Dog Treats: More than just a tasty snack!

Proper feeding is the most important factor in caring for your dogs. They need to right amount of vitamins and nutrients to stay healthy and stay active. But while certain types of foods give them the required vitamins and nutrients, we should not overlook the benefits and values of giving them dog treats.

Dogs need constant love and attention, and one way to show them that they are being appreciated and loved is giving them delicious dog treats. Because dog treats taste much better than regular dog food, giving your dog tasty dog treats as a reward every time he does something good will make him remember the good deed and encourage him to do it again.

Dog treats are also a good tool when training your dog. For them, nothing else says they are doing a great job than a pat on the head, praise, and dog treats to go along with it. Giving them dog treats during training also encourages them to work harder. Providing dog treats during training will also make the experience more fun and enjoyable.

5 natural ways to treat anemia

Anemia is a condition that is commonly caused by blood loss from wounds or parasites such as worms and fleas. Symptoms of anemia in dogs include white or pale gums, weakness, and a fast pulse. Sometimes this condition indicates a more serious illness such as toxicity that results from a drug exposure. However, the more simple and common cause of anemia which is blood loss can be easily treated with a view toward promoting the growth of new red blood cells.

You need to give your dog a special diet rich in iron, protein, and vitamin B12. The following lists of foods and supplements are especially helpful and provide the necessary nutrients that your dog needs to treat anemia.

1. Beef liver which contains iron, protein, B complex, and B12. 2. Kelp powder which contains iodine and other trace minerals. 3. Green vegetables which contains iron and other minerals. 4. Nutritional yeast along with B12 which offers the same benefits as the liver. 5. Vitamin C, from 500 to 2,000 milligrams per day (depending on the dog’s size) which helps with the absorption of iron from the intestinal tract.

If the condition is caused by parasites, then you will need to nip the problem in the bud and treat the parasite infestation first before using any other forms of treatment. Always check with you vet.
