Fad diets come and go but a diet that has a healthy amount of whole foods will always be on-trend – for humans and their dogs. Todd Graham, Founder of Australian Pet Organics shares five ingredients you should consider putting in your dog’s diet. The next time you do your shopping, put these nutrient-packed whole foods on your list for both you and your furry friend.
Blueberries are rich in antioxidants which can help slow down the aging process by fighting free radicals responsible for cell damage. They also contain vitamins A, C and K which help to support the immune system. Packed with flavour, blueberries make a great low-calorie snack.
Nutrient-dense, carrots are rich in beta carotene and antioxidants. They’re also high in fibre and have been known to support your pet’s digestion. If your furry family member has a tendency to produce loose stools, introducing small amounts of carrot can help. When served raw, they also double as a low-calorie treat and teeth cleanser.
It’s called a superfood for a reason. Kale is rich in Vitamins K1, Vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, and potassium. These vitamins support the health of your dog’s vision, muscles and immune system. Kale is best served in moderation.
If you’re looking to boost your dog’s digestive health, sweet potato is one to put on the shopping list. High in fibre, sweet potato is great for dogs that experience constipation. They also help them maintain healthy and strong muscles they need to stay active.
This leafy green is a rich source of antioxidants, as well as Vitamin C – which has a role in maintaining healthy cartilage, tendons and bones. It’s also packed with Vitamin K which can help pups maintain normal blood flow, function and processes.
