Fall is here, and with it the promise of crisp air, fall colors and most importantly, fall flavors! You’re not the only one who can enjoy the cozy tastes of autumn. Check out our list of healthy fall treats that you can enjoy with your furry friend, too.
Few things are better than crisp, juicy refreshing apples, especially in autumn when they are in season and the local farmers markets are overflowing with apples in every color. Apples are a good source of fiber, which can help keep them regular and less lethargic.
When it comes to a satisfying crunch, few healthy options are as good as the humble carrot. Adding carrots at mealtime or as treats can be a low-calorie way of rewarding your dog, and the vitamins and fiber they bring to the table can’t be beat! Even better, they can help keep your dog hydrated and their texture may help keep teeth clean
PUMPKIN SPICE EVERYTHING is all the rage come fall, but did you know that pure, pureed pumpkin is great for dogs’ digestion? Not to be confused with pumpkin pie filling (which is full of sugar and all kinds of ingredients to avoid) pureed pumpkin can be a healthy, vitamin-rich addition to your pup’s fall diet.
Sweet potatoes are a fall food staple, especially going into the holiday season. These superfoods are a great treat option if your pet needs a little extra fiber and a few less calorie-dense snacks from the treat jar. Try adding blanched sweet potatoes to your dog’s meals, or give a slice or two as a healthy treat alternative.
