|Great source of protein...|
Typically nuts and seeds are great source of nutrition for all animals, including the puppy or dog. The Bully Breed , such as the Pit Bull especially benefit from seeds and nuts due to the high proteins, fats, iron and vitamin B's.
Seeds and nuts offer healthy fiber. Yes, even dogs need proper fiber within the daily diet. Also, seeds and nuts prevent sickness and diseases. Furthermore, seeds and nuts offer a healthy fat to maintain strong bones and muscles. The Bully breed typically requires a large amount of healthy fats due to a high metabolism. As long as the puppy or dog is not allergic, nuts and seed is a perfect additional choice to the daily meals.
Just the same as us, dogs are sensitive to food issue, such as Salmonella. We must be aware of recalls, such as the raw pistachio recall from HEB. Even our furry loved ones can become sick and need medical attention when exposed to salmonella.
Channel 10 news reports in December of 2016 , HEB has placed a voluntary recall on the package raw shelled pistachio.
Channel 10 news reports, "The recall involves raw pistachios in prepackaged plastic containers with labels that read either “Shelled Pistachios” or “Central Market Shelled Pistachios” as well as pistachios found in the bulk sections of H-E-B stores with SunRidge Farms labels that read “Women’s Vitality Mix, Pistachio Nuts and Dark Chocolate Pistachios.”

This time of year my Sir. Duke and Bojangles love the variety of nuts and seeds. Especially because of the Pecan tree in our yard is now losing the nuts to the ground. Even the boys know the best part of enjoying the winter festivities and the beginning of spring is with a handful of healthy nuts and seeds. Having nuts and seeds starts the celebration of winter and spring.
Caring is sharing. Please share and follow Bully Love and Devotion to spread animal awareness and education, while helping to find homes for dogs in need.
Leave a comment. Do you give your furry loved ones nuts and seeds? Bojangles favorite seed is the sunflower seed. Sir. Duke love nuts. Especially the pecans that fall from our tree in front of the house. Sir. Duke loves when the squirrel drops a few along the route home.
