Spring Has Sprung

Good human food to feed your best friend for optimum health benefits 

Although many human foods can be detrimental to dog's health, like chocolate, some can lead to optimum health benefits. Carrots have great health benefits for your canine companion. Raw carrots are great for teeth cleaning and also satisfy your dog's need to chew. A few teaspoons, and up to a tablespoon, a day of  plain greek yogurt can also benefit your dogs health. Yogurt is good for you and your dog's healthy intestinal flora. Another important supplement for your dog is DHA/EPA omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids improve your dog's coat quality and are good for heart and brain function. I give child chewable from Trader Joes to my dogs, alternatively I give them Udons oils.
