Ellie eats Natures Variety Raw Medallions, gets occasional treats of meat jerky and mini organic raw carrots as a frequent treat. Aside from spring allergies which usually lead to an ear infection once a year, she is
quite healthy and at 2.8 years, is thin and muscular at 13 lbs.
I recently purchased a Vita-Mix for myself to insure that I get my green vegetables as I tend not to cook much. I am making a raw juice (which includes all the fiber) on a daily basis and have discovered that Ellie loves it and practically begs for it when she hears me turn on the machine.
The juice generally contains all raw kale, spinach, 1/2 beet, celery, cucumber, parsley, red or green pepper, carrots and a little bit of either apple, banana, pear,mango or some fruit to sweeten it slightly. I've been giving her about 3/4 cup a day and in a week have seen no ill effects. In fact, her stools, which are often too hard from the Natures Variety raw, have softened up some.
Is this safe for her to drink?
I asked my vet who said they had no idea and see if she gets sick. I would like to find a more medically educated response, but I don't know anyone whose dog loves raw green juice with all its fiber etc.
