Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Green tea.   Tue May 24, 2011 11:06 pm

Hoping someone has some insight on dogs and green tea.. I know it has it's benefits, but I've also read that "too much" of it can cause digestion issues and other things of the sort. Nature's Variety's new LID formulas have freeze dried green tea coating.. I wanted to try it out but I don't know much on it being in dog food.

You're right Heather, green tea does have it's benefits and too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. I would think that Nature's Variety would have the sense not to put a controversial amount in their new LID formulas and a quick look at the ingredients shows that the green tea is actually almost the last (3rd from the last) ingredient listed on the bag so the amount of green tea in the new food is so small it should not produce negative digestive effects. By that same token though, because of how little green tea the NV LID formulas contain I honestly wouldn't expect dogs to get hardly any benefit from it either.

I wouldn't ever supplement dogs with green tea for antioxidants (there are other safer ingredients that I would use instead such as blueberries for example), however I would not be turned away from NV's LID formulas over the tiny bit of included green tea. That's just my take on it.

Yes, I would feel comfortable feeding their LID formulas to my dogs.
