Meet Our Verm-X Ambassadors Ru & Flo

Meet Our Verm-X Ambassadors Ru & Flo

Ru and Flo are family pets and working organic farm dogs who live in the English countryside. They both love the outdoors, whether it’s playing in the bracken, swimming in local rivers, or frolicking in bluebell woods.

Natural prevention is hugely important to them in regards to respect for the environment and we've been honoured to have them as part of the Verm-X family for over a year now.

Recipe: Mint & Strawberry Dog Treats

A perfect way to cool your dog off, these frozen dog treats are both delicious and refreshing on a hot summer's day. They'll also leave your pet with minty fresh breath and a shiny coat.

The addition of our Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, which is said to aid digestion and improve the absorption of nutrients and is used by many to aid in joint support and mobility in dogs, means even more health benefits.
