Three Ingredients That Help Pets’ Tummies

Learn about the powerful digestive benefits of pumpkin, ginger, and wheatgrass. Plus, new Tiki Mixology recipes perfect for sensitive pets! 


Latte-lovers aren’t the only ones who love pumpkin. Cats and dogs can enjoy it too, as a delicious and effective solution for sensitive stomachs. Our Tummy Toppers™ combine silky smooth pumpkin purée with either ginger (for dogs) or wheatgrass (for cats). Let’s take a closer look at these awesome ingredients.

Pumpkin

This amazing gourd is a flavorful and versatile ingredient in both people and pet food, and it’s chocked full of fiber and important vitamins and minerals, like immunity-boosting vitamins A and C, potassium and iron. Both cats and dogs can benefit from pumpkin, particularly their digestive systems. As an excellent source of fiber, pumpkin gently eases intestinal distress to help relieve both constipation and diarrhea. It also allows pets to feel full for longer, which can help them maintain a healthy weight.

Ginger

Featured in our Tiki Dog™ Tummy Topper™, ginger has a long history of use as a spice and medicine. As a natural anti-inflammatory and digestive aid, it’s been used for thousands of years to relieve human ailments like nausea, constipation, and arthritis. It’s been shown that ginger can provide many of the same benefits for dogs suffering from upset stomachs and achy joints.

Wheatgrass

Have you ever seen people drink wheatgrass shots or smoothies? This antioxidant-packed grass is actually a superfood supplement for cats too, and it’s featured in Tiki Cat® Tummy Topper™. It helps cats naturally flush out toxins and stimulate movement in the digestive system. And, if you’ve ever tried wheatgrass, don’t worry – cats typically like the flavor much more than people!

These three ingredients have been shown to help support a healthy digestive system in pets. However, if your pet experiences severe intestinal upset along with lethargy or appetite loss, it’s best to contact your veterinarian.
