Handmade smoothie for your dog. Check out the recipe too.

Food

We sometimes make smoothies as a snack for our dogs.

At first, he was on guard, but now he seems to like it very much.

Dogs basically have a habit of swallowing without chewing well, so they often can’t digest vegetables well and their stomachs become loose.

However, smoothie is good for digestion, so it seems to reduce the burden on the stomach and intestines.

We usually use boiled vegetables instead of raw vegetables.

This time, we will introduce vegetables and fruits that can be used for smoothies for dogs and their effects, including recipes.

Vegetables and fruits you want to use in smoothies

Broccoli sprout

It is said to be good for human health, and it was introduced on TV, and it attracted attention because of its high nutritional value.

It is a good vegetable for dogs.

It is also called super food because it is nutritious and has many beneficial effects on the body!

Sulforaphane contained in broccoli sprouts has strong antioxidative effect and slows aging by preventing body oxidation.

It is said that the antioxidative effect lasts for about 3 days from the day you eat.

It is also effective to prevent cancer.

It is rich in vitamins, calcium and dietary fiber, so you can give it raw!

By mincing or grinding broccoli sprouts, you can take in more of the sulforaphane components, and the effect will be further enhanced.

I recommend it for smoothies!

Komatsuna(Japanese mustard spinach)

Komatsuna, which is readily available throughout the year, is one of the vegetables you can give to dogs.

Komatsuna contains more iron and calcium than spinach.

Also, compared to spinach, it contains much less oxalic acid.

Calcium content is second only to kale, and besides vitamin C, vitamin D, and vitamin B, it also contains a lot of minerals.

*Do not give this medicine to dogs with thyroid disease or calculus.

Lettuce

Lettuce doesn’t have scum, so you can give it raw.

Lettuce is mostly water, so you can use it as a water supply.

It is rich in calcium and dietary fiber as well as vitamin C and vitamin E.

It also contains an ingredient called “lactucopicrin” (The white liquid that comes out when you cut the lettuce.), which helps regulate the autonomic nervous system, and is expected to have a relaxing effect on both humans and dogs.

Banana

Many dogs seem to like sweet bananas.

It contains a lot of B-complex vitamins, vitamin C and minerals.

It’s high in calories, so be careful not to give too much.

Apple

Apples are nutritious and easy to digest and absorb, so they are easy to give to dogs.

Vitamins such as Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin B1, and B6 are well balanced. Potassium and pectin are also included.

*Remove the skin and seeds when feeding the apple.

Watermelon

Watermelons are more than 90% water, but they contain a lot of ingredients that are said to be good for dogs.

Watermelons are a summer fruit, but they are an excellent fruit that can replenish water and nourish at the same time.

Please use this when you have a poor appetite.

*Remove the seeds.
