Red Tea for your dog

Red tea is also known by a few other names such as Red Bush Tea or Rooibos Tea (pronounced roy boss). It is a shrub that produces yellow flowers and is grown in South Africa near Cape Town.

You let your dog have Red Tea?

Yes, I do! Red tea is naturally caffeine free and has many health benefits.

This is one of the few teas I let him drink and he picks it out himself! I believe he knows what he needs so I hold the tea boxes in front of him and he will lick or bite the one he wants. Sure enough, after it has brewed and cooled, he “drinks” it.

Red Tea concerns or side effects

No flavored tea: Plain Red tea will be best for your dog. Please check the labels as it can come in a version with vanilla, caramel or chai.

Oxalate acid sensitivity: If you or your dog suffer from oxalic acid sensitivity, which can bring on conditions such as kidney stones, the good news is it has little to no oxalate acid.
