You can feed as many vegetables as you want at one time. I like to use at two or three in combination.

  1. asparagus
  2. broccoli
  3. Brussels sprouts
  4. cabbage
  5. carrots
  6. cauliflower
  7. celery
  8. corn
  9. dandelion leaves
  10. kale
  11. kohlrabi
  12. okra
  13. parsnips
  14. peas (& pods)
  15. pumpkin
  16. rutabagas
  17. sprouts
  18. squash
  19. sweet potatoes
  20. turnips
  21. zucchini
  • Some squashes may need slight cooking to soften the rind.
  • When using greens like dandelion or kale, just remember the bigger the leaves the more bitter the taste.
  • If you are in the mood, during the early spring, simply go to a field or an area where there is no chemical spraying and pick some dandelion. Remember, the smaller the leaves, the less bitter the taste. If you are not able to pick your own dandelion leaves, then some health food stores and even some grocery stores sell organic dandelion leaves in the produce section.
  • If you are in the mood, during the early autumn, you can go to a field or an area where there is no chemical spraying and dig up some dandelion root.
    • Dandelion leaves are best eaten in the early spring but can be eaten all year.
    • Dandelion roots are best eaten in the early autumn but can also be eaten all year.
    • Just remember that dandelion leaves and roots can be bitter and so don't overwhelm your pet otherwise the bitterness may be too much. But you can test to see where the limit is.
    • It is said that the more bitter a vegetable, the higher its ability to detoxify the body. So if you feed too many vegetables that are bitter then you can also make detoxification happen too quick.
  • A simple rule of paw: vegetables that are darker in colour generally have more nutrition.
    • For example, red cabbage is more nutritious than green cabbage.

Editor's Paw Note

If you want to incorporate the benefits of detoxifying herbs but do not always have access to them, then consider using PetiGreens which is a green food supplement for pets. Not only does a supplement like PetiGreens help to gently detoxify the body but it also provides valuable phyto-nutrients (plant nutrients). PetiGreens is a concentrated whole green food supplement for pets.
