After doing some research about sugar and pet food and the epidemic of dogs with diabetes, heart problems, liver and kidney problems, I decided to look into some of the data about Corn syrup and rice syrup. Over 1.4 million dogs suffer from diabetes according to Dr Karen Becker.
Corn syrup and rice syrup are sweeteners that are commonly used in processed foods, including dog treats and dog food. While these sweeteners can be safe for dogs to consume in small amounts, consuming too much of them can lead to health problems.
One of the main concerns with corn syrup and rice syrup is that they are high in calories and can contribute to weight gain in dogs. This can lead to obesity and other health issues, such as diabetes and heart disease. Additionally, these sweeteners can also cause an upset stomach, diarrhea and can raised your dog’s blood sugar levels. It is important to check these ingredients when you purchase treats and food for your pet. SavvyBeast DogStars and Beef Jerky are free of any sugars and syrups.
Another concern is that corn syrup and rice syrup are often made from genetically modified crops, which can contain harmful chemicals and pesticides. These chemicals can be harmful to dogs and can cause a range of health problems, such as liver and kidney damage. SavvyBeast products are free of -GMO’s, antibiotics and herbicides.
It's also worth noting that corn syrup and rice syrup can be a source of food allergies and sensitivities in dogs. Symptoms of food allergies can include itchy skin, hot spots, and digestive issues. Sugars, syrups and fructose do not belong in your pet’s diet.
Overall, it's best to avoid giving your dog any foods or treats that contain corn syrup and rice syrup. Instead, opt for natural sweeteners such as honey, or look for treats and foods that are made with whole ingredients without sweeteners. You should also consult with a veterinarian before making any major changes to your dog's diet.
In conclusion, while corn syrup and rice syrup may not be toxic to dogs, it's best to avoid these sweeteners as they can lead to weight gain, food allergies and sensitivities, and other health problems. As always, it is important to consult with a veterinarian before making any major changes to your dog's diet.
Pets are like people, they can get addicted to these sweeteners, and consuming them for a lifetime or for even a short period of time can damage your pet’s health.
