About Olive Oil:
The liquid obtained by pressing whole olives, olive oil production is known to have taken place in the Mediterranean region for many thousands of years. Native to Asia Minor in modern-day Turkey, the olive tree is one of the world’s oldest known cultivated trees.
Legend has it that Athens was named after the Goddess Athena because she planted the original olive tree which produced the olives so essential to the ancient Greeks who used it for everything from food and medicine to lighting, heating and even purfume.
Benefits of Olive Oil:
Rich in vitamins E and K, olive oil helps promote optimum health in both humans and dogs. It is rich in monounsaturated fats which lessen the effects of cardiovascular disease and diabetes. It also protects the immune system, helps prevent cancer, and helps keep your dog in tip top condition inside and out.
Olive oil’s ability to promote cognitive health and to protect joints is considered particularly beneficial to senior dogs in order to protect them from age-related illnesses such as dementia and arthritis.
Many vets, holistic vets in particular, recommend olive oil as a regular supplement for dogs. Extra virgin olive oil is best, but even if you can only give your dog plain old vin ordinaire olive oil, it’s still better than nothing.
Preparing & Cooking:
No need to prepare, no need to cook, simply open the bottle and pour.
If you feed your dog commercial dry food, simply drizzle a little over each meal for added goodness – but be mindful of that potential weight gain. (Please see below).
See recipe suggestion below or visit recipes for further suggestions.
Too much olive oil can cause a dog to gain unnecessary weight. We recommend no more than one teaspoon of olive oil per 10 kilos of bodyweight per meal, mixed in with your dog’s regular food. That having been said, if you home cook for your dog and use our recommended recipes, you will find that we regularly add olive oil to some of our recipes, along with the likes of safflower oil and salmon oil for maximum nutritional variety, so no extra supplementation is necessary or advisable.
Follow recipe guidelines to ensure moderation and to avoid digestive issues.
