Aside from flavor, herbs offer a whole lot of nutrients that our fur-babies can benefit from.
Make their mealtime more appetizing and nutritious by adding the following six healthy herbs in their food!
With Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, and Potassium, basil plays an active role in optimizing your fur-baby’s health since it contains antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Rosemary has loads of Vitamins A and C, Iron, Calcium, Folate, and Manganese. It also helps improve digestion and acts as a powerful antioxidant protecting your pets from damage caused by free radicals.
Thyme can be a good source of dietary fiber, antioxidants, Vitamins A and C, Riboflavin, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Copper and Manganese. Thymol, an active component naturally found in thyme, helps inhibit fungal and bacterial growth.
Oregano is rich in Vitamins A, C, and K coupled with Omega-3s, Calcium, Iron, Manganese and dietary fiber. Because of its strong antibacterial properties, oregano can help cleanse toxins inside your pet’s body.
This fragrant herb helps soothe an upset stomach, reduces gas, and relaxes the digestive tract during digestion. Rich in Vitamins C, A, Calcium, and Magnesium, peppermint is a healthy herb your pet can munch on and can even help keep his breath fresh.
Chamomile is rich in Vitamins C and B, both of which are beneficial for digestion. Chamomile calms the nerves and stomach, as it serves as a gentle sedative for pets suffering from anxiety or bloating problems.

Because dogs and cats have a stronger sense of smell, aromas and scents play an important role to keep them interested in their food.
