How Do I give Spirulina To My Dog?
Try adding a spoonful on a dish next to a clean bowl of water & letting the pet choose to take what is needed. We do this in the garden to avoid green floors!
Stir in natural goat or sheep yogurt. These can be partially frozen in hot weather.
Add Spirulina to a mashed banana, some crushed sunflower and pumpkin seeds, roll into balls and give neat or dehydrate for treats.
Add to the last few minutes of a Bone Broth for Dogs.
All in all we think you will agree, Spirulina packs quite a punch and we think it deserves it's Superfood title.
