- Sweet potatoes: Packed with vitamins, calcium, and iron, these natural treats are the perfect way to promote healthy skin, coat, eyes, nerves, and muscles in your pets. So, sweeten up your pawlentine this year with bite-sized sweet potatoes for your buddy.
- Bananas: Another sweet yet nutritious treat that will not only satisfy your pet's cravings but also lift their mood. Rich in minerals, fiber, and vitamins, bananas are a pretty safe bet if you want a natural yet healthy snack for your furball.
- Cucumber: Like carrots, cucumbers can also be a wholesome treat. They are a healthy and refreshing snack due to their low calories and high water content. Additionally, cucumbers aid digestion thanks to their high vitamin C and vitamin K content. Make sure to peel cucumbers and remove the seeds before feeding them to your pet to prevent any gastrointestinal distress.
