    I have chia seeds sprinkled on my cereal for breakfast every morning. Looks like they are a superfood for dogs, too.

    Do any of you guys sprinkle Chia seeds on your dogs raw food? Soaked preferably so they plump. It’s crazy that this teeny seed packs so much punch. High in Omega 3 and fibre.

    What about sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds? Do any of you add those?

    Chia seeds...

    • Omega 3 Fatty Acids – 3x the amount we find in salmon
    • Manganese – 2.72 mg per 100 grams of chia seeds
    • Calcium – 631 grams per 100 grams of chia seeds
    • Antioxidants
    • Fiber – 34 grams per 100 grams of chia seeds
    • Protein – 16.5 grams per 100 grams of chia seeds
    • Iron – 7.7 mg per 100 grams of chia seeds
    • Magnesium – 335 mg per 100 grams of chia seeds
    • Phosphorus – 860 mg per 100 grams of chia seeds
    • Potassium – 407 mg per 100 grams of chia seeds
    • Copper – 0.9 mg per 100 grams of chia seeds
    • Zinc – 4.6 mg per 100 grams of chia seeds
    And, along with the above nutrients, chia seeds offer vitamins A, B, E, and D, as well as niacin, iodine and thiamine.

    We use chia seeds in our smoothies and in our salads. I used to use chia seeds in his peanut butter and banana kongs to help reduce the amount of banana sugar going into one serving but now he gets ground meat kongs as I’ve really reduced the sweet fruits from his diet.

    Check out hemp seeds too! They go off faster than we can finish our Costco bag of them so Kaiser got some of those too until we finished them and now I don’t buy anymore.

    I use ground pumpkin seeds as his dewormer. We toast them whole for adding to our salads.

    Love sunflower seeds too but have not fed those to Kaiser.

    I'm afraid to feed them because this might happen! :rofl::rofl:

    Looks like lots of great stuff in them. I probably would look for Organic sprouted seeds.
