Health benefits

Brown rice can help dogs reduce several health risks like obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease and some cancers. It is a great source of insoluble fiber and is rich in manganese, magnesium and selenium. Antioxidants promote weight loss.

Apples help to freshen your dog’s breath and are known for high levels of vitamin A and C. Always remove the seeds as they are a choking hazard!

Chicken is great for dogs and one of the main ingredients used in many kibble brands.

But NEVER serve raw or cooked chicken bones!
