Dogs love the crispy, crunchy texture and delicious taste of Springtime's Sweet Potato. Slowly oven-dried for peak nutrition, Sweet Potato Pieces are rich in dietary fiber and healthy antioxidants, including carotenoids and vitamin A.
In South America, sweet potato has been valued for its health benefits for thousands of years. Sweet potato (which is different than the white potato) helps maintain health and longevity with its abundant nutrients, such as vitamins A and C, vitamin B6, magnesium, iron, potassium, calcium, and copper.

It is important to note that sweet potatoes are different and not related to white potatoes. Regular white potatoes are part of the Solanaceae, or Nightshade family, while sweet potatoes are a part of the Convolvulaceae family (the Morning Glory is a plant cousin). For a dog or even a person with digestion difficulties, white potatoes contain possible gut irritants such as alkaloids and leptin and should be avoided. Sweet potatoes, on the other hand, can help regulate and soothe the digestive tract as it contains almost twice as much fiber as white potatoes. Sweet potatoes are also much lower on the glycemic index, and some studies show that they may help modulate insulin metabolism.
The Rahlf clan all agree about Springtime Treats!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Springtime! We use many of your supplements for dogs and cats. Bug Off Garlic Chewables… FABULOUS! Our dogs think the Bully Sticks, Sweet Potato Pieces, and Beef Tendons are WONDERFUL! Great prices, packaging, and shipping, and customer service is great – very knowledgeable and helpful.
I'm hoping this picture will work. What a challenge getting everyone together with four Collies (three with special needs). Left to Right: Laddie, Jill, Ellen and Trajan. Laddie and Jill are deaf and visually impaired. Ellen is deaf and totally blind. They were all born this way. I have been involved with special needs dogs, particularly Collies, for over 15 years. The Tri, Trajan, is a goofy, "normal" Collie boy.
Again, thank you. I think Springtime is one of the BEST companies I have entrusted for products for my pets.
