Pumpkin and Turmeric 250g
Our Pumpkin and turmeric treats are good for dogs of all ages.
The ingredients are wholesome and nutritious to keep your fur-baby in tip-top health. They have been carefully selected to create a recipe that targets certain ailments, but they are also safe to be consumed by any other dogs looking longingly at them, so they don’t need to be left out.
The pumpkin and turmeric treats are specifically beneficial for dogs in need of natural anti-inflammatories. This will help with sore joints, sensitive guts, or inflamed allergic skin, just to name a few.
Turmeric is the super-ingredient in this recipe. It is both anti-inflammatory and an anti-oxidant. The active ingredient is curcumin, which has many medicinal properties to it. Over 6000 scientific studies have been performed on turmeric, providing a huge amount of evidence on its benefits; more evidence than some licensed drugs!
Inflammation can be found all throughout the body, and it is not always obvious. Arthritis, cancer, upset guts, kidney disease, bladder infections, and skin allergies are all diseases which can cause inflammation in the body, and can frequently cause pain. Therefore, if inflammation is decreased, the welfare of the dog will significantly improve with turmeric. The antioxidant properties of turmeric will help improve the future life of our dogs. Antioxidants fight against free radicals which can damage cells. They can also stop precancerous cells becoming cancerous, and if cancer was to happen, they interfere with growth, spread and development. Half of all dogs will get cancer of some form, and therefore turmeric is an excellent ingredient for protecting against it.
The other superfood in this recipe is pumpkin, which has been added to this recipe in the form of seeds. Pumpkin seeds are full of fibre, vitamins and minerals, as well as a very clever amino acid known as cucurbitin. Fibre is essential for keeping the guts regular. It draws water into the guts when there is constipation, and encourages water absorption when there is diarrhoea. This helps keep our furry friends’ guts comfortable.
Cucurbitin is an amino acid which can also reduce worm burdens. It paralyses the worms which causes them to die off. Wormers from the vet should also be occasionally given, but fewer drugs will be needed if cucurbitin is used in conjunction, leading to a more natural, healthy lifestyle. These magical ingredients are supported by chia seeds, oat flour, brown rice flour, black pepper and coconut oil, to ensure each of the treats are brimmed with the maximum amount of minerals, vitamins and omega oils we could possibly put in.
All Pawsome treats are certified organic by the ACO. That means that every ingredient is environmentally friendly, and totally free from pesticides, synthetic fertilisers, and ionising radiation. They are also not genetically modified in any way.
