Activated charcoal absorbs toxins from your dog’s gut and binds to them. We use medicinal grade, suitable for human consumption.
Coconut oil and flour
Coconut oil can help balance the thyroid and assist with weight loss, plus it helps improve digestion and nutrient absorption.
It also has a host of other health benefits, including
– improving cognitive function in older dogs
– antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal agents that prevent infection and disease
– eases inflammation and can help with the discomfort of arthritis
– reduces bad breath
– helps to expel parasites
– assists in the healing of digestive disorders such as inflammatory bowel syndrome
Adding coconut flour to baked goods lowers the glycemic index (a measure of the rate that a food increases blood sugar). It aids metabolism due to its high medium-chain fatty acid content, which acts as a nutrient and metabolic regulator in the body. Coconut flour is high in fibre and the fibre from coconut flour acts as a prebiotic, helping probiotic bacteria thrive and encouraging optimal digestion . (source).
Ginger helps with nausea and vomiting
Parsley is packed with vitamin K, which according to studies by the Arthritis Foundation, destroys inflammatory cells that contribute to rheumatoid arthritis. Parsley also has decent amounts of vitamins C and A, and iron. It’s a diuretic and can help with liver and kidney detoxification. Parsley is high in chlorophyll which promotes digestive health, fights infection, supports the immune system, and can both treat and prevent bad breath.
As well as freshening the breath, peppermint is a source of vitamins A, B1, B2, C, as well as the minerals calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese and selenium.
We DO NOT USE English mint (pennyroyal mint) as it is poisonous to dogs.
The fibre in pumpkin helps food move through the digestive system, which helps keep the cells in the stomach and colon healthy. Pumpkin is also a good source of beta-carotene.
