Additive and sugar free oats are beneficial for dogs and help to keep them full. Although a carbohydrate they are packed full of plant fibre which helps to regulate cholesterol levels, aid digestion, reduce problems such as constipation, diarrhoea, gas and even vomiting. Oats are an excellent wheat substitute for dogs who are allergic to gluten and are great for dogs’ skin and fur.
Apples are a tasty and healthy treat for dogs and pack a hefty nutritional punch. They’re both low in calories and high in beneficial nutrients and fibre to contribute to overall gastrointestinal health. Vitamins A and C and other antioxidants can help with degenerative conditions like joint disease and help to keep teeth clean and fresh breath. (Care note Apples contain sugar and care should be taken when feeding to a diabetic dog.)
