WARNING! Sugar Is Never Good For Your Pet

It’s holiday time and that means more delicious sweets around our homes. Please be sure to keep pesky paws out of reach of candy and desserts—especially chocolate bunnies. But along with human sweets, did you know that many pet treats contain sugar? Warning!! Sugar is NEVER good for our pets and can lead to cancer, obesity, dental problems, ear infections, digestive symptoms, UTIs and diabetes.....just to name a few! Sugar is listed on labels as cane juice, molasses, maple syrup, sucrose, fructose, etc. Along with treats, sugar is also found in many “healthy" chewy vitamin supplements for pets. Manufacturers include sugar to disguise the taste of certain ingredients and to make them tastier for your cat or dog. Sugar can contribute to inflammation and it fuels the growth of yeast and bacteria. At our natural human-grade supplements do not contain any added sugars - just the quality nutrients that your pet needs.
