Trick-or-Treat?

Vegan dog treats for Halloween

It’s October, and for many of us that means Halloween celebrations—or as we say around here, HALO-Ween! Other than fun costumes and decorations, Halloween is synonymous with treats. But just how many treats are ok for your furry friend?

Veterinarians recommend that treats, snacks, scraps, or other unbalanced food items make up no more than 10% of your pet’s daily caloric intake. Especially for cats and small dogs, a very small number of treats can quickly add up to this daily limit. Popular ‘people’ foods like peanut butter (100 Calories / tbsp) and cheese (70 Calories / 1-inch cube) can clearly be problematic.

Better options include low-cal snacks like carrots (4 Calories / baby carrot) or cucumbers (20 Calories / small cucumber), and commercial treats includingHalo的甘薯,胡萝卜和奎奴亚藜食谱狗对待(20千卡/杯)和Halo’s Peanut N’ Pumpkin Recipe Dog Treats(17千卡/零食)。

如果您已经最大限度地淘汰了当天的狗或猫治疗津贴,则另一种选择是留出他们日常食物分配的一部分作为款待。这意味着您可以继续培训,玩耍和奖励您的宠物,而不会对其饮食不平衡或添加额外的卡路里。为食物工作非常愉快,并为许多宠物吸引,并帮助他们保持活跃并防止肥胖。
