Add the following foods to your pup’s diet hidden in meals or as tasty treats.
Kale is full of calcium, iron, and vitamins a, c and k. To feed your dog kale, it is best to hide it in their usual meals.
Broccoli is another green full of nutrients. It aids digestion, repairs skin damage, supports heart health and has cancer fighting properties.
