    Default Is Juicing Veggies okay?

    I have gotten in the habit of juicing organic vegetables a few times a week, for health purposes, and truly believe it is the most significant nutritional step you can take for good health.

    I was thinking of giving Baxter some of my juiced veggies (just a small amount) when I juice.

    It would be Broccoli, Carrots, Apples, Celery, and Rainbow Shard.

    Do you guys think this would be a great benefit to his health? Any risks?

    Aspen is on a very strict diet but I do sneak in carrots celery and kale in her diet. Doesn't seem to cause her any problems.

    Just an update on this. As happened with me when I juiced way too many vegetables for my body size one day, Baxter got some diarrhea after he drank the highly concentrated pure vegetable juice. I think maybe it's probably better to just give him the vegetables he can eat. The juice results in significantly larger quantity, and higher concentration of veggies.

    As a sidenote, I had barely given him a half cup of the juice. But still, it's like a powerful wheatgrass shot

    Since so concentrated, you could drizzel just a small amount as a topper over his food and
    add 1 TBSP of pure pumpkin to firm poo (NOT pumpkin pie mix) and see how it goes. I've
    heard veggies need to be slightly cooked (steamed or boiled) to be broken down so dogs
    could absorb nutrients...

    That's probably from the introduction of something new into his system. You could start by diluting it, adding less water every couple of days.

    @TexasCarol You have to blanch any raw vegetables that you feed your pet to break down the layer of cellulose that surrounds almost all plants. The cellulose is what stops them from being fully digested. Freezing or dipping them in boiling water cracks that layer so that the digestive juices can get to the nutrients. This also goes for people.

    Thank you, Bev, for confirming that information. Sending kisses & hugs from me & Cami.
