If your dog loves the taste of sweet potato then you’re in the right place. I’ve got 9 amazing sweet potato dog treats with both store-bought and homemade options! Go ahead and spoil those fur babies with these delicious and nutritious treats!
Sweet Potato Dog Treats
Many dogs love the taste of sweet potato. And a bonus is that sweet potatoes have a host of health benefits for humans as well as dogs.
Treats for our animal babies should be viewed as the same as treats for us. Everything in moderation. You don’t want your dogs filling up on treats and not eating their food. And choose treats carefully. We don’t want them ingesting garbage foods that are full of garbage ingredients.
Health Benefits of Sweet Potato Dog Treats
- dietary fiber to help with digestive health
- source of Vitamin A – this helps their skin, hair/fur, eyes, and muscles (but don’t overload them because too much Vitamin A can be harmful)
- source of Vitamin B6, C, calcium, iron, and potassium
- low fat
Again – don’t overdo any type of treat. It should be just that – a treat and not a meal replacement.
So if you know your pup likes sweet potato flavor or if you are looking for a new healthy treat alternative, here are a few good options both store-bought and homemade.
Store-Bought Sweet Potato Dog Treats
It’s ok if you can’t make your dog’s food or treats. Just like those parents that feel guilty because you aren’t making all the baby food homemade – stop sweating it. It’s ok and your dogs and kids will be ok if you are buying quality foods and snacks.
And what if you want to try your hand at making your own sweet potato treats for your dog?
