- Go Green! Nutritional Benefits for Animals
Greens are rarely found in a domestic pet’s commercially produced food. However, many experts believe that before animals were domesticated, greens were part of their daily diets.
Living in the wild, a dog or cat would have hunted birds, rodents or reptiles, consuming them whole and receiving green nutrients through the contents of the prey’s stomach. As an alternative for domesticated animals, cereal grasses, such as wheat grass, may be added in moderate amounts to satisfy their attraction to greens.
Pressing Grass Questions
Why do cats and dogs eat grass?
While dogs are considered omnivores and cats carnivores, both are able to digest plants and utilize their nutrients. One theory suggests that dogs and cats used to get greens in the wild when hunting smaller grass-eating prey, but lack this green nutrition in domesticated diets. To satisfy their attraction to greens, cats and dogs may be tempted to eat harmful houseplants or chemically-treated outside grasses. A safer, healthier solution is a container of fresh, nutritious, 100 percent certified organic Pet Greens® Live Pet Grass®. You may choose to grow your own with Pet Greens® Garden self-grow wheat grass kits, or purchase conveniently packaged Pet Greens® Treats made with organic wheat grass.
Do I need to monitor how much wheat grass my pet consumes?
Pets love wheat grass and may devour it quickly, but they should only ingest a small amount of this nutrient-rich treat at a time. Rabbits, guinea pigs, or other smaller animals should be served wheat grass in moderation. Give small clippings per serving or remove the wheat grass after a few nibbles. Consult a veterinarian for advice on proper feeding amounts for each of your pets.

10 Easy Steps to Grow Your Own Wheat Grass
If your dog or cat is an indoor/outdoor pet, limiting exposure to potentially harmful greenery may be a challenge, but you can help divert their attention by providing their own supply of greens. Growing high quality wheat grass isn’t as difficult as you might imagine. With just 10 easy steps in less than two weeks, you can create a nutrient-rich indoor garden for you and your pet.
- Soak 2 cups of wheat grass seed in pure water for 9-12
- Drain the water and germinate the seeds for two days in a sprouting bag or jar, rinsing at least twice a day
- Fill a standard 11" x 12" seedling tray with 1"-2" of soil
- Spread the seeds evenly on top of the soil and water with a sprinkler head
- Cover the seeds with a second tray upside down to keep moisture in and light out during this incubation stage
- Set the tray in a shady spot away from extreme heat or cold – around 70 degrees Fahrenheit is ideal
- Check seedlings daily and moisten if necessary
- Remove cover when seedlings reach 2"-3" tall
- Let the sunshine in! After about three days, your grass will be ready to soak up the sunlight
- Harvest when your wheat grass reaches 7"-10" tall (usually between 10 and 14 days). Cut about one inch above the soil using a serrated knife or scissors
Wheat grass can be juiced or finely chopped into food. Once your pets have been introduced to the taste of wheat grass, they may prefer to nibble straight from the tray.
