Is barley grass good for dogs and cats? Absolutely! 

Barley grass is a natural anti-inflammatory, rich in a wide range of nutrients.  Also a natural source of antioxidants, it's suitable for pets of all ages. The perfect ingredient to add to food providing active enzymes, vitamin C, amino acids, chlorophyll, beta-carotene and minerals.

The benefits of Barley Grass for your pet

No doubt you have seen your dog chew on grass, this is most common when your dog feels unwell. Eating grass helps with easing of stomach pains and settles their gut. Barley grass has the same outcome, but with far more benefits that the average grass patch. 

Packed with all the good stuff such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants makes barley grass a great addition to your pet’s daily diet.  Here’s why;

  • Healthy skin and coat due to the rich nutrients. When pets are unable to absorb the nutrients they need, it becomes evident in their appearance. 
  • Promotes healthy digestion and reduces bad breath.  The chlorophyll (which is also great for cats) plays a large part to help with digestion by supporting the production of hydrochloric acid. In addition the active enzymes and other nutrients in barley grass means your dog's breath will be fresher.
  • Supports the immune system.  The call out here is chlorophyll. It’s not only beneficial for their digestive system. It detoxifies resulting in increased energy and helps boost their immune system.
