Dandelion Greens for Dogs
I’ve been adding Dandelion Greens to my dogs’ food for some years now. That led me to adding them to my own summer salads along with their vibrantly yellow flowers.
Then I started to wonder just how many people were aware of the enormous health benefits of Dandelion Greens for dogs.
They’re right up there with kale, cabbage and chard in the nutrients and cancer-fighting departments for both humans and dogs!

Next time you survey your lawn and in despair prepare to break out the weedkiller to rid yourself of the long stems and spiky yellow leaves you see everywhere, spare a thought for the humble dandelion. More than just a pretty weed, the dandelion has been valued as a medicinal plant for thousands of years. As someone who eats dandelions, I’ve even considered growing them specifically for their greens. And that is absolutely true by the way!
Dandelion Greens by the way are the leaves of the plant. A plant said to have been with us for some 30 million years, the dandelion is hated by gardeners and loved by herbalists seemingly in equal measure.
Gregory Tilford, world-renowned author, consultant and teacher in the field of veterinary botanical medicine, calls the dandelion “one of the most complete plant foods on earth.” Now that is very high praise indeed!
Dandelion Greens are rich in protein (double that found in spinach), and gifted with plenty of vitamin A, C, D, K and B-complex. They’re also a good source of potassium, iron, manganese and phosphorus. Perfect as a tonic for the liver, they’re also exceptionally good for the digestive system. And an absolute must if you feed your dog a plant-based vegan or vegetarian diet because of their high protein content. That’s why I included them in my Dog Food Seasoning. To make it easy for every dog to benefit from the power of Dandelion Greens!
