Rose hips are packed full of nutrients and they not only have huge potential for our own health but are also beneficial to our dog’s health. They can be very effective at easing a wide range of health conditions.
High in vitamin C
Rose hips are packed full of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is particularly good for bone health as it aids in producing collagen. Collagen helps to keep bones strong which helps them to absorb impact during movement. This is particularly important for dogs that are active or compete in sports.
Vitamin C is also important for maintaining a healthy immune system.
Specifically cultivated rose hips have excellent anti-inflammatory properties and can help to protect cartilage and ease joint pain even at low concentrations.
Rose hips are rich in antioxidants. These antioxidants help to fight free radicals. Free radicals naturally occur as a by-product of metabolism and have a negative effect on the body. We see a higher level of free radicals when our pets are sick, elderly or exposed to toxins.
By feeding foods high in antioxidants, we can see a greater benefit for the immune system and even healthier skin and coat.
