Spring means more crops of fresh produce

With more fresh fruit and vegetables available, you can add more healthy treats to your dog’s diet, such as kale and broccoli - why not steam or blanch the vegetables to help retain as many nutrients as possible before freezing them for a tasty treat on a warm day. You can also use this as a great excuse to make sure your dog's overall diet is giving them all of the nutrition and vitamins needed to be as healthy on the inside as they are on the outside.

Spring means winter skin is banished

We all know the harsh winter weather can wreak havoc on our own skin and it is really no different for our pets because colder weather can mean our dogs suffer from dry skin during the winter months too. To give your dog a helping hand make sure his diet is packed full of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids – both play an important role in maintaining healthy skin.
