Top 5 Benefits of Sweet Potatoes for Dogs

Sweet potatoes are a nutrition-packed snack that are healthy and safe for dogs! These root veggies are known for their benefits to gut health and digestion. They also provide a boost in important vitamins and minerals, which is why we include them in our breathbone chews.

Check out our top 5 reasons to love sweet potatoes...

#1 They aid in digestion.

Since sweet potatoes are high in fiber, they help keep your pup's digestion smooth and regular. 

#2 They promote a healthy microbiome.

The antioxidants in sweet potatoes support a healthy balance of gut bacteria, which can lower your pup's risk of diarrhea and other digestive symptoms.

#3 They're high in potassium.

Sweet potatoes are high in potassium for their calorie content, which means they help regulate the body's fluid balance and blood pressure.

#4 They support healthy vision.

The antioxidant beta-carotene in sweet potatoes has been shown to support eye health, which is important as your dog ages.

#5 They help reduce cancer risk.

Like other antioxidant-rich foods, sweet potatoes help defend your pup's body against free radicals that increase risk of chronic diseases like cancer.
