If you’re reading this, we already know your dog’s health is extremely important to you. We all want our dogs to live long, healthy lives. That’s no shock.
Disease fighting foods can help!
We’re sure you have heard the saying ‘you are what you eat.’ That’s true. Literally.
Eating healthy will help you stay healthy- and that goes for both ourselves and our pups.
Disease Fighting Food #1: Blueberries
Blueberries are jam packed full of fiber, antioxidants, Vitamin C, and Vitamin K.
Blueberries are known to assist in the prevention of obesity, colon cancer, and heart diseases. Plus, they help prevent memory loss in senior dogs.
With that said, don’t overload your dog with blueberries. A handful of fresh, organic blueberries is sufficient each day.
P.S.- Be sure to rinse off the blueberries prior to feeding. This goes for ALL fruits and veggies for both us and our dogs!
Disease Fighting Food #2: Coconut Oil
Coconut oil has become the new ‘craze’ with health fanatics for people. But, coconut oil can help our dogs, too!
Coconut oil has special fatty acids resulting in a ton of benefits including:
- Obesity prevention
- Immune system booster
- Healthy teeth
- Flea and tick repellent
- Healthy brain function
If you’re interested in adding coconut oil to your dog’s diet, it can go right into their daily food intake. The recommended daily amount is approximately 1 teaspoon per 10 pounds of body weight.
