Parsley is not just an aromatic garnish to be ignored on the side of your plate! This flavorful herb is packed full of nutrition, antioxidants, chlorophyll and disease fighting oils. It is very easy to add to your dog's diet, and inexpensive too! Dogs like to eat grass - it is a well known fact! There is a reason why dogs like to munch on chlorophyll rich greens. Their basic instinct tells them it is good for them, especially for digestive issues!
Grass can be pull of chemical residue and pesticides, so it isn't the ideal source of greens for our dogs. Parsley, however, is a fantastic option!
It also contains highly beneficial chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is known to support a healthy immune system, support healthy red blood cell production, help detox the body (especially from heavy metals), and help fight infection. Most importantly, chlorophyll can help soothe and heal the gut. This is primarily why dogs munch on grass and greens outside when they don't feel well.
Studies have shown that chlorophyll has anti-cancer properties, can help detoxify carcinogens and help reduce DNA damage.
Parsley also contains antioxidants which help prevent or slow damage within the body caused by free radicals!
How to Feed Your Dog Parsley
One teaspoon per 30lbs of weight is ideal for the majority of dogs - if your dog is picky you can blend the parsley with water and mix into their food OR water bowl.
