Weight Loss Dog Food vs Regular Dog Food
When it comes to weight loss for dogs, there are several things to look out for when choosing a dog food that will help with weight loss efforts. Calories in dog food is super important to pay attention to, as high calorie dog food will only hinder weight loss. Additionally, you’ll want to look for a lean protein like turkey that has fewer dog food calories per cup compared to other proteins. Fat content is another thing to pay attention to, as low fat recipes significantly increase the chance of success when it comes to your dog’s weight loss plan.
Low Calorie Dog Treats
If you’re trying to help your dog lose weight, you’re probably wondering how many treats can a dog have and how often you should give your dog treats. Generally, treats shouldn’t make up more than 10% of your dog’s daily calories. If weight loss is the goal, it’s best to find low-calorie training treats and reserve them for training sessions only. Our moist dog treats and baked dog treats make for great training aids and don’t add too many calories.
More Ways to Help Your Dog Lose Weight
In addition to finding a great weight loss dog food, there are other things to add to your dog weight loss plan that can help your furry companion lose those extra pounds. Daily exercise, portion control, and a regular feeding schedule are all important factors to consider adjusting in your daily routine that can make a big difference. Healthy snacks for dogs can also make a difference–finding a good low-calorie, low-fat dog treat option allows you to still treat your dog on occasion without hindering progress.
The consumer demand for pea-free dog food is continually increasing, which begs the question—can dogs have peas? And are peas good for dogs? The answer is yes, dogs can have peas and peas actually have several benefits to dog food including added protein and several vitamins and minerals. However, some pet parents would just rather have no peas in dog food so we have recipes without peas to serve as an option to those dogs as well.
