Beware Of The Holiday Goodies That Are Not So Great For Your Pet's Health

The holidays mean plenty of fatty treats for most people. Who can resist �... candy, cookies, fudge, egg nog, pumpkin pie, not to mention the home cooked meals and family togetherness? It�s part of the spirit of the season. While we may not be able to resist the urge to overindulge ourselves, we can and should resist the urge to overindulge our pets. Let�s face it, we all sneak a little table treat to our pets every now and then. It�s hard to say no to those wanting eyes. And, the excited look on their little face when they realize they are getting a treat is priceless. But, tread lightly down this path!!

For one, animals have a very short span of contentment. Their contented state lasts long enough for them to swallow the last bite. Then, those wanting eyes are right back in your face, watching your every move� expecting� hoping� guilting � If you head down this path, be prepared to deal with it every single time you sit down for dinner.

But, the annoyance of a begging animal is just a minor problem. The bigger problem is that table scraps can lead to indigestion, upset tummies, vomiting and diarrhea. Pets have a very sensitive system. Upsetting the balance of that system can cause them all kinds of health problems. Table scraps can also be high in fat and sugar, which can lead to weight problems, heart problems, and diabetes.

So, What are the Best Types of Treats?

Treats that contain wholesome, natural ingredients are a great alternative for keeping your pets healthy and happy.� Consider treats that work to improve the overall health of your pets.� There are many out there that promote dental health, assist with achy joints, are high in antioxidants, or vitamin enriched.� Some great ones to try are HealthyPetNet�s Gourmet Dental Treats and Antioxidant Health Bars
