Every dog deserves a treat, whether to affirm good behaviour, an in-between snack or to celebrate Xmas or any other festivity. A biscuit that contains sugar, dairy or preservatives is no good and can lead to a variety of adverse medical conditions like skin allergies.
Jenny Morris is one of South Africa’s most popular celebrity Chefs. Together with Vondis, they have produced a range of healthy biscuits that are tasty and affordable:
ROOIBOS & MINT FOR ITCHY SKIN & ALLERGIES
MINT – Skin ailments and allergies are caused by inflamed cells which are caused by acidity. Mint reduces excess acidity and calms nerves. It is digestive, soothing, relaxing and sleep inducing. It is a digestive alkaliser and prevents mucus formation and sinus blocking.
ROOIBOS – Rooibos(“red bush”) is proudly South African and is packed with many antioxidants and minerals.
It promotes healthier skin, mainly because of its high concentration of Zinc and Vitamin D. Rooibos is also known for its anti-inflammatory properties.
It boosts the immune system and fights free radicals. Immunity is everything and healthy pets are less likely to be affected by virus, bacteria, parasites and allergens.
COCONUT OIL FOR A GLOSSY COAT
COCONUT OIL – The benefits of coconut oil are enormous. Amongst many things it has Antimicrobial, antibacterial and antifungal properties. It makes their coat shine beautifully and naturally and prevents skin irritation and infection. It also improves digestion and alleviates allergies and eliminates bad breath in dogs
ROSEHIP & DEVILS CLAW FOR ARTHRITIS
For adult or aging companions, supplementing diet with enriched natural minerals and vitamins is well advised. This is especially true for dogs and cats that are likely to experience arthritic and hip dysphasia problems, which is very common with large breed dogs and almost all aging animals. Devils Claw and Rosehip is a must for all aging animals.
DEVILS CLAW – For thousands of years, the Khoisan people have used devil’s claw root in remedies to treat pain and inflammation and many other medical ailments. Devil’s claw is used for degenerative joint diseases such as arthritis, for back pain, and as an appetite stimulant and digestive tonic. Scientific evidence supports the use of devil’s claw root to help relieve pain and inflammation in people with arthritis and other painful disorders. The same would apply for our pets.
ROSEHIP – The pain-relieving properties of rosehip, which has previously been linked to reduced inflammation in osteoarthritis.
Scientists have found that powder made from a wild variety of rosehip, Rosa canina, is better at reducing pain in patients than glucosamine, a treatment prescribed by many vets.
The Daily Telegraph in its headline claimed that Rosehip was ‘better than painkillers’ for arthritis” . “Researchers have found that it is three times more effective than standard paracetamol at relieving pain and 40% more effective than Glucosamine.
SPIRULINA FOR IMMUNITY & WELL-BEING
SPIRULINA – Spirulina enhances overall immunity, promotes a healthy gut and overall well- being. Spirulina is an excellent supplement for a healthy skin and lustrous coat. It enhances appetite and promotes fresher breath
Spirulina contains a remarkable combination of vegetable protein, vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and powerful antioxidants. These vital substances work in synergy to assist in immune enhancement, disease prevention, the promotion of healthy bowel flora and general well-being.
Spirulina has the highest protein content of any natural food. Spirulina contains between 65 and 70% protein. This is 270% more protein than fish, 334% more than beef and 556% more than tofu.
DIATOMACEOUS EARTH FOR DEWORMING & PARASITE CONTROL
DIATOMACEOUS EARTH – Diatomaceous Earth may be quite a mouthful to pronounce but it has some remarkable health properties. It is an effective natural de-wormer and parasite cleanser. Parasites live in your pet’s intestinal tract, causing nutritional problems and physical irritation, thus affecting their health. You can safely and effectively eradicate them with Diatomaceous Earth.
Diatomaceous Earth also has many other health benefits. It also helps to attract and absorb bad bacteria, herbicides, pesticides, food additives, artificial hormones, heavy metals, drug residues, viruses and toxins and helps excrete it from the animal’s body.
Diatomaceous Earth also contains an array of trace minerals to feed and nourish your pet. One of the minerals that it contains in abundance is Silica. Silica is a vital trace mineral required by the animal’s body for strong and flexible joints, glowing skin, coat health, stronger hair and bones.
