Baking a cherry oatmeal muffin is a delicious way to supply your dog with healthy antioxidants.
Do you have a small dog or know of one? If so, you know that size doesn't matter. They may have the same big personality as any dog several times their size.

The cherry provides powerful antioxidants called anthocyanins. These are what give the cherry its deep red color.
They are also responsible for helping reduce inflammation which gives relief to arthritis. It also reduces risk factors for heart disease. Please consult your veterinarian before implementing changes to your dogs health regimen.
