Why We Love Novel Protein Treats
A balanced and healthy diet is essential for dogs to maintain good health, and treats are an important part of their diet. However, not all treats are created equal, and some may contain harmful ingredients that can lead to health problems. This is where novel protein treats come in as a healthy alternative.
Novel protein treats are made from alternative sources of protein, other than the commonly used chicken, beef, or pork. These alternative sources of protein may include kangaroo, salmon, goat or venison, among others. These proteins are considered novel because they are not commonly used in traditional pet foods, and as such, they are less likely to cause allergic reactions in dogs.
At Pet Drs we have a range of novel protein treats that you dog with love like our Kangaroo Liver, Kangaroo Kidney and Goat Liver treats! Here are some of the benefits of novel protein treats for dogs:
1. Helps with food sensitivities and allergies
Many dogs suffer from food sensitivities and allergies, which can manifest as skin problems, gastrointestinal issues, or even chronic ear infections. Traditional protein sources such as chicken, beef, and pork are often the culprits, and switching to novel protein treats can help alleviate these symptoms. Regular treats contain harmful ingredients that can also cause upset. Our treat range are 100% natural, and single protein! Perfect for all dogs!
2. High in nutritional value
Novel protein sources are often leaner than traditional protein sources, and as such, they contain higher levels of nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for maintaining healthy skin and coat. Additionally, they often contain higher levels of vitamins and minerals, making them a great addition to your dog's diet.
3. Helps with weight management
Novel protein treats can be a great option for dogs that are overweight or obese. These treats are often lower in calories than traditional treats, making them a healthier option for dogs that need to lose weight. Additionally, they can be used as a training tool, helping to reinforce positive behaviors while keeping calorie intake in check. Our treats are 100% single protein, with no extra fillers, rice or carbohydrates, making them the perfect weight management treat!
4. Can improve digestive health
Novel protein treats are often easier to digest than traditional treats, making them a great option for dogs with digestive issues. The alternative protein sources used in these treats are often less processed than traditional proteins, making them easier for dogs to digest and absorb.
5. Promotes dental health
Many novel protein treats are naturally chewy or crunchy, which can help promote dental health. Chewing on these treats can help scrape plaque and tartar off your dog's teeth, reducing the risk of dental problems such as gum disease and tooth decay.
