My farmer’s market had a great deal on organic mint, so I spent the day trimming, washing, chopping, and storing this flavorful herb.

Did you know mint does more than just freshen breath?

Humans and dogs agree that mint helps tame powerful odors, but this herb is also used for many digestive benefits. Just like you warm up a cup of peppermint tea to soothe a stomachache, mint can also benefit your dog’s digestive track. The aromatic peppermint leaf reduces gas, nausea and upset stomach.

We feature mint in a few of our dog treat recipes, including our Mint + Parsley Dog Treats and Apple + Pumpkin Dog Treats.
