Juicing for Pets!

We got a new puppy this year. Our Annie Mae died last fall. She was 14 when she left this world. That seemed too soon. I was determined that little Winston would have the best possible chance of living a long, healthy life.
I found a great holistic vet in our area who knows a lot about doggie nutrition including juicing for pets. Her recommendation was to transition Winston to a raw diet by adding small amounts to his kibble or cooked food. That hasn’t turned out to be so easy. He turns up his nose to raw food so I have to lightly cook it on both sides. Then, he’s happy. But he loves the dehydrated food, which the vet says is the same thing without the moisture. Vegetables are incorporated too, which mimic the herbs, vegetation, roots, and berries that would have been the stomach contents of prey animals in the wild. All vegetables should be blended as much as possible, but little veggie snacks like carrots are also fine.

Juice is excellent for pets. Start by mixing 1 or 2 tsp. of juice with their food. All veggies and most fruits are fine, but no citrus, onions, grapes, or raisins. Always blend the gas producers—broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower. Great choices are carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, spinach, kale, green beans, celery, apples, pears, mangoes, and bananas.

This high-nutrition diet should create a healthy pet with a strong immune system, shiny coat, clean teeth, and good energy levels. (Maybe we should all eat about what the dog eats?)
