Beets For Liver Support In Dogs And Cats


Wondering about the best food to feed your dog or cat with liver disease?  Dogs and cats (especially pets with liver disease) can benefit from a small, measured amount of beets. Beets contain glutathione, beta carotene, Vitamin C, iron and other vitamins and minerals. Organic beets (not beet pulp which is a controversial filler) is found in many premium raw and freeze-dried raw Beets support natural liver cleansing by increasing oxygenation of the blood and by helping to break down toxic wastes. Beets are high in betalains that help to reduce inflammation and protect against oxida tive damage to the liver. Since beets are high in fiber and sugar, can stimulate bile flow and cause staining of the fur, feed in strict moderation. A few shreds of raw beet go a long way and the amount and frequency should vary by the weight of the pet ranging from 1 - 2 shredded pieces occasionally for a kitty to a half teaspoon daily for a 75+ lb dog with liver disease.
