Green Tea (Decaffeinated) - Camellia Sinensis

The "main selling point" for including or feeding green tea to pets is its potent antioxidant properties, particularly catechins, which can combat oxidative stress and neutralise free radicals in the body. The harmful effects of free radicals encompass a wide range of health issues, from cellular damage and inflammation to the development of chronic diseases including cancer. There have been no clinical trials of green tea to treat cancer in pets, however in humans, regular consumption seems to reduce the incidence of stomach, colon & pancreatic cancer.

The other touted benefits of green tea for pets is its antibacterial properties which could aid in promoting oral health in pets. Research shows green tea is beneficial for periodontal disease in dogs. Green tea infusion can also be used as cleaning agents for dirty pet ears and to soothe hot spots and mouth sores. Studies also suggest that green tea improves insulin sensitivity in obese dogs and can be beneficial for dogs with moderate inflammation. 

Decaffeinated green tea is generally safe, however, concentrated extracts may not be safe in ultra-high doses, so use common sense with dosing and don't offer excessive amounts of green tea (or extract) to any pet who isn't eating well. 

Add 1/2 - 1 teaspoon of leaves to a cup of hot water and allow to infuse for 2-3 minutes before straining and serving. Ensure the tea has cooled adequately before presenting it to your dog.
