10 “superfoods” that you should include in your dog’s diet

Superfoods are perfect nutritious meals for your dog to have iron health. These meals are part of a diet full of vitamins that will help your dog in its day to day. Find out which is the ideal regimen for your pet to enjoy the best nutritional conditions!

There are foods, according to several scientific investigations, that are wonderful when it comes to improving the health of our dog due to the amount of properties -in the form of nutrients- they contain. That is why they are called SUPERFOODS for dogs.

This type of natural ingredients – according to the conversation that the veterinarian Juan Fernández has had with Wamiz – benefit the functioning of the immune system of dogs (to the point of preventing canine cancer ). However, before showing the complete list of foods, it is necessary to emphasize that none of them are miraculous.

What are superfoods for dogs?

1. Broccoli

This food is very special since it is capable of stimulating cellular enzymes that protect the canine organism in the same way that it eliminates cancerous toxins and prevents the growth of tumors. “We should not obsess over the possibility that our dog has cancer. As with people, these foods are a routine for prevention. If the case has to happen, it will happen”, emphasizes the specialist.

2. Chia

Yes, we are recommending you a seed! The reason is none other than its natural amount of omega 3 acids, calcium, potassium, magnesium or iron. Very important elements for your dog’s bones to grow healthy and strong while his muscles develop in the best of ways. “Usually the taste of chia is not pleasant for dogs. Therefore, we must camouflage them in some food price. For example, inside a piece of meat ”, says the vet.

3. Kale

This vegetable is full of carotenoids, which eliminate toxins and cleanse the body. Following the veterinarian’s instructions, this food should be taken after a culinary binge.

4. Pumpkin seeds

When you have to reward your dog for something he has done well, bet on giving him a handful of these nuggets that will contribute to the well-being of his prostate. At first he will probably reject them but you must insist because they are a source of minerals, fiber and vitamin K, E and B.

5. Sardines

You heard right! “When we recommend this type of fish, dog owners look at us with a strange face. However, when we explain to them that this fish is rich in omega 3 oils, beneficial for their hair, nails and body, their gesture changes completely”, says Fernández. To which he adds: “You always have to bet on canned sardines and a can should last for two or three meals. Neither should you abuse”.

6. Salmon

We continue with the fish. Specifically, it is full of minerals, proteins and omega 3 acids that will help lower your dog’s cholesterol levels. Feel free to give it cooked and mix it with your food. He’ll put on his boots!


7. Apples

Following the advice of the Asturian veterinarian, your dog should eat apples(without seeds) from time to time. This fruit will help clean your dog’s teeth. “If your pet has tartar problems, include apples in his diet,” says Fernández.

8. Eggs

If we had to choose a protein source, that would be the egg! In addition, this food is full of amino acids, nutrients and various vitamins ideal to improve eyesight and take care of your pet’s heart. “In addition, eggs are perfect for fighting stomach problems in dogs,” says the vet.

9. Bananas

In the case of choosing an ideal fruit for dogs that do a lot of exercise, you have to opt for bananas. During the conversation we had with Fernández, the doctor pointed out that bananas are perfect for active pets since they have a large amount of sugar that gives them energy instantly.

10. Sweet potato

This tuber is rich in antioxidants. “Every time an older dog comes to visit us, we recommend that their owners include this tuber in their diet since it is the best antioxidant there is,” says Fernández.
