As the popular saying goes, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away!” And because we love our furries so much, we want to help you keep them healthy and well-nourished by recommending these 5 must-have superfruits for them to enjoy.
Rich in vitamins A and C, dietary fiber, and calcium, blueberries are proven to help control sugar levels. The antioxidants from blueberries also help protect your furkid against free radicals.
Apples are a rich source of vitamin C and dietary fiber which aids in digestion. Apples also have high levels of pectin which helps lower cholesterol.
Mangoes are rich in vitamins A and C, and carotenoids which support eye and heart health. Mangoes are packed with nutrients that help boost your furkids’ immune system.
Papayas are an excellent source of vitamins A, C and E, calcium, phosphorus, and iron. The enzyme papain aids in the digestion of proteins and helps maintain a healthy digestive system.
Rich in vitamin C, dietary fiber, and manganese, cranberries help enhance iron and calcium absorption. High in antioxidants and phenols, this berry helps reduce the risk of chronic diseases like cancer.
Including a variety of superfruits like these in your furkids’ diet will provide him/her with a bunch of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that he may not receive from any other food sources.
Ask your veterinarian about how to include fruits to your dog or cat’s diet. Alternatively, you can also opt for pet food, like Wishbone, with naturally-added fruits into its recipes. See Wishbone’s gourmet pet food recipes to know more.
