Read what Paul Jacobson a Pet Food Nutritionist, qualified chef and owner of Vondis Holistic Pet Nutrition recommends:
There are so many legendary health properties to Rooibos Tea that it has taken the world by storm. Rooibos is proudly South African and right on our doorstep and because it's packed with many antioxidants and minerals, Rooibos ("red bush") tea is extremely healthy.
It promotes healthier skin, mainly because of its high concentration of Zinc and Vitamin D. Thus, when we treat our companion's skin and allergy problems, Rooibos is one of my preferred remedies. Used internally or externally, you are sure to see an improvement with your pet's skin and coat.
Rooibos tea as it relates to healthy skin is hypoallergenic and antibacterial and it can treat and alleviate bacterial infections on the skin. Rooibos Tea is also known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Read more...
Another one of Rooibos Tea's benefits is that it includes powerful antioxidants. This boosts the immune system and fights free radicals. Immunity is everything and healthy pets are less likely to be affected by virus, bacteria, parasites and allergens.
Most of our companion animals struggle with skin disorders because their immunity is low and they are very vulnerable to allergens, be it flea bites, long grass or dust mites.
Since I have been writing for Furkidz, I have been promoting diets that are wholesome and enriched with vegetables, together with natural supplements and herbs. Our focus is to boost immunity.
We have discussed the important contribution of vegetables, garlic, fish oil, apple cider vinegar, rosehip & devils claw, spirulina and now rooibos. All these contribute positively in treating and eradicating skin ailments and allergies.
Whether you include Rooibos Tea in your pet's water and food or soak them in a Rooibos bath, South Africa's own wonder bush is there to serve you and your pet.
