provide essential nutrients in a more digestible form. Here’s why freeze-dried dog treats are a top choice for pet owners:

  • Preservation of Nutrients: The freeze-drying process retains the integrity of proteins, vitamins, and minerals, ensuring your dog gets the maximum health benefit.
  • Long Shelf Life Without Preservatives: These treats last long without the need for chemical preservatives, keeping your dog’s diet natural and clean.
  • High Palatability: Dogs love the taste of these treats because the natural flavors are concentrated during the freeze-drying process.

Choosing the Right Freeze-Dried Treats for Your Dog's Needs.

Natural Dog Treats

Our venison treats are an excellent choice for sensitive dogs.

Venison is a novel protein that many dogs have not been exposed to, reducing the risk of allergies. Freeze-drying locks in the flavor and nutrients, making it a digestible and enticing treat for dogs with delicate stomachs.

To support joint health, we offer treats made from beef trachea, fish cartilage, and green-lipped mussel.

These ingredients are rich in glucosamine and chondroitin, which are known for maintaining healthy joints. The freeze-drying process ensures these critical compounds are preserved, helping your dog stay active and pain-free.

Treats for Puppies

Puppies require nutrients that will support their rapid growth and development. Our freeze-dried green-lipped mussel and beef heart treats are packed with high levels of protein and essential nutrients that are vital for a growing puppy.

Boosting a dog’s immune system is easier with our freeze-dried sheep liver and free-range venison treats.

These are loaded with vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A and iron, which are crucial for immune health. The gentle freeze-drying process maintains these nutrients effectively.

How to Introduce and Serve Freeze-Dried Natural Treats

Introducing new treats to your dog’s diet should be done gradually to ensure they adjust well and don’t experience any digestive upset. Here’s how you can successfully integrate freeze-dried treats into your pet’s routine:

  • Start Small: Begin with small amounts to gauge your dog’s reaction to the new treat.
  • Consistency is Key: Consistently use the same treat for several days to monitor your dog's response. This helps you identify any sensitivities or preferences your dog might have.
  • Balance the Diet: Remember, treats should not make up more than 10% of your dog’s daily caloric intake. Adjust their regular meals accordingly to avoid overfeeding.

While natural freeze-dried treats are safe for most dogs, it’s important to be aware of any potential risks:

  • Choking Hazards: Ensure the treat size is appropriate for your dog’s size and chewing ability.
  • Allergic Reactions: Monitor for signs of allergic reactions, especially when introducing a new treat. Symptoms may include itching, gastrointestinal upset, or respiratory issues.
  • Storage: Store freeze-dried treats in a cool, dry place to maintain their quality and shelf life.
