Product Overview – Does Poochie Powder Work?
Snoutly’s Poochie Powder supposedly contains only organic vegetables and blueberries. There are no additives, no preservatives, no gluten, no soy, no grain, and no corn.
The vegetables include green peas, parsley, collard greens, and Brussels sprouts.
- Parsley is rich in vitamin A, C, K, folate, and iron.
- Collard Greens: Kale, cabbage, and broccoli are all examples of collard greens. They are rich in vitamin K, A, C, and manganese.
- Green Peas are rich in B vitamins, phosphorous, and potassium
- Brussels Sprouts: loaded with fiber (important for GI tract health), vitamin K, A, C, and B1.
Blueberries have a high amount of vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants. I often share them with my dog Bozi and he loves them.
The vegetables and blueberries are raw, but they are freeze-dried in order to conserve most nutrients.
The ingredients in most dog foods must go through a series of mixing, cooking, drying, and formatting processes that a lot of nutrients simply will not survive.
However, these processes are needed to kill harmful bacteria and to keep the food last longer. Therefore, I think it is necessary to supplement extra nutrients to keep our dogs healthy in the long run.
Plus, the fiber from these vegetables and blueberries can improve your dog’s digest system. The good bacteria (probiotics) feed on the fiber (prebiotic) and thrive, which will improve your dog’s immune system.
The vitamins and the antioxidants will help to get rid of harmful reactive free radicals that build up in the body, which will also strengthen the immune system, reduce inflammation, and help with aging-related issues.
Vitamins also help cell growth and repair, bone growth, as well as improve skin and hair.
Therefore, I think these ingredients are great for dogs as they provide abundant vitamins, minerals, fibers, and antioxidants.
Eating Organic Is The New Trend
More and more people are switching to an organic diet; the benefits are well-known by now. So why can’t our dogs enjoy organic foods as well?
Organic foods have fewer pesticides (synthetic) and herbicides; pesticides and herbicides are harsh chemicals that the liver must work really hard to detoxify.
Regular vegetables and fruits often have pesticides and herbicides residues on them. When they start to build up and the liver can’t get rid of them fast enough, this can lead to many health issues such as cancer.
There are not many purely organic dog foods on the market today, let alone supplements. Most supplement manufacturers use synthetic ingredients whenever they can because synthetic is much cheaper than the organic ingredient.
I remember when I was working in a nutritional supplement company, the price of organic, non-GMO soybean oil is almost double the price of regular soybean oil. This increase in cost will reflect the price of the product, and a lot of consumers will be driven away because of the price.
As the result, many manufacturers do not make organic supplements because of the low sales and they still use regular ingredients.
By comparison, Snoutly’s Poochie Powder is one of the few products that has only organic ingredients, and Snoutly is one of the few companies that make organic supplements exclusively for dogs. I think this is important as well because foods that are good for us do not mean they are good for dogs.
Let’s look at what other dog parents think about this product.
What Dog Owners Say
Snoutly’s Poochie Powder receives a 4.6 out of 5 stars rating on Amazon.
Most dog parents praise that their dogs love the taste even if the dog is particularly picky.
Moreover, they are more energetic and their digestion improves. The benefits of eating organic foods show up right away.
One review does mention that the dogs ‘gas’ a lot after consuming the powder. If your dog is a bit sensitive, then it is best to start with a lower dose, then gradually increase the dose once your dog can tolerate.
I think gas is normal since this powder has Brussels sprouts. Brussels sprouts have a high amount of isothiocyanate, which is a substance that promotes intestine muscle movement.
Better intestine muscle movement improves digestion and helps to push waste out, but more gas is also produced as digestion takes place.
So I think if your dog experiences flatulence (gas) after consuming the powder, you don’t have to worry too much.
The Good and the Bad
- All the ingredients are organic, plant-based, non-GMO.
- No additives, no preservatives, no gluten, no soy, no grain, and no corn.
- Exclusively made for dogs. It provides extra nutrients: vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants
- The price is pretty competitive – an 8oz bag can serve 96 servings for a medium dog, that is 28 cents per serving.
- The facility is FDA approved. Also, it has an organic certification.
- Good taste
- Small Batch Production – better quality control and assurance
- Feeding is very simple – just sprinkle on top of your dog’s regular food
- Your dogs might experience Flatulence (Gas) – which I think is normal.
I do want to mention that if your dog is allergic to any of these ingredients, do not use this product unless you have consulted with your veterinarian.
Poochie Powder, Essential Nutrition Packed in One Bag
I would highly recommend Snoutly Poochie Powder for all breeds, ages, and size of dogs.
There are not many companies that specifically make quality organic supplements for dogs like Snoutly does. Plus, the price is very reasonable compared to other supplements.
If you worry that your dog is not getting enough nutrients from regular dog foods, why not give Poochie Powder a try?
The essential vitamins and antioxidants will give your dog a beautiful coat and healthy skin. Plus, extra fiber help improves digestion; better digestion, fewer trips to the vet.
