Digestive Greens is a health supplement formulated to provide high fiber greens and grasses to support digestion and provide antioxidants. Dogs and cats naturally graze on grass or munch on houseplants (many of which are poisonous!). This instinct, in the wild, would be a means to get chlorophyll into their diet, which is incredibly beneficial for their health. However, these days many of our pets don’t get access to fresh grass and with the common use of pesticides, it’s not ideal for eating. Additionally, lawn grass does not have the same health value and can get caught in the back of a dog or cat’s throat, causing gagging.

What is Chlorophyll?
Chlorophyll is the green pigment found in the chloroplasts of algae and plants. It’s critical for photosynthesis, but also extremely helpful for our pets. It helps aid digestion, cleanses the blood, and helps neutralize odors. We love our furry companions, but pee-yew! Sometimes they can be a little stinky.
Why do our pets need Fiber?
In the wild, our pets would have hunted and killed their prey. Without getting too graphic, by eating their entire hunt, they would have access to roughage and greens through the prey’s digestive tract. This would help them better digest their food and when digestion is optimized, so is absorption of nutrients that they need to thrive.
•Healthy alternative to grazing
•Combats bad breath – supports oral health
A caution: While providing alternatives is an effective way to reduce the chances of your pet ingesting a toxic substance, pet care experts also advocate pet-proofing your house by removing poisonous plants or placing them in areas out of reach.
It’s recommended to start slow with any new product to make sure your pet doesn’t have an adverse reaction due to allergies, a weakened digestive system, or perhaps just because it’s new to them. Start with a 1/4 or 1/2 dose and work your way up over the course of a week to two weeks.
