Who doesn’t enjoy a good treat?
It never fails to work when you give your dog a well-deserved treat. Treats are
something your dog looks forward to from time to time, whether you’re training
them, trying to form a bond, or simply want to pamper them. However, rather
than giving them pre-packaged food or biscuits, it is always a good idea to
give them a healthy snack. Some of the greatest foods for dogs are those that
are easy to find at home and are also high in nutritional value.

Fruits and vegetables high in
fibre and antioxidants are not only good for your pet’s overall health, but
they also make them happy. However, these treats should not be used in
place of regular meals and should only amount for 10% of a dog’s diet.

Dr. Dilip Sonune, Director –
Veterinary Services at Wiggles.in. says that, “Treats should make up only
10% of your dog’s diet. This 10% of treats differs for every pet as it depends
on your dog’s body weight, age, and activity level. To know the exact 10% of
treats to be given to your pet, you should speak to your vet. Always watch your
pet for allergies to food and avoid feeding it. Now that we know the basics,
here are some healthy treats for your dog that are easy to find and guilt-free.”

Remember to feed your pet the
treats suggested by Dr. Sonune in moderation and only after asking your


Strawberries and blueberries are
sweet, tangy, and easy treats to enjoy with your dog, particularly during the
summer. Low in calories, high in fibre, high in antioxidants, and high in
vitamin C, these berries are a must-try. Just make sure they’re clean before
feeding them. Avoid giving your dog canned berries because they may contain
sugar, which is hazardous to dogs.


The tastiest summer treat for
dogs is mango! Mangoes are high in vitamins A, C, E, and B6 and contain both
beta- and alpha-carotene. Remember to remove the kernel or seed and feed the
fruit in low quantities. 


It is critical to add hydrated
foods in your pet’s diet as summer approaches. Cucumbers are a good alternative
for overweight dogs because they contain little to no carbohydrates, oils, or
fats, and they help to increase hydration and energy levels. They’re also high
in minerals like potassium, magnesium, copper, and biotin, as well as vitamins
K, C, and B1. To avoid bitterness, wash well, peel the skin, and cut the sides.
Feed in little cubes after chopping.


Honey is a wonderful treat for
dogs, but it should only be given in little amounts. Honey is claimed to have
antifungal and antimicrobial qualities, which can help to reduce inflammation,
soothe ulcers, and relieve sore throats. When it comes to honey, always consult
your veterinarian before feeding it to your pet. In addition, make sure the
honey is organic, natural, and additive-free.

 Peanut Butter 

Peanut butter is the simplest and
tastiest treat for dogs. Peanut butter that is unsalted, sugar-free, and
xylitol-free is ideal for dogs. Peanut butter can be a great source of protein,
healthy fats, vitamin B, vitamin E, and niacin when used in moderation.
