Why shouldn't you feed your dog Indian sweets?
Indian sweets are generally rich in fat and are made of dairy products that aren’t safe for your dog. They can cause diarrhea and can even be fatal to dogs that have allergies. High amounts of any sugary treat can be dangerous to pups.
Though your pup may love the taste of it, the processed sugar causes more harm to their system than one can imagine. Feeding your pet these sweets can lead to many short and long-term health issues like:
- Gastrointestinal disease
- Kidney Failure
- Effects on the nervous & cardiac system
"Treats or chews made for dogs can be both nutritional and fun for them. They can also be used as a reward for their good behavior"
What treats can you give your dog?
There are many forms of dog treats available for various purposes like:
- Training treats
- Dental care treats
- Healthy dog treats
- Vegetarian treats &
- Meat-based dog treats
From training, dental health to supplements, dog treats and chews have many benefits and can be used for different activities with your dog.
And on celebrations and festivals like Diwali, treats and chews are a great way to divert (but also satisfy) your pet's craving for sweets.
