When dogs eat candy, they don’t bother to remove the wrappers. Ingestion of foil and cellophane wrappers can cause pain and discomfort, and in serious cases, bowel obstruction requiring surgery to correct.
Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) October 28, 2016
Halloween is quickly approaching and that means fun for the whole family, including dogs. However, Halloween candy & chocolate pose a serious threat to dogs. Ingesting chocolate is poisonous to dogs because they cannot metabolize it the same way humans do.
“Of all the sugary candies you stockpile for Halloween, chocolate is the most toxic and dogs tend to be very attracted to the smell and taste of chocolate. In general, the darker and more bitter the chocolate, the more poisonous it is to dogs,” Lori Taylor, Founder and CEO of TruDog, adds, “In addition, when dogs eat candy, they don’t bother to remove the wrappers. Ingestion of foil and cellophane wrappers can cause pain and discomfort, and in serious cases, bowel obstruction requiring surgery to correct. In my case, I had to pay more than $8,000 in costs to cover my Great Dane's surgery from eating such wrapping and bags.”
To avoid these issues, Lori & the TruDog team has put together a guide to and keep your dog(s) safe this Halloween with tips on proper pet friendly candy storage and also recipes for Halloween dog treats so your canine can enjoy Trick or Treating with the rest of the family.
TruDog offers helpful Halloween treat recipes for dogs as a safe and healthy way for pets to enjoy Halloween.
The “Spooky Peanut Butter Pumpkin Biscuits” and “Cowgirl Doggie Paw Print Dog Biscuits” are easy to make and include the Boost Me Mighty Meaty Beef Topper/Meal Enhancer, which is a food-based supplement containing only Wisconsin free-range beef and vital beef organs, and does not require refrigeration.
TruDog does not mix its meat with grains, fillers or any chemical additives found in so many other dog treats. There are no refined carbohydrates and there is no added salt; it’s just pure digestible high-quality protein.
Boost Me can be added to the Halloween treats or served by itself as a treat. It improves the nutritional value of a dog’s current diet by supplementing it with an all-natural booster providing additional protein dogs need, as well as a great raw meat aroma that dogs cannot resist.
