Britain is known as being a nation of pet lovers, but are we doing enough for our furry and feathered friends? Sure we take them for walks and show them love but is there something else we could be doing that would make their life more enjoyable?
The answer is ‘YES’ there is.
By simply supplementing their existing diet with Chia seeds you will be adding an abundance of nutrients that they will love and significantly benefit from. These tiny odourless seeds are power packed nutritional dynamite!! In the same way they work on humans our pets will instantly reap the rewards.
Rich in Omega-3: Chia seeds contain a high level of omega 3 fatty acids that will help your pets skin condition, maintain a healthy coat, ease joints and aid brain and eye development and their heart health will benefit too.
Excellent source of Fibre: The abundance of fibre will help alleviate constipation and generate regular movements to maintain a healthy weight. Pets suffering from impacted anal sacs can almost be cured of the condition because of the high fibre profile.
Rich in Vitamins and Minerals: Chia contains Calcium which is great for healthy bones, Iron helps form haemoglobin that transports oxygen in the blood, Magnesium is vital for bone growth, Phosphorus is important in developing and maintaining healthy bones, Potassium is necessary for the correct functioning of muscles and nerves and Copper is essential in the formation of bone and connective tissue.
Increases energy levels: Your pet’s energy levels are increased due to the slow release of carbohydrates into their blood stream giving them a constant stream of energy. This enables them to feel energised for longer. As a result, Chia seeds also help stabilise blood sugar levels.
Complete source of Protein: This helps with growth and development.
Aids weight management: Chia seeds can keep your pets fuller therefore you can reduce the amount of food you are feeding them whilst giving them a healthy and balanced diet.
Hydration: By absorbing up to 10 times their size in fluids, Chia seeds will help to keep your pet hydrated whilst on long hot walks.
Convenience: Chia can easily be added to your pet’s food as it is neutral in taste. Just 1 teaspoon for small pets or 2 teaspoons for larger or 1/4 teaspoon for every 10 pounds of your pets body weight.
The above is only a snap shot of the health benefits that chia will provide your pet. So what are you waiting for? If you really love man’s best friend you owe it to him to give him the best.“A healthy pet is a happy pet and a pet that will be with you for a long time to come.”
Chia stores easily for long durations. It is odourless and tasteless so even the pickiest of pets won’t turn their nose up at it!!“It may also be recommended that the pet’s human owners start on chia at the same time just so they can keep up with their four-legged friends!”
