Wolfworthy is known for it's high meat content, freshly prepared ingredients, and being made without artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. But that's not the whole story. Dogs and wolves evolved to eat a varied diet including some fruit and vegetables foraged in the forest or from prey stomach contents. So we have included a range of highly nutritious fruits, vegetables and herbs; designed to give your dog some amazing health benefits. Here is a list of some the fruit and vegetable superfoods in Wolfworthy and why we include them:
Sweet potato is an easily digestible, slow energy release carbohydrate, that will keep blood sugar levels steady and therefore satisfies your dog's hunger over a longer period. They are packed full of antioxidants which help to clear free-radicals in your dog's body. Not only is sweet potato biologically different from white potatoes they contain significantly more nutrients. Unfortunately, they're much more expensive than white potato to include, but we think your dog's health is worth it.
Broccoli is high in vitamin C, beta carotene, folic acid, calcium, chromium and fibre and low in fat. Broccoli has been reported to have significant cancer fighting properties.
Spinach has double the amount of iron compared to most other green vegetables. It is also a great source of antioxidants and beta-carotene. Spinach also contains fibre, calcium, potassium and vitamins A, B6 and K.
Carrots really are good for eyesight, they contain beta-carotene, a substance that converts to vitamin A, an important nutrient for your dog's eye health. They are also an excellent source of antioxidants, and contain Vitamin A, C, K & B8, pantothenic acid, folate, potassium, iron, copper and manganese.
Peas are a fantastic source of health-promoting antioxidants and provide your dog with a wide range of healthy nutrients including fibre, vitamins C, K, and B1, manganese and folate.
Bilberries contain the powerful antioxidants anthocyanosides. These amazing nutrients can bolster blood vessels and capillary walls, boost red blood cells, support collagen tissues like tendons, cartilage and ligaments. They can also help with retinal pigments that enable the eye to tolerate bright light.
Cranberries are of course high in Vitamin C, but they may have special properties that help prevent and fight urinary tract infections. They contain proanthocyandin which can help to prevent bacteria from sticking to the bladder wall. If the bacteria can't stick, then it is much easier for your dogs to pass them out during urination.
Can an apple a day keep the vet away? Well, apples contain abundant amounts of beta-carotene, vitamin C as well several B complex vitamins such as B6, folic acid and lots of potassium. So the answer could well be yes.

Sometimes called "nature's antibiotic" and "nature's wonder drug", garlic can give your dog some significant health benefits. Garlic can help maintain healthy blood pressure and boost the immune system. It is also a great source of potassium, Vitamin C, Vitamin A and zinc.
Brewer's yeast is a great source of minerals -- especially selenium; B-complex vitamins and chromium. It can help to protect against heart disease and stabilise blood glucose levels.
