Dog Friendly Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie Recipe
This yummy dog friendly smoothie contains an assortment of nourishing ingredients known for their anti-inflammatory effects.
Unfortunately, just like people, dogs also suffer from a range of inflammatory illnesses, so adding some nutrient packed, inflammation-fighting foods to their diet can be of great benefit.
Due to their lack of salivary amylase, dogs struggle to break down the cellulose and starch found in fruits and vegetables, so providing them in a blended form via a dog friendly smoothie makes them far more digestible and ensures that the nutrients have increased bioavailability.
Can be fed 2 to 3 times per week.
