Are treats bad for dogs?

Not all treats are created equal. There is the good, the bad, and the ugly. And unfortunately, the ugly truth is that many dog treats that are in the market can be extremely detrimental to our furry friend’s health. So just as we need to be aware of the ingredients in our own food supply, we also need to pay close attention to the ingredients in our fur babies treats.

There are some dog treats that contain very low-quality ingredients but most importantly there are those treats that contain potentially harmful and in rare cases fatal ingredients. These specific treats in the market are mixed with synthetic ingredients such as BHA (Butylated Hydroanisole) and BHT (Butylated Hydroxytoluene) both which have been found and linked to possible carcinogens which helps to form cancer. Also, a fat preservative called Ethoxyquin which is often used as a pesticide can cause liver damage.

Cheap fillers are also used as ingredients in many treats. These can include wheat, corn, soy, rice, and other various grains that pets aren't biologically able to digest as efficiently as complete protein. Too many carbohydrates in your dog's diet can cause Dysbiosis, which is a microbial imbalance, similar to IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) in Humans.

These days Dog owners are now more conscious of what treats contain because we are witnessing a slew of health reactions, sometimes immediately after consuming some treats with fillers. Such reactions have included Allergies, foul breath, respiratory issues, immune system disorders, behavior problems (hyperactivity), and chronic fatigue.
