The Benefits of Seaweed for Your Dog
Seaweed is great for humans but also our four legged friends. There are two ways for seaweed to benefit your dog. One is food- the inside. The other- skin, the outside. In or out seaweed is very beneficial for your dog.
Have you thought about adding seaweed to your dog’s diet? Seaweed is a great “green food” for your dog. Green foods are sea vegetables and some grasses. Sea veggies are a great green food for “Fido” because they are so easy to digest. Rich in amino acids and minerals which helps balance energy levels, strengthens the immune system and helps keep skin and coat healthy.
Scientific studies about the benefits of seaweeds are still in the early stages but seaweeds may help reduce cancer and tumors. Their properties help fight heavy metal accumulations and contain high levels of tryptophan which helps battle cancer cells.
There are many ways to get seaweed into your dog’s diet. An easy way is to buy edible seaweed at a health food store. Look for seaweed that is in flakes or powder. It’s not a good idea for your dog to consume large pieces of seaweed.

One of my favorite Maine Seaweed companies- Vitamin Sea makes a great pet antioxidant blend. It’s a careful blend that “mixes the natural nutrient benefits of seaweed with the antioxidant power of Maine blueberries and cranberries. The antioxidants work to neutralize free radicals, which are unstable molecules linked to the development of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and other related conditions. Pets with chronic infections will also benefit from the natural antioxidant power. Seaweed provides many crucial nutrients every animal needs to live a long happy life."
What we put on our outside is as important as what we put on our inside and seaweed can be very beneficial to a dog with hot spots or red itchy patches. Dulse & Rugosa’s Seaweed Shampoo for dogs is great for all dogs but can work wonders for dogs with allergies or sensitive skin.
Our soap starts with a base of Maine seaweed, hand harvested from the cool mineral rich waters near Acadia National Park. We have also incorporated Neem Oil for its amazing insect fighting properties. Neem oil can help fight fleas, ticks, parasites and mites naturally. Our natural yet effective dog shampoo can help you replace harsh chemicals that leave skin itchy and raw. Lightly scented with pet friendly essential oils which will leave your pooch looking and smelling great!
And our bar is plastic free. We know how much you love to walk and run in nature with your dog and using a plastic free shampoo helps make the world a better place for all of Earth's creatures.
Seaweed is good for you and your four legged friends.
