A fresh, green juice is an incredible way to kick-start your day with a healthy dose of energy and vitamins. The benefits of juicing don’t stop with your two-legged family members, either! The vitamins and minerals in vegetables provide the same health benefits and immune-boosting properties to our dogs.
When juicing for myself, I always do a little extra for Sasha;-)
Either serve it in a side dish, or save it to add to their kibble for a extra punch of nutrients. When juicing for your dog, make sure to avoid garlic, onions and grapes, and remove any seeds before juicing, even if your juicer can handle them.
When you’re finished juicing, don’t throw away the pulp! Simply mix it with a little bit of coconut oil & organic yogurt and add some to your dog’s food for a kick of fiber and fun, or make dog treats out of the leftover pulp.
Juice-pulp treats are extremely low-calorie and very easy to make.
8 cups juice pulp 1 cup ground flax seed 1 large egg .
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and spread out onto two baking sheets. Use a pizza cutter to score the treats into squares or rectangles of various sizes. Place in the oven at 175 degrees for 2 hours, flipping once during cooking. If the treats are not completely dry, reduce heat to 140 and continue cooking. Store in an airtight container.
oH.!!! ...We also use the pulp juice to fertilize our Veggie Garden.
