The peel of lemon an orange has powerful antioxidant properties due to its high content of polyphenols and vitamin C (orange also has a high vitamin A content).

These compounds give the peel of these citrus fruits a strong antimicrobial power that effectively fights infections and boosts the immune system, contributing effectively to increasing the natural defences in our pets, preventing infections and respiratory problems.

In addition, they contain hesperidin, which is a very effective flavonoid which fights the accumulation of fat in the arteries and facilitates its elimination.
