The Impact of Preservatives in Commercial Dog Treats

The Impact of Preservatives in Commercial Dog Treats

When it comes to feeding our furry friends, we want to make sure we're giving them the best. But with so many commercial dog treats on the market, it can be difficult to know what's truly healthy for our pets. One important factor to consider is the presence of preservatives in these treats.

Preservatives are added to commercial dog treats to extend their shelf life and prevent spoilage. However, these chemicals can have a negative impact on a dog's health. Many preservatives have been linked to cancer, organ damage, and other health issues. Even natural preservatives, such as vitamin E, can cause problems if used in large amounts.

That's why it's so important to choose preservative-free dog treats. These treats may have a shorter shelf life, but they're much better for your pet's health in the long run. The best way to ensure your dog is getting the healthiest treats is by making them at home. Homemade dog treats allow you to control the ingredients and avoid preservatives altogether.

Using our TDB homemade dog treats is also a great way to ensure you're using human-grade ingredients. Human-grade ingredients are safe for human consumption and are often of a higher quality than ingredients used in commercial dog treats. These ingredients are also more nutritious for your dog and can help to improve their overall health.

When making our TDB dog treats, you have the ability to choose from our natural preservative free ingredients that can be tailored to your dog's specific dietary needs. For example, if your dog has allergies, you can tell us to make sure to avoid ingredients that trigger their allergies. You can also tell us to add ingredients that promote healthy skin and coat, or that support joint and bone health.

One of the best things about TDB dog treats is that you can be creative with the flavors and textures. You can make soft and chewy treats, or crunchy ones. You can also get a variety of flavors, such as peanut butter, pumpkin, and even bacon. The possibilities are endless.

In conclusion, it's important to be aware of the impact of preservatives in commercial dog treats and to opt for preservative-free, homemade treats made with human-grade ingredients from TDB. Not only are they better for your dog's health, but they also offer the opportunity to have creative and customize the treats to your dog's specific needs.
