Superfoods for Dogs

When it comes to healthy ingredients for dogs, superfoods are at the top of our list. Sweet potato, blueberries, apples, and pumpkin in dog food are all examples of healthy foods for dogs that come together with high quality meat proteins to help create a complete and balanced diet. Fruits and veggies aren’t just for humans–fruits and vegetables for dogs are just as helpful as a part of their daily diets and make for healthy additives to dog food. No need for any artificial additives when you have things like the benefits of apples and the benefits of carrots to keep your dog or puppy happy and healthy.
