The Top 5 Superfoods That Will Keep Your Dog Healthy
Sometimes it can be hard enough for us to remember to eat right and nourish our own bodies with the vitamins and minerals they crave, much less worry about whether or not our pets are eating a well-balanced diet. But in a time where most dog food is full of fillers, GMOs and by-products, it is more important than ever to make sure our furry friends are getting the important nutrients they need to live healthy and happy. Thankfully, rather than obsessing over crazy diets and ingredient lists, or counting our pup’s calorie intake, there are several nutrient-rich foods that have been dubbed “superfoods” on account of the numerous important health benefits they provide. These foods are usually easy to come by, not too expensive, and extremely beneficial for your four-legged bff. Giving your dog superfoods in conjunction with their normal diets will help ensure they are getting vital nutrients and vitamins. Read on for the top 5 superfoods you should be feeding your dog to supply them with extra benefits for a healthy and long life.
Salmon has amazing health benefits due to its high concentration of omega-3 fatty acids, protein, and vitamin B. This superfood also helps to boost the immune system and will do wonders to help nourish your pup’s coat and keep it shiny. You can give your dog leftover salmon chunks, or add fish oil to their food to ensure they are able to reap all the benefits of this superfood.
Blueberries are just as delicious as they are nutritious. Packed with fiber and antioxidants, these berries are the perfect addition to your dog’s diet. As an added bonus, blueberries are the perfect bite-size treat to indulge your dog with when he’s on his best behavior.
Many just associate pumpkin with pie, lattes, and autumn. However, this superfood actually contains nutrients that are beneficial all year round. The soluble and insoluble fibers found in pumpkins can help with digestive regularity. As long as you make sure you’re feeding your pup canned pure pumpkin, and not the sugary pie filling, your furry bff will surely be feeling its benefits.
We all know the old saying, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”, but did you know the same can go for the veterinarian? Sliced apples can help your dog’s teeth and supply him with natural soluble fibers and antioxidants. Add some peanut butter to the apple slices for a healthy protein-packed snack your dog won’t be able to refuse.
We like to think of eggs as the ultimate super food. Not only do they provide ample protein, but adding eggs to your pup’s diet promotes a healthy digestive tract, builds strong bones, and contains a healthy dose of important vitamins A, D, E and K. However, eggs unfortunately lose some of their key nutrients during heat pasteurization process or cooking. Thankfully, there is a new way to give your dog fertilized hen egg yolks that have been pressure pasteurized in a patented process to preserve the biological integrity and bioactivity of their nutrients.
Foretropin®, a unique bioactive composition derived from fertilized egg yolks, is the main ingredient in Myos Muscle Canine Formula. Scientific research has shown that Fortetropin up regulates the muscle building pathway and down regulates the muscle destruction pathway which results in more lean muscle. Sprinkling this nutrient rich, all natural super powder atop your dog’s food will keep him strong and promote longevity for life. Give your dog an extra boost with Foretropin, the ultimate superfood!
