Let's go through some of the herbs that are great for our four-legged friends.

Can dogs eat Mint?

Yep! Dried mint has been known to soothe dogs' nausea and upset stomachs, it can also help with bad breath. Like most things in life, however, mint should be given to dogs sparingly, our treats are very safe but giving your dog a polo or peppermint is not recommended. The high amount of sugar isn’t good for them, and the mint oils used to flavour the sweet could make your pup unwell. Rest assured, our lamb with mint treats are very safe and will not harm your dog and can, in some instances, provide alternative health benefits for your dog as well.

Please do your research or speak to your vet to establish whether these herbs are safe for your particular dog and what dosage might be advisable, all dogs are different.
