Keeping Your Pet's Eyes Healthy With Superfoods

We want to keep our pets happy and healthy for as long as possible. So when it comes to their eyes, how to we promote healthy eyes and eyesight? Here are a few foods and ingredients that can help:

Taurine - Taurine, an amino acid found in protein, is essential for dog and cat eye health. Without enough taurine, the photosensitive parts of a cat's or dog's eyes start to deteriorate. A high-quality protein has a proper balance of amino acids and is digestible, that is the body can absorb the nutrients from the food. Taurine is added to all of Nature's Select's dog and cat food recipes.

Blueberries - Blueberries contain anthocyanins, eye-nourishing phytonutrients that are shown to support night vision. Flavonoids, like rutin, resveratrol and quercetin, are also found in blueberries, and may help prevent macular degeneration. Blueberries also contain selenium and zinc, which further support vision. Blueberry powder can be found in every Nature's Select food recipe.

Carrots - Carrots are extremely rich in vitamin A, which can improve your pet's vision and overall eye health. In fact, not getting enough vitamin A can lead to eye infections and even vision loss. Vitamin A can also help boost your pet's immune system and keep their skin healthy. Carrot powder is included in all Nature's Select dog food recipes.

TomatoesTomatoes are rich in vitamin A and beta-carotene, which help decrease eye-related issues and delay macular degeneration. Beta-carotene is also a powerful antioxidant that prevents oxidative damage and upkeeps a healthy coat and skin. Tomato pomace can be found in every Nature's Select dog food recipe.

Eggs - Egg yolk contains lutein and zeaxanthin that lower the risk of cataracts in dogs and help to prevent macular disease.
