Paws For A Treat Apple & Oat
A delicious treat that has proven a massive success. Aside from an obvious punch of vitamin C, apples are full of antioxidants that help to improve gut health. Apples are also a great source of quercetin, known as ‘Nature’s Benadryl’ which helps to fight off the harmful effects of allergies, reduce irritation, redness, and inflammation. They are also packed with polyphenols which can help reduce chronic inflammation, promote balanced gut flora and detoxify the liver.
Oats are the ultimate healthy source of fibre, even if your dog is grain-sensitive. Some dogs can be quite sensitive to other grains due to their high gluten content, but oats serve as a perfect substitute for dogs who otherwise cannot eat grains. The soluble fibre in oatmeal is also able to help regulate the level of glucose in your dog’s blood. On top of all that, oats contain vitamin B5, useful in the metabolism of vitamins and is vital in the processes which convert proteins and fats into energy.
