7 Superfoods You Should Include In Your Dog’s Diet (INFOGRAPHIC)

Many people say that giving food scraps isn’t very good for our furbabies. In fact, this isn’t completely true. As it turns out, some foods are good for them. Furthermore, those foods can be a nice change from the usual treat that you’re giving to your dog.

The marvelous benefits of superfoods

I’m talking about special foods called superfoods. Superfoods are all the rage now! But what are superfoods exactly? Here is what the Oxford Dictionaries had to say:

“A nutrient-rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being.”

In fact, superfood is a term invented by the medias to describe foods with health properties. Some organizations and dieticians claim that the term superfood is just a marketing tool that you should be careful when serving those types of foods because their health properties aren’t proven.

But superfoods have genuine health benefits that can be added to your dog’s diet. They may not be able to cure diseases, but they are packed with nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants that can benefit both humans and dogs.

Choosing the right superfoods for your dog

Dogs will enjoy numerous types of food as treats, but the trick is to choose the ones that are good for them. That’s why superfoods are a great choice. Naturally, not all dog like the same ones and it’s up to you to try them out to find the right combinations.

The first important point is to check for allergic reactions. You always have to be careful and check for any bad reactions when introducing a new food to your dog’s diet. The second crucial point is that some fruits and vegetables can be harmful to dogs.

7 superfoods to add to your dog’s diet

That’s why the team at EntirelyPets has put together this list of superfoods and has created this useful infographic. With this infographic, you’ll learn which superfoods are the most beneficial to your dog’s health. Here are the 7 superfoods included in the infographic:

  • Carrots
  • Blueberries

For each superfood, you’ll learn health benefits, nutrition facts as well as other interesting facts. Whether you add them to their regular dog food, or you serve them as a tasty treat, these superfoods are an excellent way to keep your dog healthy and happy.

    Thanks for sharing this gf! Hope you’re having a great Tuesday!

    1. Hi Cori,

      Thanks, gf! I knew that dogs could eat carrots and broccoli, but I didn’t know about the other foods in the infographic! As it turns out, dogs are more like humans than we might have thought, hihi!

      I’m glad you liked the infographic! Hope you had a great Tuesday! 🙂

    1. Hi Diana and welcome,

      I give carrots to my little girl Myrka too, and I was actually surprised when I saw all the different foods I could safely give to her.

      Thanks for stopping by and I’m glad that you liked my post! Have a great Thursday! 🙂

  2. Hi Nataly,

    I have two dogs. One has a sensitive stomach but the other will eat all his veggies. Loves to eat Broccoli, asparagus, carrots and so on.

    Yes…I give them both fish oil every morning. Guess what their favorite snack is? Coconut oil. I’m finding that their coat and skin is so much smoother. And even the little guy with his sensitive stomach loves it.

    Thanks for the wonderful infographic.

      My Myrka loves to eat veggies too! She even has her special plate with cucumbers and carrots in it, and I give her some every night at dinnertime.

      It’s a great habit to give your dogs fish and coconut oil. And you’re right, it’s good for their skin and coat.

      I’m glad that you liked the infographic! Have a great Thursday! 🙂

  3. Hey Nataly! I love the article and that infographic is awesome! I’ve tried over the years to give Titan some of these things. He’s not having them. He’s a meat and taters kind of boy. Now Zue is a bit different. She ate watermelon that other night so she might eat some veggies. I just haven’t tried yet. Thanks for sharing this with us! Already passed it along!

    1. Hi Brenda,

      Not all dogs are the same. They’re just like us, we all have different tastes! It’s like you said, if Zue ate watermelon, maybe she’ll try some veggies.

      I’m glad that you liked the infographic, gf! Thanks for sharing it! Have a great Thursday! 🙂

  4. We don’t have a dog, so I didn’t know you could feed your dog all these things. That infographic is really great. I will be sharing this with my Mother-in-Law so she can improve her little dog’s healthy. Thanks!

  5. Hey Nataly,

    Wow, thanks for sharing this with us. I didn’t know about these “super foods” but I would of course assume that they would be good for dogs.

    I can’t get my girl to eat carrots or Broccoli but I did accidentally drop a brussel sprout off my plate not long ago and was shocked that she ate it. I might have to look into these others though.

    I do give her coconut oil everyday because I heard it was good for their breath. I think it’s helping but it hasn’t quite been a month yet but I do know it’s really good for them.

    Love this infographic by the way, nice job.

    1. Hi Adrienne,

      You’re right, these superfoods are all good for dogs. It’s the first time that I hear of a dog liking Brussel sprouts, but if it’s good for her why not?

      I didn’t know that coconut oil was good for their breath. I should give some to Myrka! I’ll look into it for sure!

      I’m glad that you liked the infographic! Thanks for commenting! Have a great weekend! 🙂
