Let cool to room temperature and serve to your furbaby!


Olive Oil:

Extra virgin olive oil is an excellent source of vitamins, antioxidants, and omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. That means the same olive oil that's good for you can be just as good for your furry friend. Adding small amounts of it to your dog’s diet can contribute to a healthy coat, weight control, joint health, immunity boost, digestive health, and heart health!


Turmeric:

Provides a boost to the metabolism and helps weight loss. It provides benefits for cardiovascular, joint, and brain health. Turmeric can provide some relief from arthritis, and has been used to protect against cancer.


Ginger:

Is another tasty spice that contains anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. It can provide a boost to your dog’s digestive system and soothe nausea. Ginger can also improve your dog’s circulation. Fresh ginger is quite strong so when adding it to your dog’s diet it is best you to use dried or ground ginger.
