Sharing Some CARU Pet Food to #NourishWithLove

Back in December I co-hosted the CARU Pet Food Twitter party and they kindly sent me a variety of their Natural Stews for dogs.  Since I don’t eat cooked, wet food, when I receive a product like CARU I usually donate it to my local shelter or rescue.  However, this time I decided to nourish my cousins with love and give them the stews.

3 Reasons to Feed Your Dog Red Beets

In preparing Oz’s BARF raw diet, I generally mix up my own vegetable mix.  The mix I make has greens, sweet potatoes or carrots and, after some great blog reading, red beets.  If you have ever fed your dog Dr.Harvey’s Veg-to-Bowl, then your dog has eaten and if he/she is like Oz, has enjoyed red beets.  But why are the red beets in there?

Well, as my reading and further research turned up, red beets contain a variety of health-boosting nutrients which are great for senior dogs (and younger dogs as well).  If you know anything about red beets, then you may be concerned because these little powerhouse veggies contain the highest sugar content of all the vegetables.  But like many foods, if eaten in moderation they can add great benefits to your dog’s health.
