Keeping our dogs healthy and happy is our priority and finding a proper balanced diet is the key to success. Adding “superfoods” to your dog’s daily diet is an easy way to improve the overall health of your pet.
These foods are naturally full of nutrients and the main ones are mentioned below. But, as with any diet, first discuss any and all changes with your veterinarian.
1. Apples (seedless)
Apples make an excellent treat for your dog. This fruit is loaded with fiber and are great for your pet. In addition, apples clean teeth and improve the breath of your animal.
Carrots have many vitamins and minerals that have great health benefits. Carrots contain beta-carotene that converts to vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A is ideal for bone health, vision and skin.
Bananas are an excellent diet enhancement for active dogs. Its natural sugars metabolize rapidly for this additional energy boost. They are the perfect treat to give your dog before heading out for a long walk or a trip to the park. In addition, bananas are full of vitamin C, potassium, amino acids and electrolytes.
4. Sweet potato
Sweet potatoes are rich in fiber and natural sugars. They have the perfect amount of sweetness that also provide many antioxidants to help prevent certain types of cancer. And dogs love the flavor of it!
This food is also known to have cancer fighting powers. It’s rich in lutein which helps protect the eyes of your puppy. Broccoli is also a great source of fiber, calcium and potassium.
Kelp (Laminariales) is a great source of calcium, folic acid, vitamin A and iodine. Veterinarians say they can improve energy, boost the immune system and even help in weight loss.
Quinoa is called the “mother of all grains,” because it is a highly nutritious seed filled with fiber and protein. It’s usually easy for dogs to digest and makes a great base of meals.
8. Raw local honey
That goes for dogs and humans! When your canine ingests small amounts of local pollen found on raw honey, it can increase his tolerance to seasonal allergens. Dogs with sensitive skin and eyes have experienced incredible improvements with this food!
We all know that dogs love to eat… However, you should introduce these new foods in small amounts, as not all dogs react the same way to a new diet.
