Juicer Pulp Uses For Animals
Feed the Birds
Contributed by Grace from USA
I put the pulp in my platform squirrel/bird feeder. It’s usually gone by day’s end.

I feed the juicer pulp to my chickens and they just love it!
Bait for Groundhogs

I place the pulp as bait in the groundhog trap adjacent to my garden. This has been extremely effective!!
Give to Dog to Ease Constipation
Contributed by Nicole from Virginia
I just started giving my shepherd dog, the pulp from my veggies (organic only) to help her with constipation. I give it to her as soon as it comes out of the juicer so that it has little time to oxidize and spoil. It has really helped her issue with going number two.
And the funny thing is that I wanted to see what Sara says about pulp and she actually mentions letting your dog eat it. I use a single gear juicer (like what Sara uses) so I only give my dog the pulp if it comes from organic produce.
For Dog Food

I remove the pulp and add it to whatever meat I have cooked for the dogs. Ground beef with veggie pulp and a bit of water simmers into a wonderful stew for my dogs. I keep the pulp in a container in the fridge and toss it in with a pound of beef and I get enough food for a few days. I have two wiener dogs. They love it! They’re healthy and have beautiful coats.
Homemade Dog Food

Since my 2-year old schnauzer was 8 weeks old, she has eaten only homemade dog food. I used to have to cut up the vegetables and potatoes. Since I’ve been juicing, I save the pulp in plastic containers in the freezer.
Once a month, when I make dog food, I combine the pulp of broccoli, carrots, and white potatoes in a mixture of ground beef, ground lamb, cooked brown rice, and eggs. I cook the whole thing for about an hour on low and store the mixture in plastic containers in the freezer. Voila, healthy dog food for the month. The best benefit is that she loves it!
Food for Wildlife

I feed the raccoons that come to beg at night. I live at the edge of a preserve area. Makes me feel better than just throwing the pulp out.

My kids and I all suffer from chronic constipation and the fiber in the pulp seems to be the cure. I’ll boil 2 cups of water, throw in a boullion cube and a big handful of pulp and season to taste. It’s good as is or thrown over brown rice or pasta. It’s delicious and does the trick.
I make crackers in my dehydrator.
SUNFLOWER AND FLAX CRACKERS
1 cup ground flax seeds
1/3 cup whole flax
1 teaspoon celtic sea salt
1 clove garlic
¼ onion, chopped
1 1/2 cup water
2/3 sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds
¼ cup black sesame seeds
1 cup or so of veggie pulp
I have also added a small handful of sprouts and they worked well and gave it more flavor
This recipe is very flexible and I just throw in what I want, add a bit more flax and water (makes it gelatinous).
1. Mix all ing. together
Let sit for 30 minutes
Spread on teflex sheet.
Dehydrate at 104 degrees for 8 hours or until top is dry.
Place a mesh dehydrating rack over top of the crackers and flip the tray over to dry the other side of the crackers. Then put the cracker back in the dehydrator on the mesh sheet until crackers are crisp, about 5-8 more hours.
1. All crackers must be dried all the way and then stored in the fridge for no longer that 3 weeks.
Really important to know if wildlife, deer for instance, can digest pulp. They eat carrot pulp like kids with candy because it’s sweet, but does it digest. Does anyone know?
