What to add to a Dry/Wet Food Diet.

These are just some examples of what you can add to your dogs dry foods to make all the additional Nutritional needs that dry foods don’t…

All vegetables should be lightly steamed and liquidised or finely chopped before feeding (don’t feed fruits or vegetables to dogs with yeast issues)

  1. Orange or Yellow Bell Peppers: Can reduce the risk of bladder cancer by 92% (Purdue University published that study)
  2. Blueberries : Packed with Antioxidants
  3. Spinach: contains large amounts of vitamins A, B, C, and K. It also contains iron, antioxidants, beta-carotene, and roughage, which stimulate the digestive tract
  4. Kale: contains large amounts of vitamins A, B, C, and K. It also contains iron, antioxidants, beta-carotene, and roughage, which stimulate the digestive tract
  5. Garlic: Excellent in the right dose for parasite control (Fleas and Ticks have the highest success) for Feeding guidelines click : Here
  6. Ginger: Packed with ligament supporting Manganese.
  7. Turmeric: active compound “Curcurmin” is the best natural anti-inflammatory, great for arthritis and joint issues. (Main ingredient for Golden Paste)
  8. Coconut Oil : Excellent source of MCTs (Many have started using it as a way of getting fats into pancreatic dogs , please seak Veterinary advice on this before going down that route)
  9. Sardines: Helps meet Vitamin D and E Requirements
  10. Organic Apple Cider Vinegar: Soothes itchy skin, fights yeast, helps the body break down fats , parasite control .
  11. Probiotics: Great way to boost the Gut Flora and Support the Immune System.
