Paws For A Treat Carrot & Thyme
Dogs love carrots – right? With good reason, as carrots are a fantastic source of both soluble and insoluble fibre. This helps to maintain regularity of bowel movement, improves digestive health and protects the gut lining, helping to ease tummy upsets, bloating and even helps the body absorb nutrients. Carrots also contain a good amount of magnesium, plus they’re full of antioxidants, including: beta-carotene, lutein, lycopene and vitamin C which all contribute to great health.
Thyme is a dark horse of dog nutrition. This one little herb contains vitamins A, C and K, plus the unique compound thymol which is a powerful oral antiseptic that can help fight gingivitis and bad breath in your pet. Thyme also has antimicrobial properties which will help your pet fight fungus, bacterial, and viral pathogens. It can also help fight off a cough and other illnesses and there is even some evidence thyme can help increase the airflow in bronchial passages, easing asthma symptoms and other respiratory conditions! Thyme can also help remove parasites like hookworm, relieve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and other indigestion disorders .
