Anti Inflammatory Diets for Dogs

If your dog is suffering from gut inflammation, NatrixOne is a helpful natural remedy. Camelina oil is high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are known for their anti-inflammatory properties. In a study of dogs with inflammatory bowel disease, those who were given camelina oil showed significant improvements in their symptoms. NatrixOne helped to reduce inflammation in the gut and improve the overall health of the dogs’ digestive systems. In addition to camelina oil, a plant-based diet can also be helpful in preventing gut inflammation. Foods that are rich in antioxidants and fiber are especially beneficial, as they help to reduce oxidative stress and promote a healthy gut microbiome. By incorporating camelina oil and a plant-based diet into your dog’s routine, you can help to reduce gut inflammation and improve your dog’s overall health.

What is Canine Inflammatory Bowel Disease?

Canine Inflammatory Bowel disease is a condition caused by ongoing inflammation in your dog’s intestine. The inflammation is an immune system response that can become painful when left untreated. Symptoms can include: 

  • nausea & vomiting
  • diarrhea, loose stools
  • more frequent defecation
  • smaller stools despite frequent defecation
  • blood or mucous in stool
  • lack of appetite
  • weight loss
  • fever
  • listlessness and depression
  • anxiety

What Causes Gut Inflammation in Dogs?

The two biggest factors behind gut inflammation involve diet and stress levels of the dog. Occasionally genetics and/or exposure to a parasite can trigger an IBD response. While there is no cure for IBD in dogs or humans, the symptoms are treatable by a handful of medications as well as a recommended change in diet. The great news is removing environmental stress and selecting a diet that is high in anti-inflammatory properties can greatly reduce IBD symptoms without resorting to long-term pharmacuticals. 

Anti Inflammatory Foods List for Dogs

The majority of foods low in inflammation include fatty fish, berries, plant-based protein, pumpkin, apple, legumes, soy, rice, avocado, green tea, olive oil, and tomatoes. Many of these ingredients can be found in our NatrixOne Recipes and our flagship Camelina plant-based supplement.

Where to Buy Anti-Inflammatory Dog Food

The average length of time between manufacturing and retail sales of mass-produced dog food creates a long shelf life that depletes the food of its nutritional value? Thankfully a handful of retailers in addition to NatrixOne are on a mission to create dog (& cat) food that is fresh and high-quality like human food. Michele Hobbs of Pet Wants in Cincinnati set out to create Fresh, nutritional pet food from the highest quality ingredients, slow-cooked in small batches, and delivered right to your door. They also offer a free nutritional analysis for your four-legged friend to help determine which food is best suited for your breed.
