Sure, we all love to pamper our pets. When it comes to treating our furry friends like family, everyone wants their loved ones to be both happy and healthy. What most doting pet lovers may not understand is that what they don’t know may hurt their pet when it comes to some of the most popular treat brands and their ingredients. According to the Association of Pet Obesity Prevention, both dog and cat obesity is on the rise. Believe it or not, more than half of America’s furry friends are overweight- 53% of dogs, and 55% of cats. Pet obesity can cause serious health problems down the road, which include but are not limited to:
Insulin Resistance and Type 2 Diabetes
High Blood Pressure
Heart and Respiratory Disease
Cranial Cruciate Ligament Injury
Many Forms of Cancer
Decreased life expectancy (up to 2.5 years)
Hearing these statistics can be frightening for a pet owner- and who could blame them? Even the most reserved of pet owners wants the best for their loved ones. Guess what? It is absolutely possible for your pet to be both happy and healthy! How? A balanced diet and regular exercise is key to any weight loss program- but who can resist treating their adorable companions? Many popular brands of dog and cat treats consist of mainly starches and grains, much like cookies for people (and we all know how much those can derail a good diet plan!) What if there was a way to both treat your pet and help them stay slim? There is! Green Mountain Treats are not only healthy, but pets ADORE them! These yummy treats, made of completely natural dehydrated chicken liver, are locally sourced and 100% made in the USA. Green Mountain Treats are low in calories, high in protein and have NO GRAINS! Both of Green Mountain Treats’ wonderful products only have one ingredient- dehydrated chicken liver. Yes, that’s it! Both the Dog treats and magic sprinkles can facilitate a healthy weight loss program for pets. Pets usually aren’t too fond of vegetables- unless Green Mountain Treats’ Magic Sprinkles are sprinkled on top! These yummy little morsels of chicken turn even the pickiest of pets into vegetable lovers. Another wonderful quality about Green Mountain Treats is the portion adjustability. The treats can be broken to fit any type of dog’s diet needs, from Chihuahua to Bernese Mountain Dog, and of course everything in between. Green Mountain Treats make treating and feeding time healthy, fun and hassle free. Make Green Mountain Treats a part of your furry friend’s routine- your pet will thank you!
