The Awesome Health Benefits of Our New Lamb Recipe

Either way, these foods are worth considering integrating into your dog's diet. Create your meal plan with our lamb recipe now!

Lamb

Lamb is a lean meat rich in amino acids that provides the building block for muscle. This protein is a great source of omega 3 fatty-acids and B vitamins, which aid metabolism. Lamb also contains zinc, an essential mineral for the immune system and building healthy tissue.

Chickpeas

These beans are another great source of protein, as well as fiber for digestive health. They provide phytonutrients, which serve as supplemental antioxidants to protect the cells of the body.

Butternut Squash

Yellow-orange vegetables in particular have been shown to have health benefits in dogs who eat them on a regular basis. Squash is a great source of beta-carotene and vitamin A, which supports healthy vision and provides antioxidants. It also provides a steady supply of potassium to keep electrolytes in balance.

Cranberries

These berries contain compounds shown to reduce certain urinary tract infections, which may also help with oral health. They also contain vitamins E and C to prevent damage to cells from free radicals.

Kale

This green superfood is packed full of antioxidants, B vitamins, and vitamin K. Its health benefits, which include potential cancer prevention, are linked to its high concentration of antioxidants and phytonutrients.

Rutabaga

This vegetable provides a host of essential nutrients such as B vitamins to help maintain energy, minerals for bone health, and some healthy fiber for a normal digestive tract.
