Natural Nutrition for Dogs: Goat & Lamb Dog Treats
Our dogs are so much more than just pets – they are our best friends and part of our family. They often have important jobs, such as watching over animals, guiding a person with a disability, providing emotional support, or even sniffing for bombs or pursuing criminals.
Because you love your dog so much, you want to give him the best nutrition possible. Grass fed lamb dog treats or goat dog treats can offer your furry friend an all-natural, grain-free alternative to standard kibble, with a range of potential benefits. Please consult your veterinarian before changing your dog’s diet.
Give a Dog a (Raw) Bone
Unlike cooked bones, raw bones are soft, moist and flexible. When fed raw, at a size appropriate for the age and chewing experience level of your dog, bones can offer many benefits. We offer raw lamb dog treats here. Please do not feed your dog cooked bones as they can splinter and injure your dog.
Raw bones deliver glucosamine, calcium, phosphorus, and can be rich in omega 3 fats. As a result, your dog may experience improved skin and joint health and firmer stools. Additionally, raw bones satisfy your dog’s natural chewing cravings and make the perfect all-natural toothbrush for his pearly whites.
Back to Nature
With his large teeth, strong jaw and short digestive track, your dog’s body was made to eat meat. Most manufactured dog foods contain a variety of additives, preservatives, and grain fillers. The naturally carnivorous dog does not have the system to cope with these extra ingredients and may suffer from allergies, dental problems, low energy, obesity and a lower immune system.
A diet of raw and cooked grass fed lamb and goat meats, in ground and chunk form, can give your dog a leg up on any health problems he may have. We offer both lamb dog treats and goat dog treats for a healthier alternative.
The Novel Protein
Throughout your dog’s life, he has likely eaten plenty of the standard proteins found in most commercial dog foods, such as chicken, pork, turkey and beef. The more often your dog eats a specific protein, the harder it may become for his system to break it down. His body may start to see that protein as a toxin and create defenses to ward it off, which can result in symptoms of food allergies.
Rotating novel proteins, such as lamb dog treats and goat dog treats, into your dog’s diet can help prevent allergies before they start or stop them in their tracks. Because these proteins are not typically found in commercial foods, dogs with sensitivities and allergies especially welcome them.
