Our 4 legged family members deserve the best when it comes to nutrition and overall well-being. While we often hear about the importance of a balanced diet for dogs, there are specific ingredients that can provide a range of health benefits.
In this blog post, we'll explore two ingredients: cinnamon and pumpkin. These natural ingredients not only add autumnal flavour to your dog's meals but also offer an array of health benefits that can keep your innocent hound happy and healthy.
Benefits of cinnamon in your dog's diet
Cinnamon can be a wonderful addition to your dog's diet in small doses. Here are some of the health benefits of cinnamon for your canine companion:
Anti-Inflammatory: Cinnamon contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds that can help reduce inflammation in your dog's body. This is particularly beneficial for dogs with arthritis or joint pain.
Blood Sugar Regulation: Some studies suggest that cinnamon may help regulate blood sugar levels in dogs, which can be especially important for diabetic or overweight dogs.
Digestive Health: Cinnamon can aid in digestion by reducing bloating, and indigestion.
Oral Health: Cinnamon's natural antibacterial properties can contribute to better oral health in dogs, helping to combat bad breath and reduce the risk of dental issues.
Benefits of pumpkin in your dog's diet
Pumpkin is a superfood that contains all the goodness that can benefit your dogs overall health. Here are some of the ways that this autumnal vegetable can help your innocent hound:
Digestive Health: Pumpkin is rich in fibre, which can help regulate your dog's bowel movements and prevent diarrhoea or constipation. It's often recommended for dogs with sensitive stomachs.
Nutrients: Pumpkin is a good source of vitamins A and C, potassium, and beta-carotene, which are essential for your dog's overall health, including their skin and coat.
The Innocent Hound has launched a limited edition Wild Game Sausages which contains both ingredients - the sweetness of pumpkin and the comforting aroma of cinnamon. Made with 60% wild salmon and British venison, these treats are the perfect autumnal snack for your hound.
