This is Cocoa who was the first dog to come here after Beaux died. He made us laugh and healed us from the loss of Beaux.

You cannot take rescue dogs in your home and keep them until you find the right person to adopt them, without you learn what to do to keep them all as healthy as possible. Kim is an avid researcher, who if she sees a problem with any dog, she will hunt and learn what to do to help them. Some of the supplements become a permanent part of every dog’s diet. This is another one of those. Chlorophyll!


As I have stated in every blog in this series, we buy our supplements in bulk form to help save money. This is what chlorophyll powder looks like. It is in a canister in the kitchen and I give each dog 1/8th teaspoon in their bowls.

So why do we give them this supplement?

The Health Benefits Of Chlorophyll

Chlorophyll is a green pigment found in just about all plants and algae. It’s an extremely important compound in photosynthesis, for it actually allows plants to absorb energy from light.

A marvelous and amazing fact is that the molecular structure of chlorophyll is almost identical to hemoglobin, which is found in red blood cells. Hemoglobin and chlorophyll are identical except for one atom. Hemoglobin is responsible for carrying oxygen to all your dog’s organs and cells. The hemoglobin in your dog’s blood has iron as the central molecule while the chlorophyll in plants has magnesium as the central molecule.

When our dogs eat chlorophyll, they’re actually helping to build the health of their blood.

That’s because the chlorophyll will help replenish their red blood cells.

Chlorophyll helps to cleanse all the cells of the body, fight infection, heal wounds, build the immune system and detoxify all systems, particularly the liver and the digestive system. It also promotes digestive health – which is why many dogs with acute digestive problems tend to go for the grass.


As you can see by this photo, you do not need a huge dosage of supplements for small dogs.

So now you know why we give our dogs chlorophyll daily. It is good to keep them as healthy as possible with supplements.
