Boosties are the perfect addition to a Healthy, Balanced Diet. They are high in protein, low in saturated fat and cholesterol, and contain many essential vitamins such as vitamin A, vitamin C, and beta-carotene. Many also have calcium which is necessary for healthy bones.
Furthermore, Boosties are higher than your average cereal in fiber which helps promote bowel regularity. One cup of Boosties has twice the fiber content of whole wheat bread, making it an excellent choice for those looking to lower their intake of dietary fat or who need to adhere to a specific nutritional plan that restricts certain food groups (i.e., diabetic).
Some people have had difficulty getting their dogs to adjust to Booties, so here are a few suggestions:
1. Place 1/2 cup of Boosties in your dog’s food bowl. Some dogs will eat the whole 1/2 cup without even missing their regular food, but if your dog doesn’t, try feeding 1/8th tablespoon in different areas of the bowl until they find it and then slowly work up to a full scoop. Once this is done, your dog will continue eating the boosted Nutrient Dense Foods; if not, you can try.
2. Start by adding Boosties to the food bowl on a day when your dog is already full from dinner so that they are not hungry.
3. Sometimes, dogs prefer to eat just their regular food rather than something different. Start by adding 1/4 cup of Boosties to their dinner and slowly work up to a full scoop. If at later meals your dog eats less then normal, start reducing the amount of Boosties added back down until they are eating normally again, then start adding it back in and increasing again.
4. You may have a picky pooch! Don’t worry. This is pretty common, and there are several things you can try. It may be as simple as trying different types of Boosties. Some dogs love the coconut variety, and others don’t. Try replacing one to two Boosties with the other. While this won’t be a permanent solution, it can often help get your dog to try the new food.
5. Try putting some Boosties into an ice cube tray and freeze them, then place these cubes in the freezer bin with your dog’s regular food so that he has different treats to choose from in between meals when he is hungry and is waiting for his typical food to cool down.
In conclusion, Boosties are a nutritious and delicious snack for your dog. They are high in protein and lower in saturated fat than many other bowls of cereal. Boosties promote bowel regularity, so they can be given to dogs with a built-up of waste in the colon, which helps prevent constipation. In addition, Boosties contain an abundance of vitamins, minerals, and other nutritional benefits that acts as a “superfood” for your dog’s overall health.
