3. Cinnamon


While there is some controversy regarding the safety of cinnamon for dogs, the ASPCA has ruled it non-toxic. This spice not only smells heavenly, but it provides a number of health benefits as well. Cinnamon has been shown to boost energy and vitality while also improving brain function. Additionally, cinnamon has natural antifungal properties which help to protect against the type of fungus which causes yeast infections (these are particularly common in dogs with allergies). When adding cinnamon to your dog’s diet, experts recommend sticking with Ceylon cinnamon, rather than using the Cassia variety that is more common. That’s because Ceylon cinnamon contains much less coumarin, which is a compound that is associated with blood thinning. So be very careful about which type of cinnamon that you feed your pup. They may look similar going in, but these two types of cinnamon will have a very different effect on your on what happens within your dog’s body.  (Photo credit: Yastremska/Bigstock)
