Cranberries at Christmas
Known to accompany many a Christmas Dinner, cranberries have adorned our dinner plates for years and years. Providing a sweet and saucy condiment to our tasty turkey and all the trimmings, cranberries are a quintessential part of Christmas Dinners across the globe.
So as many venture to grocers, supermarkets and farm shops throughout the UK to start preparations for the best Cranberry sauce, we have a little something special for your four-legged friend that doesn’t require any effort at all. Understanding just how important cranberries are for our Christmases, here’s why you should give your pooch a taste of this blissful berry and a range of our tasty treats that showcase this Superfood in its finest form.
The Benefits of Cranberries
Given raw, dried or even cooked, cranberries can provide a well needed boost for our four-legged friends. With many classic condiments containing added sugars and sweeteners, giving your dog a jar of cranberry sauce isn’t advised this Christmas, but a handful of the super berries in their natural state can provide a pawfull of goodness to their health and wellbeing.
As one of the best anti-oxidants Mother Nature has to offer, cranberries can give your little fur babies a much needed immune boost. Actively improving immune function and your dog’s overall health and wellbeing, the anti-oxidant power of these little red fruits can help your dog avoids unwanted illness this winter. With wild winter winds posing potential problems for our dog’s skin and coats, cranberries can provide support for keeping coats as shiny and glossy as ever.
We all know the importance of fibre in our diets. Helping maintain a healthy gut, fibre is an essential part of your dog's health. Containing heaps of healthy fibre, cranberries are fantastic with dogs on weight management plans and can keep guts working exactly as they should. Assisting dogs who may occasionally suffer from constipation or diarrhoea, cranberries can help regulate bowel movements keeping your dog free from tricky tummy troubles.
Containing approximately 4 grams of fibre per cup, these blissful berries are considered one of the best antioxidants for dogs. Packed with fibre, cranberries can provide filling power making them ideal for dogs on weight management plans or who may be struggling with weight issues. Loaded with fruity goodness to keep them fuller for longer, they can contribute to weight loss and a healthy diet.
Magic for Muscles
Helping our dog’s bodies to stay fighting fit all year long, cranberries are packed with potassium power to aid in muscle maintenance. Considered an electrolyte, potassium is fantastic for regulating your pet’s overall bodily function encouraging both healthy cardiovascular and nervous systems.
In addition, potassium is also a fantastic tool in helping dogs absorb healthy nutrients meaning it’s a fantastic way to help your dog get any well-needed support when supplements or tablets may not be as easily tasted by your furry friend. Ultimately, when it comes to super fruits, cranberries are the top berry to choose.
