Chia for dogs on the BARF diet

If you have a very gluttonous dog, don't hesitate. Chia provides a feeling of satiety for dogs with a big appetite. Half a tablespoon for small dogs. One scoop for medium and large dogs. Add it to your CRU menu! You can also mix it with water, natural yogurt or kefir. Mix it a little before serving so that the seeds expand and release their essential oils. *This article has been written based on our knowledge and unconditional love for dogs and cats, but at no time does it replace the advice of a veterinarian. The CRU will be happy to try to resolve any questions you may have, but if your pet suffers from any pathology, we recommend that you consult with a registered veterinarian. Share:
