When it comes to your Furr Baby, all pup parents know that their health is just as important as your own, and only the best will do when it comes to their diet. Making sure your dog drinks enough water is key for keeping them healthy and happy, but what if you could supercharge their drinks with a host of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants?
Here Louise Toal, the founder of Furr Boost, shares why you should consider adding a healthy hydration drink like Furr Boost to your dog’s diet…
Ensuring your pooch is well-hydrated is essential to their overall health and wellbeing, since a dog’s body is 80% water, the same as a human’s body! Every function in your dog’s body needs enough water to work properly, and severe dehydration can lead to illness, organ damage, and even death.
There are lots of ways to top up your dog’s daily water intake, like keeping water bowls in every room, incorporating wet food into their diet, and even trying different types of water bowls to encourage them to drink more. But one of the easiest ways to get your dog drinking more is even simpler – just add flavour!
A favourite among even the fussiest of our four-legged friends, Furr Boost is available in three delicious doggy flavours – beef, broccoli and blueberry; chicken, butternut squash and cranberry; and pork, sweet potato and apple.
Plenty of protein
We all know that healthy protein and fat are essential for any carnivorous species to thrive, but did you know that many standard dog food recipes are high in carbohydrates but low in protein? That means your furry friend can pile on the pounds easily despite long walks!
Protein is essential for supplying amino acids, which help build healthy muscles, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage, so it’s vital that your dog gets enough in their diet. After water, one of the main ingredients in all three flavours of Furr Boost is human-grade, high-quality meat, so you can rest assured that Furr Boost contributes to your pooch’s protein intake too whilst keeping calories low, so you know that they’re taking on plenty of healthy protein to help build strong, sleek muscle mass.
Shiny coat and skin
A shiny coat and hydrated skin not only mean that your Furr Baby looks picture-perfect, but is also important for a variety of health reasons. From keeping viruses and bacteria at bay and protecting dogs’ internal organs, to maintaining a standard body temperature and helping wounds heal quickly – not to mention improving dry and flaky skin – Furr Boost really does it all.
Each flavour of Furr Boost is packed full of added natural oils from ingredients like salmon and coconut, plus flaxseed and dried sea kelp to keep skin hydrated and coats glossy, so they’ll look as healthy as they feel!
Just like us humans, a healthy digestive system is important to our overall wellbeing, so your dog’s diet should include the perfect balance of prebiotics, fibre and vitamins to maintain good gut health. Poor digestive health can lead to all kinds of issues, from arthritis and autoimmune diseases to fatigue, anxiety and allergies.
We use a variety of fruit and vegetables in our range, including blueberry, broccoli, butternut squash, cranberry, apple and sweet potato to provide plenty of fibre to keep digestive systems working well.
Each flavour also contains natural added goodness, including chicory root extract which acts as a prebiotic, yeast beta glucan to support the immune system, vitamin B for a healthy metabolism and immune system, and vitamin C as an antioxidant.
