The other day I came across an article where people claimed to be giving their dog this fruit juice called MonaVie:
“A particular vendor, MonaVie, is an acai berry juice blend said to prevent parvovirus, a highly contagious disease that infects dogs and cats and can cause respiratory or cardiovascular failure.”
[Editor’s Note: To my knowledge MonaVie hasn’t been tested in dogs or cats and food hasn’t been shown to prevent viruses like parvovirus.]
Previously, I had also read about people giving MonaVie to their dog in hopes that it will with their arthritis. Since we love dogs we want to pass this message along:
MonaVie Can Harm Your Dog!
The ASPCA, through extensive research has determined that grapes and raisins can cause acute renal (kidney) failure in dogs. One of the main ingredients in MonaVie is white grape juice. Giving MonaVie to your dog may be poisoning him/her.
As always we urge all pet owners to be aware of foods that are harmful to their pets. Some foods that are quite healthy to people, like grapes in this case, can be silent and deadly killers.
