5 Beneficial ingredients for your dog

The secret to a balanced diet for your dog might be easier than you think. Check out this list of natural ingredients that will help to keep your dog’s tail wagging:


Carrots are low calorie treats and high in vitamin A and fibre. Raw, full-size carrots can help scrub away plaque from their teeth.

Green Beans

Combining green beans with your dog’s diet will help them to lose weight. Preferably, choose fresh green beans instead of canned.


Canned natural pumpkin will ease stomach issues. Pumpkin seeds will support your dog’s urinary health, too.


Low in gluten and high in soluble fiber, oatmeal helps to reduce cholesterol. They can calm bowel irregularity and balance hormones.

Sweet Potatoes

This sweet veggie helps your dog’s digestive health. Its antioxidant properties will also protect your dog from heart disease.

Make sure to always adjust your dog’s daily food allowance so they don’t gain weight while enjoying their delicious new snacks. Consult your vet before feeding to any dogs with health issues.
