What are you going to give your furry four-legged Valentine? Lots of puppy love, of course, but your pup is going to be begging for some treats all day long. There's no harm in giving a few extra treats on this special holiday, but remember: There are some "treats" that should never be given to your dog, like chocolate.
While the "Good Treats" below are good for your dog, it's actually even better to give your Valentine's Day pup dog treats instead. Dog treats, like Cesar's are formulated especially for your pup. Treats are made of ingredients like wheat and rice, which can even help their digestive system. Treats like Cesar's® Softies Dog Treats bite size are only 7 calories and resealable to guarantee freshness.
- Peanut Butter. A pet and pet parent favorite, peanut butter is a good treat for your dog this Valentine's Day. Peanut butter is great -- high in protein and nutrients. It's best to give your pet the least processed peanut butter -- preferably organic -- because oils and sugars used in highly processed peanut butter is not healthy for your dog. Just keep in mind that like pet parents, pets can be allergic to peanuts. If you have concerns about an allergic reaction, contact your veterinarian.
- Chocolate. You should never, ever give your dog chocolate. It's a great Valentine's Day treat for pet parents only. Chocolate is toxic for pets and can make your dog extremely sick. If your Valentine's Day pooch has gotten his paws on some of your Valentine's Day chocolate, make sure to contact your veterinarian immediately.
You don't have to be alone this Valentine's Day, and even if you're not, there is always more room for puppy love! Adopt a cat or dog this holiday at your local animal shelter. For more information about animal rescue, visit www.AnimalFair.com.
