Immerse Leafy Greens in Water

The best fruits and vegetables to feed your dog are organic, especially if your pet has been diagnosed with osteosarcoma (K9 OSA) or is immune compromised. But alternatively you can use a fruit and vegetable wash to remove pesticide and toxic residue to help protect his or her immune system.

Certified organics do possess higher vitality than run-of-the-mill produce. Additionally, the vitality of organic produce can be raised to an even higher degree by wanding with a zero point wand. It’s also safer to purchase organically raised produce like: spinach, green peas, celery, bell peppers, green beans, potatoes, squash, apples, peaches, nectarines, pears, cherries strawberries, blackberries and raspberries since they are known to be sprayed with a higher level of pesticides to protect them. And vegetables like broccoli trap pesticides in their intricate florets.

But if organics are difficult to find or a bit pricey for your pocketbook, regular supermarket fare can be soaked in an inexpensive homemade solution to remove the toxins and your dog can still have nutritious, fresh, home cooked meals. Just remember that a quick rinse is never enough to remove chemicals, bacteria, soil, mold, and possibly insect parts. This includes pre-washed, bagged salads since E. coli bacterium tends to grow quickly on veggies.

Most people wash fruits or vegetables with dish washing detergent. However, dish washing liquid is not as effective as once thought and definitely not recommended for human consumption. But this little homemade produce-wash will allow you to clean the fruits and veggies you use to prepare your dog’s meals, reduce toxic residues and remove most pesticides.

Check out the video below. First wash your fruit and vegetable to remove any dirt.

Then for an easy fruit and vegetable wash to protect your K9 osteosarcoma dog’s fragile immune system,  fill a large container of fresh water to which ¼ glass of 3% hydrogen peroxide and 3 tablespoons of baking soda has been added. Soak your fruits and vegetables for 10 minutes. Rinse and they are ready to eat or cook.
