Add these powerhouse foods to your dog’s diet and reap the benefits.

1. Turmeric
Turmeric contains a powerful natural anti-inflammatory called curcumin. When added to your dog’s daily diet, turmeric can help prevent a whole host of problems by reducing chronic inflammation, which is now believed to be one of the major root causes of age-related issues, including joint degeneration, heart problems, declining mental faculty, and even cancer.
Dosage: Add ⅛ teaspoon per 10 pounds of body weight daily to your dog’s dinner.

2. Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is a superfood that has a whole host of benefits, including improved skin and coat condition, better digestion, and allergy reduction, thanks to antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal properties.

How to administer: Give orally on a spoon (most dogs love the taste) or add a spoon to your dog’s dinner.

Give unsweetened, natural coconut chips as a naturally sweet, crunchy treat dogs love.

Apply directly to the skin and coat to make it softer and healthier.

3. Apple Cider Vinegar

Thanks to its enzymes, gut-friendly bacteria, and a slew of important vitamins and minerals, apple cider vinegar confers a whole host of benefits, including boosting the immune system, improving skin and coat condition (think reducing itchiness, dander, hot spots, fleas), and fighting urinary tract infections. It’s also thought to help with candida (aka yeast).

Dosage: 1 teaspoon for small dogs and 1 tablespoon for medium-large dogs, added to their food once a day. You can add it to your dog’s drinking water if your dog doesn’t mind the taste. Be sure to use organic, unpasteurized (raw), unfiltered, naturally fermented apple cider vinegar. We like Bragg's. Do NOT use white distilled vinegar.
