7. Peanut Butter
Peanut butter is another favorite of canines!
Peanut butter is a good source of protein, which is needed for healthy skin and fur. Also, it contains heart-healthy fats, and vitamins B and E. However, due to its high fat content, it should be used as an occasional indulgence for your pet rather than a daily treat.
There are many peanut butter-flavored treats on the market, but you must choose one carefully. Look for one that is all natural and has no added sugar, salt or harmful chemicals like xylitol.
Just like with humans, some dogs may have peanut allergies. If your dog appears to have a bad reaction to eating peanut butter at any time, scratch it off your treat list.
8. Dried Apricots
Dried apricots make for a sweet, healthy treat for your pet. It is perfect for a dog with a sweet tooth, but should be fed in moderation.
Dried apricots are rich in fiber as well as many vitamins and minerals that can boost your dog’s immunity and prevent many health issues. In particular, dried apricots are rich in potassium, which is needed for bone and muscle health; and beta-carotene, which can help fight against cancer and improve vision.
While dried apricots make a healthy treat, bear in mind that the apricot pit can be poisonous. Make sure any dried apricots that you give to your dog have been pitted.
