6 Canine Super Foods for Improving Your Dog’s Health
Blueberries Blueberries are a good source of fiber and are rich in antioxidants, both of which are important for super-active dogs. Try tossing your pup a handful of blueberries after an energetic day at The Doggy Dojo!
Apple cider vinegar Apple cider vinegar may not be the tastiest canine super food, but it does play an important role in ridding your dog of excess gastrointestinal bacteria and re-calcifying your pup’s bones. Sneak a pinch into your dog’s food once per day.
Fish oil Fish oil improves your pup’s skin health and makes your dog’s coat shiny. The magical supplement can also help ease arthritis in older dogs and encourages calm behavior in hyperactive pups.
Kale From salads to smoothies, many health-conscious folks have recently hopped on the kale bandwagon. Don’t leave your dog in the dust! The leafy green is rich in calcium, iron, and vitamins A, C and K.
Coconut oil Using coconut oil when preparing a meal for your dog is an easy way to add an extra kick of antioxidants to your pup’s diet. Coconut oil is also rich in vitamin E, which gives your dog’s coat a pretty sheen.
Carrots Improve your dog’s heart health and eyesight with the super powers of beta-carotene. Feed your pup a few baby carrots as a snack, or mix some cooked carrots into her dinner bowl for added flavor and variety.
It’s so easy to incorporate healthy, nutrient-rich cuisine into your dog’s diet. Bonus: You probably already have a few of these canine super foods stocked in your kitchen!
