Healthy and delicious
CAROB is often used as a substitute for chocolate but unlike chocolate, it is safe for dogs to eat. in fact, it is a good source of riboflavin, calcium, potassium, copper,
manganese, and fibre.
GOAT MILK YOGURT does not have the protein b-lactoglobulin that is responsible for many dairy allergies. it‘s also higher in vitamin a, calcium, potassium and copper than cow milk yogurt.
