Sea Vegetables and Their Health Benefits for Dogs

There has been a lot of recent information and product promotion of green foods for our pets in the last few years.

Green foods can include sea vegetables and certain grasses. These foods are considered nutrient rich in amino acids, minerals, vitamins and phytonutrients such as lycopenes and carotenes. Most are considered to be “whole foods” in that they are complete foods and can be fed daily.

Seaweeds are considered the best of these green foods, as they do not require cellulose to encircle the cell wall, which is difficult for dogs to digest.

Seaweeds average about 25% protein and 2% fat. They are one of the richest sources of minerals and amino acids found in a plant source. Their dense amounts of nutrients are thought to help produce energy, enhance the immune system, and darken coat color and skin pigment. Seaweeds are also rich in iodine and support the endocrine glands (thyroid function).

Seaweeds provide many health benefits and promote longevity in animals. Some studies have shown that seaweeds may be helpful in reducing cancer and they are thought to contain anti-tumor properties.

It is also believed they may fight heavy metal accumulations in the body by binding to them and may be helpful after cancer treatments. Seaweeds are also high in tryptophan, which is also helpful in fighting cancer.

While seaweeds may taste salty, they are actually low in salt and are often used as a salt substitute for conditions requiring low sodium diets.

There are also new studies showing seaweeds may be helpful for diabetes and heart conditions.

Probably the best features of these foods for dogs is the high mineral content, phytonutrients, colour enhancement for hair coats and pigment, energy builders, immune enhancers, digestibility, thyroid support and potential cancer protection. The most common sea vegetables include:
