Tuna offers benefits for your dog’s cardiovascular health as it contains lots of omega 3 fatty acids. It’s also rich in potassium, selenium, phosphorus and magnesium and a good source of vitamin B3, B6 and B12.
Make sure you only add cooked eggs to your dog’s diet as raw egg whites can cause biotin deficiency and is hard to digest. Cooked they contain digestible protein, riboflavin and selenium.
Olive oil does not only taste great to dogs, it also helps with weight loss and extends canine longevity.
Basil is a dog-approved herb and has antioxidant, antiviral, and antimicrobial properties.
Rosemary is high in iron, calcium and vitamin B6 and is an interesting antioxidant for dogs.
