You might be wondering how many treats you can give to your Tibetan Mastiff puppy?
Your vet could guide you on this, but as a general rule, treats should not exceed 10% of the total food a dog consumes. Regardless of whether it is a puppy or an adult.
We need to be careful not to overfeed our puppies, this can easily be done if we give them too many treats throughout the day.
The best way to limit yourself is to count the number of treats you give to your pooch, and then subtract an equivalent amount of food at mealtime.
Now, the next thing to answer is: what kind of treats are better for your pup? You can find a lot of options in terms of regular treats.
Read on to find out which are the healthiest organic treats for puppies.
Can TM Puppies Eat Regular Treats?
The brief and simple answer is “no”. When we feed our pups treats, we need to be more cautious than when we feed them to an adult dog, especially when the treats are new to them, because their tummies could get easily upset when they receive new things to digest.
What are the best organic dog treats for Tibetan Mastiffs?
If there are more ingredients in the treat, try to avoid picking one that has sugar or starch among them. Preferred ingredients are organic beef, chicken, and fish.

Dehydrated vs. Freeze-Dried Liver Treats For Pups
Dehydrated liver treats can be even more dangerous if served in excess, because they contain ten times vitamin A than the raw or cooked liver.
Freeze-dried liver treats, like PureBites freeze-dried beef treats, don’t have such a high concentration of vitamin A. Even though they don’t have an organic seal, they are made with only one ingredient: 100% all-natural human-grade beef liver.

Unsafe Human-Grade Puppy Treats
- Avocados: They have a toxin called persin that is potentially toxic for dogs. It could cause tummy aches, and its high-fat content could cause pancreatitis.
- Chocolate: Even if it is organic, it contains stimulants that, when ingested in large quantities, could cause diarrhea, vomiting, and even seizures and irregular heartbeat.
- Onions: They can cause damage to your doggie’s red blood cells.
- Grapes and raisins: These fruits are great for you, but could cause kidney failure to your puppy.
