5 healthy ways to indulge your dog’s sweet tooth

Since chocolate is bad for dogs, here are some suggested ways to indulge your dog’s sweet tooth in a healthy manner

1. Yogurt. Add fresh yogurt to your dog’s meal or make it a cool summer treat by following these directions: Cut eight thin slices from a banana and place one into each reservoir in an ice cube tray. Mix 1/4 cup yogurt with 1/4 cup water, and spoon over the banana slices. Freeze overnight and you’ve got a great sweet treat for your dog (best if served outside or on tile floors!). Yogurt is a great source of protein and calcium.
2. Beets. Add a small amount of grated raw beets to your dog’s food. Beets are a good source of folate, manganese, and potassium, and are rich in flavonoids. Just be careful— these brightly coloured vegetables can be messy!
3. Blueberries. Perfect as a quick treat, these small berries are rich in antioxidants and Vitamin C.
4. Dehydrated sweet potatoes. Peel sweet potatoes and slice them thin, then dry them either in a food dehydrator or in your oven. Your dog will love this crunchy sweet treat and it’s a great source of Vitamins A and C, manganese, and fibre.
5. Watermelon. A cool slice of juicy watermelon can be a nice treat for your dog. Watermelon is rich in Vitamin C and lycopene.

love this! My lhasa apso/maltese mix loves watermelon as a treat and I actually feed her beets with every meal. It is incredible how good they are for her and to avoid the mess I buy them already dehydrated and its cost effective. I would recommend it to anyone. Thanks for sharing this information! Very helpful :) <a href="https://www.olewousa.com/">carrots for dogs</a>
