Supplement your dog or cat's diet

Ingredientes Complementos

When and how to supplement your dog or cat's diet?

The CRU natural diet is complete and does not require supplementation in healthy dogs. That said, we can enhance its benefits thanks to other superfoods that are very beneficial for furry dogs and are 100% natural.


Depending on the reasons why you want to complement your furry friend's diet, you should do it for a specific period of time or daily . For example, if you want to treat or prevent joint discomfort, you should supplement your diet daily with activated turmeric and/or add chondroprotective foods such as New Zealand green-lipped mussels to your diet. However, if what happens to your furry friend is that he has digestive problems due to stress due to a change in habits, you can add Psyllium to his diet temporarily until the stress has passed.


At CRU we recommend that supplementation always be with natural products and real foods . Furthermore, although feed-based diets can also be complemented, we believe that the first step for your furry friend to have iron health is that their base diet is natural, balanced and adapted to their species . You can always add new proteins (meat, fish, organ meats) to any BARF diet. Variety in your diet is always a good thing, since each type of protein can provide different benefits. But you must keep in mind not to unbalance the proportions of their diet too much and that products that are given raw must have been frozen for about 48 hours before offering them to your furry friend. Another way to add protein to the diet is eggs, although not all dogs like their texture. You have more information about them in this article . One way to add fish to your furry friend's diet is canned fish. These should be natural, without oil, salts or preservatives so that you can enjoy them without problems. They are also an ideal option for a day out, a picnic or to accompany you with the weekend vermouth. We leave you our selection of preserves made specifically for furry dogs here . If your furry friend has specific needs , his diet can be complemented with superfoods that provide him with what he needs to be a completely happy furry friend.

COCONUT + spirulina

REGULAR SUPPLEMENTATION IN THE DIET. COLD, ALLERGY, ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION AND MEDICATION TREATMENTS In the cold, your furry friend's skin and hair can suffer more than in temperate times and it is their first barrier of protection against external agents, viruses, bacteria and parasites, so it is important to keep it healthy. For this, it is essential to maintain a correct diet, but extra omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids will help you at those times of the year. You will see that your furry friend's skin looks healthier, dandruff disappears, and his hair regains its shine. If your furry friend has recently undergone medication treatment, spirulina will help cleanse his or her body. For environmental allergies and furry urbanites exposed to pollution, this supplement is our daily ally. It also contains natural antioxidants and accelerates healing and calms itchy wounds.


DEWORMING AND REINFORCEMENT OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM With changes in temperature, lowered defenses are more common. This is when parasites, fungi or opportunistic bacteria can appear that take advantage of the opportunity to infect your furry friend. but with a strong immune system, this will not be a problem. You already know that the best way to achieve this is with adequate nutrition, but there are ingredients that are not on our menus that are very beneficial for your furry friend. One of them is garlic, often forgotten, a very powerful superfood for your health and that of the furry person who lives with you. It is antibacterial, antifungal and effective against both internal and external parasites. It also helps strengthen the immune system in general and you can use it as a natural dewormer all year round. To make it taste good and add properties, we mix it with organic cold-pressed coconut oil.

TURMERIC + ginger

PREVENTION AND TREATMENT OF JOINT PROBLEMS A MUST if your furry friend is OLD. Maybe you've noticed that on colder, wetter days it's harder for him to get up, climb, or jump onto the couch next to you. And your joints suffer a little more than usual with the changes of season. The best way to take care of their joints is to do it before the problems start. If your dog is of a breed that is prone to joint problems, a CRU diet that has a high content of natural collagen could help reduce these ailments in the future. Likewise, if your furry friend is starting to get a little older, taking care of his diet and therefore his joints is always a good idea. Prevention is better than cure. Whether your furry friend already suffers from these pains or to prevent them, our golden paste of TURMERIC + ginger will be your ally. Activated turmeric prevents inflammation of the joints and reduces the aches and pains derived from said inflammation. You will be able to notice how your furry friend is improving day by day.


DIGESTIVE SYSTEM + ANAL GLANDS IF your furry friend has any problems with diarrhea, constipation or complications with emptying the anal glands, our Psyllium Flax supplement will help. It is a source of soluble and insoluble fiber that improves the consistency of feces to facilitate its expulsion and allow the natural emptying of the anal glands. Additionally, it helps regulate cholesterol and blood glucose levels. Any change in diet should be made gradually and one at a time. If you want to add new proteins you must do it one by one. And if you add any superfoods, do so starting with a very small dose.
