Are you looking for a dog treat that’s healthy, low fat, delicious, 100% natural? Then you’ve come to the right place. Award winning Soopa chews were created out of a passion to make healthy and nutritious treats fun and innovative for your dog.
Coconut meat contains medium chained triglycerides, metabolised in a different manner to other triglycerides. This fat is used as a source of energy transported directly to the liver rather than being stored as fat. 50% of the special saturated fat in coconut is Laurin. Research shows that Laurin can be converted in the body to Monolaurin, holding great antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. MCTs in coconut can actually help stimulate your pet’s metabolism aiding management of weight as opposed to the myth that the saturated fats in coconut will be fattening and unhealthful. Coconut is also relatively low in protein and ideal for those on restricted protein diets. If your pet has allergies, scurfy skin or a rash then it’s a fabulous hypoallergenic treat to feed your pet. This miraculous food can be used successfully in several problem pets and is a benefit to all…even if you fancy a little nibble yourself!
Caution: With coconut it can cause detoxification symptoms initially so we advise to introduce coconut gradually to the diet. Signs of detoxing too rapidly may include lethargy, vomiting, fatigue, and diarrhea.
Sweet potato chews are a delicious healthy chew treat for your dog. Naturally rich in vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants with their rich orange colour indicating that they are high in carotenoids such as beta carotene and other carotenoids. Research shows carotenoids help strengthen eyesight and aid immunity to disease. One of nature’s superfoods, sweet potato contains good bacterium that helps to regulate the digestive tract and help animals with sensitive stomachs. Sweet potatoes are naturally sweet-tasting but their natural sugars are slowly released into the bloodstream, helping to ensure a balanced and regular source of energy. A natural baked flavour dogs just can’t resist…..can you?
A juicy and delicious dog treat packed with disease busting vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants too. Papaya contains ‘papain’ a digestive enzyme known for aiding digestion of proteins and also helps to soothe the stomach if upset. Papaya also contains anti-parasite properties that may benefit dogs against parasites. If your dog has bad breath that isn’t attributed to poor oral health the smell can often emanate from the stomach. It’s worth looking at the food you are feeding but papaya definitely helps break down obnoxious gases and funny smells. A small papaya contains about 300% of the recommended daily amount of Vitamin C that is believed to support the immune system. Chewy, juicy and nutritious with a tropical taste dog’s love.
THE SOOPA STORY
It was during my time working in my previous dog grooming business I was shocked to see so many dogs suffering from commercial pet food related illness such as; obesity, diabetes, chronic itching and skin allergies. I wanted to offer dog owners a super healthy treat they could give to their dog guilt free that was low calorie, nutritious and also delicious.
