Do Dogs Need Fruits and Vegetables?

Do Dogs Need Fruits and Vegetables?

When you look at your pup, you may see an adorable little meat-lovin' carnivore. But they actually need fresh fruits and veggies, too! Why? Let's dig in!


Providing Much-Needed Fiber

Raw meat is an excellent source of protein for dogs, but it doesn’t help in the fiber department. Fiber plays a crucial role in a healthy gut microbiome and regulating bowel movements. Enter fruits and veggies!

Fiber comes from things like carrots, kale, and even blueberries, all of which are in our drool-worthy recipes. The more natural and unprocessed the source, the higher the fiber content. Here at Little Hunter, we only use raw, organic, fresh fruits and vegetables.

However, too much plant fiber can actually be a bad thing and could lead to pancreatitis. That's why feeding a balanced diet, like Little Hunter, is so important. Our recipes are formulated by a holistic veterinarian and contain the optimal amount of nutritious fiber.


Keepin’ Those Chompers Healthy

Fruits and veggies are Mother Nature’s toothbrush, as they help scrape away plaque and tartar buildup as your pup enjoys. Having fruits and vegetables in a dog's diet is a must!


Boosting Immune Systems

We all want more time to make memories with our best friends. Fruits and veggies can help you do just that because they’re packed with powerful antioxidants, which help boost your pup’s immune system. 

That boost assists in warding off diseases and fighting free radicals. Plus, it can help reduce inflammation so you and your pup can get back to adventuring.


Promoting a Healthy Weight

Pup getting a little chonky? Fruits and veggies promote a healthy weight. Low in calories, they provide the nutrient-rich fuel dogs need. By choosing a recipe with fresh fruits and veggies in their diet, you're helping your dog indulge in a tasty meal that doesn't pack on the pounds.


Because Variety Is the Spice of Life

We all love a good meal loaded with delicious and even unexpected flavors and textures, dogs included! By feeding them a diet that includes organic fruits and veggies, you're helping them enjoy the best meals of their lives.

And at the end of the day, isn’t that all we really want for our pups, to live the very best life possible?

One of the best decisions we've made for our dog
Since we switched Chief to a fully raw diet 6 months ago we’ve seen amazing changes in him! He’s less bloated and is very lean now!( more defined muscles ) His teeth are way more clean on raw. He doesn’t suffer from itchy skin anymore, his coat is naturally shiny now!
My pet hates EVERYTHING! Little Hunter was a hit though. I couldn't believe how she enjoyed the beef, fruits and vegetables recipe.
