Health Benefits of Rosemary

Rosemary is an extremely useful herb and has a lot of health enhancing properties.

First of all, rosemary is an important antioxidant. It also has antimicrobial properties and can ward off harmful bacteria and fungi from the body.

In addition, rosemary has calming and antidepressant effects, and is good for dogs with upset tummies caused by nervousness or excitability.

Moreover, rosemary has been found to be good for the heart - It helps strengthen heart function and helps moderate irregular heartbeat.

Rosemary is also hailed as a "longevity herb" because it contains substances that help prevent or delay the onset of Alzheimer's disease.

As you can see, this is a very good herb for dogs with different health issues, from digestive problems, heart problems to those fighting infections caused by bacteria and/or fungi. It can also support older dogs by enhancing their immune systems.

Best of all (and that's what counts for dogs), rosemary, especially when combined with cheese, really smells and tastes good!

Fido's Tips

  • If you have a dog who is always nervous, stressed out, or overly excited, this biscuit may help. In addition to rosemary, try adding 1-2 teaspoons of chamomile (if you have chamomile tea, open a teabag and use the leaves) to the recipe. The oats in the recipe also help calm the dog.
  • If your dog has tummy problems (e.g. gas, vomiting, colic) caused by nervousness or stress, try adding ground flaxseed, parsley, dill, or fennel to this cheddar dog biscuit recipe.
  • Since too much salt is not good for us, low-salt cheddar cheese is recommended.
