Cutting Carbs and Boosting Your Bowl
Cut the carbs and add some simple fresh ingredients to your pet’s bowl, that you already have in your fridge!
Kibble (no matter how expensive your bag is) needs a binder to keep its shape after being processed. This binder is a starch, carb, or pea/lentil. Go ahead, check! You should see anything from: potato, sweet potato, corn, rice, barley, peas, lentils, etc. These ingredients can cause weight gain, bloating, inflammation, etc.
We will give you options that you can find in your house, and/or at your local pet store that will help your pet feel full while you cut back on the amount of kibble you feed to help your dog maintain a healthy weight!
What you may find already at home:
Fruits: full of potassium, antioxidants, and fiber to stay full and healthy.
Vegetables: High in vitamins, minerals, and moisture
- Bell Pepper
- Alfalfa sprouts
Apple Cider Vinegar
- Apple cider vinegar helps digestion by increasing the stomach’s acid levels, which results in better absorption and fewer gastrointestinal symptoms like burps and gas. Apple cider vinegar promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria in the dog’s digestive tract. Some dog owners mix it into plain yogurt.
- Adding water to your dogs food bowl forces them to drink water, stay hydrated and become more full. Adding water also can help pull more flavors from the kibble, making it more palatable.
