Every dog deserves a treat, whether to affirm good behaviour, as an in-between snack or to celebrate Christmas or other such festive occasions. A biscuit that contains sugar, dairy or preservatives is no good and can lead to a variety of adverse medical conditions like skin allergies. Jenny Morris is one of South Africa’s most popular celebrity chefs. Together with Vondi’s, they have produced a range of healthy biscuits that are tasty and affordable.
MINT – Skin ailments and allergies are caused by inflamed cells which are caused by acidity. Mint reduces excess acidity and calms nerves. It is digestive, soothing, relaxing and sleep inducing. It is a digestive alkaliser and prevents mucus formation and sinus blocking. ROOIBOS – Rooibos (“red bush”) is proudly South African and is packed with many antioxidants and minerals. It promotes healthier skin, mainly because of its high concentration of Zinc and Vitamin D. Rooibos is also known for its anti-inflammatory properties. It boosts the immune system and fights free radicals. Immunity is everything and healthy pets are less likely to be affected by virus, bacteria, parasites and allergens.
