High in vitamins A & C, the old adage ‘An Apple a Day Keeps the Doctor Away’ may also be true for dogs. Full of phytonutrients, flavanoids & antioxidants apples can help humans to regulate blood sugar, support the cardiovascular system and prevent heart disease through regulating blood fat levels. Apples also promote digestive health by helping to keep things regular & promoting the growth of good bacteria in the gut. There has been promising research done in the areas of apples and cancer prevention, particularly with lung, breast and colon cancers. Apples are a safe, healthy and low calorie treat for dogs and we are firm believers that the extensive research done on the health benefits of apples carries over to our sweet dogs as well. Apples are included in our Heart Smart Biscuits for their promising cardiovascular wellness benefits.
Tip of the week
REPEL BUGS NATURALLY... With the summer months now upon us, bugs and ticks are out in full force and can prove to be a menace to all. Did you know that Geranium Essential Oil can be used as a natural bug repellent? We place 3 drops of oil on the inside of our dog's collar and not only does he smell divine, but we find that it really does keep the bugs away. *Please note that essential oil in full concentration can be a skin irritant so it should never go directly on skin. If your dog does not have a thick coat of fur, you can place 3 drops of geranium essential oil in 1 Tbsp. of coconut oil and mix together. You can use the oil directly on the coat, particularly around the neck and where the tail meets the spine. Consider using it on yourself as well! We love local British brands Tisserand (www.tisserand.com) & Baldwins (www.baldwins.co.uk) for essential oils as their products are pure and cruelty-free!
