Never heard of this being used for K9s before....

Did a Google "alfalfa powder for dogs"..... And this is just one of the results..
http://www.yourolddog.com/10198/the-...alfa-for-dogs/

It says there are benefits for dogs... But seems there can be problems also... I would suspect it would be very different for a 100lb dog than a 6lb one.....

Good luck

Chlorophyll deodorizes from inside plus has other benefits.

Umm How?

That isn't what chlorophyll does in plants. It certainly isn't what it does in Cows.............

Chlorophyll would have no effect on hydrogen sulfide (the stink in farts) as it is not an enzyme.

So how?

I think it's just the latest fad.
I don't think it has any measurable effects on their scent
