Most treats designed for adult dogs are safe for puppies, but there are several key things to look for in a treat before you give it to your puppy. Puppy owners should consider how hard the treat is, as new puppy teeth may be sharp but they tend to break easily, the ingredients, as puppies have pretty delicate stomachs and some ingredients are bad for young dogs, and how quickly they can eat it. Puppies aren’t well practiced in chewing off chunks they can handle, so owners need to monitor them and prevent them from swallowing large chunks, which could be a choking hazard or cause intestinal issues.
