Betsy's Veg Blend
We are proud to announce our new product, as formulated alongside Caroline of Hedgerow Hounds. Introducing our Pawsome Veg Blend. In this pack you will receive five paw moulds which are ready to serve and add to the bowl, simply and efficiently. No more having to cut through lumps of vegetables to just serve up a small required amount! These biodegradable tubs come in servings of 150g approx.
We have specifically chosen low GI vegetables for the seasonal vegetable & berry blends.
Starchy and sugary vegetables such as carrot for instance can be difficult to digest as well as potentially worsening the condition of itchy or yeasty dogs. All ingredients in the vegetable blend are particularly high in nutritional value as well as being easy to digest.
The addition of suitable vegetables, correctly prepared, offer many health benefits and have an alkalizing effect on the body. The phytonutrients found in plants, such as leafy greens, herbs and berries, have been shown to protect the body from serious illnesses and fed alongside our range of raw meals, support optimal health.
The ingredients chosen provide soluble and insoluble fibre which benefit the good gut bacteria. And as we now know, around 80% of the immune system is situated in the gut, so it is vital to keep it in peak health.
We take great care in sourcing the highest quality ingredients and believe in the importance of supporting local growers as well as celebrating seasonal variation. We are proud to have worked with a local supplier who grows the vegetables himself.
