Did You Know?
Bananas have a lot of perks, such as potassium for healthy heart + kidney, fiber to aid in gastrointestinal issues, and magnesium for strong bone growth. However, feed in moderation since they are high in carbs and sugar.
Eggs are a highly nutritious snack full of protein that’s easily digestible, great for dogs that easily get an upset stomach. They also contain essential amino acids and fatty acids that aid in healthy skin and coat.
Strawberries are the perfect low-calorie sweet treat! Also high in fiber, vitamin C and antioxidants.
