Your dog can survive on balanced food. It is true. But are they healthy? Have they got the access to a range of fresh nutrients so they can live a long and happy life?
The nutrients that your dog gets each day will impact their short and long term physical health, gut health, cellular health and mental health. It is important to give your dog healthy, natural foods so they live a long and happy life.
This is where we can help with our blended Umameo protein powder mix which you can supplement as a treat, paste or simply add it to their food as a topper!
We only use organic ingredients in our products so you can feel safe that your dog is getting the highest quality ingredients. Each ingredient is chosen and measured out for its nutritional benefit to dogs by our amazing vegan vet nutritionist Dr Arielle. Let’s dig a bit deeper into the ingredients
Why is Oatbran good for dogs?
Oatbran is good for dogs because it is packed full of natural fibre, which will help your dog with digestive irregularity, diarrhoea or constipation. If your dog suffers from impacted anal glands, oat bran is great! It ensures stool formulation and regularity—which helps anal glands empty naturally.
Oatbran also contains manganese, selenium, vitamin B1, magnesium and phosphorus which is known to help with bone formation, nervous system function, and muscle function.
Why is Hemp powder good for dogs?
A Fleetful favourite, we love this incredible protein source. Hemp powder is a great source of essential fatty acids Omega 6 and Omega 3 and one of the main reasons hemp is so good for dogs. Hemp powder is good for dogs as it is known to naturally reduce inflammation, reduce seizures, improve the appearance of skin and coat, support flexibility and regulate the digestive process. It also helps to remove toxins from the gastrointestinal system. We think hemp should be used more in canine food products. It is expensive though, which is why some companies choose not to use it.
Why are Ground Almonds so Good For Dogs?
Ground almonds are packed full of protein and vitamins and in the right quantities are an excellent source of nutrition for your dog. Ground almonds are good for dogs because they contain manganese, vitamin E, magnesium, vitamin B2 and phosphorous - all great for all-round health. They also contain monounsaturated fats which are one of the healthiest sources of fat.
Please note it is not recommended to feed your dog whole almonds as they are indigestible for dogs in that form
Why is Chickpea Flour so Good for your Dog?
Chickpea flour is an excellent source of protein which is not animal-derived.
Chickpeas contain insoluble fibre which helps line the wall of the intestine and keep your dog’s gut in good health. The result of a healthy colon can reduce the risk of colon related problems, including cancer.
Potassium is another key nutrient in chickpea flour which is known to maintain and improve heart, muscle nerve, and kidney function as well as maintain healthy blood pressure.
Why are pre and probiotics so good for your dog?
Gut health is hugely important in dogs and a reason why probiotics and prebiotics are so good for your dog. A healthy gut will ensure they are properly absorbing nutrients from food. We support gut health by adding pre and pro biotics to our Umameo Powders.
Probiotics help your dog digest food, make and absorb vitamins and minerals, and keep a strong immune system
Prebiotics boost good bacteria in your dog's gut.
What else is in our Umameo Powders?
This flavour contains expertly formulated ingredients to promote a healthy gut and digestive system. It contains psyllium husks, inulin and ginger which will help the digestive process.
Ginger is also an excellent anti-inflammatory and great for dogs with joint and bone problems.
We have added nutritional yeast to our Umameo Original recipe. Nutritional yeast is full of B vitamins to support metabolism, mental agility and immunity.
How to use Umameo Protein Powder for Dogs
Well that is where YOU and your dog can choose! The powders are so versatile you can make them into treats, into pastes for toys or even simply sprinkle the powder on top of your dog’s normal meals. You will be given a recommended treat recipe with your Umameo pack, but you don’t even have to follow this, you could simply make your own recipe using ingredients in your kitchen.
Why do owners buy Umameo Protein Powders for Dogs?
We have owners who swear by the wonderful organic blended protein powder and subscribe regularly to ensure their dog stays as healthy as possible. Some owners have fed back that the powders have helped with specific health benefits.
Stop dogs eating Grass! - offering your dog some paste or a treat in between meals may help your dog stop eating grass. We are not sure why this is the case but as the powders are so good for digestion, we think that a dog's tummy is settled and does not feel the need to eat grass.
Preventing Impacted Anal Glands - our Umameo Ginger recipe is particularly good for supporting anal gland issues as it has numerous natural fibre sources - try the butternut recipe card that we send to you and make a large batch, a few treats a day should ease digestion :)
