Vendor Highlight: Nugget's Healthy Eats
Dayna Guzik's passion for pet health started with her own pup, Nugget. After her golden retriever/lab mix beat liver cancer at the age of 11, she began adjusting his diet to be kidney friendly, including foods that were high in quality protein, potassium, Omega fatty acids and low in phosphorus and sodium. To further help his aging body and mind, she began making her own bone broth and yogurt snacks for Nugget, rich in antioxidants and nutrients that provided a daily boost to his immune system. Serving them to Nugget frozen released "feel good" endorphins that helped sooth him into his later years.
Dayna and her business partner Kris now carry on Nugget's legacy with Nugget's Healthy Eats, a line of nutritious and delicious frozen yogurt and bone broth snacks.
Made-from-scratch, low fat Smart Snacks Artisan Yogurt made from milk delivered by happy cows who are hormone/antibiotic-free, grass fed, and enjoy free pasture access. Nugget's adds 5 strains of live cultures with billions of probiotics for healthy bellies & immune system support.
Availabe in three flavors: Chillin Cherry, Wild Blueberry, and Butternut Mutt.
- Probiotics provide live cultures for healthy digestion and immune support.
- Tart cherries and wild blueberries are "superfruits" bursting with antioxidants and phytonutrients.
