Basic Veggies For Basic Dog Health

A Place For Paws has always operated under the thought that your pet DOES derive beneficial nutrition from raw veggies.  Dogs are opportunistic carnivores and scavengers and often can pick up needed nutrients from a thoughtful veggie mix.

In the past, APFP has offered two different veggie mixes as a supplement to your pet’s diet.  Its now time for a little change!  We decided to make things more basic, more simple, more to the point.  To that end we are blending our two

Nom Nom Nom!

mixes into one succinct product that will address all of your veggie needs!

A brief rundown of the new ingredient list as well as the main benefits of each veggie will make it as clear to you as it is to us that this is THE best veggie mix you can hope for!

Zucchini is a low glycemic veggie that is high in vitamin A as well as vitamin C which acts as an anti-oxidant as well as is touted for its anti-inflammatory properties – great for the joints!

Yellow squash is another vitamin rich veggie (Vitamin A, C and magnesium to name a few) that not only has been shown to help prevent cancer but also to have beneficial effects in heart, bone and eye health

Cabbage seems like such a low cost simple thing…but did you know that it is FULL of vitamin C for superior immune system health as well as vitamin E which contributes to skin, hair and eye health?

Carrots are above all sweet and a favorite of many pets.  In addition they are full of B vitamins, vitamin K and potassium making them helpful in preventing cancer and exceptionally good for heart and, of course, eye health

Spinach is a wonder veggie – anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties as well as bone and eye health from the plethora of vitamins it contains

Celery contains all sorts of nutrients – vitamin C, potassium, folic acid and calcium to name a few.  Did you know that it also is great for urinary tract health, relieving allergy symptoms and aiding in digestion?

Kale is a hidden treasure.  Full of vitamins A, K and C, kale also has anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties.  It is also integral to helping the body in detoxification.

Parsley is high in vitamin K which bodes well for your pet’s bone and joint health.  It also helps to keep a heart healthy and what can be more important than that?!

In addition to these veggies, our raw “salad” includes olive oil which contains essential fatty acids for beautiful skin and coat and is chock full of vitamins like K, A, D and E.  We also add apple cider vinegar which, in addition to being full of potassium in an easy to absorb form, it further aids in digestion and helps inhibit the growth of unfriendly bacterias.

There you have it – the new and improved Basic Veggies!  Streamlined to be one of the most nutrient packed vitamin rich veggie mixes that you can buy.  Why do the work yourself?  Time consuming and messy to boot!  Supplement your pet’s diet with wholesome pureed ready to eat veggies!
