Early reading proved to me that onions are truly valuable health enhancers.
Further reading led to the belief that the outermost onion layer is particularly valuable. Therefore, in the "How Much" post, it seemed a favor to suggest that we not peel beyond the dry, protective portion of the onion peel.
Yet, it became increasingly difficult to visualize the initial semi-tender layer being significantly more power-packed than the basic-tender layers.
Your pet's digestive enzymes are not the same as your digestive enzymes.
Our bodies DO have the digestive enzyme necessary to digest onions. The digestive systems of some animals, such as dogs, cats and guinea pigs, do NOT have the enzyme necessary to digest onions.
All onions, raw or cooked, are a danger – a poison – to these pets.
We will spare you the details here, but even small amounts of onions cause serious distress to their systems. YOU may or may not notice, depending on the amount ingested and the degree of interaction you have with your pet.
Not noticing is one matter. Causing it is another.
