5 Fab Foods for Fidos and Felines

We’ve all heard about superfoods that we should be adding to our diet because of their antioxidant and nutrient-rich properties, but did you know there are similar foods for our pets, too?

Michele Dixon, a health and nutrition specialist with Petcurean, offers her list of five ingredients to consider for your pet’s diet. Some can be found in premium-quality recipes for cats and dogs, so be sure to read the list of ingredients next time you are purchasing your pet’s food.

  • Pumpkin — We know that pumpkins are great for carving and delicious in pies, but pumpkin also is a source of fiber for pets that is high in vitamin A and beta-carotene.
  • Cranberries — For many of the same reasons that they are good for humans, cranberries also are good for our pets. They are high in anti-oxidants and also are a good source of fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K and manganese, which aids in pet urinary tract health.
  • Papaya — This delicious and exotic tropical fruit is rich in vitamin B, which aids in cell metabolism, and contains papain, an enzyme that can help in a pet’s digestion.
  • Chickpeas — Many of us enjoy chickpeas in salads, hummus, and falafel balls. They also are good for our pets because they are rich in prebiotics, which stimulates the activity of bacteria in the digestive system and aids healthy digestion.
  • Cottage cheese — This versatile food is a good source of riboflavin, calcium, phosphorus, and selenium for our pets. Cottage cheese contains only small amounts of lactose, so a very small amount would not be an issue for intolerant dogs.
