At Green Mountain TREATS we offer high-quality, all-natural chicken liver treats for dogs and cats. We take great pride in providing the best-dehydrated liver products that not only taste great for your pet but keep them healthy as well.
Green Mountain TREATS are made from 100% all-natural dehydrated chicken liver and contain NO additives, NO preservatives, NO fillers, just all-natural chicken liver! We have been proud residents of Vermont for a very long time and we are very active and enthusiastic about all products made in this great state! Hence, when the opportunity came to buy GMT it only came naturally.
Just as with owner diet and snacking trends, it is important for people to realize what they are feeding their pets. The pet food industry is dominated with chemicals and unhealthy treated byproducts that food companies decide to label and sell to animals. Green Mountain Treats seeks to stop this behavior by creating a dog treat where the only ingredient is all-natural dehydrated chicken liver.
The chicken livers Green Mountain Treats uses contain no fillers, wheat, or hormones and are naturally high in protein and vitamins to create wonderful treats for your pet. These treats should not be used as a food substitute and instead should only be given as rewards, training tools, or special snacks throughout the day.
For small dogs and cats, we recommend feeding no more than two treats a day, while medium-sized dogs may be fed up to three. Larger dogs can have up to five dog treats a day.
Some of the reasons we (and our pets!) love dehydrated liver as a treat:
Made from all-natural chicken livers containing no additives, growth hormones, or antibiotics.
Low Calories: Chicken liver is 73% protein by calories. 100 grams of chicken liver contain 116 calories, 85 of which come directly from protein.
Very high in protein and vitamins. Liver is one of nature’s most abundant source of Vitamin A. Vitamin A is responsible for good vision. This fat-soluble vitamin is also responsible for growth, fetal development, immune function, and cell function.
The B vitamins are a group of important vitamins: Thiamine helps regulate energy and carbohydrate metabolism, and activates ion channels in neural tissue. Riboflavin, B12, and niacin help facilitate enzyme function. Vitamin B6 is especially vital. This vitamin is responsible for glucose generation, red blood cell and nervous system function, hormone regulation, immune response, niacin synthesis, and gene activation. Pantothenic acid helps with energy metabolism. Folic acid plays a role in amino acid and nucleotide metabolism and in mitochondrial protein synthesis.
The liver is very high in copper and iron, important elements that can be low in homemade diets.
High in Vitamin K2, which supports dental health, and Vitamin C to help boost the immune system.
Our pets tell us that Green Mountain Treats have a distinctive taste and smell which makes it an ideal training tool, even for pets that don’t typically vie for treats.
Even very finicky eaters love our chicken liver sprinkle.
Are There Risks Associated With Dog Vitamins?
Vitamins are absolutely vital to life. It should not surprise us that something so essential could also be potentially dangerous in large quantities. Too much vitamin A can cause dehydration, joint pain, and can even harm your dog’s blood vessels. Liver is also very high in copper, which can cause problems for pets with copper-associated diseases, as well as high in purines, a big no-no for dogs with uric acid stones.
As with all foods and treats, common sense goes a long way. Please check with your veterinarian to avoid any potential problems.
