Q: Can’t I just give my dog normal tea or regular herbal teas?
A: What you choose to give your dog is ultimately up to you. Lots of people do give their dogs tea, even with milk and sugar but this isn’t something we would recommend. Caffeine is not good for dogs and milk is very hard on their digestive system. As for sugar…. words fail us on that one we’re afraid, other than please don’t give your dog sugar! BOW-WOW blends have been specially designed for a dog’s general well being, with each herb added having a specific purpose.

If you choose to serve it this way, please ensure you DO NOT SERVE HOT. Wait until the infusion has fully cooled before giving to your dog.
Q: My dog is on medication, can they still have BOW-WOW Tea?
A: Whilst our blends are veterinary approved as safe, we would always recommend discussing this with your vet before to make sure it will not conflict with any medication your dog might be on.
Q: I have more than one dog, how much should I use?
A: Some of our current customers do use one bag between two or three dogs but we would
always recommend one teabag bag per dog per day, ensuring that the bag is allowed to infuse
as noted on the brewing instructions, to get the maximum bene t.
Q: What recommendations are made when using BOW-WOW products?
A: BOW-WOW seek external advice from a team of experts, including veterinary surgeons, who advise the following: It is not essential, but is recommended, that dogs are over 4 months old before starting any supplement product because their immune and digestive systems may be immature before this age.

A Book-cum-Journal on some of the most heart warming fables of classic Indian movies and how tea played a vita role in them.
‘Tea Talkies’ is a tribute to the creators of Hindi cinema and their art which encompasses myriad aspects of literature, music and culture –an art akin to devotion.
It evokes vignettes from impactful Hindi films which engage, enthuse and enlighten. Cinema about the warmth of relationships, of mutual understanding, of caring conversations, of hope, courage and faith.
And tea as a leitmotif.
Perhaps, we can pause as we hold the cup and view beyond infinity. Perhaps we can reflect on the goodness within and the beauty without. Perhaps we can glimpse grace and courtesy in an interlude.
Cinema and chai – both aspire for eternity in a single moment.
Foreword by Imtiaz Ali
The two great loves of India are brought together to magical effect in Tea Talkies. This beautifully designed book warms your heart – it shows you that just as our lives are incomplete without either tea or cinema , the two are inseparable as well.
