Our recommended daily allowance

Small dogs such as Chihuahuas, French Bulldogs, Yorkshire Terriers, Boston Terriers, Miniature Poodles and Dachshunds should be given around a 1/4 of a teaspoon of coconut oil daily. The mini hearts and tiny teddies are pawfect for these size of dogs.

Larger dogs should be given a teaspoon of coconut oil per 10lbs of weight. One teaspoon equates to one of the regular size paw treats.

Original Flavour Treats

Despite how it looks, the original flavour treats are NOT chocolate, they are Brewer's Yeast. This is rich in protein and nutrients is an ideal supplement to help to improve and maintain your animal's health. One of the main constituents is protein which is in a form that is easily digestible to many animals and can help with growth and recovery. The prebiotic nature of brewer's yeast can also help to improve gut flora and this will have a beneficial effect on any digestive ailments and can help to relieve anxiety caused by poor digestion. Brewer's yeast also contains many of the B complex vitamins as well as being a rich source of chromium. These enable your pup to breakdown and more easily digest the proteins, fats and carbohydrates in its diet thereby giving you more nutrition from the same amount of food. Brewer's yeast is often recommended by holistic vets to help strengthen dogs' immune systems.
